    ~ BI-WEEKLY CHALLENGE THREAD ~

    For those of you who frequent the conceptart.org forums this should be pretty familiar; tens of artistic combatants thrown together in to an artistic arena, each struggling for the honor of being dubbed a master of the visual arts. Those of you who succeed will be bathed in glory and the blood of their competitors, those of you who fail will be exiled to a life of shame and isolation.

    The aim of this thread is to try and spice things up a bit here in the ol' Artist's Corner. This thread is for entries in to the challenge or the discussion thereof. If you'd like to suggest a topic for the weekly challenge, go right ahead, but understand that the last winner of the challenge has total control over the task (unless they have won more than two challenges in a row, see rules).

    The rules are simple;

    RULES:
    • One entry per person, per challenge.
    • A contestant cannot win more than two challenges in a row.
    • Winner gets the privilege of choosing the next challenge.
    • At the end of a challenge, the thread is locked and a new one is begun.
    • Stick to the challenge topic; no going off on a tangent.
    • All formats welcome, whether they be traditional or digital; 2D or 3D; still or animated.

    If you're looking for inspiration, check out the aforementioned conceptart.org forums (specifically the creature/environment/character of the week sections).

    It's amazing how quickly I fell out of practice with Blender when I started focusing on drawing.

    On the plus side, I may be practiced enough with a pencil to draw this. :D

    Ha, I like that, very clever.

    I started this but my photo editor/ paint program at work crapped out before I saved it....I was only 40 minutes in but *shrugs shoulders* it wasn't that great an idea to begin with.

    Perhaps we should extend this to a bi-weekly challenge?

    Yes bi-weekly would be better.

    I'm stuck at work and I detest painting with a mouse. So a rush job and a basic colour palette is all your going to get.

    Apologies for the bland idea, what can I say, I'm just not very creative.

    That would be a good idea. The AC isn't as hardcore as CA.

    Actually I think it finished last friday, but no-one really mentioned a cut-off date. Should we push it out to a month?
    Say yes or i'll internet punch you in the face.

    For me, I think having a slightly quicker turn around would be good. Run this thing for 3 weeks- then spend a week voting/ getting the winner to decide the next contest.

    If we let it drag on too long, people get distracted by shiny things....



    ...woo, whats that over there...pretty...

    If you wanted to, you'd probably be able to slip something into this one before it's locked.

    Thank you! It's actually part of a collection of work which I screenprinted myself.

    I've not submitted anything to Threadless in a long time but maybe it's worth sending something their way. I'm actually working with a company which is setting up something similar to Threadless, so will be producing shirts for them. Busy busy...

    Thanks also Cyber -- your piece is sweeeeeet!

    So um....
    Let's start thinking of ideas for the next one. It's depressing when stickied threads die.
    Some of the ideas from before were pretty popular, like the devil's teapot. Any other ideas?

    Design an illustrated playing card for use in a game like Magic the Gathering?

    Shit, I completely forgot about this thread. Um, I guess the challenge is closed. I'll ask Mars if he can set up a voting thread to decide on a winner.

    EDIT: Remember, the winner gets to choose the next topic.
