Water Wheels

Alright, I'm calling it a day on this thing finally. Time to move on to the Bass Reeves challenge.


Wednesday, June 8, 2011

working on quicker, simpler, more textural ways to make an image, also trying to make them a little more fun to look at. Need to think about different body variations. no more small leg top heavy guys.

Tree Fort

Was trying to find a more efficient way to work with structures and stuff and ended up with this. Just loosened up and had this in about an hour. I have another one that isn't much more than this and been working on for more than a week. Complete fail!! I'll post that one up tomorrow I hope.

Have a killer weekend guys,

Rugged LawMan of the Old West

Alright fellas,

This challenge centers around an actual historical figure, by the name of Bass Reeves. The design doesn't have to be based exactly upon him, but his life and experience should influence it. The same way movie or animated characters may be 'inspired by' real-world people and personalities.

a short biography can be found here:

Gentlemen, have at!

Let the Samurai fly

What better way to kick this off than by having our good buddy Dante Leandado join the fray with his powerful Eskimo Samurai contribution. Did I forget to mention the powerfulness??

Here is my eskimo samurai. i got a bit stupid with it, this thing is out of control. ha. i may do another. -Chris

I got six more on the way. But here's a few until they are ready. -Craig

Here's mine...finally.

I felt the need... do another. after being embarrassed. hopefully this one is a bit more interesting to look at. still quick but more successful i think.

Eskimo Samurai

Aright guys, I'm going on vacation tomorrow night. Corey wants some time to finish up his project. So I am going to call a post date of Monday May 9 for myself to take the pressure off. It will give everyone some time. But that is it MAY 9th...noooooo pressure whatsoever. No one will be declared unpowerful for not posting on May 9th...just weak and unmighty.

The title says it all. Create a human Eskimo Samurai, with the primary focus being Eskimo.

Have a great week guys!!

Koala Elder

Wise Old Elephant

super rushed coloring and super boring compared to Craig's. i have much to learn

Elder Moose

Not fully realized, I know. But wanted to at least post the sketch/idea. Would have to tweak a lot of stuff to get something solid. Definitely some muscles I haven't worked in a long time...

Topic: The Animal Elder

FIgured we could do some exercises since we are 3 strong now. I am not sure when these should be "due" but they shouldnt take too long. I imagine we could use these as opportunities to get better, which i suppose is always the idea.
I figured, try to have a sketch/drawing posted within two days of a topic. Let me know if that is too short or unrealistic.
also, we should take turns picking the topic.

on to the topic:
The character is the Animal Elder. He is the oldest and wisest of the animal tribe. what kind of animal? who knows! He is the animal that all other animals come to for his sage advice. he has been around longer than anyone can remember. the animal elder needs to have his "seeing into the future" device. again, what this device looks like is up to you but he must have it.
anyway, that is all. have fun.

blowing off steam

needed a break from some of the crap i have been doing, here is something bad for fun, and for even more fun, I uploaded a video of the terribly inefficient process
