July 4th, 2008, 11:12 AM
Okay im in :) I will try. This is my first challenge in this forum ( i guess in any forum ) so want to make it clear, can i post the finsihed piece hear or do i have to post it wip by wip ? :)
July 4th, 2008, 07:23 PM
screw wip by wip! you can show us wips if youd like but just post the finished product :)
July 4th, 2008, 07:46 PM
shikamaru anyone? :)
Leave it in the kiddie pool. This is the deep end.
I want to participate, but I've got no idea what to do! I'm thinking rats and roaches and blood and battle. And maybe cookie crumbs and sewers.

sorry for making a joke.
here s a lil WIP
July 5th, 2008, 04:17 PM
graywolff: Pretty cool so far, I like the hands.
Here's my sketch. Was gonna try for something a little more.. serious? But you win some, you lose some, and some just run off giggling like crazy. Especially since the word was "owner" of shadows, rather than "master."
Incidentally, shadows are difficult to housetrain.
There's some wonky stuff going on with her torso that needs fixing...
July 5th, 2008, 04:48 PM
Coming along... What do you all think?
I think im going with this one, needs alot of work...
July 5th, 2008, 06:01 PM
I'm not sure what to do with his right arm
which version do you think I should develope further?
July 5th, 2008, 06:07 PM
I dono but i think maybe have him drawing some runic symbol in the air would be cool :/
July 5th, 2008, 06:39 PM
I personally like the second version more, especially since the canvas doesn't cut off right above the figure's head. Plus, I think the mass of shadow above him could take on some interesting shapes!
Tri_beer: I like the colors of his robe... very cool.
July 5th, 2008, 07:26 PM
quick first idea
July 5th, 2008, 08:28 PM
Rockett: Very funny :) loving the expression on the shadow's face :D
Tri_beer_gut: looking good so far! try rendering it some more, it looks like its all blended into a bit, its probably just me but i cant tell whats happening with his right arm, but its looking very very good so far! :D
Cecill: Maybe his arm could be pointing ? kind of like the man in http://www.success.co.il/knowledge/images/Pillar2-Supernatural-GodCreates-Man-Sistine-Chapel.jpg
July 5th, 2008, 09:44 PM
Rockett - Hahaha such a cute concept. Little shadow poop :D That'll be a fun one.
And for Cecill - Damn nice torso - Can't wait to see it done.
Done by July 17th? It's been a while since I did a challenge... But I think I'll join up on this one *rushes off to doodle*

Studies and Thumbs.
July 6th, 2008, 04:17 PM
thanks everyone for you suggestions
I spent some more time on this, but I'm not happy with the result. It looks like in the beginning it looked better :(
maybe I'll start another one (if I won't be too lazy) and I hope it'll be better than this one
July 6th, 2008, 05:41 PM
hrmmmm, maybe try repositioning his right arm? it looks like its too stiff and strapped to his body. idk , do whatever these are just suggestions :)
July 7th, 2008, 01:27 AM
Judging by these preliminary sketches, I don't think I have a chance in frozen hell but these challenges certainly help improve my work. I'll see what I can cook up.
July 7th, 2008, 05:05 AM
I finally got me a darned job and as such didn't have time to finish for the last challenge. Hopefully I can pull it off this time.
July 7th, 2008, 06:32 AM
the_Amaranth, dont talk like that,! its not about the outcome, its about the process :) (for most things...)
July 7th, 2008, 12:47 PM
Ok so got a base render to paint over
July 8th, 2008, 03:26 AM
Evil_Sloth, that looks sick what did you use to make that?
July 8th, 2008, 06:17 AM
As I said before, if I won't be too lazy I'll paint another one, but for now it's my final
July 9th, 2008, 01:41 AM
So....anyone under 20 can join right? Can I? :o
Does it have to be coloured all the time?
July 9th, 2008, 05:17 AM
kool- yeah you can enter , pretty sure your allowed to do anything apart from photos.:)
This is very much in progress , still got to add the shadow owner bit:P
Great work guys keep it up.
July 10th, 2008, 05:55 PM
When I said I was going to cook something up, I was dead serious.
I tried to play around with curvilinear perspective (http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=123667) for this one.
a la bapsi
July 10th, 2008, 06:44 PM

July 12th, 2008, 11:40 AM
So far I think everyone's produced some great work. I especially like Evil Sloth's latest painting and the hilarious work from Rockett. I have a day off today, so hopefully I can make some progress fast.
July 12th, 2008, 01:42 PM
I discovered this thread today and I'll give it a try :). Here is a wip:
July 13th, 2008, 07:03 AM
Another one, but I started to small (image size) so have some problems with details and such:
July 13th, 2008, 09:30 AM
July 13th, 2008, 03:35 PM
owner of shadows, its a guy called shadow from the marvel universe made an appeaence in the justice league when lex luthor tried to destroy the justice league MUHAHAHA, any what I'm in.
July 13th, 2008, 04:18 PM
Here goes nothing...
July 14th, 2008, 02:46 AM
Got an idea, may be a little bit overdone but whatever.
Time to make something in a jiffy.
July 14th, 2008, 05:34 AM
Nice idea Amaranth :)
Heres my try :asspat:
July 14th, 2008, 10:07 AM
Final, the dude in white is the owner of the Shadow club/brothel. Theres a guy with a mo-hawk hiding behind the statue on the left who beat up one of the girls so the owner is comming out to bust his ass up.

Awesome rendering, Sloth!
July 15th, 2008, 02:01 PM

(NOT my final yet )
July 15th, 2008, 03:01 PM

July 16th, 2008, 03:30 PM
Of course Lilith had gotten the trouble shadow of the litter. But it was time to set him straight.
July 18th, 2008, 01:01 AM
Heres my entry attempt was pretty lazy on it. Evil_sloth your peice is amazing man great job ,very keen eye for detail and lighting.
July 19th, 2008, 01:28 AM

I know I'm late...I gave up on my entry a couple of days ago...wasn't gonna enter it but just now I though "oh what the heck, might as well....hopefully I'll get some crits..."
So yeah....I'd love some crits, on the colours especially...really screwed that one up ^^;
July 19th, 2008, 06:41 AM
