Captain Hook!
He is scourge of Never land. He commands over "The Jolly Roger" with his pirate crew. The only thing stopping him are his two deadly enemies, Peter Pan and the crocodile named "Tic Tok".

That is your micro challenge for this week. Design your own visions of how you think Peter Pan's adversary looks like.

Maybe you see him with as cyborg or maybe you want to be inspired by the description on the original version of the story.
>>Original Story Link<< (http://www.literature.org/authors/barrie-james-matthew/the-adventures-of-peter-pan/index.html)
There is only one rule, and that is to include with your design what kind of category your design belongs to:

The categories are:

Costume Design/Character Design (For live action, 2D, or 3D)
Book Cover (thanks Batavia for inspiring this idea) NEW!
Comic Book/ Graphic Novel/ Children's Book
Game Character
Toy Line
Visual Effect Shot
Other

The topic is very specific but please let your imagination run.
Too keep it tidy please post your WIP and final version in this thread. The winner of the contest will receive and un-official CG-Networks NO PRIZE on the mail


Looking forward to your entries.

-Roberto

i actually just completed a peter pan assignment for my Illustration 2 class about two weeks ago. i went about designing my rednition of Captain Hook (who was hardly visible in the final piece). but here's some very early character sketches i did for (from L to R), hook, peter pan, and an unused concept of hook. i'll post a more clearer drawing soon

i guess the innovative part about my Hook is that each of his fingers are hooks themselves. they have joints just like standard fingers, but they're completely mechanical and..yeah, hooks on the ends of each finger. :)

Yarrrrrr! Here be the swarthiest sea-dog ever to swizzle a mizzen or whatever...
Not so much a re-design as it is a twisting of existing designs. I figure Cap'n Hook's got a problem keeping his head in a fight if he keeps losing to a boy who never grew up...

Love it. RandomThoughts!


a couple ideas below

I kinda want to make Captain Hook:

A)a DJ who's hand is a turntable arm.

B)a neglegted child with no friends but his stuffed aligator.

C)a substitute teacher for a class of children out of control.

I'll post a few sketches later.

dang. This is gonna be a cool thread. If I have time, I had some ideas, but time is the one thing I'm short on.


keeganb_2000: That is sweet. I think I like the first concept better though. Maybe it's the tail. I don't know. But overall, that's a neat concept.

teknotek83: hooks on each finger? Rockin'!

Ok this is what I've decided on, I got rid of the tail Fungusmonkey I think I agree with you on losing the tail. It seemed a bit corny or something!
I've put the original pencil sketch in there aswell as I thought I lost alot when I went over it in ink. So there you have it, Captain hook as a Demon reborn!

So far the only 2 that really impressed me are
tekila and archeophants.

They show true originality and style.
I'm quiet burned out on the "make everyone just half human half robot" or "just make him really really really evil" style.
Just adding a huge gun or sword does not equal new character either.

Obviously the other ones have gotten good praise from others on here, but i wanted to single out the ones that haven't really and mainly because they aren't the 'usual' style to go with.

Well mine is a little more traditional, but the sketch was done in 10 minutes (seriously - whew!!) Taking inspiration from the classic Disney film and liking the whole "hook nose" thing. lol

Character Design: Captain Hook

A quickie sketch to use as a basis for a color test, which is coming next.

I need to do a few tests to determine what sort of bird I want on his arm.

Originality? What's that? Mine is pretty close to other designs I've seen in movies. I've always liked the design as it is, but I'm planning to make this a darker, yet still suave, version of Hook.

Character Design - Color test

I was throwing in some color (man, I suck at color -- I really need some help) and decided to change the Hook composition a little bit.

I've only just now managed to get an FTP program so I'm gonna post the sketch as well as the developement and final comp here.

I envisioned a "cyborgy" type guy and sux to the boy/girl who said it's an unoriginal concept. I don't see his/her stuff here.

I like the ones on here, some cool stuff. Well here's my contribution to the scourge of Neverland.

Oh and it's in the comic character category.

Enjoy.

This is the first time I have taken part in one of these, so please be gentle :)

Anyway, I let my imagination run a little wild with this (trying to be original?).

Rodrigue and Pedro Toledo>> I love both of your pieces, your rendering of everything looks GREAT! I'm trying to get into doing my 2D stuff with a painted feel to it and can I ask what software you use?

atw>> I love your concept and in my opinion the most unique concept on this thread! Very well done

I did a little more color work on the concept. Definitely a different direction from my original colors. I need to give it a more distinct light source and, of course, finish it. The composition is going to change a bit, too.

This image is just a cropped portion of the whole:
