Why - I haven't entered and dropped out of a challenge in weeks!

Well, I can't promise I'll have the time to really attempt any of these, but I had a couple of ideas (that and my folder of "things to finish" was looking hungry...), so here are a selected three:

Filo-fat :

Sheldon was born unto two up and coming yuppie types in 1980's New York. Their constant career driven attitude leaving a child whom substituted love for food. They would explain it away as 'bad glands' (glands that ask for extra bacon), but the truth was plain for all to see. Many wept at the sight before them, many shook their heads, many pointed, laughed and prodded it with a stick. It wasn't long before Sheldon had gained so much weight that his very vision was obscured by flab - so his quick thinking (and sharply dressed) parents labelled each 'roll' of Sheldon for quick and easy access... This act of kindess was to brand him with a new name, the name smeared on the sides of trucks... - The Incredible Filo-fat

Steve has a hard life.

Erm... A pleasent chap who only appears angry when it's cold.

I have more - but considering my track record I think I'll leave them in my head.

:surprised

I think the first concept Filo-fat has quite the potential AJ_23......Hope you can find the time and get it done and give the concept true 3D justice...good luck,have fun.:thumbsup: :beer:

These are hilarious! I'm probably going to get hit in the head by someone just because of that, but I maintain that they are very, very funny. :)

Can't wait to see some (or all) of them dressed up in polygons...

DRAWINGS ARE GOOD

I THINK YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A DESIGN THAT IS MORE FEASABLE. SOMETHING THT COULD ACTUALLY EXIST IN A SIDESHOW.

Thanks for the comments guys!

To some of you:

halo - I don't understand, and I'm a little scared.

ZrO-1 - Where have you been hiding!

Jacob - Where's the fun in that!

Okay, I've opted to make Steve the model for this challenge, firstly because the others would have been a pain in the arse and secondly because DimitrisLiatsos said so. :D

All of bit dull at the moment I'm afraid, top half of his head/buttocks and a gap awaiting his all important foot. I'm not very happy with the shape of his eyes so I think I'll have to play with them a bit more...

Anyway, the ball is (slowly) rolling! Woo!

This is so very Terry Gilliam, somehow... Lovely! But remember that whatever you come up with, Sasquatch will make it look poorly executed no matter what :D

Glad you went for Steve, potentially the wackiest one of the bunch. Perhaps you could have someone spoon-feeding him by shoving it up his arse?

halo, I'll take those full-stops to imply "where's your update you lazy bastard".... :scream:

Well, once again I've not judged my time well with this challenge (I really really should make that my signature), but here's a couple of screengrabs from when I last played around with this guy...

Starting's of a foot

Wire

It's not much (clearly!) - but hopefully some toes and a proper foot by the end of the challenge! Oh and the mesh has some pretty crap topology, but hopefully I'll make things neater when the foots finished.

Sorry for being crap!

I really like Steve, you know... Are you going for an all-nighter on the 20th or something here? :D
