Hey guys and gals!

Just placing my thread up, going to do both 2d and 3d this challenge! Sketches coming soon!

Hey guys and gals!

Alright, well I was deciding on whether to do my 2d with the super old people gang or do that in 3d, decided to do them in 3d, so that means my second Idea im going to do here:

The idea:

I was going to have a really muscular guy, muscles on muscles, and then some more muscle, and then I would have a really skinny big brained short nerdy guy. They would be the duo to save the world from evil. Each will have their own distinct personalities, they are laughed at by the cops and public because after they save someone or save the world from evil, something awekward happens giving credit to another individual who was at the right place at the right time. They never get the credit they deserve, but without them, the world would not be a safe place. They are unlucky but lucky at the same time by fighting for justice and freedom!


I will start the sketches tonight or tommarrow so you have a better Idea of what im going for...

I was also thinking about making this like a poster rather then a shot of them fighting. I havent decided yet...

Nice idea!

Maybee find a way to make it the big muscle dudes fault for them loosing credit!

Nice idea...
Are you designing the same concept in the 3d challenge?

well I finally spent some time on this challenge. This is the character that I will be doing for the challenge: Here is his description:

Crazy Jacky:

The most villainis of villains. He is the essence of the 7 sins and strives for destruction, riches, and mayhem, all bringing back a smile to his sadistic grin and black heart. The Irony of the situation is his greed struck him with a curse all men fear! The curse of being pregnant and going through everything women do! Oh the horror and pain, imagine him having to breast feed in the middle of destroying the world!!! The Egg will be a golden egg, but rather then riches being inside, a curse is let loose and a letter explaining this is shown..


Hope you all like it. The final Pencil drawing is done. I will finish the coloring and the background tommarrow hopefully. Stay tuned!

:love: There are so many things I like about this character that I don't know where to
I hope you have time to color this, though your "sketches" are polished enough IMO that they could stand as finished pieces of concept art.
I love how his hat is sitting on top of his afro.:D

Hey all, well this should be my final image for this challenge, I wish I had more time to creat a whole gang, but maybe some time in the future, it would be nice to have colored this with a wacom also, but the old trusty mouse completed the job. If I end up having more time within the next couple days, Ill try to work more with the color of the piece, we'll see!

wildsheepchase- thanks a ton for following my stuff, im glad you like the character! ;)
