Well, this time like others, I seem to be a day late and a dollar short for the contest. I guess you can't blame a guy for trying. I wanted to go for sort of an enchanted rainforest feel for my piece. that's why this character was designed with a veiled chameleon in mind. hope you like my start.

Cool design, I enjoy the tree/ax/staff. :buttrock:

There's still plenty of time to get this done, looks like you have a good start already. Welcome.

k here's sort of a convoluted or whatnot sketch I did to get my idea on paper. the idea is this: guy with little axe walking through rainforest ready to chop down some trees. happy and whistling, unaware he has pissed off the wrong creature. mr. tree guardian sitting up in the canopy with an axe that can chop the little man in half. what do yas think?

What I think is that it reminds me a bit too much to elfufu's thing in the challenge.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUUUURRRGH! I just saw it. I guess there's still something called origionality here. I'll try to do better.

I like the pose though, maybe he could be staring in a pool of water or something...

I'm working on a new on as we speak. Mr. tree guard is leaping from a tree at YOU with axe brandished.

Don't get me wrong. I mean no harm.
06-01-2002, 11:43 PM
no, no, no. I mean at the viewer. please keep giving me crits. I'm still learning.
You could reverse the angle and have your character jumping out of the tree down upon the unsuspecting victim. That could be equally dramatic.

Here's my idea (surprisingly similar to kirt's yet I had yet to read it at the time). don't love me judge me.

This looks great now!
Waiting for a clean draft and color.

I'll update a more finalized sketch ready to scan soon

I like the chamelion style feet and tail you gave your dude in that last sketch. Those are definite improovements over the orriginals. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'm looking forward to see your work!!!:wip:

UPDATE IT MAN! I know what you mean about the food stamps.
06-11-2002, 06:24 PM
tee hee. Thanks for all of the feedback guys! sorry aout the long time with no updates. I was in vegas visiting my dad. Also, I'm enlisting in the army on June 16th. Hopefully I'll be able to get pretty finished with this by then. here's a small update. I'll fix the hands gripping the axe soon. But please, feel free to critique the hell out of it.

D'OH! I'm being a god damn post whore again! B.T.W. I've been studying the hell out of feng zhu, masamune shirow, and muira kentauro's work just to name a few. I hope the knowlege will help me on this contest.

It's too late now, but I wanted to show a new design. what do you think?
06-17-2002, 03:12 PM
Nice job, but that shoulder guard looks a little to big. It sticks out to much, and the character is way to stiff. I guess it depends on the situation though, is he being knighted? Seeing as he's hurt he should maybe be slouching a bit more.
Nice job. :thumbsup:

Befor ya die, ya see elves...hehehe.
Great, but I agree with Gamoron.
Hope to see a finished one of ya at the end of the challenge.
06-18-2002, 10:57 AM
Looking good! :thumbsup:
Would love to see it finished. You still have 2 weeks.
06-18-2002, 01:14 PM
2 WEEKS?well damn, I'll get it finished pronto!
06-18-2002, 04:48 PM
here's a quick sketch to illustrate my new idea. whereas the other sketch was one of hope (that's why he stiffened up to try to meet the fairy) this one is of despair. it seems that time has run out for this man. he's older and more wounded in this one and he's staring at the fairies with contempt. yes that is a crown lying at his feet. what do you think? (the jpeg's really compressed)
06-18-2002, 05:36 PM
That's much better! Way better posing. But why contempt?
Clean it up and post it again.:thumbsup:

Lil' update here. cleaned up the king, and begin on bg. I'll photoshop in the elves/faeries later. (I've been watching WAY too much Lodoss).
