Concept Art Mini Challenge: Reference & Research

I will be posting on this thread reference/ character bios/ inspiration for the upcoming CONCEPT ART mini challenge.

The idea is to develop concept art that will be used for future HCR modeling & FXwars mini challenges.

The First Challenge will be
THE MANY WORLDS of FLASH GORDON
Mongo is a fictional planet where the comic strip (and later movie serials) of Flash Gordon take place. It is ruled by a usurper named Ming the Merciless, who governs with an iron hand.

Mongo is inhabited by different cultures. Some are technologically advanced, but they are falling under the domination of the tyrant Ming. Flash Gordon succeeds in unifying them against Ming, eventually removing him from power.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mongo_(planet)


Planetary description

Mongo is much like the Earth. Its atmosphere is compatible with Terran life, and the dominant species on Mongo is the Homo sapiens. Other intelligent species exist, either Homo sapiens variants or others of a humanoid pattern, such as the Lion Men. Mongo's gravity is slightly weaker than the Earth's, which allows Flash Gordon to put his gymnastics skills to good use.

Mongo has a variety of climates. Part of the planet is covered by the forest kingdom of Arboria, ruled by Prince Barin. An area of mountains and caverns makes up the frozen kingdom of Frigia, ruled by Barin's cousin, Queen Fria. Beneath the Sea of Mystery is the underwater kingdom of Coralia, ruled by Queen Undina. Bordering the sea is the Land of the Lion Men, ruled by King Thun.

East of the Lion Men's kingdom are the Magnetic Mountains, where Ming the Merciless established a new base of operations after he was defeated and removed from Mongo's throne. North of this is the Sky City of the Hawk Men, led by Vultan. There is also the jungle continent of Tropica, ruled by Queen Desira, and the Fire Lands, home of Gundar the Desert Hawk. Mongo also has extensive underground domains.

One question: This topic is not still for painting? Only for collecting reference for future sketching?

I plan to launch phase one next week.

I just want a collective plave to post reference...

I want the design work to have a strong influence on real life. After all, this should be treated like concept art that will be used by modellers.

Sounds brilliant! I'll be watching this thread and compiling a load of references.

I know absolutely NOTHING about Flash Gordon...
