DWIV - Mini Challenge #1 - War General Portraits 2D




2D Challenge
It's time to gather up your creativity, pull together your talents, and get ready for a new kind of warm up competition in the Dominance War series - Mini Challenges! Although the theme is separate from the main epic event, world champion standings are assured for the best mini comp entries!

To commemorate a new class of competition, we will be using a modified theme from Dominance War I. So this year's first ever Concept Art mini topic is:

War General Portraits!
The rules are simple - create a portrait of a leader capable of leading troops to victory! Your war general portrait can be from any time period and any race. As long as he/she/it looks like a war general, has the appropriate team war logo somewhere on the body/clothes, and has the appropriate team colors [found here], everything is good!

This challenge is here for those desiring to practice their art before the main event. So keep it easy, keep it quick, and keep it real.

Rules:

You have 9 days (2 weekends plus 5 days) to finish.

Additional Notes:
- Artists can only join 1 team for any event during dominance war IV. If you start with polycount, you cannot enter another mini challenge or the main event with gameartisans or cgsociety.
- You are not required to enter all challenges. Pick the ones you like, and join.
- Posting your work in progress in this single thread is ABSOLUTLY MANDATORY.
- You can only submit one "up to" 1000x1000 350k max final image. 200w x 1000h is fine. 999w x 500h is fine. This image must include your team logo, your War General's name, and your personal name and/or contact details.
- Only 1 entry per person. Do not create or try to create multiple entries with different user names.
- Final submissions are final. If you upload your final image 4 days before the deadline, do not ask us to change it. Make sure you are happy with your image before you submit it into the system.
- Public voting starts Thursday March 5th to March 8th to find each team's best 5. Each teamís best 5 entries then gather together into a single pool and a grand mini champion chosen and announced with all other Dominance War IV event champions in June.

Deadline:
March 2nd Monday Night 11:59 Eastern time. Voting Starts March 5th.

Portraits! What an awsome idea One question, since a lot of portraits are done in three quartre profile, or at least the body is, how should we go about fitting the the symbol in? Are the vector images meant to be used directly or as reference, ie, are we allowed to bend it a little for perspective reasons or do we have to keep it flat?

My progress on a war general after about 3 hours. Unsure of his name at this point.

Okay here we go.Ö
I got up at 5 am to get started on the challenge before going to work. Iím in Argentina, so I was happy to see the rules up by then. Thereís nothing outstandingly original here, but Iíve got to finish my entry in three days cuz Iím off on a trip. So pleas let me know what you think, and witch character I should stick with. I know the guy looks a little young but heís kind of like an Alexander type, I figured no one would go for a young guy. Heís got the gift of foresight and heís blind.
Well hope to hear from you, and my prayers are with you all. We will prevail!

much like REKLAS did, place the logo like it is part of the clothing. it could even be a tattoo, a medal, jewelery... anything.


awesome start everyone!

live2contage: In my opinion I think you should stay with the monkey think you can create something more interesting and original with that idea.

Hi there ! Can't stop workingon this concept
Here is a b&w first lay out. I am not very happy with the chin... I think i'll make some modification on the facial structure probably to make the character more agressive.
Crits and advises are welcome.
I start to see some gooooood stuff already there, so goodluck for all the mates.

Cheers
