HCR MINI-Challenge #41: Heroes of Saturday Morning


Copyright Disney, Hanna Barbera, Wizrds from the Coast, Nickedolean.
The challenge is done for educational purposes and no items of value are exchange.
Please don't sue...

Heroes of Saturday Morning


The challenge:
Model character, environment, vehicle or machine based on a Cartoon shown on Saturday Morning.
It can be from any era, 60's, 70's, 80's or 00's.
It can be western animation or Anime.

Imagine you have been commissioned to build a model based on Saturday Morning characters.

The model can be an exact copy of a character for a 80's series, or your own interpretation...


Now show it to us.


NOTES:



  • All MODELS MUST BE BASED ON DETAILED RESEARCH YOU HAVE TO POST your sources on your WIP thread.
  • All Artist of original concept art must be given credit
  • If you decide to do an original interpretation of a character, please post ALL concept all art.
And yes...


First check out the mater list of Cartoons we have gathered so far...

See list at the end of this post...

There are FOUR ways to participate:
  • BEST ORIGINAL INTERPRETATION OF ESTABLISHED CHARACTER



    For this type of entry you can do an original interpretation of your favorite

    character

    Some examples:
    • Show us your version of Scooby Doo
    • Show us the characters from



      Dungeons & Dragons (CBS, 1983-1985)

    • Show us your version of the Gummy Bears

  • BEST VEHICLE/ BUILDING/ MACHINE
    This type of entry requires you will try to a model of your favorite Building/Vehicle /Machine
    Some examples:

    • He-Man riding to battle on top of Battlecat

    If it was a cartoon, it came with a toyline. You may sculpt an exact likeness of a 80's action figure..
    Some examples:
THE CHALLENGE:___________________________

Sculpt, in a period of 1 month and two weeks, one or more 3D representations of a building, vehicle, machine and or environment based on extensive research... For this challenge, attention to detail an imagination are essential.

The idea of this "mini-challenge" is to simulate an impossible deadline for a project. The artists will have at their discretion how detailed the models they will be working on, what program they will be using, the amount of models, and if the models will be shaded/ rigged. But the model will have to be original creation based on EXTENSIVE research.

At at the end of the challenge the final model will have to look like a scene that we might see in a cg movie or a commercial.


EVALUATION CRITERIA:______________________



Detailed RESEARCH, and attention to detail are key for ALL entries. Please before doing an entry do your homework.

The best model will be selected by an open vote
for these categories:


  • BEST ORIGINAL INTERPRETATION OF ESTABLISHED CHARACTER
  • BEST VEHICLE/ BUILDING/ MACHINE
  • BEST DIORAMA
  • BEST ACTION FIGURE
  • BEST WIP
and the big one of course:
  • Best Model
The winner will get bragging rights and a small banner
designed by me.

DATELINE! WED, September 15th 12:00 PM

gotcha. A FOX animation challenge would be cool.

also I'm assuming this is purely animation based and that things like Power Rangers would also be off limits?

I think it can be cool to have include in the resume of each threat the era of the selected cartoon (or show) and a link to the opening intro of the show as ref.
