So due to there being some demand for harder or more specific challenges I am going to start splitting the challenges into tiers, I want to keep this thread as inclusive as possible so anyone can participate but if people want harder stuff to do well they can try to do the harder versions of the challenge.
week 3 ROBO Challenge
Basic Challenge: Design and illustrate a character that is completely robotic in nature. I suggest using simple shapes and building upon them, don't forget the fundamentals of perspective!
Advanced Challenge: Design and illustrate a new Robot Master for Capcom's new Megaman game. Needs to look on model, meaning the style has to match or come close to legitimate Megaman art. Can be the more simple designs from the original Megaman or the more complicated designs of Megaman X +. Some things to consider are that many of them are based off of animals or simple machines and follow the same sort of body plan.
Heroic Challenge: If you're not a fan of Megaman or that style and want something more challenging and serious... Design and illustrate a western or eastern styled giant mecha. Examples include Mechwarrior and Battletech for western styled machines, and Gundam and Armored Core for eastern styled machines. I highly suggest using many references if you're going to attempt this.
Omnipotent God Emperor Challenge: Do both the Advanced and Heroic Challenges, or actually build and program a giant mecha and go on an unstoppable rampage of destruction in Japan. Take pics as proof.
