'Living Creation' Challenge
So now that we've got organic and non organic character creation down...
The figures and designs are nice but kind of pointless unless you apply them in a context somehow.
Lets breathe some life into our figures in various ways!
Basic Challenge: Draw at least two figures interacting somehow, fighting, talking, doing the dirty dingo. Its up to you. They don't need to be original designs. Focus on gestures and body language and how they are used to convey meaning without the exclusive or excessive use of word bubbles or generic facial expressions. Be bold and try something you aren't used to!
Advanced Challenge: You've become acquaintances with some rich investors and they may be interested in backing you as an artist/writer for a graphic novel or comic. Skip to wherever you need to in the story to draw the most exciting part of the comic, the climax, or the hook in the story/plot to get them to invest in your idea! This should be short and sweet, no more than four pages! The point of this isn't really to test your writing skills or to draw a full fledged comic, so don't be too worried about that, just try to make it as profound as you can and have characters interacting in an exciting or interesting way. Doesn't need to be in color, backgrounds may be minimal, focus on the figures and how they interact to give life and personality to them!
Alternate Challenge: The ultimate life illusion! Animate a figure performing some looping action, dancing, idly standing and doing a shimmy, running, singing, talking, making faces, anything goes, just no 'only blinking' or 'only breathing' animations please. Don't burn yourself out by trying to make something super complex because you only have a week! Use a reference if you want to make it seem more believable, and have fun with it! You might have to link to your .gif or .swf from the dumping grounds to share it in this thread.
Pan-Galactic Life Origin Deity Challenge: Do both the Advanced and Alternate Challenges, or actually create a new universe, complete with living beings and rule over it as a God for countless eons until your universe dies out and you are forgotten forever. Post pics as proof.
Did I mention that people who complete the hardest challenge get a small reward from me?
Good luck with this one guys, its rough out there,
