Week 4

'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!
Use references!

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,

Wow, the one week came by so fast.
I'm currently doing another flash, but I guess that's have to wait...
Now probably something I'm better at. Still bad but I guess what I'm more used to.

I am here to once again miss the point of the challenge! Yay. Anyway I still can't stop drawing muse...And adding L doesn't help much. And really all they're doing is staring each other down in their own silly way. I tried colouring it...but everytime I just...nope. Wasn't going to happen so I just scribbled over it and said there done.

Ugh...this took me a long time to get done.
Especially with Chinese New Year and a few family get together's, I really have been busy.

Anyway, I tried the hardest challenge with a comic and an animation.
They are all half finished and really have no time to get it done.
Hope this is sufficient enough.

Great effort by all (whats with the guy who posted some 3-d dude?)

123mine123 is g-g-g-godlike this challenge.

Sorry about the delay I've been going through some pretty dramatic changes in my professional life and its gotten me quite busier than I would like to be.

http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/61fd206557d0ad882c5b2e7cf1a2a3e1 this is what i slapped together for it. Sorry I let you down aigis, but it seems you were even busier~

and so this challenge ends.

Deadline/Time Challenge

....Wait until Friday.

Enjoy your time off while you can.

...You'll see. Anybody interested in completing this challenge should probably leave their weekend/friday night open for some drawing time~

week 5

Deadline/Time Challenge- Sexy Time

Basic Challenge: You've screwed up! You've procrastinated all week and you still have to finish the work for your client on time (before the next challenge is posted on Monday) or you don't get paid and you wont have enough money to cover your rent! You dont want to be a bum do you? Draw a tasteful pinup of a man or woman in your style. Must be colored/shaded! Remember, a pinup is not explicitly pornography.

Advanced Challenge: Sadly you've ended up as a washed up pornographer because you couldn't get any of the better paying jobs throughout your career, mostly because you never practiced much or challenged yourself to do things outside of your comfort zone and your lack of skill makes it so you cant get other jobs. Draw two or more figures hugging in that special adult way, colored/shaded. Pay attention to gestures and use a reference for the sake of anatomy. Try to stay as classy as you can, just because you're a pornographer doesnt mean you have to be crude/unimaginative with it. Strive to challenge yourself ya creep!

Heroic Challenge: こんぼんわ!!You're actually a world renowned hentai/ecchi mangaka from japan. What a nerd. Create a page of a your hentai/ecchi comic with special attention to stylization and eroticism. Doesnt have to be hardcore porn or explicit. Dont just make something generic, try to make it as though you were the real deal! These guys actually put out pages super fast! You can make it as weird as you want. You are Japanese after all.

Baka Gaijinn Naruto Shadman No Girlfriend Challenge: Do both the Advanced and Heroic Challenges, or create an entire harem or hentai gore anime by yourself. Send it to me as proof. It better have a higher quality than tenchi muyo or you'll never be my kawaii sensei.

seems a little too far away/focused on the background to be a pin-up tbh
