Metropolis Disaster - Art Collab Sep. 24th, 2008 @ 09:12 PM Reply

Approved by ReNaeNae

So by my watch, we haven't had an art collab in a while.. let alone one that was actually completed! Here's where you come in.

I'll lay it out nice and simple for you; you need to draw a monster destroying a city. Very simple!

In more detailed terms, you need to draw the monster, AND the building it's destroying. Make sure your monster is interesting! I'm open to whatever really, it could be Cthulhu or a UFO or even a large version of yourself! I do stress that you make the picture look good at the very least.

If you want to do something with a little animation in flash, show me the .gif here (with a link to the .swf) and I'll either help you make it better or ask for the .fla from you. Likewise, if you use something that compresses the quality, link to a .png version as well.

All programs are welcome!
Terrible art is not!
Co-authors will be decided by me, so don't raise your hand, I'll choose you!

Specs:
- 599 x 600 pixels
- Polished artwork
- No background, keep it white.

Now as nice and loose as I'd like to keep this, we need some order around here. So I'll give you until the 30th of November to whip up something slick. This gives you ample time to put stuff together, but please don't put it off if you want to join.

(And don't worry, I've got it all planned out already, the intro, the menu etc. You don't have to worry about me bumming out)

So without further adieu, here's my pic below for example.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Q. Where should I put my name?
Oh, don't worry about that. I'll organise all the naming. Just draw the monster and building, I'll handle everything else!

How many entries can I put in?
As many as you like! But y'know don't make like 100. That's silly

How is this going to work as a movie McJesus?
Is the whole thing going to scroll sideways to see all the monsters destroying individual buildings. Cause If you are going to do it that way, an animated versions would be a lot better.

Slide show?

Other?

It's sort of a mix. It's going to play out like a newscast. "Tragedy strikes the nation as the local metropolis has been attacked by a variety of vile creatures! We have some stunning photos brought to you directly from the scene:"

Add in some humerous dialogue, some animation and a pan or two and bam. There ya have it.

If you could just clean up your lines and make sure you colour all of your picture (you missed a few bits) I'll be happy to accept it!

Did a quick concept little thing.
I'm not fairly happy with it.
I'll probably re-do it later on.

Yay a decent collab

Took a while to find this, but I've got an old CoW sketch I've always fancied finishing off.
Does the pics have to be self-contained, ie. no cropped buildings?

I'd prefer it if the only border crossed was at the bottom but considering some of these will be still photos, I'm happy to have either way.
