Hey everyone! we took 2 weeks off to let everyone play some catch up and hopefull get down to business on whatever comissions theyre working on. We hope youre all as busy as we have been lately, and apologize for not being around as much! with that being said, its time for the new bloodsport. were leaving behind the choose your own aventure model for now, and returning with a creature challenge. we hope you like it, and look forward to the results. here goes! -
This next challenge is the LIVING STATUES challenge! Your Task is to use a monster (pre-existing or self developed) and turn it into a living statue version of itself. Similar to the concept of a gargoyle, these statues can be of any monster, and can be made of any material. Once youve decided- bring it to life! backgrounds are a MUST.
AND REMEMBER! THIS TIME WE ARE EMPHASIZING COMPOSITION, TEXTURE, AND CREATURE DESIGN!
Remember- what creature or monster you use for the statue is entirely up to you. Also keep in mind that the statue can be made of anything- stone, wood, metal, jewels, ice- ANYTHING, and that it should be textured and handled accordingly. creature MUST be in an environment that works with its design- so think carefully on the creatures look, purpose, and location!
Remember- Statues are MAN MADE. this implies a CULTURE behind the craftsman. keep this in mind when stylizing the creature to fit its statue form! these are not stone versions of real animals! they should be stylized to fit their creators!
REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL ENTRIES!
- MUST contain creature AND background!
-MUST be designed to emphasize the statue having a purpose. no random environments! use the background as a means to give insight and narrative to the statue's origins or purpose.
- MUST include studies done to be eligible to enter! Poses, materials, reference studies, lighting, composition sketches, etc.
