DANGER SQUAD!!
#1
Starring smrrfette and mannyhaatz! It's us just trying to do the damn thing.

There will be blood. (there won't be blood)

This thread will be a conglomerate of many things in the beginning. Hopefully, we will become more streamlined in terms of routine as we progress. As we LVL UP and PROGRESS, I said. Feel free to stop by and lend some advice!

This thread is about pushing ourselves to the limit with any kind of challenge we assign ourselves at random times. We start "small" - finishing pieces to absolute completion from generators and such, until we eventually move up to competing in CHoW, but most importantly - Bloodsports. After certain increments, we may switch from generated design briefs, etc to a CHoW/EoW (or something similar, w/e) to note any weaknesses or improvements and strive to get better.

We'll be posting wips, sketches, studies and anything pertaining to the assigned challenges in this thread (including the finished piece :3). Individual studies not to do with said challenges will remain in our sketchbook thread alone. Although if we both decide that instead of a challenge we would like to study a specific thing together e.g. hands, then that'll go in this thread as well. Finished pieces will also be posted in the finished pieces/critiques thread in hopes of receiving any crits.

Anyways, that's the gist of the DANGER SQUAD Th_113_

Any comments are welcome :3

1st objective:

Use the character generator and create a 100% finished piece of the generated char. Sweat and blood must be put into this piece. Due Monday.
- Task assigned by Mannyhaatz

ref gallery setup for future studies and such and wip:

Keeping fingers crossed for u, people. Good luck!

For motivation:


:)

It's a somewhat solitary existence, a bit like a lighthouse keeper throwing a beam out into the darkness, in faith that this action might help someone unseen.

These characters sure help with design sense and costumes and stuffffffffff and sheeeeeit!

Sorry for the lack of studies, I study the style guide before I begin each day so I can essentially apply what I observed onto my character. It helps me, especially since I don't necessarily have time to do a focused set of studies along with working on this biiish. (oh, and sorry for not posting the style sheet too. I'll upload it with my final image.)

A load of WIPS, thus far.

Objective 2:

Create a male or female portrait/bust. Can be any genre. But the focus is taking the head and hands (especially) to a finished render.

With an emphasis on both the head and hands - you must compose the character's hands well within the painting.

Example: http://dahlig.deviantart.com/art/The-Oracle-50266146

Due: 12 Dec 2013
(so I hope to see some juicy studies and wips in the upcoming days ;) )

Time 2nd objective set: Thurs, 28 Nov 2013, 7:48PM

Now THIS is a challenge, in every sense of the word! The studies will be aplenty; juicy, tangy, citrus flavored studies.

Feels good to study with a purpose, with a goal in mind.

I'M SO DAMN EXCITED. Good luck!
