TEAM CHOW :: FINAL BURNINGSUBMISSION GUIDELINES
1. Each Team should Choose ONE member to submit for the whole team. No multiple entries, please!
2. ATTACH your work to your post. Please submit each character, and a composite of the characters. How you lay this out is up to you - but keep in mind that presentation often pushes work forward!
3. Also ATTACH a thumbnail to represent your team. 200 px by 300 px (height by width), with the team name, and each of your team members. You will probably want to include an image in it, but it isn't necessary.
4. Provide a link to your wips. Either link me to the progress threads that you created, or make a new thread in Sketchbooks to showcase the wips if you didn't already. If you do not include these you will be disqualified, so please do it! Remember to put your finals in your wips thread as well.
5. Name your images properly. In this case, TeamName_TChow_composite.jpg and TeamName_TChow_hero.jpg, etc, would be appropriate. Do NOT name them hero.jpg, etc, or I WILL cut you, and probably by accident when my computer writes over your entry!
ALL OTHER CHOW RULES APPLY. Including using the attachment editor, being in before deadline on time, not voting for yourself, the 3/4ths rule,etc. I will cut your whole team brutally and mercilessly if you don't read the instructions and follow them, so please be careful. If you aren't clear that your entry follows the rules, PM me and I will check. If you do not pm me first, I will NOT pm you if I see that you've made a mistake, so if you notice your teammate made a mistake, please point it out of them.
Do NOT comment in this thread until the poll is up, as I will delete them and grumble darkly.
Also, Poll will take anywhere between 1-24 hours for me to set up after I close this thread, so please be patient.
Deadline is 11:59 pm on Saturday Evening, May 2nd, ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. Which means if it is a minute to midnight in the world somewhere, you are still good.

Well we made it.
But it wasn't easy. Our epic journey broke Grandma's arm, It completely Killed off KonnA (no really, we have no idea what happened to him, would the kidnappers please let him go!) and I'm pretty sure I've got pig flu.
But we've had great fun, and it's been a pleasure working with you guys!
I hope I've named everthing right... And thanks daestwen for this whole thing!
All the best everone!

Daestwen, thanks a lot for a great CHOW. I speak for my team when I say we really had a great time participating. The random team idea was great. I got to know two kind artists and I enjoyed working with them.

Wow, Guys! I wake up to ten more entries!
30 Minute Grace Period.
After that I'll close the thread and start setting up the poll. It will probably take me a little while, so please be patient.
If there are any teams that are almost ready to submit, You should know that I'm in a really good mood right now, so PMing me might be a good idea!
Thanks so much everyone, this has made me really happy. :]
This is the entry from Team Subway Gropers (Aug, Ostrander, Sundance, Ilaekae)

Wow! Some really nice stuff here. Really wish I was able to get in on this.
-TeamDarkYellowGhostRobots: Really nice entries. Im especially fond of The Shadow and Heroine. I like the little bio spots too, lets you get a better feel for the char.
-Team Bagette: I really like the theme, reminds me of GIJoe a bit Really like Protector and Sage, two thumbs way up!
-Team What Would Tyler Durden Do?: Caught my eye immediately. I'm a sucker for fantasy and these remind me of a full fledged D&D Party. Really cool stuff!
-Team Zaxxon- Really awesome designs for all of them! They all mesh together well and the roles are visible. Im really happy to see you guys finish. Super crunch ftw. Top vote to you guys!
-Team GrogroZoo- Very weird, but cool, stuff. Its like Animal Crossing on LSD. Your theme and style really makes you guys stand out of the crowd. Nice work!
Nice work all around from all the teams!

Ok i'll try to give quick comment and critics to every team
Weird Sisters :
you had my vote. Interesting theme, it's easy to identify each character, the rendering is good.
Some interesting ideas. Some design are a bit too much simple. It's difficult to get what is the exact universe.
Random 1 :
It's easy to get he kind of universe. Im not a big fan of the hero (is there a reason for her to get bionic eye and legs?). The sage is funny although I cant get what he is exactly. The scar on the protector eye is a bit cheesy
Crumpets N pain :
A good theme again. The sage seems a bit out of place. Each character as a good personality. kudos!
Got my vote!! Really original, excellent character design, love the way it is presented, and loving the style.
Some characters doesnt seems to fit totally their description (rabble rouser and shadow). Im not sure to get the theme..is it medieval? but there is some element of steampunk (the goggles). The pose of the hero is awkward although her rendering is good.
Art Soda :
Another western hehe. Some nice ideas but I feel they are not totally part of the same universe. some are only classic western and some are clearly steampunk. The techy and the hero are too much similar IMHO
Wow! pretty good stuff here. Didnt vote for you because I wanted to restrict myself, but you definitively catch my eye. Nice design. i feel the rabble rouser doesn't fit the description. The sage's robe look a bit clean for beeing on some post-apocalyptic universe.
Some nice renderings especially the hero! But to be honest it shows that you rushed them : they look more like random NPC from a random sc-fi game rather than original characters with a story. Some doesnt fit their description (the sage especially). Would have been cool to see what you could have produced if you had started earlier!
Sugah Face :
I dont get the universe. They look like they come from different stories. There is some good idea that need more development here . Maybe a stronger art direction would have been helpful.
Orange Soup :
Original theme. Interesting silouhette and designs for each characters. Sage seems a bit out of place. good job!
Double Impact :
The rendering is good but some characters definitively need more design research. Im not against simple designs, but Im sure some additional details and props could have helped your characters to be more easily identified
Nasty Sausages :
A nice one! loving the face of the protector. good ideas here. I dont get why the rabble rouser has a bionic arm? also the techy doesnt seem to have enough tools to repair vehicles. Im sure some designs could have been pushed a little bit further, to from ''nice one'' to ''wow kick ass!''
What Would Tyler Durden DO :
Good rendering. A lot look more like classic fantasy fighter rather than original hero. I mean, yes, I can identify them, but I dont feel they are more than some warrior on a fantasy universe (shadow, protector and rabble rouser and hero). Maybe trying to get away from the typical high fantasy adventurer would have helped.
Gurren Brigade :
Oooh nice one. If daestwen is reading this, can you add a vote for them... I just forgot to vote for them . I love the hero!! very original. Im not sure I totally get the protector design (weird shoulder). The universe is a bit hard to get (strange post-apocalyptic space opera?). But overall great quality, and very interesting designs.
Subway gropers :
Hum it's difficult to get the universe. I feel like the gun of the hero is more developped than the design itself . Some funny ideas. Would need a stronger direction to really unite them as a whole team rather than disparate characters.
Some good ideas. I like the hero altought the design is maybe a bit too much simple. I feel the shadow and the protector should change with each other. Some designs are a bit too simple and lack some key elements of the description to really get who they are. (the techy ..she has a tool in her hand..but no pocket or bags for the other tools..etc)
My vote is for Team Baguette, cause I found great the foreground, it's "original" and the drawings fit, so...
Soda and Zaxxon were my other options. The african culture it's been a great option, but I think they don't match as they should. Zaxxon are gret, a lot indeed, but more typical, that's the reason I've tried Baguette.
IMO we all have worked harder, but it's not only one owrking, the team working it is a little bit different. I enjoyed that a lot, I'll work even harder on next round
I voted for "Once Upon a Sundown" because I felt that the entire team maintained a certain level of consistency. Each character blends wonderfully with the background and the overall appearance of the shading and highlights is consistent with each character. And it helps the I like the western theme hahaha.
Still, each team did an excellent job. The characters are diverse, well thought out and have strong presentation.
"Creativity emerges only when the imagination is given the freedom it deserves."
I voted for nearly all of them, so well done! If there is one thing this challenege has proven, is that collaboration makes for better art!!
