ROUND #192 :: Atlantean Anarchist - HOST: AfekayDESCRIPTION
Shila'h Andralzzi, Atlantean Anarchist
Man or woman, Shila'h is a feared anarchist, rioter, agitator, and insurrectionist, causing unrest and violence in the once utopian city of Atlantis. At the head of a dissident faction called "The coral reef", s/he is an obscure figure, renowned for being an excellent orator and a crowd manipulator. Without going into a Manichean description, s/he is neither nice nor bad, just an idealist living in an environment of idealists, from whom s/he doesn't share the same conception of "perfection".
Special Thanks to Afekay, Winner of round 190, and Guest Host this Week!
Extra Note from Afekay!
"The purpose of the topic is to focus on the psychology of a character. Shila'h is living in "perfect city", but not the way s/he wants. We all have a different conception of an ideal, there is no good/bad things about this. S/He's a leader, but you may know only very few things about her/him and her/his life, that's what I called an "obscure figure". You can portray her/him alone, or arguing with her/his troops, or taking part of a fight, etc. Is s/he a noble? A folk? Part of the politics? Atlantis is legendary city, you can imagine it the way you want: ancient, contemporary, futuristic, it's up to you.
I voluntarily choosed to let some parts of the subject open, I judged that it was yet enough restrictive."

My first submission ever

Lots of beautiful work, and a lot of fun. Good luck everyone!
The city of Atlantis was to be restored to its former glory. A utopian city, served as an example for the world to see how a perfect society is to be.
Needless to say, not all agree.
From his tiny cottage in the suburbs of Atlantis, Shila'h craves chaos and despair..
All done. Pretty meh about it. Ran out of time as usual. Too busy having high tea haha. But was fun nonetheless and I liked the process. I still really need to work on planning my final pieces a lot better.

The obscure anarchist=)
damn it feels good to actually have finished something again! can't wait for the next topic
My entry for the current ChOW round: 'Atlantean Anarchist'.
I remember seeing a reference somewhere that Atlantis was swallowed by the ocean because they messed with nuclear power, so I figure my anarchist would be the one promoting the construction of a nuclear power plant that would eventually -but unintentionally- bring down Atlantis.

Opinions and critiques always welcomed!
Nice job all!
all right, I'm not quite sure if this is acceptable, but...
I had imagined that she would have existed prior to the sinking of Atlantis, and it is possible that the events her actions lead to may have been the cause of the great city's downfall... I decided to create a sort of a greco-modernism sort of style with her clothing, as it is likely that the Atlantiens were far more advanced that the compeeting nations of the Medeteranian...
She wears a mask of sorts to cover the majority of scaring she received in an accident concerning explosive substances, and the disk on her left side actually covers the remains of her amputated left arm.
I am still quite terrible with digital mediums, as well as general human anatomy, so hopefully I shall improve in the near future...
hi , this is for my first participation , hope you like it ... good luck to everyone !
First time Chow-er, sup? Was pretty fun to do, I'll try to do more in the future.
I went with the punk-ish kind of thing, rrrriot grrrrrrrl, grrr! I initially intended for her to wear fur and dead animals (collected trophies), and then went back to read the brief and noticed the "coral reef" thing ... so yeah, dead fish instead ... sexy.
I imagine her as someone being passionate about her cause, while at the same time liking troublemaking for troublemakings sake.
Here's my very first CHOW submission... done in a bit of a rush (alas), but this was a ton of fun! Who doesn't love the tried-and-true "using forbidden magic to achieve change" trope, hmm? Well good luck, everyone has such amazing entries!
