Design the Dreamweaver
DEADLINE: SUNDAY, July 3rd 2011
Deadline is Sunday, at 9:00 pm (GMT+1) Check your timezone!
The Dreamweaver is a mystical, nymph like being who watches over Nod; the world our spirits cross over into when we sleep. The Dreamweaver is said to be beautiful to behold, youthful but ageless, both wise and naive, powerful but fragile. But Nod is not free of darkness and corruption. The Old Hag is a frightful and hideous being that wants to have full control over Nod and command people's dreams rather than just watching over them. The Hag is responsible for sending the Dreamweaver's lover into the waking world and trapping them there for the rest of time. Stuck in a world they didn't belong to, the lover did their best to help the Dreamweaver by helping those plagued with sleeping problems to drift peacefully back into Nod and became know as the Sandman. This week's task is to design the Dreamweaver character. As a bonus, you can include designs for the Old Hag and/or the Sandman but bare in mind that this is only one week and that the Dreamweaver is the focus of the design! The illustration of the piece is just as important as the development of the character so plan your image carefully! As always, images which are not well developed will not make it to the poll!
Things to remember:
- Think about the inllustration of the piece But do not forget the character design!
- The Dreamweaver and Sandman can be either gender but the Old Hag is female.
- They must be humanoid but they do not have to look entirely human. Remember, they are nymph-like creatures.
- The Dreamweaver and Sandman promote GOOD dreams not nightmares.
- The style, genre and setting are completely up to you.
- The Dreamweaver must be the FOCUS of the image/design.
- New rule: no hot naked women. Try and be original in your design.
Good luck, and be creative!

This is my first finished CHOW, I easily spent 16-20 hours on this one. My hand kills! In my depiction, the dreamweaver is lulling a mountain turtle back to sleep.

My first successful CHOW as well... could've spent a few more days on the color especially though.
Here she is!
Desperately trying to upload before heading back to work.
Good luck everyone.
See the TURTLE of enormous girth!
On his shell he holds the earth.
His thought is slow but always kind;
He holds us all within his mind.
I just started this yesterday. I really didn't think I'd make the deadline but I really wanted to do this cause of all the other cool stuff I've been seeing on here.
wip & close up
Good luck all! )
