Mhugo: That's awesome! I'm getting the feeling that he's a sad, lonely, mutated, man that's just trying to survive rather than some sort of warrior, which may not be your intention, but it's refreshing. You are most definitely getting my vote.
Hellfire: I love your style of painting and i can fully imagine this design in a game or comic. I also like how you designed the gas mask. My only critique is that it feels like a fantasy design that was turned into a post apocalyptic design rather than just a post-apocalyptic design. I think it's because that kind of armor on the shoulder and upper chest with an exposed mid section isn't going to help him in a condition where people shoot guns rather than wield swords. Regardless it's a great painting and you are also definitely getting my vote.
I wasn't planning on entering this week because there's no possible way i'm winning (especially over Mhugo or Hellfire 0_0) but i created this design for practice so i have more experience for when i want to enter a CHOW competition later and now i'm thinking i might as well submit it
There isn't a disadvantage to posting, i guess
Any suggestions would be most appreciated, especially before the deadline, haha.
BTW i uploaded a character sheet too. It was scribbled out after the original picture ( i made it just to fulfill the requirements). I also wrote down a few of my original thoughts when designing the character. Sorry for the terrible handwriting (i know it's pretty much unreadable) it just shows you how bad i am with tablets... still.
I have a whole back story for this character too, but I'm sure no one cares so i won't write it out, haha.
Here is what I've done so far, probably just going to spend a little longer on this then call it done. All the entries are looking ace so far, can't wait to see all the finals.
Fix to the Gun to show the open trigger guard - and some other fixes like value balance etc, might need to skip a few things due to the closing deadline and a need to do something else ~ hopefully I'll be able to return before 9 to post this in the final thread.
Anyway wanted to post this in case I miss the deadline ~
EDIT: And Blue Flowers ~

Dat weapon is so cool, I want to build it IRL
Now crit the shit out of me!
Hop ! There's my final !
Ther's so many cool works
Wow, this thread exploded with cool concepts and I think I blame closed for it mostly.
Kalumis Good drawing, but being all skeleton she's more on the supernatural side, I think. Adding just a few muscles might ensure you're not excluded from poll due to a technicality.
dan liimatta Awesome as always, so much detail, love the Hello Kitty sneakers.
RWhyte Heh, looks like granny marauder, your style reminds me of van Gogh for some reason.
As for mine I started over doing thumbnails and speed paintings. This Brotherhood of Steel reject I worked a bit further on but it won't be finished in time. Still was a fun exercise as usual.
I almost never do thumbnails but from the expert advice on this site I tried that also this week:
Criticism is always welcomed!

FunnyFace, I'm not going to lie, at first glance I thought yours was a storm trooper playing a gameboy or something similar ha. Really like the strokes going on throughout man, gives it a really traditional painted look. Love it

Very nice - too bad you didn't make it in time (and man if I tried to do as many I wouldn't make it either - barely managed mine).
Anyway I did some more on the piece after 21 yesterday as I didn't feel that I was done at the deadline - and I still partly feel that way - but anyway ~
So here is an updated version from my SB
