Character of the Week #311
Deadline - Sunday, December 30 10PM GMT
The world has been destroyed but not the hope that resides within every survivor. Christmas is still celebrated to keep everyone's spirits up and to look forward to the future. Santa is one of these survivors and still brings happiness to all the young kids living in these hard times. With his original workshop destroyed he had to rebuild another one with what he could, that includes his magical sleigh!
We want you to come up with a Santa that fits this time period. Think about what he might have to use for a sleigh until the world gets back together. He may be slightly better off than the normal people, but he has also fallen onto hard times. Be sure to depict this in your design as you plan, sketch, and paint.
This will be a fairly open topic, the only thing we want to see is that this is, indeed, Santa Clause.
- Must be human male.
- You have 2 weeks to work on this.
- Post-Apocalyptic time period.
- Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline
- Final post must include the CHoW number and the artists username at the bottom of the image
- At least 3/4 of the character must be visible
- At least two wips posted in the finals thread
- Background is optional
- Have fun!
Alrighty I'll toss my first ever contest entry in, was very fun!
Geared up with his "Naughty or Nice HUD", my Santa uses junk from the apocalypse to craft both presents and his own gift-giving gadgets!
can't wait to see the rest!
Happy holidays and good luck yall!

Here's mine.... nice to be done more than 5 minutes before the deadline.
I wanted to do something with more of a figurative Santa character who brings food, survival items, and found toys. Kind of imagined him as a part of "The Road".

Well i am finished.

I feel that i improved a little thanks to this challenge.
Happy holidays everybody!
my final and WIPS, lots of great stuff in here
I hope to see the rest of the finals come rolling in here soon, there are 4 hours left, plenty of time!
This was a great exercise and experiment. I had a lot of fun seeing everyone's great Santa's.
"Warm and welcoming, but psychotic and deadly" is the phrase that ran trough my mind during this.
Sorry if this is spam, I ended up deleting my last post on accident. Hope you like it!
10 Minutes left! There were a lot more WIPS than there are in the finals so far! I hope everyone can make it!
Good round everyone. I wish we could have had more finals submitted on time!
Just a heads up, DO NOT USE the quick reply, it is double posting!
I guess I missed the time:/ ill post mine anyways when I get by a computer
