Pfftt....I gave up on this after 45 minutes. :C I was trying to do "The Lady Wrath", but she looks more like a demented Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Hahaha.



Not gonna upload either....XD I won't finish it. Not motivated. :c There was gonna be fire and 'splosions and chaos and whatnot in bg, but....never got that far.

Does it need to be an actual personification of the sin, or can we do anything that portrays it?

Like, say I drew a massive feast with a bunch of teeth marks, bites, crumbs, etc. for gluttony. Would that be okay?

That's sorta my idea.  Sounds ok to me though.

Still a long way to go.

Looks a lot better than my WIP.



I was thinking an animation where the food keep moving into the guy's mouth. This is a really early one, though. I may switch to a whole 'nother sin.

EDIT:

Small update. It's not looking amazing, so I have a question. Are we allowed to have multiple entries into a single challenge?

I rather like this pallette, better'n the XP MS Paint one :)

@Ryath: There's no limit to the number of entries. Also, your piece could benefit from a more zzomed in look. Profile views are extremely difficult.

I think his eyes should either be leveled out more or further distorted. It just kinda' looks lopsided as-is instead of intentional displacement. Still looks great, though! :D

Restricted palette challenges are the best ever. They're incredible learning tools, and force you to creative solutions and good art you'd never think to make in the first place.

That's so true about restricted palette challenges.  If you look at my wip above, you'll see the dark purple in the floor.  It might not be the best choice but it sort of works.  I would have never thought of that without the restricted palette.

The eyes are misplaced on the head, look at the nose, then look at the eyes, I'm guessing you intentionally did this since it's still a WIP, but I'm just reminding you for later, the rendering looks great so far.

Here's my take on Windows Se7en challenge; lust.
Hopefully I got the lust part down.. Anyhow it still needs a bit more love here and there before I'll put it up in the ol' gallery. 16 colors altogether:

I think there was some perspective issues.  Mainly being too wide and not enough leg and foot or something like that.  Anyway, I played with it for 20 minutes.  Maybe it might give you some ideas and motivation to finish.  This is a really cool beast.  It is a rather large piece.

This is as far as my entry id going to get this week due mainly to life making me want to lie on the floor crying and swearing until the world goes away.

It was supposed t oshow gay pride. Not because I think it is a sin (being openly gay and all) but more to show that the things once thought to be sins aren't always, and that even though gay pride is a good thing, it can be taken too far.

But I don't really remember or care about the original fervor I had to finish this. So, I thought I'd show it here in case I ever feel like picking it up again.

That looks real nice KORCHA! I reckon that the woman's nose isn't as dainty as you'd expect, thought it's likely a stylistic thing :)

@ekobor: Sorry to hear that :( Cool concept, and props to you for attempting a sin more difficult to imply, as well as employing the saturated colours to good use!

@Seiyouh: looks great!

@Jeremy: looks great too! The wrist looks too thin, and impossibly placed. This close to the face, the arm should come at an angle; or with no angle but further left from the face.

Alright! Found some time and inspiration to get a PJ challenge done! But before gallery submission (and preview creation):



For those who don't follow, it's greed! Crazy business lady causes a huge mess in a bank, and wants all the money, but there's one guy standing in the way.

Basically the plan was to create an RPG style isometric game mockup thing. My own personal challenge was to create an RPG styled character portrayal like such, and I think I did that well (from my own perceived abilities prior to this). The real problem was the isometricness, which was incredibly hard to get good looking for me with the limited palette.

I love this idea, mainly cause I'm a FMA fan. So I thought I'd give it a try.


Sin: Pride

I'm going to make the guy simple and the background complex or whatever. (Well, I'm going to try, at least. )

zomg, Shannon entering a challenge.

Is this Pride?

You are doing some amazing things with these colours, I immediately saw it as rolled up money. But I think you could try introducing a little bit more green into the note, other than that I can't think of much else to help indicate that it's money. Also, Oren Shtiv won't be happy.

BTW happy b'day o:
