CHALLENGE: Stock Characters - Part 2

Hello, welcome to the second stock character challenge ( http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixels/challenge_item.asp?id=1104 - here's the first ).

For this challenge, you need to create a stylised portrait of a stock character - the more stylised the better. It should be obvious which stock character you've picked.

Pick one of the stock characters from the list below:

  • Ninja
  • Wizard
  • Evil robot
  • Vampire

You must create your own original interpretation of the stock character. So; for example, if you were to pick the wizard, you couldn't just pixel Harry Potter.

Wip Wizard. Not too sure about it. Like the hat though.

Bloody hell, you don't hang about do you. Very nice. My only criticism is that maybe too much of that amazing hat and not enough face. Nonetheless, amazing WIP.

Very nice Reo, but it looks like your wizard is caught in the canvas, maybe cut the hat rather then the beard and add an item that goes outside the canvas.

I chose to draw the wizard and loosely base it off Peter Jackson's interpretation of Gandalf. Obviously, this is still a work-in-progress.


Posted By: Daanvdk
Date Posted: 23 July 2012 at 8:44pm

My wip, I figured I'd do a young female wizard, to oppose all the old grumpy wizards upcoming.

EDIT:

I'm pretty much stuck on the body, I hate the shading there but I have no idea how to do it better.

Date Posted: 23 July 2012 at 9:45pm
Here's a very early WIP! Right now I'm mainly just trying to work out all the shapes

He's going to be an old evil robot that's Now living in the 21st century!

Any critic is greatly appreciated!

The rules say "pick one of the options below", I don't think we should take them that strictly however.

About my wip:

I'm quite happy with the shading on the body now.

if you are that offended by my submission, then decide for yourself which it is. its not like the characters are going to be separated by type, and then voted on.

"Beauty without expression is boring."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

this is an artistic forum, where i assumed artistic expression prevailed. so enough with the public execution, submit a piece or move on. the admins will punish me accordingly if this is an issue.

I like your submission a lot..Just a couple of ideas, maybe this will help.



- I added a couple of bats to the picture. (by the way, your moon looks awesome!)

- tweaked the cats eye balls, to give him more of that creepy/magical kind of black cat look. :p

- i couldn't quite figure out what the cat was sitting on, it sort of looked like a hill. so just put him on a fence.

-- i continued the stars till the horizon, i think it fills the sky this way. it just seemed a little empty right around the middle of the image.

I like your edits, however, they make it less portraitish in my opinion.
And the challenge says that you have to make a portrait.

I'm a bit in doubt now ._.

UPDATE:

Here's an update, decided to lose the shirt, added more detail and tweaked the color a bit. Now just working on finishing it up! Also need to think of a background

EDIT:

I'm calling it done! unless anyone else has suggestions/critic!


Posted By: Nikonani
Date Posted: 24 July 2012 at 6:25pm
@Gogglecrab, I think that a bit more contrast between shades would do your piece wonders, for one thing. Can't confirm this with an edit right now (on the iDevice) but perhaps make the highlights a bit brighter and the shadows a bit darker? Also, hue shifting more away from orangey colors in the shadows would add more interestingness (if that's a word) to it.

Might finish both. Need to add some colors to the robot. I know the Vamp needs work. Wanted a 13th color for the Vamp background but will have to use one of those 12.

Started inking my ninja, but I noticed that most of the portraits are head-and-shoulders busts, did I screw up? should I try to make it bigger and just focused on the face, or you think this is fine?



Edit: a bit closer



@FlyGuy: Haha, was thinking the same thing. Anyone can just pick which one you drew. By being a vampire, you don't stop being a wizard.
A Robot would be trickier tho, maybe if he was a cyborg.

@a3um: Wow dude! that's amazing!
His mask thing looks like bandages tho, something a mummy would wear, maybe if they were just a bit darker?

@gogglecrab: Man, I can't spot the difference, real subtle!
But yeah, after staring for a while, i think it's way better.

Update
ONO, I just realized I already picked my palette but I don't have anything planned for the background.



@ionosphere: Cool! I like the overall style. I wasn't sure about the bottom part, is that supposed to be detail on his shoulders or tiny robot spider legs?


Posted By: failureboy
Date Posted: 26 July 2012 at 12:22am
@iono, I think the head is too round/organic to read as a robot. I like the direction you're going with the colors, though.

Finished:


(Text on the kanji means: Reserved Seat Ticket :p )

I think it does count as a portrait, it's kind of tricky to have a portrait of a ninja because they look silly just standing there blankly. I'm going to submit this, even tho it's clear a3um will win!

I particularly liked Christoballs entry:



Posted By: JerryPie
Date Posted: 26 July 2012 at 10:44pm
I'd like to ask the mods why mine was removed from the contest entry? If it's that big of an issue trying to figure out which of the character type I decided on..I picked the wizard. Maybe I over "stylized" it?

Don't try to mislead. If you make it clearly a wizard instead of some techno-pirate I'll be happy to put it back in.


@Dredlockz: I guess... they're both kind of iffy imo but full-body portraits are a thing I guess.

@C2B: Add a goatee, duh :p

Copied from an older post:
Its really embarrassing that this is becoming such a big issue. It seems to be out of spite. I am well within the guidelines of this competition, and in my interpretation of a wizard there just so happens to be aspects that appear similar to the other characters..Was this intentional, of course, I wont lie..But does this automatically NOT make it a wizard? Point out the issues that you feel do not make it a "stylized" wizard, and I'll be happy to explain what they are..

Fangs you ask? Of course not! Thats merely saliva, this evil wizard has just lost his mind and is drooling.

Mechanical and electronic components? - Why yes, thats right! This wizard is either from a distant future, or a steam punk alternate reality. Completely normal. :p

Sword? And when can a wizard not defend himself? I vaguely remember Gandalf taking an elvan sword from a troll encampment named Foe-Hammer. As well as Throin the Dwarf taking a sword named Ocrist.

I have altered a couple pixels if it makes you feel any better. That way we can say it went back to the drawing board. But in the end, isn't it really what I say it is?

It's supposed be a ninja that's cloaked, thus refracting the light around his face but revealing his eyes. It's hard to make the glass shading right, though. Any help here?

I dunno why, but it looks really nice, it has this unique style, can't explain. :P

founds some time again, hopefully get this one submitted in time, does this classify as stylised?


Posted By: Damian
Date Posted: 28 July 2012 at 6:05am

Here's the latest WIP. I need to really do an anatomy study again :/ Now to figure out the background.

Here's a WIP animation for interest sake. I do enjoy these.


Christoballs, that looks great so far. You're currently on 13 colours btw.


Posted By: Grimm_Dingo
Date Posted: 28 July 2012 at 7:30am
which one looks better, is the right one more stylised or just lame


*added some symmetrical derivations, seeming as a combo might be against entry rules, thoughts anyone?


Posted By: Mikebissle
Date Posted: 28 July 2012 at 9:12am
In and of itself it looks good, though I don't feel the shading on the right really adds anything as far as stylization.

The two halves are so different I could see it being interpreted as half-ninja, half-evil robot, and based on what's transpired before, combos would be against the rules.

 If you had just posted the symmetrical versions, I would have never guessed they started off combined. The one on the left looks like a ninja, while the one on the right could maybe be a dark wizard.

With some asymmetry added in, I think you could post either one of the bottom two. Nice to see you on here, by the way. ;)

Thanks for the feedback, Jim! I did reach at one point but I think it's down to 12 again now.
I like the way you did the hair for your wizard: simple yet effective. I think you can make the background say more about the character, though.


Posted By: Grimm_Dingo
Date Posted: 28 July 2012 at 8:30pm
@bissle yeah well I kinda had symmetry in mind the entire time to be honest, I find it interesting and fun to do it that way.

Was I hate speeching or spamming? By the way, this isn't a doodle. I'm actually trying to get it to work. No one will respond: not even to say, "It sucks."

leaning toward the one on the right, which will keep a a relatively consistent style across 4 of my entries

hope you guys don't mind my tendency to churn out multiple entries :x

@Grimm_Dingo: I like the one on the right. The square dithering kind of reminds me of a smoke bomb type of thing.

Gamamoto: enlarge the cranium. Also the entire face sort of slant forward toward the jaw (and slopes back toward the forehead), and the ear is placed too high. Make sure to usereferences of actual human heads.

Um... my evil robot isn't in the Weekly Challenge list and I can't put it in for some reason. Can a moderator fix that quickly please?

->Gamamoto: The biggest issue I have with your piece is in regards of the beard's shading. I think you can go for something simpler and less noisy, like the the technique Jim16 used for his wizard. The second thing that's restricting you is your palette: I'd suggest you make some colours less saturated and in between primary colours, like for example a desaturated orange. Think about your colour ramps: what colour is what? what kind of light is there in the scene? etc.
I started an edit:

Hope it helps.
