    MyFX Challenge #305 Surreal Colours - Works In Progress

    Welcome to challenge number 305 based on the cover and workshops in Imagine FX issue 87 (October 2012).
    Please offer suggestions for future challenges themes here.

    Remember to cast your vote in the previous challenge once it is available (the last weekly was delayed but the vote should be up on Sunday Nov. 18).

    #305: Surreal Colours

    Brief: This is an open brief in the sense that you can choose a landscape, a character, a fight scene or whatever you want. The picture should be strongly colourful and more or less surreal. Bring out your inner Dalí!

    Deadline: Midnight (UK) on Wednesday 21st November (this is Wednesday night, Thursday morning for those that need clarification). There is a 5 minute grace period allowing people to get their posts and links sorted. A moderator will then post a list of valid entries after checking links and voting will last 24 hours. Feedback is welcomed during the voting process.

    Post all comments, crits, sacrifices, and all WIPs (required for entry) in this WIP thread. Post your final entry in the FINALS thread. 

    We have made the rules clearer and created a guide for posting and linking wips. Please ensure that you read this, it has lots of useful information. Entries without two separate wips in the wip threads or incorrect linking/posting will be disqualified.

    • You must post at least two separate wips into the wip thread. (rules) (posting guide)
    • You must post a final image in the finals thread along with two clickable links, that link back to your wips in the wip thread (guide)
    • if you have a problem posting or any challenge problems please pm (personal message) kazky or voluspa for help (guide)

    here's another wip. I don't know if the hair is too much in this colour. Or if anyone is out there. It's a bit cold in here. All by myself.:(

    Since two weeklies are currently overlapping I think people might still be focussing on the earlier one. I HOPE more people will enter this one! (I'll try too, but not making promises, my head's been a blank lately)

    Stupid Dragons! First getting me kicked out of hogwarts and now this. Why I shake my fist at you.

    Ah well, I'll finish this off all the same and post it here and my sketch book. No real point of putting it in the finals thread. Unless some more get in on it. Lets hope:)

    I really don't think I'll have time to do this one... But here's my initial sketch anyway.. It's basically a Sparth rip off.

    Re: MyFX Challenge #305 Surreal Colours - Works In Progress

    Hey guys. This thread seems very quiet considering it's a weekly. I think it's an interesting topic too, strange.

    Jimsday: I'm liking the direction of your image at the moment. I think that the hair isn't too much but the colours are a bit difficult to look at, maybe you could try making the flowers royal blue? Keep at it mate.

    Kisu_shimo: Hey great start. I hope you find the time to finish this one up it looks good so far.

    Well I think I'm gonna jump in because this gives me an opportunity to use plenty of colour which is something I just can't do... I wanted to rethink what awaits you at the end of the rainbow.

    OK here's my linework...

    Feedback appreciated, cheers.

    I'm so glad there are a few brave souls in this challenge! I hope all of you have time to finish and post finals. I did start one myself but I haven't even finished the linedrawing yet so I haven't got a chance to finish by tonight... Shame on me.
