    December 2012 - MYFX Monthly Challenge - Art Gladiators - WIPs

    Hey people,

    This months challenge is called: 'Art Gladiators'

    The challenge title is up to your own interpretation, you could draw yourself as a gladiator decked out in artistic looking armor or maybe go more literal with it and draw a gladiator using a pencil sword and a sketchbook shield. It's up to you, have fun with it :)

    Deadline:

 Midnight (GMT) on Monday 31st December. 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 begin and continue until midnight (GMT) on 7th of the following month. Crits are welcomed during the voting process. Toward the end of the current challenge a new challenge setter will be randomly chosen from those taking part in the WIP thread to set the next monthly challenge, so keep an eye out.

    Post your final entries in the FINALs thread (comments without entries - or without votes during the voting process - will be deleted). All other comments and all WIPs (required for entry) should be posted in this thread


    Brief rules and additional info:


    Two separate wips must be posted in the wip thread and clickable links must be posted in the final thread with the final image. A link is provided below to details of how to do this. You will be disqualified if you do not post WIP links correctly. If you have a problem posting wips or creating links please pm me. 

    All artwork must be the work of the entrant, and completed within the time frame of the challenge. You may only enter 1 entry per challenge, and may only cast 1 set of votes during voting.

    

Please keep entries and WIPs below 500k and a maximum of 1000 pixels across. Larger files causes problems for all users, especially those on slower connections.

    

Moderators monitor the voting in these challenges to combat cheating and maintain fairness. We may discount any vote we consider suspicious, and will disregard any attempts at sabotaging the voting, or in any way screwing with these challenges.

    Been a while since I did one of these.

    Going for a gladiator decorating his armour with 'parts' of his fallen foes.

    Just some rough values so far.

    Heh, ever have a really killer idea/concept for something like this and then not be sure enough of your own skill to pull it off? I have a really good idea, but I feel like in this instance I am like an american trying to explain quantum theory to someone who only speaks Russian and the only language I have for reference is Japanese...

    Go for it!  It's the only way you'll know for sure, plus you'll likely learn loads in the process :)

    Oh I am planning too, just trying to psyche myself up for it. I will start when I finish up my weekly challenge.

    What the heck, I'll throw my hat in the ring for this one. I'll try not to misjudge the contest deadline by an hour this time. The "Art Gladiator" gimmick will become apparent eventually.

    Better pose with this one, I think.

    Okay, here is my concept, it's very rough, but I wanted to get a WIP up. This is really going to push what little skill I have, but I think I will in fact learn a ton from this challenge.

    Palespyder, if you're going where I think you are with that, it's going to be extremely cool.

    Here's the more or less complete concept for mine:

    Looks like we took this in similar ways. ;)

    Re: December 2012 - MYFX Monthly Challenge - Art Gladiators - WIPs

    That's looking cool already, Vektor - that pose is much better.

    Looking forward to see where you take yours, Palespyder.

    On to Wip 2. Fleshed out a bit. Playing with adding a helmet of some kind at the mo Confused
