    January 2013 - MYFX monthly challenge - The Dark Crystal 2 - WIPS

    We recently had a weekly challenge on this topic and it was decided to make it a monthly, so here it is! Thanks to Thulsadoom for the great challenge idea

    The Dark Crystal 2 - Character Design  

    Brief : "Jim Henson's creature shop is finally making 'Dark Crystal 2'. Your job is to design the characters Skeksis villain and hero Gelfing. 

    Deadline:

 Midnight (GMT) on Thursday 31st January. 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 FINAL thread. 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.

    You will if you decide to watch the movie.  

    It's one of the more memorable elements in the movie- aside from the outstanding creature designs.

    Hey Gabriella, didn't mean to confuse you - as Mr. Goat says, you'll understand as soon as you start watching. I rewatched the film last year and I think I drove my wife 'round the bend by walking around doing that for days afterwards... :D
