CDC #376 – Forged In Fire

Your Challenge this week is to design a one of a kind weapon of battle ie: sword, mace, shield, battle axe, etc. You can choose to include the warrior who wields it in battle if you wish, but entries will be judged solely on the creativity  and uniqueness  of the weapon.

The winner this week will receive my design for the master blacksmith who forged the weapon.

Weapons can be from any period you wish, or pure fantasy,

The original ...

My version...

Congrats again!

Cosplay Update!

Since I guess this isn't really 'The Road to Comic-Con' anymore, I guess this will do as a title. But, just because the con is off, doesn't mean we aren't going to finish what we started! So let's have a look at our progress (including the first fully finished piece!). Image heavy post ahead.

So first of all, I have to thank all the creators that came out to play over the past 14 weeks or so. You continually surprise me with your creativity and talent. So now we are down to the last challenge: to design a logo and come up with a name for both the team of heroes and the team of villains. If you decide to enter  you must enter all four segments (2 logos and 2 names). Also, one person might not win it all. There could be as many as 4 winners

The prize for winning…or being one of the winners….will be a hero or villain based on you and designed by me to add to the existing roster of 7 members per team.
