Character Design Challenge #184- Shocking! – Results

Well this was a tough one. Very hard to whittle these entries down this week, and I have changed my mind half a dozen times already, and will undoubtedly again after posting this! So here goes nothing...

Honorable mention go to Cliff's Thor and Worf''s Lightning Girl.

And this week's win goes to Xinmodic's Living Bolt. Great use of colour although I would be interested to see it with less...if any...black. But it is certainly effective.

Pop Quiz – Savage Beauty

727f660d2dec74b53652999e69b49573

Savage Beauty was an art exhibition held in 2011 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art featuring clothing created by British fashion designer Alexander McQueen, as well as accessories created for his runway shows. The exhibit was extremely popular in New York City and resulted in record attendance for the museum.

A master of the Avant Garde, McQueen played with extreme silhouettes and materials; the dress posted above was made of razor clam shells.

Your challenge this week is to design a character that personifies the idea of Savage Beauty.

This is a link to my McQueen Pinterest page to help inspire you.
