Gallery Grabs- Nug

Ok, so, after covering Iscarioto last week, now I’m going to follow up on the suggestions that everyone made two weeks ago. And we’re gonna take a look a Nug to kick off.

One thing I have noticed in looking through peoples galleries for this series is how peoples styles change over time. It’s really interesting to just spend a bit of time and go from start to most recent in someones gallery and see how much it changes, though obviously make sure you have a spare hour or two if you plan to look at any galleries with over 50 pages.

Anyway, on with the show.

Character Design Contest ♯122- Secret Identities

Alright guys, this week it’s back to the more standard “Character” contest format. For this weeks challenge I want you to create a superhero. It’s that simple.


Ok, it’s not thaaaat simple. To make it more interesting, you also have to show the character’s alter-ego, their secret identity, the Clark Kent to their Superman etc. and the two have to be incorporated into the same picture. Now there are many different ways you can do this, so I’ll leave it up to you as to how, I just care that they are both in the same picture.

As per usual, no limits on entries and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post characters that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

Character Design Contest ♯121 (Fight Club) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯120 (Film Posters) Winner

Wow, we actually had a close poll for 2 weeks in a row. Well, when I say close poll I mean it was close between the top 2. No-one else was in sight, which is weird because I don’t think that there was a noticeable quality difference to warrant an almost 50 vote gap between 2nd and 3rd places. But anyways. it ended up being one of those contests where the top 2 exchanged places throughout the week and it could have ended with either coming out on top. But as it turns out, the person to come out of top was in fact Hawk007 for his Athanasia film poster, claiming what I believe to be his first CDC victory. Congrats Hawk and well done to everyone who entered, especially our finalists, sorry that most of you got trampled in the poll.

OCD (Open Critique Day) #26

How this goes:  You post a work of yours, finished or WIP, and then others give you critiques on your work. I do not mind if you post non-HM pictures or piece of writing. Just make sure that you only post pictures that are your own design and not any that are copyrighted or based off of copyrighted characters. 

Also, if you post a work, it is highly recommended that you also give someone else a critique.

By the way, from now on OCD will end Sundays  at midnight Central Time.

Character Of The Week: Nug- Frog King

Now sometimes there’s a picture that comes along that is just frogking brilliant, I mean like toadally awesome. Something just so ribbiting that I feel I may well croak. And this is one of those times (plus, in case anyone hadn’t noticed, it gives me an opportunity to pun so hard I just couldn’t let it pass). It’s just so off the wall. I will include an earlier version as well in this post, because I feel the face is better, but the costume is certainly not something I would change. If I had to say on how to improve this though, I would say the legs could be a tad bulkier, but not by much and that’s only a very minor niggle. Anyway, nice one Nug, have a COTW. (Anyone notice the point when I ran out of frog puns?)

And best face of the year award goes to-

He looks so pleased with himself, like he just farted and nobody noticed.
