Well I thought this challenge was a bust until a last minute flood of entries. Thanks to everyone who came out to honour Cliff. I am sure he would be tickled.
Honourable mentions this week go to Melmo44 and rossoftheyear. Melmo gave us a satyr enjoying his leisure time, and Ross created a satyr guaranteed to put a smile on your face,
This week's runner up is AMS for this stunning work; the background is a mastrerpiece.
And the win this week goes to...
HermanSmellville! This is an incredible piece of work. It allows you to read into the character. This guy us a little scary, and completely brilliant. Well done you!
Thanks to all who entered.
Congrats, HermanSmellville! A classic satyr. The tufts along the elbows and hips highlight his animal nature. Great palette. Though I admit the lyre throws me off a little. He is holding the instrument as if he just stole it and is daring anyone to try to come get it!
@AMS: Excellent tribute completely in your style. Cliff would have loved this one.
@rossoftheyear: Love the use of items. A fun character who could serve as a mascot on a t-shirt or in his own 4-color cartoon.
@Melmo44: Your satyr has Cliff written all over. The laid back pose. The food and drink. Most of all – his expression of inner peace.
Best to all in this new year.
Congrats, man. Good stuff, guys.
