Next Time I'll Take the Physical Challenge
Recently I was invited, I actually begged, to be part of the Chades Challenge. Once every two weeks, a couple of artists choose one word each (one a noun, the other an adjective). The combined words form the subject of the following weeks' Chades (CHAracter DESign) Challenge.
This week was Elderly Mermaid. Though my execution was flawed I think the concepts were good. The Mermaid Head represents an elderly mermaid obsessed with appearance: A sea anemone wig, Hermit crab shell hearing aids, sea urchin eye lashes, barnacle beauty mark, and blowfish lips. I also could not resist the "Nemo" reference.
I like the 1st challenge idea so much I also included a deformed sorcerer. I hope you all enjoy these, as I will enjoy all the other entries. When I figure out how, I will include links to the other entries blogs.
