Assignment Theme: Goddess of Creation
Submit in Category: Larger than Life
Additional Information: The Goddess of Creation is a female deity that, for the purpose of this assignment, created life. All life. On this Earth... ... She's not Gaia, so it isn't the goddess of the earth, but all things. Fish, birds, animals, humans, ect. The drawing should show her cosmic greatness, godly beauty and elegance, and should make it clear without a title or description that she created life in some mythology.

Welcome to Weekly-Character!
This group is meant to provide ideas to digital artists to practice their skills in character art, creating many of the most wanted character designs to encounter in any digital art job.

Who can join?
Everyone can join. You should have basic skills with digital painting. That doesn't necessarily mean realistic though- we just want you to have some degree of skill in digital coloring.

How does the group work?
Every week an assignment will be given, specifying an occupation and setting of a character. We will try to keep them as varied as can be. You can start as soon as the assignment is out; there is no deadline. The first ten contributions will be posted in the respective journal entry.

Group rules
:bulletgreen: Members can only post one entry per assignment.
:bulletgreen: Assignments do not expire. Check… for the full list.
:bulletgreen: This group is here to encourage you to practice. Do your best, and leave your comfort zone.

Submission rules
:bulletblue: Add the title of the assignment into the description of your contribution.
:bulletblue: Submissions should be presentable, coloured work. It may be loose, but must be recognizable.
:bulletblue: Backgrounds are not required, but encouraged.
:bulletblue: No photomanipulations or traditional work!
:bulletblue: No random works. Your sumbissions should have been made for the assignment.

This group is for you. We don't hand out prizes or points, but you don't have to do every single assignment either. It is up to you how much you work, but remember that with practice comes skill!




Folder descriptions

:bulletblack: Cyberpunk/Dark Future - A grim near future with desolate societies on the brink of collapse. Blade Runner is a known example, as is the Neuromancer novel by William Gibson.
:bulletblack: Historical - The real past. In here go characters like those in films like Master&Commander, The Patriot, or the Rome series.
:bulletblack: Horror/Post-apocalyptic - Nightmares and monsters, and the world after it was destroyed. Horror examples are Resident Evil, or The Ring. Settings like those of The Book of Eli, Waterworld, or Mad Max are post-apocalyptic.
:bulletblack: Humour - A bright and funny world, like many animated films.
:bulletblack: Larger than Life - Superheroes, Gods, and Demigods. Includes Greek and Norse pantheons, and the comic worlds of Marvel and DC, among others.
:bulletblack: Modern - The real modern life. These are characters you can meet in your everyday life.
:bulletblack: Mythical Fantasy - Epic heroes in a world of legend. World examples are The Lord Of the Rings, but also most classic fairy-tales. Characters need not be larger than life.
:bulletblack: Pulp Fiction - Adventures like those in the old pulp magazines. Setting examples are Indiana Jones, Quatermain, the Al Capone time, and the Wild West.
:bulletblack: Science Fiction - The far future, with highly advanced technology. Tech is usually plausible, characters are down-to-earth. Examples are the Alien movie series, Battlestar Galactica and Caprica, or I, Robot.
:bulletblack: Space Opera - Style first, physics later. Adventures in outer space without too much focus on technology; as well as space fantasy. The classic example are Star Wars, or Lost in Space.
:bulletblack: Sword and Sorcery - Hack-and-slay settings with plenty of flashy magic. Examples are World of Warcraft, Diablo, Dungeons&Dragons, or Magic: The Gathering.
:bulletblack: Urban Fantasy - The mundane world, on a second look. Fantastical characters who hide among us, like vampires, werewolves, ghosts etc. Examples are Being Human, Sanctuary, or the Addams family.
:bulletblack: Vernian Fantasy - Steampunk and Victorian times. Features improbable technology with lots of brass, and gentlehuman types of characters. Examples are the novels of Jules Verne, of course, the movie Wild, Wild West, or Castle Falkenstein.
:bulletblack: Wuxia - Eastern warrior stories. Settings feature colourful costumes and exotic weapons as much as characters of court and downbeat ruffians. Examples are Hero and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Well, the challenges don't ever expire- you can always do them.
But, yeah, I need to throw up some new ones eventually.

Is this page active?
Aerorwen Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Uhh.... Sorta. A little bit. I can be more active but it's been pretty dead around here for awhile (like half the year) so I don't check it much anymore. -_-

Can we have characters which require less research and more emphasis on character and personality? I just find each task to be such a long research project that I usually give up before I actually draw the character itself...
Ranarh Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
Thank you for pointing that out.
We try to give assignments concerning "everyday" characters, not "boss" characters. The additional info is meant as a guide, not specifications that have to be followed. Would you think, "halloween monster" instead of "will o'wisp" would have been easier, or "policeman" instead of "deputy sheriff", with the added info that this could be a London policeman or a sheriff?
RynkaDraws Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Student Digital Artist
How about, instead of a poloceman or debuty sheriff, go for corrupted cop, or firearms expert, or the boss' favorite?

What you have doesn't speak of character, or personality of the being, it's only a description of something to be research, and usually in quite a bit of detail.
Like in nuclear mutant I would have to research how flesh melts when met with nuclear particles, what treatments are applied after to patch things up, how the fragile bones and excess skin would leave scars in events long after the exposure. What a certain wound in a leg would cause to his gait and how that would affect the character's posture some time later, etc, etc, etc.
