    I don't think so since golem cannot actually age very well, plus these like rock right. You can actually curve it around so ... * shaking head *

    (Quote from Mr Goblin: Being the youngest or the oldest implies it's a living character. )
    So is like deceased character type like undead or simply cannot age won't work.

    A golem can be really old, since it's part of nature(check mountains, trees), or it can be a very young golem :D

    I think gargoyles are similar to golems thanks to sharing the same material on them; rock.

    But yeah, @Mr.Goblin should have the last word on it, but I know he likes more free approaches, and less limits ^^ (or maybe I know wrong :O)

    --------------

    And heres a very sketchy sketch that can count as a wip. I might change the composition; giving the little warrior a leverage from the sea level to get more attention, but i might just leave it like this too, I like what I did with the scenery haha :D

    DAYUM! LOVE THE ANGLE! WOOP WOOP! (also, please don't fall into the warcraft3/WoW universe, try to make your armor feel more special! :)

    Works for me! but make sure you give enough visuals features to sell the idea that he's either really old or really young. Either by giving him a really long beard made of moss, and shittons of wrinkles, or like really big eyes, red checks and the porportions of a child.

    Nice start! But remember, the character is the subject of this concept-art competition, not the landscape. You'll get far more points by making me a close up of the character with high rendering, then sketchy character in a sketchy environement. aka - the environement won't give you much points. Focus on the character

    Thanks, I'm now drawing it on photoshop in a more polished way. That's exactly my thought, I might just get him closer to the front side and itll help me add more detail on my furry possum lad! :p YES, he's gonna be a possum-boy, wielding a weapon. I'll write the background story when I post the entry :D

    the main difference between a concept-art and an illustration is = the main goal./the mindset behind their creation.

    The main goal of an illustration is to create a beautiful piece of art, with nice shading, coloring, proportions etc. it's a full package. it's The warped gift you give at christmas. It's basically an artistic statement saying = I am skillfull and this is the subject I illustrated to showcase my skills in drawing.

    Concept-art's main goal is to convey an idea first. It can be rough around the edges a little, it can be in black in white. But the reason why so many people are confused is that visually, some concept-art looks like illustrations. But that's because the artist choose to render everything he drew almost to perfection because he really wanted to convey his ideas completly and leave very small room for imagination. The artist being like = I want to inform people this armor piece is made of leather, and has some nice ruins patern on it that are golden because it fits the narative the the universe etc. so Visually, some concept-art and illustrations can be the same, but it's the mindset behind both that are completly different.

    Hi guys.
    I'll try to join this time too.
    This is the very first sketch. An old warrior decided to stop and relax while drinking a warm mate. Or also know in my state "ChimarrĂ£o".
    I'll chance a lot of things, like the sword, but I hope I can enjoy challenging myself after so much time without drawing.
    Good luck to everone!

    It seems the Contest Rules and Conditions are updated now! According to the current Universal Rules found in the templates thread: Templates

    It even contained these rules:
    Which didn't apply to Concept Art so I just removed them =P
    So it's updated now unless I missed something.

    @Flyphor that's a cool warrior concept, I liked it a lot! I wanna see the final result.

    Draw on guys! Let's get to see dem WIPs!

    Yeh, the "resource sections" stuff applies for quite some contests, so it's just in default set of rules.

    Criteria on which contestants will be judged are yet to be updated. PointValue/Scores of the aspects is currently undefined.

    Judges should get +rep, as well.

    Also:
    ^it seems like a judging criteria that defines how to reach points, next to the theme description. (?) It seems it can be interpreted a bit arbitary at its current position. But anyways, maybe it's nicer to implement this definition straight into the theme description like "Create a warrior not based on a narrative universe", and then simply the Theme criterie applies, to deduct scores if it doesn't match.

    Glad you like it, I thought it is a weird idea to draw it at first. I just want the young golem to hold some equipments, but dunno which is the most suitable :p Just put a hammer for viewing and stimulate some inspiration (might replace it if there is better idea).
    Btw I find that you post your WIP (kite boy), at your own thread if you want enter competition you must post it at here (according to rule).

    Some progress to show:

    Thanks for having my back! I'm new to these new templates. My mistake was to copy paste the data from the previous concept-art competition.

    Yeah I took the liberty to add this rule since it has been a big issue in the past few concept-art competition. Many hivers lost countless points for great sudmissions in the past. Since it's a warcraft forum people are bound to make something based inside the warcraft universe, but since it'S a concept-art competition, this contest requires people to be ''creative''. so by adding that rule, I just wanted to make sure people would know better from now on.

    I'm happy we are having this discussion.
