August, 2016: Fantasy Salesman
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all...

Want to buy some potions? How about mana? Treasure maps? Newt eyes? A sword that can cut through dragon scale? Whether they are a legitimate businessman or a swindler trying to con you out of your gold, you can always count on finding a seller of useful and dangerous items in any fantasy epic! This month's contest requires you to design a creative scene with a fantasy salesman!

Good Luck!

Is redesign possible?
 
HI! I'm new at this site, and so I have a question: does the image has to be 100% original? For example, can I redesign the concept of a character of a book? Or does it have to be made totally out of my imagination?

Thanks!

Well, I would think it would be best if was your own idea.

I mean of course I'm not a prof/board admin, and maybe they'd be okay with ripping someone's work; however, I don't believe so.

If you choose to build off of someone's visual ideas, than you would need to do a ton of research, making tons of additions and subtractions through iteration before calling the result your own. So why not just mind-map to create your own visual ideas?

Of course working off of cliche is a tool, especially if everyone agrees that a certain type of character has a certain type of look to be loosely adhered to, but Concept is key, and often it is considered as important as great execution.

Chuck, Mate. I remember you from the old conceptart.org forums, when the weekly challenges were in their golden days (I have no idea what's happening there these days but I know for a while it was a mess). Anyway, just wanted to say hi and say good work! You'll start seeing more entries roll in at the end of the month.

Hope all is well.

Hey Ray, thanks. :) nice to be remembered. I kinda abandoned CA a bit before things got bad.
I just didn't have fun there any more, dunno.

Hope to see lots of great art here before the month ends.

Hi Kenseer,

Welcome to the site! All the images you post should be 100% original. There's no harm in using artwork as inspiration, just keep in mind to make it your own concept. Good luck and thanks for joining the image challenge!

Hi, I'm new to the forum so pardon me for asking, but when is the final day to submit?
Thank you!

Well, here's my WIP. I've tried lots of aproaches, but they all seemed too obvious. So, I'll create a different merchant... because gold is hardly the only currency available. :D

Thought I'd try and portray a visit to a merchant late at night. Torn from his comfortable bed, he's a obviously a little grumpy and skeptical, but hopefully willing to strike a deal regardless!

Hi. I am new here. I am still trying to learn art from books and videos, I've bought Gnomon videos before but could really use a subscription. I have watched these challenges for a few months and decided to brave it and enter one. So here it is, my sales woman might have magical wares but she herself is rather plain and homely.

Angie- Follow this link, and look at the Image section. http://forums.thegnomonworkshop.com/misc.php?do=bbcode

You need to put the image on a hosting site like imageshack.com, and use the code: [img]value[/img]

The Value section will be a Forum link that you paste in-between the two bracketed abbreviations. Make sense?

UmThanks but the only part of that I understood was put my image on a hosting site, after that you lost me. How do I find the code? Is there no way to do it without code, I am clueless about it?

Hey all, so I just found these contests and they looked fun, with an awesome prize.

For my design, I chose to look at Kingkiller Chronicle's traveling salesmen, the tinker. So this is my interpretation, his cart equipt with swivel out shelving units, retractable awning, and of course of all of his wares.

I'm having trouble finding time to work on this, so I'm starting to crop some parts, simplifying the overall image. Like, I gave up coloring it... I hope it's still good.

The spiritual world is not so different than the material world. In natural order, those who lack the strenght are left behind. Hyenas and vultures will prey on the weak and old, craving for their flesh.

There are such creatures in the spiritual world as well. Forever bound to their master, the Soul Merchants reach for all who despair: those who wish power, fame, money... Any material desire can easily be fullfilled by these entities, for they are proxies of a greater power, a dark and sinister Prince of Merchants. For him, nothing is impossible.

And he can give you anything you want. You'll just have to sign the contract, that says:

"Give me what I desire, and I'll give you my soul"
