    This is the new (working) face of CaP. As many of you may know, I have been commissioned by Doug to create the CaP website. The above image is a mock-up of the site.

    What I need from you, the many talented artists that peruse this forum, is, of course, art. Notice in the mock-up that the original art (in the three circles) don't match with each other!

    We are trying get a consistent set of images for the main page, so in this competition, all artwork must be submitted as a package: 1 Syclant, originally drawn by CyzirVisheen; 1 Revenankh, originally drawn by KoA; and 1 Pyroak, originally drawn by Elagune. All submissions should be full body images, since some of the art may be used in places other than the 3 bubbles.


    Good luck and have fun!

    I'll try this depending on when the deadline is ( I work really slowly for some reason ). When is it?

    Also, about what size should each Pokémon be?

    Q: Should we draw the entire pokemon, or just a portion, if it's only
    a certain area of it that's going to be shown?

    A nice canvas size of about 500-700 pixels across should be sufficient.

    Pixels, I assume, not inches, as inches would make that a rather astronomical size.

    Hey, does anyone know where I can find a front pose of Syclant? Or a pose where he's facing to the left? I don't know how his body is supposed to look like. I finished Rev so far though.

    Hey, I'm finally finished the CaP pokemon. I didn't colour it yet because I suck at colouring and I don't want to mess it up. I might try it later on and see what happens. Well, here it is:

    Sorry for the extreme larginess. I don't know how to fix it. I tried my best and sorry to those who think it's not good enough. Let me know what you guys think.

    Alright. I'm finished colouring them. The colours are all screwed up (especially Pyroak) because I don't have many colours and I don't have the right ones. I'm not even gonna win anyways so what the hell.

    You're probably laughing at my embarassing picture, but I did my best and I hope you like it. -_- What do you guys think?

    I think Syclant, not Pyroak, has the worst coloring.

    hey, i'm planning on having a go at this. so far, i've been working in paint. is this a good start? or should i attempt to draw and scan it?

    [​IMG]

    basic shapes so far. not the coloring, shading, lack of detail etc. just the pose and shape.

    Agreed, but I think Syclant is drawn the best =/
