CharacterFORGE 2D :: ROUND 034 :: The Avatar Challenge
Important! Please go over Plagiarism and other FAQs for these activities.
And..check out the The Challenge RULES
How to Attach Images
Name: Any CGHub.com user you can find is game!
Role: Avatars are the bite-sized pictures people use to represent themselves on these forums.
World/Setting: The world of CGHub.com is big, dynamic, and ever-changing. Our citizens range from the most bodacious of women warriors to the cutest woodland creatures, and everything in between.
Tools / Artifacts / Equipment / Weapons: Variable.
Clothing / Dress: As it is, most avatars are headshots. If the image is included in your chosen user's gallery, you can use that for further inspiration (this goes for all characteristics), but the most important thing to focus on is taking the inspiration and making it your own.
Height: See above
Stature: See above
Hair: See above
Eyes: See above
Personality: Variable, but try to keep to the character's essence. It's only a bite-sized image you have to work with, so you may have to get creative.
Here's your chance to pay homage to a favorite CGHub artist, exchange avatars with friends, or push yourself to try a new genre you've never touched on before. It's important to stress that whoever you pick, the character design needs to be done in your style. Think creatively about what you can do with a small reference image.
Note: Please post the avatar/name of the person you choose somewhere on the WIP/Finals thread.
Attached is a quick selection of some CharacterFORGE regulars and other featured artists. This is NOT all you have to choose from- you can pick any avatar on the site that features a character design. Moderators and Administrators are also fair game!

This sounds like a really fun challenge! I hope I have time for this between the two others!
Anyway, I noticed my avatar was in there O.o (weeee!) on the quick selection, so I thought I'd post a big version of it in case anybody was actually interested... http://cghub.com/images/view/114306/ (don't worry, it's still just the head, and it's just a quick sketch as well )
*goes looking for interesting avatars*

I don't know if I will have time to compete in this one, but i was bored at work so I sketched Malo's avatar.

Starexai - I like the destined lovers because it's more busy, but I like the pose she has in the exotic dancer one. Maybe you can give her a nice pose in the destined lovers one.
These are some nice poses you could play around with: http://www.posespace.com/posetool/sh...u=anastasia041, http://www.posespace.com/posetool/sh...px?sku=lexi043, http://www.posespace.com/posetool/sh...ku=sarahann019, http://www.posespace.com/posetool/sh...x?sku=luana035
The site is awesome.
