    No pen-portraits. This is ART ONLY. Posting just a bunch of text, or a scribble and a vast number of words, will get the thread closed and your account banned.

    NO MORE PHOTO-MANIPULATION "art". I'll just delete them. People have been drenching recent threads with several pieces at a time that they've knocked out in photoshop in 2 minutes with no thought at all. I consider this to be taking the piss.

    I will allow original photography.

    No more than ONE submission by any one person in any one REMAKE/REMODEL.


    THE GREEN HORNET looks like it's going to do okay at the cinema. You have the rights to THE SHADOW.

    (black slouch hat, red scarf, long black coat or cape, black suit, two matched .45 automatic handguns, fire opal ring on one finger, fought crime, could "cloud men's minds", laughed creepily while gunning bastards down, read around, you'll find all the stuff)

    So you're going to create a one-sheet showing your conception of the character, in order to sell it to a studio.

    This is Hollyweird, in 2011. You're thinking: why does the Shadow have to be a man? Why does the Shadow even have to be white? Why does it have to be a cape? It just has to be the essence of "strange person who learned weird fighting techniques from Tibetan spooks before returning to America to fill criminals with bullets, spookily."

    So what you're drawing or photographing is your conception of The Shadow for film, as a fake movie poster or a character sheet.

    That's it. You have one week. Begin.

    I have an idea I want to try out in Painter, but for now, a concept design that took me much longer than I thought it would. If I'm going to be this slow, I wish I were good.

    @Moali - I would see the movie based on that poster. Plus "Mystical bullet action"... awesome.

    The stuff Todd McFarlane has been saying about what he wants to do with the new Spawn film is very much like a re-imagining of The Shadow... CBR is quoting him as saying that the character (of Spawn) doesn't talk, and that other characters are looking at him (or perhaps just things in the room) like "did that shadow just move?" Not EXACTLY a Shadow re-do, but I'd put it closer to The Shadow than Spawn, given that it's now basically just a beastly shadow creature that lurks around off camera because of no special effects budget. Anyway, it can't be worse than another Frank Miller movie. Anybody going to go the Sam Raimi route? Or the very baseless rumor of Quentin Tarantino wanting to do it?

    Damn these are some excellent submissions - @Dronecraft ho-lee sheeit. Nicely done.

    It aches at me that even if I did pull out my little touristy Powershot and grabbed a couple friends and their pulpiest clothes and headed to an atmospheric location, I still wouldn't put together something decent enough for this. And drawing skills are... well for everyone's sake I keep to stick figures.

    But oh the pretty pictures in my head....
