Another Competition Update

People are getting fired up about the Schoolies Competition! We've been deluged with questions, so here's some more information for you eager beavers:

The Setting

Dunbarton is a regular town with regular people who live regular lives, that is, until you go to the other side of the river, where the peaceful small town atmosphere melds into the nightmarish refuge of ghouls, ghosts and vampires. Both sides of the river are at an uneasy truce, and most people get on with their lives without hassling the other side.

Unfortunately, there is only one high school shared between the two districts, which means the students are constantly at odds with each other. Our group of friends is just one small group in a larger school; and they find support in each other where outsiders are concerned.

What It's All About

SCHOOLIES is an 11-minute comedy/horror animated series aimed at pre-teens through to young adults. It uses both comedy and horror analogies to mirror and parody the lives of teenagers.

SCHOOLIES focuses on a group of 'monsterous' friends who deal with the trials and tribulations of high school in a town divided down the middle, with regular people on one side of the river and Halloween monsters living on the other.

Character Descriptions

You can find descriptions and model sheets for the main characters here.

Hokay, so I went ahead and tried creating some designs, probably breaking a billion rules in the process. Everything below are based on some form of monster, I couldn't think of a decent creature off of the top of my head so I wikipediadededed a list and came up with Cyclops, Harpy and Murlock; the first image being a vampire. Where Vincent is a typical Transelvanian vampire, she is an American vampire; demographically speaking. But yursh, marvel; I feel I need to work on my colour schemes though, along with downsizing on the details. I'll schoolify myself laters... or, like, never.

For the record, I put fangs on her to establish her race, but colour prevents it from showing and I didn't bother lifting a finger to sort that part out... but it's there.

Originally I had a hulking, stupid, nose picking student in mind for the Cyclops persona, but somehow it turned into this. So instead it's a cranky music teacher weilding a drumstick.

Kinda decided on creating a much more deformed character in the ways of their monster persona, I threw a hand gesture in there to explain how the wings very much act the same as a hand would; the masquerade of hair made working on colour a nusance in its own right.

Then I figured I'd mold a murlock student. I think colour worked out best here, except with the eyes; initially the iris and pupil were all black and they just looked like huge puppy dog eyes. Story: He's asking why all the water in the pool has been drained.

Hope everywan likes. I found it quite entertaining to design images from a guide over complete scratch of my own style; it's kind of like a 'Create your avatar!' website or something, except you get tonnes more freedom. Not that I dont enjoy drawing in my own style though.

Modified Dan

Hey All, as a comparison, here's my rework of Dans Self Portrait! Dan drew a bang-up version but I had a few problems with proportion and complexity.

Note: The Build, the Simplification of Lines, I would like to tweak the clothing colours, but couldnt work out something that looks better than Dan did.
