Character of the Week #414
Avian Cowboy
:right: Deadline - Sunday, November 20th 10PM GMT :left:

Anthropomorphise a bird of your choice, and make them into a rootin’ tootin’ cowboy.

Characterisation will be an important aspect of this challenge. Think of Disney, Dreamworks, Warner brothers, etc and their presentation of humanised animals (although you aren’t limited to a cartoony style by any means). For instance a brash showoff gunslinger might suit a cockerel or bird of paradise, a villain moodily tossing a coin in the corner could be a buzzard and a comedic plump and clumsy cowboy might be a chicken or dodo. Every part of your design should ideally ooze character.

- Humanoid anthropomorphic bird. (May have wings for arms, bird head etc.)
- May be based on any bird: flightless, extinct, etc. Nothing mythical.
- Must have cowboy hat and at least one pistol visible in design.

The Rules:

Finals must be posted in the finals thread before the deadline is stated as CLOSED.

At least 3/4 of the character must be visible (minimum from the knees up). No back views are allowed without a front please.

Only ONE character please and no multiple submissions.

Sketches or rushed artwork will not be accepted into the poll. Character MUST be readable (A 3D modeler must be able to model the character by looking at your image). Polished line-art is acceptable.

No photograph paint overs, must be 100% original work. (See next rule for exception)

3D is permitted and renders MAY be used as whole or in part of a painting, as long as YOU created the work. If 3D was used in your piece, then you must also submit a SCREENSHOT of the asset in the 3D program you used. Pre-made and/or purchased, online, assets are forbidden.

At least two wips posted with your final in the finals thread.

Design your character for the brief, not for your personal fetish. Keep the designs practical. Nude figures with no design elements will not be accepted as a design.

Please read through the thread for any posts made by the mod. They likely answered a question that was asked about the challenge!

Have fun!
