Han Soder's tardy submission

Okay, I fail this time automatically because of my extreme tardiness. I had done a bunch of pencil sketches of various carrier ostriches. I felt like they were a bit too conventional, or similar to the previous submissions. SO, one day during a break from painting I taped a piece of canvas up and just sketched this out with little planning. It is an ostrich who carries souls to hell.

An old inventor (human) who makes a bionic arm that is one part MegaMan blaster and one part intelligent robot puppet. I don't know... I made this up as I was typing...but sounds good to me!

Carrier Ostrich : Mr. Toad

So my idea for Carrier Ostrich is that he is a Mail Man (bird) type, but like all Ostriches, he eats everything. Even things that shouldn't be eaten, like a mail box or a package. I did a bunch of sketches, and then attempted to add some color with Watercolor. I also used the same body and photoshoped the different heads on him.

Assignment Three: Carrier Ostrich

For our next assignment, we will be doing a Carrier Ostrich (think Carrier Pigeon). He should be some type of wacky Ostrich who carries any type of thing, ie. mail, packages, people or whatever you choose... Please describe your story when you post.

Due - May 27th (post anytime throughout the day)

War Pigs by Hans Soder

I went with a WW1 theme. My father was in that war and while generally looking and behaving normally he did have a piggy nose. So these are dedicated to his memory.

War Pig (Mr. Toad)

So, here is my war pig. I realized its hard to draw pigs, but after many attempts, here is what I came up with.I may do some other versions with other uniforms/weapons, but this is it for now. I also posted my original sketch on tracing paper before I finalized it. I tend to like these better than the final....

First Mission: Alligator/Crocodile Guy (Mr. Toad)

And Finally, Mr. Toad is publishing his post. I went a few directions with this one, a cartoony guy, and the other more of a cool illustrationy feel, in the spirit of Heinrich Kley. The top is the final sketch (though in pen and ink), though not sure how it would translate into a animation.

Hans officially submits his humble attempts...The top image is the final representation of the challenge: An alligator-man self-conscious about wearing a Lacoste polo.

Next mission: War Pigs . . . any war, any weapons...just pigs ready for war.
