RENEGADE! Results:

Jason: Renegade wondering the streets of some seedy town. Mostly I just wanted to mess aground with ink washes.

Tayte: A bit of a renegade himself I drew this weeks sketch with my younger brother in mind.

Simon: Renegade wildebeest?

Jean-Paul: A man with a katana is a renegade. Also, he loves the ladies.

Going Medieval Results:

A Mothers Love: results...

Tayte: cheese ball

Jason: Just a mother watching over her young.

Simon: A quickie, touching on the uniquely perverse way in which certain parasitic wasps feed their kids. I can't think of much worse then getting eaten alive by larvae while paralyzed.

Courtney's Contribution

Michael's piece: bit of a metaphorical approach, sorta shut my brain off and drew like a five year old.

Samantha Lucy's piece: it's picture day? for Sasquatch?

Crevasse of the Jötunn: RESULTS!

Tayte: I have no idea what nordic giants do, but I thought that this was funny.

Simon: It's a butt joke, kind of.

Richard: A quickie. The Jotunn sure do enjoy a nice homestyle spit-roast.

Jason: Frost Giant.

Jean-Paul: Dirty Frost Giant, right in the eye!

Michael Glaser's take on "Crevasse of the Jotunn".

And Courtney Louise's excellently weird contribution.

On a side note, if you're an ACAD illustrator who wants to draw with us, send us your drawings for the weekly topics!

VIKINGS!: Results

Jason: No big story here, just wanted to do a b/w ink drawing.

Jean-Paul: Winter is bitter, and unforgiving; my Viking warrioress is both.

Richard: Just a half-complete sketch and color from me this week.

Tayte: Just a kick ass viking rocking an evil narwhal with a giant post!

June 17, 2011


Next project be vikings. Due June 24th.

Military Robot: Results

Richard: This is a non-combat, utility droid. Useful in the cleanup of toxic waste sites and general heavy waste management. A bit of something along the lines of the Wall-E concept.

Simon: Your standard military cyborg soldier, circa 2300.

Jean-Paul Csuka: a communist robot finds love.

Jason: The military has secretly been harvesting the brains of fallen soldiers and has jump started and installed them into these mech units to create advanced artificial intelligence.

Military Robot

Our next topic, due next friday - NO EXCUSES.

June 9, 2011


Richard: I'm done early with this one. Pretty straight forward, a gun-totin', tobacco-smokin' bad-ass.

Simon: A day early for me too. In doing this one, I guess I just figured the doing some boring old human in western clothing was NOT ENOUGH. So here - the fastest tentacle in the west prepares to bring hot death on some desert bandits ( out on some godforsaken planet further up the galactic arm).

Jason: I was inspired by 'The Great Silence' to do my gunslinger in a winter setting.

Tayte: They say that when you kill a man you keep his soul, I like to think that this how some of the souls that this old gun slinger has locked up might look like.

Jean-Paul: They pissed off the wrong gunslinger.

June 3, 2011


Our next topic. DUE NEXT FRIDAY!

Gentlemen of Fortune: Results

Jean-Paul: This is a my inter-dimensional bubble maker, he roams metaphysical planes in his pink elephant. A Gentlemen of Fortune? He carves out his own path, because he is a drawing he's fortunate to be a creation, his only reason for existing is to be cool, that is some kind of fortune.

Simon: I ended up thinking more about my recent trip to Las Vegas, and the inherently illogical and weird nature of the entire city - and hell, gambling itself! These were the kinds of dudes you'd see shouting over the craps tables while we were playing $2 blackjack a few tables away...

Jason: The term 'gentlemen of fortune' made me think of a old fashioned adventure story.

Richard: Okay, here is my gentle man of fortune. I don't really know what was going on here but whatever, I like it.

Tayte: I have recently read Treasure Island and have had the idea of Pirates in my head for a couple of weeks. They are described in the book as 'Gentlemen of fortune'. This is Long John Silver and another pirate with an unfortunate acquaintance.

Gentlemen of Fortune

Alright guys, sorry for those who have already started on the ill-conceived "Gunslinger" challenge. Tayte is in line for the suggestion so I suppose his will take precedence. This week the topic will be Gentlemen of Fortune ... yeah. Go for it.

Just a reminder: DUE ON FRIDAY

Alien Ant Transport: Results

Simon: "In September 2007, tardigrades were taken into low Earth orbit on the FOTON-M3 mission and for 10 days were exposed to the vacuum of space. After they were returned to Earth, it was discovered that many of them survived and laid eggs that hatched normally." Basically, this pieces is a tribute to the strangeness and majesty of the noble Water-Bear (or Tardigrade) - who are so strange and tough-as-fuck that they might as well be aliens.

Richard's Entry: I don't have a cool story like Simon, just a cool alienoid ant with a human rider. EDIT: Just realized that it wasn't a story but an actual account of Tardigrade history. Those bastards are incredible.

Tayte: This is my Alien ant transport, hes sort of a saddle back taxi service.
P.S. Sorry about the timing with my posts, I could give some lame excuse but instead I will just post on time from now on.
