FINAL - Torn, beaten, and broken, the citizens of Metropolis gaze at the body of superman in disbelief as he lays there in the cratered street... deathly still. With fires raging all about and extra-dimensional soldiers appearing everywhere and destroying everything in their path, the city is in desperate need of a hero. However, this evil mega army, ruled by an iron clad god... no, there is no hope. Heroes lay dead all about. Blood of innocents decorate the ash ridden streets. There is nothing that can be done. Metropolis, and all its citizens, and soon the world, are doomed! But then.... ever so slightly, the rocks where a mighty hero was once thought dead, begin to stir. First an arm, then another.... Superman, all beaten and torn slowly gets up. There are no cheers, no sounds of relief, and no cries of joy. All who stand there and all who have been watching the battle unfold on the morning news ... a fragile hope in everyone begins to mount with the rise of a once fallen man. Superman then looks up. His next attack, for better or for worse, will be .....



STAND - It has been ages since he last walked the arctic snows of the north. In the distance lays his final destination – a fortress of ice. To be here today, it was an achievement laced with great sacrifice. A journey that required a separation from the comfortable riches of the world, and an initiation into a new level of skill, awareness, intellect, and all that comes with it... Power! The doors shudder open. 10 years. A trial of patience and endurance... he laughs. Soon, he will be rewarded. With an armored cybernetic arm, he pulls out a green crystal from his coat and inserts it into a crystalline panel centered in a massive room. The lights dim, the earth shakes, and an image of a proud figure appears. With an ancient rusty old voice, the figure speaks. “What do you want?” Holding back a smile, the journeyed man states “To become a Kryptonian!" A process normally impossible for humans, he begins to laugh, for he has found a way through science. He takes off his arctic coat. A complex suite of cybernetic armory is revealed. With the power of science, together with the infusion of Kryptonian power - soon he will become known on earth as a God! Minutes later, the process is complete. He leaves the fortress and as he walks back towards civilization, he quietly whispers to himself... “I, Lex Luther, have finally returned!”

再起-已有些歲月自從他最後走過北方的北極積雪,在遠方佇立著他的最後終點站 - 冰凍堡
大的空間中,從大衣取出一顆綠水晶並且裝入水晶面板中心,光線驟暗,地面搖晃,並且一張驕傲人像影像現身。伴隨一種古老粗野的聲音,人像說:你想要做甚麼?不苟言笑,旅者說:成為一位氪星人。對人類這加工通常不可能,他開始笑了。他透過科學找到方法了。他脫下他的雪地大衣,一身智能裝甲的複雜服裝顯現,結合科學的力量,加上氪星人力量的注入 - 很快他將成為地球上眾所皆知的神!幾分鐘以後,加工完成,他離開堡壘並且當他回到文明都市,他靜靜地向自己低語... 我,雷克斯路瑟,終於回來了!

Final – Create a hero or villain in his last moments, during one epic final battle. The hero should be beaten, torn, and only have enough power left to do one final strike!
Stand - Create a hero or villain who is returning after being gone for a long period of time, or who is rising for the first time, all shiny and new (optional: new costume?), to face an epic battle. For better or for worse, this new or returning hero/villain is set to change the world!
Be creative, let loose, and have some fun. Good luck to all who join Comicon Challenge, 2014!

最終 - 創造一位英雄或是敵人,在他的最後一刻,一場經典最終戰役。英雄應該被挨揍,撕裂,並且只剩下一點力氣做最後一擊。
再起 - 創造一位英雄或是敵人,在離開一段時間後,再次回歸,或是第一次昇起,全新的閃亮的(選擇:新的服裝),去面對一場史詩般的戰鬥。無論是好是壞,這個新英雄/敵人是被設定改變世界。
有創意,更開放並且有些樂趣。祝參加 Comicon Challenge的大家好運!

To create a thread for this challenge, go here:
Thread title should be: Comicon 2014 | 3D (or 2D) | Username | Chosen Character
討論串的標題應該是 : Comicon 2014 | 3D(or 2D) | Username | Chosen Character

1. Remember, Archie is not an "action" hero and Garfield is not a super villain - they don't have weapons and they don't save or attempt to destroy the world. However, Wolverine, Battle Angel Alita, The Phoenix, Flash, Cyclops, Superman, Batman, Gambit, Daredevil, Electra, Joker, Magneto, G.I.Joe, Ninja Turtles, and many many more are all glorious examples of exactly what we are looking for during this challenge. The only restriction: one of your final images MUSTinclude an original small comic book cover or page of the character you choose to create. Simply find a cover or page online that contains your character, and stick it on one of your final images to pay respect to the original character and/or creator.
1.記住,Archie(一個高中生的在高中的故事 註解 )不是一個"動作"英雄並且加菲貓不是一個超級惡棍。他們沒有武器並且他們沒有拯救或是傾向毀滅世界。然而,金鋼狼,銃夢,火鳳凰,閃電俠,獨眼龍,超人,蝙蝠俠,金牌手,夜魔俠,幻影殺手,小丑,萬磁王,C.I.JOE,忍者龜,和很多很多光榮的例子,是我們在這次挑戰賽找尋的。只有一個限制,你的最後成品,必須包括原註漫畫封面,或你所選的角色頁面。只須在網路上找到一張封面或頁面有含你的角色,並且附在你最後完成的作品,向原始角色和/或創造者表示敬意
2. Expressions, camera angle, and final pose, is extremely important for this uniquely strong themed challenge. Keep this in mind. A t-pose model or idle posed concept illustration - not good!
2.表現張力,拍攝角度,和最後姿勢,是極為重要對這獨特強大的主題挑戰賽。請牢記在心,一個T-pose模型或是待機姿勢概念的插圖 - 並不優~
3. Characters originating from video games or movies are not allowed for this challenge (Tomb Raider, Star Craft, etc).
3.角色原始來自電視遊戲或是電影不被允許在這次挑戰賽(古墓奇兵 蘿拉,星際爭霸,等等)
4. Keep gore and nudity to a decent level please! Don’t get Comicon banned in various countries!
5. This is a w.i.p (work in progress) based challenge. Posting your w.i.p art in a personal thread on the forums, is ABSOLUTLY MANDATORY. Artists who show no work till the end may be disqualified.
6. Artists wishing to enter both 3d and concept art categories, must create a new idea for each entry. Example, if you make Superman for a 3d category entry, you cannot make the same character for a Concept Art Entry.
