Hello and welcome!

This is a spin-off of the original GFX Art Battle, but with some updated rules and changes. Please make sure to read the rules before entering, since they have been modified. Good luck, we look forward to seeing some creative artistic entries!

Competition Rules
1. Must be hand drawn, either on paper or in a program. It can then be manipulated in an graphics program. But unoriginal artwork cannot be used as the main focus. Copyrighted images cannot be used. All pieces containing copyrighted images will be disqualified.
2. Submissions must follow the current theme that has been chosen by a moderator for that week. If you submit more than one piece, please clarify which one you would like to be judged.
3. If your image is larger than 600 pixels wide, please provide a link to the image instead of posting it in the forum. Otherwise, the image will be cut off.
4. Artists cannot win in subsequent weeks. You can still submit, but if you won the week before, you cannot get first place again the next week.
5. After the deadline, a moderator will pick the winner, and they will be awarded a 25 AP award.

He/she is a character from a comedy show The Mighty Boosh. It is pretty surreal and not to everyone's tastes. I think it's hilarious.

You should probably watch the whole episode to put it into context otherwise it's even more weird than it is, but here's a vid I found on a quick search.

Soooozzz....my entry, if it counts, the thing I'm worried about is the Rhino bit, since everyone is literally putting an actual Rhino of some sort =(
The only thing I have 'Rhino-y' is that the character is named Lt. Rhino, cause that's kinda what I extended it to XP

This next image is not an official entry- it's sloppy and most of its appeal is based on an injoke with Klaus. So:

REMEMBER THE NINJA PENGUIN, KLAUS!?

You consider that sloppy?I have seen official entries from you that didn't look half as good,but maybe its just me liking the glowing red eyes and bright from what looks like the rhinos hand.How did you do the whole glowing eyes thing anyways?

Like the time I tried to use a combination of MS Paint and Open Canvas for the Night round, god that was fail xD

But yeah, I consider it sloppy because I was doing it as fast as was humanly possible (under an hour). It just looks fancy because of the glow and the splashes of texture brush. The glow was done using layers/brushes set to "addition" mode as opposed to "normal".

well I couldn't find the addition mode on Photo Shop so I am wondering what program you are using,but anyways I started screwing around with some of the modes on Photo Shop and ened up with something that looked demonic.

No this is in no way an official entry

Not sure what the interfect in PhotoShop is like, since I used GIMP. But I'm pretty sure you can change the layer and brush modes in PS...it's nothing to do with filters or effects!!!

...how did I end up saying "interfect" instead of "interface"?

This is why one should never mix studying with recreation!
