It's JAC Challenge time again! This week, we're focusing on facial expressions and the body movement/postures that go along with them. This challenge is based on the following challenge ideas:
Expressions Challenge :: Crazy
Draw up a collection of faces with various "crazy" expressions, whether it's moods or feelings based on the word crazy and its synonyms (a thesaurus is your friend) or exaggerated expressions you'd normally find in cartoons and other animated features.
Armor of the Future
Choose a piece of armor from any era of the past (think medieval, renaissance, samurai, etc) and redesign it to fit a futuristic setting, whether it's sci-fi, apocolyptic, Matrix or Tron like, the choice is yours!
The fan element
for this challenge is....Guardians of the Galaxy
! The newest in Marvel's growing cinematic universe, Guardians of the Galaxy is about a group rough-n-ready space outlaws (Star Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket Racoon, & Groot), banding together under the toughest of circumstances, to save the galaxy from the forces of evil. Like the previous set of Marvel films, events occurring in Guardians of the Galaxy will continue the story lines within this phase of Marvel's Cinematic Universe, which will eventually lead up to the conclusion of "Phase 2" with Avengers: Age of Ultron. For more information about Guardians of the Galaxy, you can visit the official film site
or get even more galactic goodness from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Wiki page.
