Thanks to everyone for their entries. I was overwhelmed with the amount of options I got. Unfortunately, I have to choose only one and I have chosen "MyPrints" for the Final Character. His character's neat and clean and met my specification completely.
Doh! I was waiting for the two hour countdown so I could upload my work. :(
Nevertheless, Congratulations 'MyPrints'. :) Great work done by everyone here.
Anyone wanna buy a vector of a hiker / adventurist food lover? :P I'll sell it for $300. :D damn I'm hurting inside. I guess I'll just upload it for funsies. #62 I'd love some feedback if nothing else. Everyone's invited for the feedback :)
I read the story, and this is how I imagined Fipu ( please check my entries #59 and #60 )
I see Fipu as a handsome young man wearing cool clothes with the colors of indian flag
he looks intelligent, confident and physically strong. He's holding his backpack and ready for the Fatira Flare Journey !
the file is fully editable, the face of the character can take all facial expression kinds
The color of his cloths is from the color of the flags of all the places he has been to (I kept it subliminal in order to avoid any misconceptions).
The dessert on the glove of his left hand is actually a rough world map that tells the story of his journey. (I can maximize it for you if you want to).
I chose this body stance because when I read about Fipu I thought he was an extremely passionate guy with great love for food. This stance is form the moment when Fipu finally found the taste he was searching for (thus the tong in his right arm stretching towards the taste that would later be called Fatira Flare), that marked the end of his long journey.
Ready to make all sorts of changes. Thank You.
Fipu just got hold of the delicious fatira, he pulled his trusted spoon and had a taste. He was delighted that all his hard work has paid off. you can clearly see the joy on his face like a kid. I kind of captured the moment where he is anxious and excited about his first bite, and was not disappointed.
He wears the flag colors of his country. He has a hat on and grew his hair long, and maybe got some dread locks from his time, travelling abroad searching for that perfect food. His got dirt on his shoes to show his perseverance. he also got a compass to show him the way and a shoal to protect him from the sand.
Dear Contest Holder ,
Please check #46 and #47 and tell me what you think about them.
The explanation related to the story is that after returning from the desert and after trying very hard to replicate the delicious fatira that the bedouin women made, Fipu finally discovered the much wanted recipe.
The entire design ,but especially the smile , the thumbs up and the glowing fatira puts the emphasis on Fipu's happiness.
In conclusion Fipu is very satisfied with his achievement and he is anxious to share it with others.
Thank you ,
comment for #44
the same description as for the previous (#20) , with improvements for the composition (bigger dessert landscape and sky ) and completion for the story support ( beduin textile crochet on the hands to keep the hot fatira ) also the color of skin made more natural.
entry #20 and entry #32 (sky added for better support ):
Fipu returns from his long trip , where he learned to live by himself ( cooking tools ...) and from the last visited place ( dessert like peisage far away at his feet ), he arrives to us (sand ochre to green degradee for us to understand the trip and the changes to our personage behaviours ), so happy and trustful that the new food he discovered in the dessert he must share with all the world at his homeland (the food he is offering with both hands jumps out from the space of the sky to symbolise the boundless act of love and share ).
thanks and good luck !
Dear Contest Holder, please check my entry #30 ,
the main idea of the illustration is :
the main character Fipu, found the fatira on somewhere in the desert and it is like he found treasure because after long time searching, finally he find the food that he loved to eat every single bite. And of course, Fatira is like a treasure to him.
the # 3 was mean:(1) the facial designed with referenced by mumbai female in specially perform in the chin, the nose, and the thick eyebrows.(2) the hairstyle designed with little stylish hair but still has a little bit curly hair like the mumbai people. i made the color brighter so it can be seen in the long distance. (3) the hat, i made it simple but neat so it shows that he came from the quiet wealthy family, but i made the color with green and orange so it can shows the adventuric impression. (4) the clothes, i made it with the long dress that usually used by mumbai female, he also wear the vest to show that he also an adventurer. (5) the last thing is the expression, he shows the expression of friendly faces, that mean he is a good an nice teenager. i made the eyebrows in high position of his eye, to show that he is optimistic teenager. i think it's the explanation for me. if any visualization that not pleased you, i'm very open minded of revision and critics. thank you very much
