Group Info -- What's On-Topic

Primitive Fantasy is imaginative artwork with a theme focusing on tribal, jungle, or prehistoric settings. It is NOT the same thing as traditional fantasy. Traditional fantasy is what you see in things like Lord of the Rings, Dungeons and Dragons, and World of Warcraft. For Primitive Fantasy, think Tarzan, Clan of the Cave Bear, and Shanna the She-Devil.

TWO IMPORTANT HINTS THAT IT IS PRIMITIVE FANTASY:

1. CLOTHING: Primitive characters wear animal skins, loincloths, leaves, feathers, beads, body paint, or anything you can make yourself when living in the woods; and some go naked. (Naked characters need other attributes such as spears, warpaint, or a proper background.) Primitive characters do NOT wear modern clothes, metal armor, or anything that would require spinning-wheel technology in order to make.

2. BACKGROUNDS: Not all pictures need to have a background, but backgrounds can confirm or disprove that the character belongs in Primitive Fantasy. Appropriate backgrounds are outdoors, including jungles, forests, caves, grasslands, and small huts. NO architecture, unless it is in ruins.

Absolutely off-topic: Modern-day scenes, futuristic scenes, cities, large-scale civilizations (including the Greeks, Egyptians, and Aztecs), advanced technology, machines, robots, steampunk, and large amounts of metal.

GENERAL RULES:

* Art must be clearly on-topic (see above).
* Fantasy characters and cultures only; no non-fantasy art of people from real cultures.
* Nudity is allowed, but it must be tasteful. No smut.
* Please put some effort into your art.
* No material that is racist, depicting rape, or otherwise offensive.
* Please submit art to the correct folder.

First of all I want to say thanks to the Founder of Primitive-Fantasy :iconskyjaguar: for letting me post this! :iconbadassplz:
Now I want to say Hey to you all! "Hello" I'm :iconsuuxe: and we from BADASS-Characters got a Contest for you all!
:iconbadass-characters:

Sense this contest is about drawing a character back to the "primitive-age" we from BADASS-Characters thought that some of you might be interested into our contest!

Short term: This contest is all about redesign a futuristic character back to the stone age!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Must be from an established movie or television franchise. That franchise can be based on a another medium, such as books or comics.

2. The franchise must be futuristic and high tech (space opera, cyber punk, etc) or the character be known for using futuristic and high tech devices (Iron Man, Batman, etc).

3. The goal is take a character from that franchise and place them into a prehistoric setting. It's an alternate character design to emphasize the primitive, savage and barbaric. The tech level should be very low, though some metal weapons might be allowed.

What we are looking for is these factors.
1. The character must be recognizable.
2. We are looking for creativity. James T. Kirk wearing a Tarzan-loincloth and holding a knife fits the criteria but it's not terrible original or interesting.
3. For the most part, think Stone Age or so tech. Because we know barbarians are popular, we can over look some metal weapons, but that's about it.

Rules:
-Has to be badass!
-Has to follow the theme of the contest.
-Sketches or low quality are not allowed.
-It has to be a new drawing, not an old one from your gallery.
-Max three submissions per participant (You are able to win more then one prize).
