The people have spoken and the theme has been selected! You can start picking your character/creature and posting about it. The details have been updated so please read the original post for the thread.

Next up, color scheme! I'm thinking the shirt color will be light blue / sky blue to utilize the color of the sky and the highlights in the pool. Post your color palette suggestions in the comments or I'll have to pick one.

Cool, pool party it is. In a Where's Waldo type of design having an established background will be helpful. Should we assume the design will have a high angled background like in the Where's Waldo books? If so we must all take that angle into consideration while drawing our characters.

Maybe start with something like this?

Question: Does your character have to be made using photoshop or illustrator?

I like these. Can we use one of the aquas as the tee color and get another warm color?

PeculiarTiffany
PeculiarTiffany profile pic Alumni

A nice warm coral color might be nice. Very beachy too.

nickv47
nickv47 profile pic Alumni

Hey, I'd be interested! Never done one of these before - how does it work? Do the artists individually create their characters, and then when it's done, they get assembled into a bigger canvas?

Yes, this should be taken into consideration. It will be a little more zoomed in on the area than the Waldo ones. I'll post a sketch of a potential background and angle for reference. If anyone else would like to do so then post it in the comments.


The thread has been updated with new signups and the color palette. Get to designing and posting your character in the comments to lock it down.

a question ... the character has to be full body or can be with the water up to his waist?

SteveOramA

It's probably better to be a full character. Depending on the placement within the background it could be walking or in the water. We won't know which will happen until all characters are received.

hilaryleung - cute, but I feel like the pixel art thing wouldn't work with this collab work.

Hi all - Just a heads up I'm going to be travelling in China for work till the 16th and I'm not sure exactly how much access I'll have to internet while I'm there. If you guys don't mind I'll have something when I get back stateside. :)

I was thinking of doing something playing on the various dog memes... you know like 'dog on a surfboard' / 'dog on a skateboard' sort of thing? Would that work? Or would it not be weird enough?

I get a lot of variation in picking the colors out, should they be precise ? I could go and make a kuler color theme for every one tho use - if that would be of use ?
