I planned on taking a little break from the weekly contest, but this simpler, smaller, and more straightforward challenge seems less stressful.

I already have a 150x150 boar in my gallery :D But that's not gonna stop me from entering this one. Must it be only a boar? Or could we ... say give it a rider?

@Cure: Your last week, last minute entry was awesome.
 
As I've said before, I really just want to try to submit something every week. I think I'm going to draw a lot of inspiration from Hayao Miyazaki's boar characters in Princess Mononoke. Although, I might try to add my own brand of humour to it.

We'll see.

Thanks to the both of you.  I liked yours from the get-go, iSTVAN, the humor was wonderful.  And I can only began to wonder what buloght could have contributed.
 
As for this challenge, I'd thought it seemed right up buloght's alley, even before I remembered the piece in his gallery.  I expect you to enter something nice this time.

No problem Cure, and cheers!
 
Interesting direction Ens! It looks nearly like a colour reduction, for some reason. It would be nice to have atleast a miniture pig shape created in the lines that make up the background- just for added effect.

@Buloght: Damn straight!

I think we can go smaller, it's 150x150 max, not 150x150.
 
I think the tail looks weird, just like its coming out of the bottom half of his behind, not the upper half

Nice WIP Ens! I wasn't accusing you of colour reduction, just making an observation, as I'm sure you know.

AP: Pretty simplistic so far, both technically and conceptually. I think I liked the tail the way it was before.

Possum the first tail is better. Try to develop a BG or frame that adds some WOW factor. The challenge here seems to be making a boar unboaring 

Cool idea ens. I looked at that Chinese character but guess its now out.

...a boar, hmmm...

The Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) is the wild ancestor of the domesticated pig. It lives in woodlands in central Europe, the Mediterranean regions, across southern Asia and as far as Indonesia. Animals similar to the wild boar include the warthog of Africa and the peccary or javelina of the American Southwest; but these animals do not share the pig's taxonomic genus.

chinese new years...  get YOUR facts strait before you make yourself look ignorant...  thank you and good bye

My first shot at it. I missed the last challenge, so I thought I'd throw my... pixels into the ring this time. Looks like it's a bit bland compared to some of the others. I'll have to see what I can do about that...

Love the ideas you've got going peeps.  Ack, I better get cracking.

I was thinking of doing a lord of the flies type spin-off, but I can't get the idea put together.

ISTVAN: Awesome as usual!

df0: That is superb, so nostaligic, the atmosphere is mind-blowing.

dragonrc: I love how that is turning out.

ensellites: awesome :D, love the lanterns! Your idea is too unique

AwesomePossum: I'd say definitely better, great work.

Lollige: Hehe, miss piggy.

Wonderful WIP's everyone!

I'm finding the weekly challenge thread organization quite weird though.. Wouldn't it be easier to make a weekly challenge board with all the previous (locked) challenges in it, and the current one stickied?

This'll be my entry. Any CnC welcome. 13 colors atm...however if one feels that it'd benefit from a few more, I'm not completely against it.

Everyone's pics are really great, I'm glad that I spent the extra time on this one.
