    Poll: C & C's for all

    Hi all - nice round! Here are some comments:

    Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the ankle and the wing. It should be semi-transparent, so I'll have to figure out how to make that work. It does look a little off, though, I agree. Personally, I...

    Thanks for the comments. I'll overlay the ref on the figure to see better what you mean. This is a pencil drawing that I'm painting over - thus the fur texture in the tail and some of the...

    Compositionally, she's looking off the page, and a prominent edge also leads us off the right side of the picture. There is a curve lower down that can help bring us back, but it's not as prominent...

    Kumiho suggestions?

    I started this one back when the nine-tailed fox spirit was the current CHoW, but then got sidetracked. I'm back to it now and turning it into a vignette. It's still in progress, but I thought I'd...

    invinciblewombat: Thanks for the paintover. I tend to go desaturated so I don't over do it, but maybe I overdid it in my moderation. I'll do an overlay to see what you did there more clearly.

    Another update. Still thinking about the castle, where I removed some of the detail. Now it's time to put it down for a little bit. Then it's time for cleanup, values tweaks, and done.
