    she has set of into the wider world, to see what other trades are available for a girl who can swing a hammer and wield a wrench with the best of them.

    1.I'm thinking steampunk, but if you want to head in a different direction then go for it.
    2.no bikinis! she can be sexy but it has to stay in character.
    3.she's had a pretty hard life, so she shouldn't look like a pampered princess.

    This sounds groovy! One daft question... the description doesn't actually describe her as a miner, but a miners daughter. Does that imply she is a miner and would be kitted out accordingly, or rather she has now set off into the harsh wide world and is just a pretty hefty lass leaving her gear behind and dressed for the journey ahead?

    hey posh.
    no, she's not necessarily a miner (and not necessarily hefty either!), but having been raised in a mining family she knows her way around a large bore drill.
    so to speak.
    as its pretty much ALL she knows, i'd expect to see her looking fairly minerish, but the level with which you want to go with that is up to you.

    Really nice concept; it's nice to something a little different for a female role

    Or less...

    And, some sketchy goodness so far, thinking I may make her something other than human:

    I will go in for one more round - try and make it grittier and prettier. a little worried I may have strayed to far from the brief?

    Heres my sketch for the CHOW... if I'm able to enter as a beginner?
    I was thinking of going Digi with this just to challenge myself even more, although the results so far may have me convert back to traditional means!

    JessiBean Oooohh, keep her human! I like your sketch thus far, though I'm not fond of the over sized ax thing. Just me, but there you have it.

    Brunob Wow - 0 to 60 in .00001 seconds! Good job. Like the stuffed animal at the bottom. Would like to see the pic a little more finished, but otherwise, well done. And fast!

    Jason Strutz I like yours a lot, as well. Though again we suffer from oversized tool. Is this a compensation issue with this character? Looking forward to seeing the finished background.

    deviousg Not bad, though be careful with the ribbon thing behind her. I thought that was her arms at first. Not sure about that mechanical arm, either. I'd suggest dropping the accouterments and really punch up the anatomy some. Lets see her arms and hands. Use those to help convey her character.

    CarolineBradley yes! Please do so! (not implying that I'm an expert by any stretch of the imagination. That'd be Posh. So you'll want to talk to him )

    [edit] CarolineBradley We posted at the same time! I like the character - though again we have the compensation tool (see above ). I'd also spend some more time on her face.

    Great job so far!

    Cheers,
    ~Oreg.

    Thanks Oreg! I shall see if I can remedy her face. Although I do like the fact she can wield a large wrench that make my arms hurt just looking at it

    that was quick Brunob. Kinda reminds me of a Farscape character. Furlow was her name I think.

    This has kicked off quick! Here's some lunchtime thumbnails and one I've worked up more, when I should be writing crits!

    I keep thinking of the mining village in Miyasaki's Laputa...





    WIP... A rather hopeless attempt to do some Jon Fosteresque clouds. I really want to continue working this up but I just don't think I'm going to have time again. If I don't get it done in the week at the moment, I'm screwed as my weekends are busy... Not sure about the background, I might go back to the original villlage idea.

    Even though I know for sure that I won't find the time to make an unsketchy version of it, I thought I should post my sketch anyway.
    Sooo, here we go.

    Hmmm... if she's a rather human-looking alien? I've got it in my head to make her a moon-miner's daughter...

    Progress as follows. I saw her being really tough, rather sassy... not a delicate flower in the least. I think I had something of the Depression era and a steampunky future in mind:

    Also, Spudstudios - yours isn't going so badly, you just need a LOT more contrast in there, I can barely see what's happening. But you do have the atmosphere set, now pop her out some.

    jessibean; i like yours a lot, but i'd look at some ref for the pickaxe, it looks a bit crescent moony at the minute.

    Heres mine

    As a last desperate act the miners daughter has killed the mines outpostguardian and escapes into the wide world - out of the dark and cold mines.

    I hope I get to finish this in time, but here's an early one. She's turning to look back one last time at her home and her father before she climbs out of frame. I hope to do some commenting on others later this evening.

    I also can't decide if I should have her carrying a toolbox or backpack, evidence of which would appear behind her legs. It may just make it more confusing or hard to read. Suppose I could put the backpack in front of her, out of frame, as if she's just tossed it there.
