Dammit...couldn't post my WIP yesterday. Couldn't get onto the boards...and that's not a gripe, totally understand with the upgrade work going on.

wheee! shines the spot light on Stu!
To see the world in a grain of sand, and a heaven in a wildflower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.
I need to get crackin serious on this thing! I'm just now gettin out of the sketching stage, and people are already done... I'll be posting a wip later though.
well, think of the world she's in.. how does it look? right now she's just a girl in a dress.. put her in a forest as to at least fit the topic a bit more
go crazy with trees, branches, leaves, moss, dirt, umbrellas, diet coke cans and silly fridge magnets!
Count me in- I shalt gladly join the DARK SIDE *thunder, lightening, cowering kittens etc.*
Cookiedough- That's a very cute goddess, she looks very happy and peaceful.
vibhas virwani- This could turn into a very nice goddess. I like her expression.
I think you should try to make her look more like a woman who lives in the woods.
Right now, she looks a little bit too urban for me, she might need some accessories that give her a ' natural' look.
You could for example think of doing something interesting with her hair and add some wood-related stuff to her dress.
Might be a matter of taste, but I don't like her earring so much.
Maybe she wears something that is more related to the environment she lives in.
These are of course only suggestions, but maybe they are helpful.
Been looking at lots of pictures of chloroplasts, Zeus, Thor, and autumn (there aren't many contexts where that makes sense )... I've been basing most of the design off generic leaves, and these beauties:
WIP thus far - really messy, hopefully it shalt look cleaner as it nears completion (this image is a bit shrunken)
It's lots of fun trying to find the balance between powerful!godly, evil, and ... leaves
Laumee - I love the leaves at the bottom right: did you stick them on? However you did it, it's a great touch
Thanks muffin_wrangler, I'm glad you like it.
Your god already looks evil, I like the red.
The leaves are real, these are tiny pieces of leaves actually.
I've forgotten to write what materials I used: It's indian ink, gouache, leaves and a lot of glue.

thanx laumee....here is what i made ...b4 i read ur comment ....mayb ur right !!!! ill do smthing about it ....but for now i am PROUD of myself ...this is my 3rd digital painting ....so what do u think ??........criticism plz....
vibhas_virwani- You did brilliantly on the arm: maybe a little more tonal variation in the face would make it just that bit spiffier. Also, I know it's a pain in the backside, but if you drew the leaves on the forest instead of using the leaf brush thing, the whole picture would look that much more professional... Crits aside, I like your goddess, especially her hair
hey i have really weak basics ...never taken any sorta classes ...so i didnt get what you are talking about ...(tonal variation ???)....and ur right about the leaves.....ill wrk hard on them ...ohh n the lips seem a little wierd to me what is wrond with them ?? what shld i do ??

Waaah... why do I just find out about this NOW? I wanna play too! Can we still join in on round 2 if we missed round 1? Pleeeeease...?

Maaaybe I can scrape something together for round 1, but I doubt it, I still have an evil genie to finish over at CHOW...
