    Patxinaki If you don't feel comfortable with it then don't fix what isn't broken. You can always do an effects layer in Photoshop and set the saturation to zero to check up on your values. I've been forcing myself to do an underpainting recently and it's been working for me, better then my usual hunt and peck saturation/value/hue method. As for the overlays you should check them out, their really cool for adding additional colors and variation. Photoshop overlays are the bomb really. Check out Jason Chan's quick sketch video to see some expert use of both overlays and grayscale.

    Jeremy I like the outfit, but it's feeling a little bit like one of the village ninja from Naruto. Why not try pushing the char in the direction of something more otherworldly. Wings, horns, a head that pops off on a hinge to reveal a giant mouth, etc...

    Oregano Forget the FB! I want to see some more of your sic WIP!

    PaTXiNaKi,can I ask you a stupid question..How do you pick your colors? Is it the method of painting or you just listening to your stomach? I'm having a tough time with colors..

    Curly Here's some stuff that might help you help yourself. http://loserlunatic.deviantart.com/a...e-Bar-64451937 There's also a book by Betty Edwards called "On Color" that helped me out when I started painting last June. If you look around Concept art there are available resources aswell, and Jason Manley is going to eventualy be releasing a DL vid on the subject.

    Just found this.. monstrously aweseome thread.



    Reminds me of why I stopped drawing for a while. Been real down on myself, and I just can't seem to break out of the same, annoying, stiff poses. I couldnt even make it look like he's walking. I'm so ticked. But I'll finish this tonight.

    I can't foreshorten. I finally got biceps/triceps looking OK at least...

    Blackrobin I love that angle you chose. It's perfect for the interaction between a person and your host. Your not far enough along to really hit anything specific. It's a really strong start. If you want the face to be more human check the eye position in relation to the center. If your stylizing it then I like it as is.

    Update:

    I decided to go with a more dynamic pose...so I had to do some redrawing. Still need to go over and fix the wonky parts (wings, cloth, and the addition of the staff) and then do the final inking and coloring. Ah yes...and the alternate version. I'm really pushing it....

    I've really lost all objectivity at this point. I keep painting and repainting the same parts at this point. Still have two days worth of time left to mess with it. I'm hoping I don't decide to just reconcept the whole thing.

    Daestwen Sidebar question. Do my three original thumbs count as alternates to this one and cover the sidebar requirements, or should I be like drawing some extra things on this one as alternate? Do you want the sidebars posted with the finals?

    Mcross I think your making the right call changing the pose up. Don't forget to leave time to do a sidebar.

    I went back in the thread to see what you were talking about (next time, link me ) and yeah, they look fine. They are alternatives, after all, doesn't matter if you drew them first or last.

    And to re-itterate for everyone:

    PLEASE POST THE SIDE BAR WITH YOUR FINAL OR YOU WON'T BE TAKEN TO POLL.

    We let you guys off easy last time because you weren't used to the rule yet, but I *will* be cutting those who don't follow it this time, no matter how soft Oregano wants to go on you.

    Thanks Daestwen, I didn't even have the forethought to link it, sorry about that. Ended up making an alternate anyway just incase I'd need it. Tragicaly I think I like it better.

    So I got a bit of tweaking left, plus the sidebar... Not sure exactly how much more I will spend on it in time, but here is where I'm at right now.
    Sidebar will be Alternative type of Host-same character.

    Curly NP, there aren't any stupid questions and I'm glad to help when I can. If you open up the color wheel in Photoshop or Painter you can use overlays over the value wheel to paint the color your working with and then just eyedrop it as needed. There's alot of things to consider when picking your color scheme, but any reading you can aquire on the subject of color theory will really go a long way to making you feel confident about what your painting. I'm really hoping they go foward with Jason Manley's color theory DL sooner then later. All the downloads and DVD's take for granted the aspect's of color theory that as profesionals they already have ingrained into them at Massive Black, and I'd love to hear his take on something so important.

    Studio Colrouphobia I like the veiny skin on the chest. It may just be me but I'm having a really hard time telling if those are teeth and it's his mouth or if it's a scar or something. It may be obvious at reagular size and getting lost when you shrink it down, maybe just pop a tiny bit of highlighting in there to make it read better.

    I'm trying to learn whenever I can.
    But for now it seems that it's time for practice and finding things by myself. I'm already disappointing myself though, but I'll keep painting more and more till I become satisfied with my coloring skills!Here's a little progress.

    I have a sidebar question, how finished do you want that piece, or can it be a sketch, sketch +values ect. I have taken up the habit of sleep deprivation to finish these :/

    Thx Whistler!

    One question about side bar:
    What does "alternative version of the host" actually mean? Do you mean for example if our host is demon the alternative must be angel or something? Or by alternative you mean alternative appearance of the one we drew?

    ManaBurn: Naruto is after my time I'm afraid. I looked up some pictures and I think I see what you're talking about. It has a Ninja-like outfit that I didn't even realize when I drew it. Also, it seems the Characters in Naruto have the same high collar things.

    I think I answered this already, but I'll answer it again. It just means alternative version. Period. Whether that's doing a different race, or just a different outfit, is totally up to you.

    AND FOR EVERYONE ELSE:

    As you may have heard rumours, big things are in the works for next weeks ChOW, but in order to arrange everything properly, you officially have a deadline extension!

    NEW DEADLINE IS 23:59 (11:59 P.M.) ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 14th.
