    Alright! Christmas dump 01! MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS!
    these are all our of my moleskine except for the last one.
    All are from life except the 2 colored pieces I've been trying that "one calculated stroke no random noodling" approach to life drawing and i think my line control is improving little by little... do give me your thoughts!
    Also a more geometrical stylized approach to the human figure in the last page and next to the red haired portrait gotta keep at it!!

    Slash - hee! thank you my love
    Clochette - thank you Clo!! MERRY XMAS!
    Duq - thank you Stephan!!! X3

    AAAND update 02 of the night! long (or slightly longer) poses range 5 to 15 minutes. I actually have a bunch more but they're on A2 that I left at school for practical reasons... stupid, I know :<
    these are A3 so too big to scan, thus necessarily photographed with my camera...
    sorry for the less than satisfactory quality! hope they are still visible enough to crit!

    first one was a splurt of anger on the paper using acrylics paint... dont sweat it lol. I thought an sb should show the good, the bad and the ugly...

    Slash - gotta work those pencils!

    alright sorry for the spamming ( i hope its not forbidden...) but CA has a tendency to eat my huge posts and make me cry so here i am mini posting...
    today's 3rd update is progress on my Alice In Wonderland woodblock print, a diptych now featuring Alice surrounded by spermatozoids with a jammy toast on her head, and the March Hare surrounded with woman eggs (i know proportional scale to the spermatozoids is not accurate, stylistic choice ^^)
    Overall shot and detail shots! its an A2 wood plank so i cant but photograph it... sorry for the crap quality!

    Rockin updates! Your figures are looking really nice, reminds me how much I miss my figure drawing class in college. I really like the girl in the colorful dress further up the page and the colored pencil foreshortening piece. No crits, keep it up!

    Lovely works you have here, Petite. The ones that catch me eyes are your woodblocks and videogame screencaps and designs. Love the concept for the Alice characters with the female/male reproductive cells/base structures. I'm curious as to what your thought process was/is that leads you to this concept?
    Also, The handling of the feet/lower legs is fantastic! I had to think about it for a second, good job. Have you ever played a PC game, "American McGee's Alice"? I think you'd dig.

    The videogame looks cool, is it playable? can I play it? It's flash right? Have you ever heard of XNA? Assuming your on windows of course.

    I definitely see improvement in the quality of your sketches/figure work.

    Oh and thanks for stopping by my book!

    AA-ron - yeah, life drawing is probably the only thing I'll miss from college! thank you!

    tsujni - thank you tsujini! I've heard of American McGee's Alice and been dying to play it, but never could find it ;-; also i run on mac so XNA for me... As for the meaning behind the spermatozoids/Alice it all comes down to the ambiguity that you find within the novel itself. Upon re-reading it when I decided to make my master's degree a reworking of it, I realized that book was a perfect balance of mature horror and lighthearted child storybook. Throughout I felt uneasy, uncomfortable; I guess if i had to compare it to a phase in human development, it would be those all too awkward puberty years; utter confusion. I chose to approach my subject from this angle and focus on the uncomfortable ambivalence in my character designs as well as my re-writing of the story. As a result of it, and as you can see, my Alice and March Hare are a mix of child like features, with adult attributes and a curious outlook upon their wonderland. they are fragile yet bulky, absently focusing on something they really want to know about. Since the diptych is a character double portrait, I wanted to portray my characters with elements that represent them or interest them; here Alice, the very curious little girl's psyche, is overwhelming the March hare's (thus his surprised look as opposed to her calm intrigued face) and surrounding them with reproductive imagery (which is how my school taught sex ed: exclusively at the cellular level ); of course the March Hare's psyche has its say as well, but the poor bastard knows nothing except that it's always tea time; hence the tea time themed background in both portrays.

    ...PHEW!! I wonder if anyone will read that... oh well at least I explained it! haha

    Katzenminze - thank you very much Katze! this is MDF tho, we cannot find linoleum here ^.^ I'm glad you like Alice and the March Hare, kinda bummed it's Tim Burtonny, def wasn't my intention :< i guess creepily cute will always be associated with him!

    Today's update is my *slow* progress on CHOW 140; the Bettie PAge tribute, rest her soul, and this week's chow; the christmas ghosts!
    Photoshop failed me hard while i was working on the ghost so i had to completely redo it. I know, photoshop save reflex fail :'( gah!
    will have to work harder tomorrow... also worked on NDA pieces today, but those are unfotunately NDA... BOO!

    Argh dammit, i typed a loong reply for you, so long in fact that i got an error message saying i was no longer logged in. Tried pressing back, but it didn't work.. fine.. i'll type it out again, but its gonna be a little less elaborate this time.

    I'm just typing this out to remind you of the stuff we talked about on skype: I love the christmas ghost piece, i see great potential in it. I will make sure you finish this one, no matter how long it takes. No more unfinished chows! T_T

    I think you should draw inspiration from the lotr ghost army for this one. But instead of the pale greens from the movie you use the pink, blue and purple you have going on here. The background color needs to change. Her arm holding the stick is too short, or badly foreshortened. Her hand on that arm is too small as well. I don't know if the big foot is a stylistic choice, but from a "correct anatomy" point of view its too big.

    Make sure you fix ALL of the basic forms before rendering. I don't wanna see any noodling until after all her shapes and limbs are elegant and pleasantly proportioned. It's much easier to achieve a good result if you don't have to go back and second guess anything in the middle of the rendering process too. And sometimes stuff doesn't work, and it needs to be repainted, better to realize that at the sketch stage, right?

    So yeah, keep working on it, its rewarding to see how you're progressing. Not long ago getting to this stage would have taken you ages. Now you did it in i dunno how long.. 1 hour after your photoshop crashed? I'll be looking over your shoulder every step of the way on this one, It's gonna be a portfolio piece, and an awesome one at that.

    Cya tomorrow litol spoon!
