    Sketchbook!

    Working on the full-body version of Dante. I'm working on getting her anatomy right before I plug her into painting mode. Any crit on that would be lovely.

    Glad to see you got this thing up and running!

    Something I've recently started doing that helps a ton- measuring the figure via the head size. I wrote it off after I initially practiced and implemented the technique back in high school (a decade ago. EEK), but after going through my old sketches and measuring, I was way off. Half my figures were like 5 heads tall.

    You did one of my favorite digital cheap tricks, copying the head from a portrait for the full figure. What a time saver :P

    I need to write all that measuring stuff down. And oddly, once I started tweaking the anatomy, I was second-guessing everything. And losing, it apparently. I had some stuff right to begin with.

    Actually, it isn't the same head cut-and-paste-style, if that's what you mean. I copied it from the other, though. I had them side by side and did it that way, which was really fun, actually.

    I'm in the process of moving and a million other things, otherwise I'd use my scanner for these.

    I think you could use some more work on anatomy. Posemaniacs is a great place to practice. Maybe pick up a pad of bristol board to draw on. Also try painting on a 25% gray background to better see values.

    Welcome to CA keep posting away plz! And keep up the good work!

    Still ghetto-rigging my images. I guess I *didn't* burn a copy to disc to take to work with me...

    Need some references (back, folded hand, etc.):

    This is looking pretty cool. I'd take the black between the ribs and either fill it with more magic dust and sparkles or make it nice and gory

    I love the horns but my favorite part is the highlights on the dress. Nice and crisp.

    What's the plan for the background? It looks like she is sitting in a cave, peering out into the night.

    Oooh, love the gory idea! I want to go more creepy and less cute, pixie, etc. Thanks about the dress, I'd love more clean smooth lines but I think it's starting to work.

    I played with the background last night but wasn't feeling it yet. My inclination is to go magical forest on her but maybe something a little more...hellish?

    oo, that girl with the exposed vertibrae really makes me cringe. That is a good thing . I noticed you must be right near me. I saw the ac state which is a good chance that is sac state. so Howdy neighbor! also a better example of more recent tattoo wrk can be found here.

    Hellish is always good, especially around these forums.

    If you want inspiration, check this out:
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=108591

    Lots of good hellish stuff in there for color scheme and texture ideas. How cool would she be with a gory mix of blood/bone/tissue combined with fire/stone?

    That post I linked is full of completely amazing artwork. Here is some more:

    Makes my head hurt ;P
