    Here is my WIP. I had a really bad day today. Was feeling pretty bad all day. Still chipping away at it, I know I still have a lot to do, but I'll work my hardest to get in done on time.

    I hate how scanned artwork translates online.

    I show here the final versions, so if you think it will not work in the voting, you can tell me beforehand.
    K, I'm working on it now, though photobucket isn't liking it very much. It looks like it's coming up animated, but it's cutting off the last few seconds of animation and making photobucket hang for a while when I try to re-upload it. Any way of cutting down the filesize? (Or making it a slightly shorter version for the poll?)

    edit: Never mind, I got it to work. You're all good. :]

    Hi
    Well, I'm finally kind of happy with the whole impression (colors, composition, anatomy). Now it's only a question of stamina D: Let's work on the details



    The theme is so much fun.
    I love to scroll through this thread and look at all the crazy, funny, great ideas behind your drawings

    @Ramariel: The two pictures you postet are so cute. I this your dog? I'm envious You chose a really hard pose. Good luck with finishing your drawing.
    @The Jester: For all the "firsts" your drawing looks really good. Good color choice but maybe you can try a little bit more color variations and more contrasts.
    @Dani Duck: The scan is really too bright. It's difficult to see the arms in front of the light background. The face looks more sad than evil. Maybe you can experience a little bit more with the facial expression.
    @Hungryan: Awesome idea and awesome realization. I really hope, it'll work in the poll.

    Hi Helen Yes. Actually, my first attempt on a CHOW *__*
    You look so completely evil in your drawing *laughs* Maybe you can try to make your hands more filigree. They look a little bit plump.

    I will try to give some comments to everyone in the finals thread, sorry if I miss someone, there seem to be a million-gzillion works now. If I criticize, I only do it to help people out, and I don't say that I'm any better, so no offense. And sorry fo my spelling, this was a lot to type in.

    Gax: I like your special style, it's something fresh to look at.You have great stuff, this seem a little bit more rushed, but still very cool.

    Stoat: I can feel the heat coming from there. The weapon seems a bit neglected compared to the rest of the picture.

    Matjosh: Nice idea that it's similar to the goblin design of yours. And I like turtles!

    Capnpyro: I somehow liked your linework better than the finished piece. The lef breast seems a bit out of place.

    Tetrodotoxin: It looks very much like a photo, which must have been hard to do.
    The left hand's knuckles is kinda misinterpreted.

    LT Action: you imitated the Japanese woodcut style very well. The upper hand seems strange to me, and I don't really get what this villain can do, but I don't know much about japanese myths, maybe it's because of that.

    FerrousJack: The version where he lifts the chain seems more interesting to me, but I like the design and the head certainly has some character.

    Deadred: My brother told me that this is very nice and funny concept, and he was right. You must have great sense of humor. I like it.

    Vaughany boy: A bit rushed, the hands are small, and the arms look like rubberband.

    JShamburger: It has very nice colours, the face is very much like yours. Good job really. 1 critique: the legs look a bit squashed, something weird is going on there with the perspective.

    Graphuji: The hand pointing down seem a little small and the head a bit big probably. it's nicely rendered on most parts.

    t i m: Really funny look, in my opinion the green/orange version was a bit more interesting.

    Trevor: Really professional work, all I can say is wow.

    shannanigan: I like you on the picture much more than the zombies, they seems to be in a different style. The whole picture has a great atmosphere, and you've really found the character.

    anamirela: Szep munka. Almost like a comic cover, and a good idea there. 375 Ft hehe. My critiques are that the pipe seem to be a little bit too smooth at some parts, the arm going down too long, the vadli (don't know how it's called) too thick. In general: you have some problems with the perspective/anatomy, but it stil seem to work somehow.

    Artofinca: There's a little drawing in the top left corner of the picture of a figure leaning to a wall in the sketches. That one is really great! The final version could have used a little exaggeration on the face also, ot less on the body perhaps? I don't know.

    Darkwolf: I think it could have used some more work, for example the arm he leans on seem to break at a strange position, but there's a lot more anatomy problems, and the coloring of the whole piece is very rushed. Slow down, and use more reference images, study anatomy more.

    Gerbil Fetus: I like the face, it's nicely sinister. There are some anatomy and perspective problems though for example the feet look like loafs of bread, the further arm seems to come out from the body in a right angle, etc. It's a believable superhero character.

    dirkvandulmen: Very funny, I like it.

    Baxter-E: You've catched the hellboy style exceptionally well, my only complaint is that you seem to have a very strong character in your face, which I don't see on the picture.

    TengkuAdam: I like the concept, it's not even a big problem that it's rushed.

    Justconner: Scary!

    Masque: I think I already told you, but you've got an interesting, original style of rendering!

    Tugelbend: WOW! you are extremely talented, I've checked your sketchbook also! Five stars! How do you make those rainbowy lines?

    NateShaw: you don't seem very healthy the shadow across the chest seem to punch a hole in the character. Interesting idea.

    Clockwork Bunny: The tummy seem to be missing any kind of anatomical detail, looks strange. the head is not really connected to the neck because of the angle the are drawn I think.

    Zilrion: The whole pose is very stiff, but especiallythe hands. You used nice smooth rendering.

    LA-Fairy: That fullbody photo is superhot, is that you? A lot of things doesn't have roundness the tummy, the arms, because you use straight lines there too much. The head is huge, and I think cutting the picture at a joint wasn't the best idea.

    Grandmassa MR Spect: You could have made the character a little bigger on the picture, that case we could see your face better. The sixpack on his chest not really correct, because it covers too big portion.

    dustin53545: The lineart had great potential, I think the background takes away from the picture a bit.

    Nadiamoon: Really interesting, surreal picture. I like it. What's her special ability?

    Greg Taylor: Nice loose stuff, the sketches showed that it will be good (I like the reddish one a lot). You could try to detail the hands a bit more.

    Sen Holiday: She's kinda jokerish methinks. Interesting pose.

    Sticmann: I like the style and textures a lot, the foot going to the darkness seem to be more like cut off.

    Phew, this was tough, I will try to find time on the rest later, but maybe I will only have time at the voting. One more thing: Jessibean: WOW.

    Thanks Hungryan! I made a couple of tweaks. Only thing I can see on yours is that on the big guy, the little finger on the distant hand looks almost broken.

    Graphuji: No problem mate. I think you are right about the finger, but I will not have time to fix it, so it will stay as it is for now.

    hungryan you're awesome for pointing that out! I'll try to change it, if I'll have time...
    Your idea is a very cool twist to this, I'm so looking forward to the poll to see how well these outside-the-box things will be recieved by the voters...

    It's really interesting how many people are participating this week... Are artists really that narcissistic? For my part, I just had some spare time this week

    Oh, and the pics I used for ref. Not the best pics of me, haha.

    Cup of Tea: You needed help, so: about the composition, I think you didn't leave enough space around the figure, especially at the top right and bottom, so the placement doesn't seem enough thought out. You use too strong and too uniform outlines on the legs, and as far as I can see around the cape/hands also, which makes those parts look a bit flat, doesn't matter how well you shade it. The shading on the right and left leg below the knee looks almost like it's a bigger cylinder. The background dosen't really add to the picture more takes away from it, because it's clearly a little bit modifyed photo with a gradient behind it, it's too different in style. The face is nice, not exactly your face, but pretty close, and has character. You could try to use outlines that go inside the figure also, not just going around it, because only going around can make the forms look flat as well.
    Not that bad picture, now I should shut up and go to sleep.
