    Think I'm pretty set on the design and comp now... probably gonna do one more line pass to refine everything and make it crisp... I wanna try the whole Black and white >>> color thing... never understood how people get such vibrant colors doing that... but if all else fails I'll just color pick the bastard to death

    Great images all around... it figures when I start doing ChOWs again all the talent bastards start popping outta the wood work!

    Cheers guys competition only makes us try harder!

    JOHNGRELLO - that black & white to color part...do you mean putting values in before coloring? It does make it easier. Nice wip btw.


    Anyway - here's where I am at the moment. Not entirely sure about the skin or what I should put in the background yet. Crits and suggestions are welcome.

    good start so far christoffer, liking some of the smaller detail you got going. quick tip for you, try not working with a pure white background, try a more mid tone, it'll make light and dark shading more accurate early on, and less colour adjustments later on. Also make your top and bottom borders longer, at the moment she looking slightly boxed in.

    I'll see what I can do about that. Thanks for the help. You seem to be doing mighty fine. Nice mood in your latest update.

    Her right foot would be sexier if it were pointing down a little more. The belts she is wearing are doing nothing for me.

    Trevor: Thundercats HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Sorry, your Queen just looks like one.


    Here's my new sketchy. I've redrawn the face so many times that at one time I was pretty much yelling at my Mac... Just having a bad day I guess.. or I just need to draw more heads n faces for exercise.

    Thanks for the nice comments. My Titania is done. I wait for the final burning thread to appear now, right?

    John Grello - Really liking your last update. My only comment would be that her costume seems feels like it's been borrowed from a Dungeons and Dragons adventurer ( I think it's all the pouches, belts and other dangly bits ) and doesn't project much of a 'queen' vibe. Perhaps that's just how she rolls though. Looking forward to seeing it progress!

    Trevor - Looking very cool. Groovy composition.

    Christoffer - Strange mismatches in her costume. The dress feels quite formal, yet those belts look very goth / street. Maybe repeat a single strong shape or motif throughout her outfit to give things a bit more rhythm? Not good practice to start painting your character up without knowing what you're doing in the background - if she's going to be in a scene of some kind that'll influence the colour and light falling across her and make it difficult for you to finalise the rendering on the figure, or cause you to rework it once the background goes in. It'd be a good idea to resolve that before going much further I think.

    Felida - I like the picture book feel of yours. I don't know if you're intending to keep that ink and wash look in the final, but it's a very promising start.

    Shaping up to be a great round!

    Hey Trev, I'd be curious to hear any tips you have on that technique as well. I tried it out last night and got some mixed, but promising results... Probably just need to play around with it more.

    Here's my update. Any and all comments/crits welcome... I got very emo after failing to get into the poll last time and want to make a good showing this time.

    Joey-b:nice work.you need to show the left leg(at least in shadows)

    Gothique:too early stage to make a comment but, i like the idea of a big scale titania.the tree like figure is nice.

    Poshspice:great figures! yes the left one is more interesting.the experiment with colours is very good.the theme could benefit from such loose aproach(a more ethereal look i guess) waiting for the final!

    Espenboi:nice aproach.a diferent kind of fairy.

    FerrousJack:
    good movement on the background figures.not to sure about Titania legs,though(specially the right...i think prevents the movement instead of pushing forward) update is looking very good

    ticktocker:nice figure.the feet lokks a bit bigger than should be in relation to the rest of the body.

    amaliax:is nice. a more queen look.

    trevor:i like the mood of the piece.and the colours are working very well since the first stage.

    Tipa:nice movement. the head is too small

    dirkvandulmen:a diferent aproach on the character.nice

    pixeltuner:very nice character. i like the face and the design.the right arm is a bit short and the legs are a bit long in my opinion.waiting for the final. edit:rework is much better. very good

    masque:very interesting. i like the design and the minimalist aproach

    Novbert:
    nice figure, i think the head need more volume to the top and back part

    Graphuji:the mask could be a good design part if it shows some kind of "personality" right now is a bit blank. i don't know, i think in this topic the face is important in a way. but is just my opinion.

    Monika Gruzka:nice idea about the tree roots.keep an eye on the breast form and the light source.

    Tatiana:i like the face on the first one but i like the body and gesture of the second

    hunchback:i like the figure gesture.draw the feet to know exactly how tall she is and how would be the stand of the character(later on could be a really trouble) the expression of the face is very nice.

    physicalpariah:keep an eye on the proportions.also the upper body its seems to be not cprrectly attached to the hips.nice idea with image.

    Nutter:very nice work.she looks for sure diferent.im wonder if she can be reader as a fairy with that kind of winds?(i don't have a clue about fantastical creatures)

    blackrobin:nice image.i like the face.keep it up

    shannanigan:nice take on the subject. nice idea

    Nightblue:good work so far.i think her left hand is a bit small.

    Baxter-e:i like your idea of a more hybrid fairy.the body looks a bit short

    JOHNGRELLO:great work.love the figure.(the second one is very good too,but i really like the feel of the first one) im trying to work is greyscale to add colour later too...im not doing good so far

    T Turill:nice sketches so far.the one with the arms above of the head is very good...very nice expression.

    3vil:very nice. the thing with the gesture is what she is doing...is pointing for anything in particular?she is giving an order to someone? there is a reason for she been on the right of the image leaving so much negative space? just a grain of salt

    Matt Dixon:love the composition and colours. very good

    LA-Fairy:i think that working in small scale could hekp you to visualize those proportions problems and fix it. draw severl thumbs to see which one portrait your idea in the best way.then you could take the small sketch ans scale it to the final size, then painting on top.

    Artofinca:nice Titania.it looks more creature.nice work

    fersteger:i like the feel and the coulours pallete. maybe add somenthing to show she is a fairy and not a regular lady? i don't know. good work so far.

    Felida:i like it. i think the colours work fine(the cat seems a bit lost with Titania,though) nice design on the character.

    grenogs:i like the scene.more variation in the colours? the background could be less darker in the inferior part i think(or maybe a more sorter transition?)

    Christoffer:nice costume.the neck is abit rigid i think

    Windsrock:the body seems to be a bit thin...it looks almost plane.i like the face.

    Ikuru:nice start.the creatures behind are very nice.

    WunderDark:nice design and details.not too sure if she reads as a female(im not saying that she needs to be a model or a beauty)specially since you made her very thin almost like a skeleton...of course this is is just my opinion.

    ok i think i get all the entries.

    Thumbs up

    Joey-b: I like her wings and the background you're developing. Her balance seems slightly off tho.

    Posh Spice: I like the pose in the first sketch better, but I like the idea of the finger twigs too.
    The textured sketch reminds me a lot of Arthur Rackham.

    Espenboi: Love the sci-fi slant.

    Felida: Well-done ornate costume. I like the scene you've created, it tells a story by itself.

    Artofinca: Cannibal fairy, nice. For some reason, her expression evokes sympathy... obviously contrasts with her actions.... could work!

    Trevor: I like the style and atmospherics. At this point it feels like the environment is getting more attention that she is. Can't wait to see her fleshed out more.

    Nutter: Silky smooth!

    T-Turrill: Love the sketches. You do great faces.

    Fersteger: I like this, even tho it is really rough at this point it feels like a John William Waterhouse
    painting (can't believe I remembered that name). Very intimate scene and nice comp. Foreground might distract from the
    character design however.

    JOHNGRELLO: Love where it is going, but I really prefered her right hand in your first sketch. Other
    than that, nothing.

    Sorry couldn't get everybody, gotta go back to my hovel! Will try later.

    Rough tone & hue application. The scratchy paint job gives me plenty of variety for the next, more painterly, steps.

    I did an Open Figure Drawing Workshop master copy last year that is a strong influence here, I'm trying for that same sense of casual and un-selfconscious voluptuousness.

    Face is in need of rework, too tight, but it's a start.

    FerrousJack: I totally agree it worked in that sketch... but it just didn't work in the comp.

    DIMAGYAN: Yeah I'm not sure how people do it... but if I can figure it out I think I would have a faster way to color stuff

    Matt Dixon: Argghh! I agree... to an extent... I was thinking a wandering queen... just cause you rule over something... doesn't make you royalty

    Okay, throwin mine in. Got notes that i needed to work on rendering out better, so thats the goal on this one.
    Working on a couple ideas here, still havent realized what she should look like or who she should be.
    I also need to work on the composition in general.

    Final design Sketch... with no idea what the background will be.
    I might do a Mucha on it with a fancy deco border or something.
    Of course that didn't help my Knight get any fans... so we'll see....
