    My timing: "Ill met by moonlight, proud Titania."

    Well, this Titania WIP is is ineligible because it was started prior to this weeks challenge, but I thought I'd get into the spirit of things and post nonetheless. A friend was used as reference for the face and pose.

    Great images so far; hopefully I'll be able join in the fun as well with a new entry!

    Damn girl... you go! LOL!

    Her costume is really great... only thing I notice is her right arm (on our left) looks a little short for the position its in.

    Okay, so here's my sketch, I think I found a ref that looks aristocratic enough but the composition is kinda boring I think?

    EDIT: ah screw it, I drew a new sketch to make it more interesting (and make it easier to draw ) but I kept the same hand positions.

    Awesome topic
    Here's what I have so far. Going for a Pre-Raphaelite/bohemian sort of erm.. look.

    I'll come back & do some crits later, too tired right now & probably won't make sense XD

    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.
    I like the second one better with her positioning and the expression on her face. If you changed some things I'm sure the first one would work too, but it's not my favorite.

    I personally liked your last piece, and I'm really loving this one so far. I have to say that there is something about your style that I really love. Best of luck to you!

    MJ Alcazar: I think there is something that's not quite right about the child's torso in your drawing. Other than that I love it.

    Hi all. Man, after looking at this stuff I feel waaaay behind. Awesome stuff.

    So, can anybody give me some input on this sketch? I'd like to get some bugs worked out before I start on the color bits, and I'd love people to point out problems.

    Posh, Trevor, Matt, all of you. You're all just.. sick. Looking great, guys. =)

    Man. I was thinking, "Oh man, I'm definitely entering this round" and then I flip through and see all of these amazing images. Ah well, I'll enter anyways.

    Can't wait to see some finished pieces from all of you crazy bastards.

    how do you pronounce Titania?

    It's been a while. whoah!

    Titania is pulling some fey influence into her, including satyrs and other woodland things. Her hair trails behind her like a writhing elemental mane. Forest dreads.

    The fairies in her entourage are somewhat fairy, somewhat gobliny, mostly strange. We'll see where it goes next.

    I originally drew her naked, then put some clothes on her. My girlfriend said she preferred her naked though. She might stay dressed for the final or not. Either way I'll keep it tasteful :]

    keep up the solid work everybody! wows.

    Does anybody mind making new posts as you go? As long as they're consolidated in the final burner I'm guessing that's ok? Thanks!

    Thats great Peter_john. I like the pose, the way you worked in the different elements of the woodland creatures, and the thick hair is great. Its inspiring me Cant wait to see it finished.

    Amaliax - are you working from any references? it just feels a bit flat right now. Actually, what is that on the left side of the page? The details in the cloths and shadows are great, id move more in that direction with this.

    Trevor: That's awesome. The skin texture is really nice, and the mood is coming together beautifully.

    Matt Dixon: Some magic is already happening. I like the character design a lot, and the colors are already beautiful.

    This seemed like such the perfect opportunity to really test my new style out and I like what I've come up with so far, got the original line art, as well as a quick color study thing. I'm liking Posh's stuff as well as JohnGrello

    amaliax:the perspective of the wings is not correct.and is not attached properly to the back of the character. i made a quick drawing to show what i mean, because my english is very bad and is very frustrating at this time of the night...(if this is too offenseive or invasive, tell me and i will remove the attachment) hope it helps.

    JOHNGRELLO:if you want to go in another direction still there is time...but i think you should finish the first one.i don't know exactly what, but the more advanced painting lost some of the feel of the drawing...the gesture of the body perhaps(level of shoulder and the change in the right foot)...maybe is just me(i need to sleep!)...anyway the figure is great and the composition is interesting.so i think you could finish it.

    great works so far everyone

    ok so in the spirit of improving my painting skillz (i have the color sense of a comatose mule), i'm trying the b&w to color approach. which i've never done. and i am trying to work it loosely and then tighten, instead of treating my painting like a coloring book and staying in the lines.
    i still have no clue what color scheme i'd like.

    here's what i have so far. i'm already kinda iffy about the technique, but i am also sick of not having a plan when it comes time to apply color. whadda yall think?

    amaliax, her left arm needs attention, upper arm too short, shoulder looks out of place and hand is too smal... good work though.

    JesushadanIpod. Is this "CHOW" thing getting out of control or is it just my deluded self ummmmm...... talking to myself? Fuckin' amazing the quality of work coming out of this thread these days.
    That being said, gonna throw my little hat into this three-ring circus and pray that someone gives me some good advice or an enormous boot in the ass to let me know what I'm doing wrong. Always appreciate that kind of torture. Besides, my past chows haven't been too successful and I could use the guidance.
    As for my advice to the far and many in between, keep on doing what you're doing and I apologize for not leaving individual comments at this time. To the usual bad asses here: Jessi-Bean, Matt Dixon, Pixeltuner, and the lot. Thanks for showing us how its done.
    And Humboldt Squid........Where you been man?
    I've decide to go with the origin of the queen Titania and her coup to usurp the throne and the allegiance of the faeries blah, blah, blah.

    & nah I did a few sketches before painting

    -----

    MJ_Alcazar: Good work so far, love the detailed costume. Her pose is slightly awkward though; she doesn't seem to be leaning properly on her right hand/arm, and it looks like she's about to fall over.

    Graphuji: Love the overall design, looks great. I think there's an anatomy problem somewhere but I can't quite figure it out. Perhaps her waist is a little too small?

    humboldt squid: Ooh I think I liked the other pose more, it was more dynamic, but it's still early days for this one, can't wait to see where you take it.

    hunchback: Great colour scheme. Some of the forms are a little hard to read though - especially with the material. The whole image looks a little too.. contrasted, if that makes sense? Adding more mid-tones would help define the forms. & yes to wings The pose she is in would look great with wings.

    amaliax: I like the style you're going for. The wings seem a little big though, not sure how they're attached to her body?

    Lammashta: Great start, interesting pose. Might want to watch the foreshortening though - her left leg is at an odd angle.

    peter_john Lol I'd like to know how to pronounce Titania too XD Very nice pic so far. Her fingers look a bit short though. Can't wait to see it coloured.

    Nightblue: Looking great so far. The upper body is good, but something about her legs makes the pose seem a little stiff.

    Wolfentir: Interesting style. Colours are looking quite nice as well. I'm not sure what direction you're aiming for, but perhaps try varying the line weight of the figure, currently she looks a little flat & is blending into the background (in the uncoloured version).

    daestwen: Nice sketch. Reminds me of the Pressed Fairies book. Can't wait to see where you take it.

    JOHNGRELLO: You should definitely finish this one. Looks great so far. Not too sure about the background though, the blue is a little too bright & is taking attention away from the figure.

    T_Turrill: Great start. Love the headdress/hair/thing. There doesn't seem to be a specific light source though?

    Im with you John, while i wasnt as far along as you, im starting over. There seems to be soo many things you can do with this that each time somone posts a new image i get new ideas.
    But i will try to talk you down, cause i love yours! But at the same time, id be very intersted to see what else you can come up with

    Tiffany - i really like it, the one thing that is bugging me is the purple, it makes it hard to see the art for what it is. But looks like its going to end up nice

    Getting colors in, jumping around still right now, not even sure what the hands and feet are going to be like yet. Ill have to take a look at the leg positioning, her left one seems fine, i can see that the right one is off.

    My fingers hurt!

    OK, so I've been here for a long time, but I rarely get very involved on here. At least "socially," you know "no critique, no likey." Hey, but it's a new year and I just discovered that I have a keyboard and not just a tablet which I'm also trying to get to know a lot better. I'm usually lurking in the deep dark shadows of my office oogling other people's amazing work when I probably should be working on mine more. But your all just so damn good! So I guess it's your (general you) fault I suck. But that's in the past. Enough "emoing out ."

    Posh Spice: Very cool! I like the old school Froud feel!

    Trevor: MAN I'M LOVIN' YOURS!!! BTW, If you'd be willing I would totally be interested in any tips on BW to Color method. I'll pay you in total admiration .

    Nutter: Lookin' good! You have to finish it!! I must see it finished!!!

    JOHNGRELLO: Dude! Your stuff is rad! I always like what you come up with.

    T_Turrill: You have some sick sketches! Don't feel to bad about improving on your painting/color skills, I'm in the same boat as you. I know once you start to get it though, you're going to be awesome! Keep it up!

    Matt Dixon: What can I say man... You are the DIXON! I always love your work. In fact I'm reading my Fantasy Artist's Bible right now! Hah

    Artofinca: I really like where you're going with it! Looking forward to seeing it finished.

    fersteger: Awesome colors! Reminds me of Klimt's work.

    ikuru: lookin' cool! uh er warm, That's a warm color scheme right? I'm so stupid .

    hunchback: I think it would benefit your piece if you toned down the spacing on your brushes. The strokes are looking repetitive (in a bad way) and I think they take away from the character. Other than that I think she's looking pretty good!

    Peter_John: Yours is in my top three faves so far. Rad concept! I can't wait to see it finished! I was kind of going for that feel myself. Now we'll have to see though.


    EVERYONE ELSE:
    I suck at typing and thus far I've probably spent an hour at least doing just that. So I am sorry that I did not comment on yours, but I may very well just do that in the future. And don't feel bad just because I didn't comment on yours, or anyone else didn't! Because you know what? It's not about getting comments, or even critiques, it's about getting better. And yah sometimes those comments, or critiques can help, but I will tell you from experience that the best way to get better is to just keep painting and just keep drawing. Be an artistic scientist and test out your theories everyday and when you run into problems, then find the the solutions to your problems and then make new hypotheses and test those and eventually you're going to kick butt! Anyone can be an artist, but a good artist never quites learning and improving on their skill. Keep it up guys!!!!!!


    With all that being said I kind of feel like a big schmuck for posting my barely mediocre art. But hey, I will anyway. Maybe someone will comment on it !

    No seriously though I was thinking.. Titania.. daughter of a Titan. OK so maybe she's like a giant and she's queen of the fairies so she's a woodland type character so here's what I got so far...



    ...Which I would be much farther along if I didn't have to do so much damned typing . How do some of you guys do this? Much respect!!! So I just realized how many ass-kissy emoticons I have and that's funny and thought I'd add one more for good measure, but then I thought better of it and decided to add this one .

    Some see the glass half full. Others see it half empty. I just try to see the glass!

    That's actually a really cool and original concept, Nate. I think it would be better to reign in those extreme proportions a little - they're making her look a little comical right now. Just scaling up the torso and legs so they're better balanced with the arms and head should do it.

    What's she doing? Right now her pose and expression are neutral, like she's waiting to have her photograph taken. Giving her even a simple action such as watching the birds circling her staff, or shielding her eyes from the sun as she surveys her realm would help to project a bit more personality.

    This could be a really sweet entry.
