    Thanks, Tommoy...I'll revisit that hand, but I'm not sure I can figure out the damage either!

    Pheike: no problemo mate, your new wip looks a lot better, i suggest making the bg overall tone greener then his blue on his pants but otherwise its coming along very nicely!

    MJ_Alcazar: wow nice line work, cant wait for the colors

    dream_sear: holy heck i really love it, there's a few things i could suggest if you are close to finished. id remove the ab definition, it isn't ambiguous enough for me, too masculine. also maybe raise one eyebrow or something to add more allure to the expression... otherwise i think you're pretty close to being done, you're right


    curly: make sure you work more on your character as nice as the environment is, its a character of the week i like the idea alot though so stick at it

    darknight: thanks, glad you like the concept, i was worried i worked too many small ideas into it and it became diluted somewhat,,, but i always did admire the old fantasy illustrators who worked in small details you could discover when viewing the image the 100th time even

    scottmcd: you definitely should play the game, its made by the same guys who did oblivion, very great games studio! would be an honor working there!

    Franna: definately short hair!

    Tommoy: thanks for the tips, yeah i was aiming to have the food of our left on more of an angle, ill work on this for next post! and my girlfriend agrees the face needs more work... but im cautious to add too much detail as i wanted him to lack any real face (esp eyes as he is bling) and only left an impression of a furrowed brow to hint at whatever he may be writing at the time...

    will post another wip tonight thanks all, keep up the great work, not long now!

    Sleepy time for me.

    Thanks for the advice guys. It was unanimous... short hair it is.

    So, I did the socks, the choker and the bleeding heart... not much, I know, but it's getting there. Comments are most welcome. Tomorrow it's boots, hair, tattoo (maybe) and... colour!

    Oh yeah, and I'll take my turn at leaving my comments too.

    trying to fit in a BG, and I will see about adding something to make it pop more. mmmm, still needs refining, but I am going for that Japanese look with the BG.

    Original E my only crit is the placement of the sword.... the tip of the sword is causing my mind to take double looks in a very ummmm private area you might want to try a hip saber ..... looking good so far everybody. Hoping my piece is starting to get a little more personality to it.

    just started working on the colors... thought that for the bg, that perhaps the "tunnel of light" that one sees when they are dying might be a good idea.

    Not sure whether to also give her red body tattoos - the wiki description says the 1st 'version' of Despair had them. Hmmm

    Another really strong round of entries...crazy times!
    Looking good all.

    I really like it! Great light and proportions ^_-

    Franna,
    Sexy. I like the cloth design Though body anatomy could use some fixies

    spaztastic,
    I really like it a lot!Probably it's one of my favorites! Her face is magnificent.And the atmosphere is great.
    Some technical tips
    *Add the bright from the now into the sky - it reflects the sky usually
    *Some reflection of the girl at the stone could add
    *Add some blue at her skin tones
    *Straighten the stone
    *Build perspective for these chinese gates or whatever it is and build them accurately
    It's not much work after all - depite it looks like a long list Her face is amazing

    wheezy,
    Nice gothic girl - but for death,imho,it should be something special - kinda surrial - for now it lacks it for me

    KleeWyck,
    Great concept. Your use of colors is kinda poor - try to add other blues hues and mix more.
    Ramza,
    hehe - ugly despair!Love it. You don't need my advices for sure

    The Original [E],
    I like the character,but the colors need to be organized - now it seem kinda messy
    IIKII,
    Nice works! Death reminds me of Underworld
    threeeyesworm ,
    Looks like an interesting character,I'll wait to see the further progress

    So, tried to make the shadow a bit more interesting. The idea was to make the head of the Reaper pop out of the shadow but I fear this might be a bit to stark in contrast with the rest of the image.

    Hey Curly thank you, I will straighten the stone and the reflections, i was just messing around last night and made that bg so I need to tighten it up. especially the gate......looks like it's falling forward. will do with all the other stuff too/ i haven't forgotten any one else's crits. I just haven't had time to properly thank everyone, I have a one year old who detests me being on the computer so I haven't had much time to work on this pice properly or crit anyone elses work in depth. but thank you all so much. Great work every one.



    Original E. It looks much better now, and please do add the hip sword it's very a good technical idea and dammit swords FRICKEN ROCK!!!

    Hi guys...Im gonna comment backwards from here...

    @ KayOnim: I see what you're trying to do...the head does pop out, but you'll need to up the detail level in everything else so that you can avoid it being so obvious. that little girl creeps me out. @_@

    @ RichLyons: Solid gold babeh!

    @ threeeyesworm: Dunno why but at first glance it always hits me as an old sammurai. lloks good, but dont forget the 3/4s rule...you must show at least 3/4 of the character to make it to poll

    @ IIKII: Very cool death!!! really like her..tho careful with her perlvis..its skewed to our left... <_< to fix it, lead the seams of the shirt to the left to then be centered along with her pelvis...does that make sense? @_@

    @ The Original [E]: Very cool costume...I like the gun and the armor pads...but something seems off about the placement of the eye..cant say exactly waht..but overall this looks good.

    @ Ramza: Im REALLY diggin the cellulitic (is it even a word?) texture of her flesh...awesome!

    @ KleeWyck: I like the colors and the new pose you chose for her. the costume is pretty original too, but watch her venter of balance, she seems to be tipping backwards..might just be able to fix by riotating the figure a bit clockwise.

    @ wheezy: YOU CAN DO EET! eheh

    @ spaztastic: Well, I could have told you she was japanese just by looking at the figure make sure when youre done w the BG that you bring some of those bg colors to the figure to tie her in to the environment.

    @ Franna: That's androgynous as all get out...at first I didnt think it would work without a shirt (it leaves little doubt that its a guy) but when you scan the image you get the femminine face and the masculinish curvy body and it leaves doubts about the sex of the character...very well done!

    @ psantha: I like your take on the character...but that right hand bugs me a bit...its twisted a tad too much IMHO...but otherwise very cool.

    @ Razorleaf: Its a good start, cant wait for you to add mre character to it

    @ Gothique: That is one disturbing chick!!! love the idea of the hair cutting into her...dont know what it means but I like it!

    @ Dose: Either way, add some color to it! looks very relaxing to lay on a cushion of one's own hair

    @ dream_sear: Mother of mercy! your piece is looking fanfreakingtastic!!!! love it!

    @ NicHolS: Thanks! and might I add, the idea of the pen nib fingers is awesome. is his head made out of wax?

    @Darthmarsh & Pheike: Too right you are gents! thank you...but it's not a horse, its a goat, so I went ahead and made it smaller eheheh let me know if its looking better!

    here's an update on death on her fetid, decaying goat. I fixed some problems with the original sketch and turned to goat ever so slightly towards camera...hope to finish..time to speeeed paint @_@

    IIKII - great rendering, especially on the 2nd pic
    Franna - very clean! I had to do a double take
    psantha - chalk, mate... He looks freakin' rad!
    dose - reaaally dig the linework, would love to see the finished piece
    dream_sear - stunning detail, especially the hands
    NicHolS - shweet design
    Tommoy - awesome! Great details.
    Daestwen - great style. Will upload a bigger final for you.
    audit - love the design

    Some comments from my side. Don't take them too seriously...

    Ramza: Some serious fatness there! I would try and give the transition from face to chin a bit more definition. Stick some folds or double chins or something in there. But it looks good.

    KuGu: Excellent composition this. Can't wait to see what you do with the background (colourwise). Also, I'm glad I'm not her, look at where those horns are pointing.

    DecayingLolita: You have to finish Damnit! Make some time. The head feels a bit small, considering its roundish shape. Taller people usually have taller heads, i think.

    KayOnim: Very interesting, I especially love the little skull in the hair. I don't think the Grim-Head popping out works that well. I have an idea though, if you look at tall shadows like this, they usually have a gradient. They fade out as they get wider, if that makes any sense.

    RichLyons: One of my favourites so far. Is that A breastplate on a fat guy?
    And the bling, this guy is just so cool.

    Threeeyesworm: You obviously know by now that you have to expand your canvas, and I think in terms of composition that could help you as well, cos this should have an epic-style background.

    IIKII: Your death kinda looks like a GI-JOE, with her top kinda detached from her bottom. I would rotate the bottom. The face is cool though.

    The Original [E]: This is destruction 200 years from now. It really emphasizes the endless' immortality this. I hope you can come up with something to give it a little more atmosphere that it lacks.

    KleeWyck: I don't think that skintone works to maximum effect here. have you tried others?

    Wheezy: Can't really say anything at the mo. Would like to see more. Face looks like Bill Kaulitz, and I suspect you used him as reference, but i might be wrong.

    spaztastic: I would try some harder brushes on this piece. Also, maybe lower the horizon a little.

    psantha: The little bookmarks in the oversized books are awesome. Major events in history those. The strange hand gesture sort of confuses me when I'm looking at his face though.

    Razorleaf: Like the web idea. The character looks a bit too generic though (man in a robe. the end). Maybe put some glowy eyes in there, or something. Give it something personal and original.

    dose: That hair is just brilliant. You can do so much with color here. So many options. Can't wait.

    NicHols: Great. That character is just too well thought out. He looks like he's writing at a thousand miles per hour. Must be something important. Can't say anything except, he looks like he's about to fall off. Have you experimented with twisting the whole picture slightly clockwise?

    kurios: I would put something in there that makes it "Death". Cos tight now it's just a steampunk lady.

    agnostes: Great colours. Can't really spot anything off here. Good work.

    Pheike: What a crazy design! Why don't you cut off the sides a bit? Because you really don't need to be dealing with a background like that. Focus on the character.

    MJ Alcazar: Is your keyboard really doing that? Cool. That's a solid design. The hair on the right (her left) feels a bit big to me though. Gives her head a strange shape, if you know what I mean.

    dream sear: Those eyes are deadly. I am actually not that familiar with this particular style, so I can't really say much. The skin looks good, soft and almost translucent.

    Tommoy: Cool. He's so angry. I'm really interested in the figure in the back. What is that? Also, at that angle, maybe Dream's mouth should be a bit closer to his nose, and it looks a bit like he has no chin.

    Baxter: Destruction looks focused and deadly. Have you tried another eye colour? Like red or orange or something. Nothing wrong with the blue, just something I would look at, that's all.

    feifeicreate: Good stuff. The confident tranny looks very cool. We all really want to see this cleaned up. It's awesome.

    daestwen: That's true Androgeny there. I really don't know what that is, genderwise. Looks like it's drinking blood, yummy. Sorry if it's supposed to be wine. But isn't red wine more like the colour of the waistcoat? Would really like to see more.

    elliste: Would like to see where this goes. That sock is just crazy, in a good way of course. Also, are you outside-hosting your images? remember to use the attachment manager instead, in the final at least, otherwise you won't go to poll.

    Ronpower: this is awesome. Great pose and great linework. Really like your style. I would make her pendant an ankh though, instead of a cross. Just cause it's sort of death's constant trademark.

    audit: Looks good. Interstin lighting scheme. I think his one arm is a bit fatter than the other one, and the one that's pointing doesn't seem to have an elbow, or some sort of joint there. cool design, tough.

    Arthur 'Two Sheds': That's some scary stuff. The gasmask tattoo is the best. And his hair looks like pollution, but maybe that's just me. It's brilliant. That back hand looks tricky. Good luck.

    Man, I wish I could do everyone, but I need to finish my own too. Okay then, back to work. So long.
