It puts less 'virtual paint' on your brush so you can do a lot more with subtle blends and small hue changes for added colour depth. I tend to put it as low as 20 to 30% and put my opacity on pressure sensitivity for that extra control in defining form in a subtle way.
Naunet (aka Nunet) - godess of watery abyss she's represented as a blue skinned snake-headed woman. Those poor ancient Egyptian folks obviously didn't know too much about high-tech diving equipment
Lineart and some messing around with basic shading and custom brushes

Pixeltuner, that's amazing! I can see the Predator influences in it, but it's quite nicely unique too.
Still running over ideas for Isis. I like the concept of the head dress and hanging cloth but the rest of the clothing looks a bit too much like something from a tacky goth clothing shop, pondering what could be used to make her seem a little more regal.
oki here is the result of my first little go at chow xD
i have chosen to do toth, quite a bit i want to sort out on him atm, but this was just for mapping out general features. on his staff that monkey nit looking shape near the top.. well its actually meant to be an hour glass, i think im gona fll it with like a acid green bubbling liguide, and have it looking like its filling the staff shaft. and his left hand is typing on a ultra flat screen floating monitor. wanna develop that abit more two. this is the first digital thing i have done without a reference, would love some comments on it as in where i need to improve.
Great and Good are rarely ever the same
what a cool theme... hehe.. I think I may have to enter this...
cool work so far peeps.
You can take the man out of the eighties but you can't take the eighties out of the man.
I love teh Egypts.
Aaah, what a fantastic topic! I've been meaning to join Chow for ages and if this isn't the perfect topic for me, I don't know what is. I do love ancient cultures!
And a question, I've asked this before but, does everyone use Photoshop exclusively for COWs/CHOWs/work, or do you use Painter as well, because I don't have Photoshop to use myself, I'm wondering if anyone uses Painter primarily. I've seen generally, Photoshop will always work better for clean concepts/illustration than Painter.
Update pg 1!
Ok, going to try and get some crits in.
Poshspice - love the design! and her feet are a nice touch.
Daestwen - again, love the design, and the idea of the lights as the stars. That last sketch with her looking adoringly at Earth is really cool. I hope you finish this one.
CKLamb - liking the sketches so far.
Missile - Like the sketch so far, the helmet is cool. Watch her breast area, if you can, get some pics of women's torsos and you should be able to fix that area from there.
Migsta - very cool sketch.
Pixeltuner - you improve evertime I see you on here, very cool Thoth.
pahavasa - very cool, I'm loving the design.
Cosmitron - cool sketch so far!
gtgauvin - really liking the design so far, keep pushing it!
baxter - I'm liking it so far, simple, but nice design and I like the little forked tail thing he has going for him.
Novbert -cool! Her left foot seems a little off, I'm not really sure whether it's crooked or not far back enough or something. It just seems just a little bit off.
Reymus - looks cool so far!
quick question, although I'm sure the answer is no. Can we do any ancient civilization's gods as aliens? The theory goes that not only were the Egyptian gods aliens but also ancient americans and hindu. I'm pretty sure the answer is egypt only.
