Cherry- I get what you mean about height, I was originally going for half-human/half- elf, troll, or something, I'm leaning more towards half-elf/half-troll (though he looks 90 percent elf right now). So I think he'll have a little height, I'll just need to hunch him over a little or something. And on what you've posted, some nice posing (a bit to much super-hero/villian though, think of subtlety) While I understand he's an elf, you've got to add a bit more masculinity to him. Right now I am reading this as female for the most part. Also, think about the materials and clothing styles, fur, leather, etc. Good start, however, hopefully being away from digital will work out.
team- okay, enough jabber, finals for your first portrait on Friday (Cherry we'll help you get as close to possible to an end), post your compositional rough drafts asap. we'll all help each other over the week. If we fail to meet this deadline, it may very well be a death knell for the project. On that note, have a nice day.
