    maria riaz thanks a lot i figure painting is the only i can ever get out of this forsaken country i live in so i'm trying my level best become as good at it as possibly can it's a shame i have to work 10 hours a day, so much wasted time

    i've wanted to do something VERY sci-fi for quite a while now, so when i found the beyond the frontier contest i was like, "HELL YEAH". So the topic is unkown moons & 've been thinking about what i wanna do for it for the past two weeks or so and i finally decided to do an image of someone in a small space craft or "travel pod" these are one man space pods that people use to travel between moons,planets and ships over short distances in protected areas, they're lightweight and built for the speed so they have no weapons. The ship itself is a half circle "spine" with a shield around it, i can't find a better way to explain i think the initial draft sketch below should help i thought about designing a spacesuit & whatnot for the character but i figure if people actually lived on or between these moons/planets they wouldn't really need space suits cause the ships would already be protection enough. Then again it might be a little boring to have her dressed in civilian clothers, i thought about making her a space pirate but i'm still not decided yet.

    i wanted a sort of reclining chair in the ship, like a barber chair but this one looks small & uncomfortable. Now i'm thinking of removing it & replacing it with a slightly big cushiony-roundish one, then getting rid of the controls at the top and putting them on the chair.

    Usually i spend too cuch time plotting & desgning things when i'm doing model sheets, up to 10 days. i'm hoping to be done wth this by the weekend so any help & suggestions will be really welcome

    Hi. Thanks for the visit to my sketchbook.

    Some good stuff in here... the one thing I'm seeing that's kind of like fingernails on a chalkboard is the line quality.

    I've just begun reading Mattesi's book on gesture... and he describes the back and forth style of line as indecisive. I think that's a good way to put it. If lines go every which way, they don't have a purpose and they lose their power.

    Anywho... just a little crit. Keep working.
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    p sage thanks for coming through spot on about the indesisive lines, i don't exactly have a technique yet. i'll try to work on that

    change of plans, yesterday i found out about the twisted fairytales contest so i'm putting the travel pod design on hold cause there's only eight days to the deadline for this one, i decided to do Anastasia. The plot: After killing resputin everything in the kingdom was hunky-dory, Anastasia & Dimitri got married & lived happily ever...........but not for long. What they didn't know was that when they broke the vile of evil spirits that gave resputin his pover, they realeased the onto the castle grounds & they never left. in time Anastasia & Dimitri grew tired of eachother, they would argue all the time over nothing and finally that love they once had turned into hate. Anastasia deecides she would rather strike first than risk getting killed by him. Still work in progress but i like it so far

    i want it to look like she shot him once & he was trying to crawl away, she follows, pins him on the stairs & shoots him again. i realised last night that i spend too much time trying to refine things even in the early stages, i tried to look up some refernce pictures but the closest i could find to what i had in mind was this Arr_15 i then spent the one & a half hours trying to get the two of them in the right positions & i still haven't managed. i need to get a refence of the inside of a castle for the background beyond the stairs, if anyone's got some links i would really appreciate your help.

    i decided to make a list of the advice i've been given & need to keep in mind as i work on this

    1. determine the light source early on & be aware that some body parts are further away from the light source & therefore will have a different shading
    2. work on the image as a whole, intead of parts (now thats gonna be hard, no layer masks for this one)
    3. avoid soft brushes (eeek)
    4. vary the amount of rendering (keep the details to the major focal points of the painting)
    5 do not use white for highlights
    5. try using purple as a base for shadows & less pure black values
    6. do not make single strands of hair (waste oftime)

    alrighty then, here it is

    Great progress Miycko. Would love to see you do some master work studies and post it.

    Try adding more items/furniture to the scenes. It currently feels empty save for the bed.
