    matt B Thanks! I think you could try adding some texture to your character, maybe even the background painting? Nice idea for your character too!

    jpedro. Yeah, I know what you mean I have already made the colour palette warmer for the final pic

    Danilo: I will definitely expirement with a similar technique for bringing some more natural texture at the end of the image too, thanks.
    Im not sure which season is which in your piece, perhaps you could try emphasising the symbology of the seasons more

    Dozeren I REALLY like the effect of adding those outlines to your painted figure. Really makes her pop out against the bg

    Also, thanks to everyone that have been giving my suggestions during this process. Some people have said that there isn't any real seasonal represntation in the design and THAT is because I haven't gotten around to adding it in... or thinking of it >.>

    Anyway, expect a similar treatment on the head to the left to be added to all the remaining bunnies (Including the WHOLE bunny in the middle).

    NOTE:

    Because a lot of clocks 'go back' this weekend, please use GMT as your deadline for submissions. So regardless of what time it is elsewhere check here to see what time it is in London:

    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

    So when it says 10 PM, 22.00 hours, that's the cut off on Monday.

    Thanks!

    Dozeren - really nice, the outilnes remind me to mucha... have you tried removing the inner lines from the swirls? (or making them softer?)
    Danilo - I like the detail that each one of them is looking at the next one, nice to see some traditional media among all this digital stuff
    walnut - thanks for the tips, I tried to follow them, I promise, but I'm not sure they very noticeable... I really like yours, perhaps you could add a bit more contrast to the dark areas?
    lkjhgfdsa - wow, amazing backgrounds!
    matt_B - Thanks for taking the time to comment on so many people, I don't think I have any crit for you, maybe some more leaves so that those forming his "underwear" look a bit less like a happy coincidence hehe... by the way, I liked your background texture so I tried to add something similar in mine
    Liv - looking good, I like what you did with the head, maybe the color tones are too cold to be summer...

    so I think this is it for this week, finally I moved the girl to the front of the image to make a better composition (and a smaller pic ;P) ...I'll let it cool down and I'll post it in the finals thread in a couple of hours...

    Elmasfeo: Thank you. I've made the lines inside the swirls softer. I Had been wondering about doing that, but you just helped me make a decision I'll submit it now.

    can anybody tell me: if I posted it in the finals thread but I wanna change something can I just edit the post and replace the attachment? Are there any rules against it. It's alright if I can't change it but if there are no "regulations" against it I would.

    Jason Snair That looks awesome. Nuff' said!

    Matt_B Cool character, looks like he could be a cousin of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Could maybe use more bark-like texture on the skin?

    Aspectabund Like the hair, is there any way to make the clothes more used-to-be-summer's looking? Good idea there, by the way.

    Cam Sykes Love the colours and textures.

    Liv Great take on summer! I'd love to see it in finished form.

    Autumn herself is done. But the background is driving me crazy, nothings looking quite right. I have to keep it pretty abstract coz I am a bad painter, and detailed line work is out at this stage. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Late to the party because we just got home from vacation, but I REALLY want to finish this one (fingers crossed!)

    So much awesome in this thread already! Love Posh's (of course), really excited to see Sentinel and Jason Snair's finshed pieces, too. (pleeeeeeease?!)

    It's not done, but it's as close as it's going to get, I think, since I'm supposed to be packing!

    did the drawing at 2100x3150 then scaled the final jpg at 600x900. The program that did the resize asked if I wanted a sharpening with the deal so I said yes. It definitely didn't had this sharp look when it was in photoshop. I kinda like it so I'm starting to consider sharpening as a tool to use.
    Question to any corel painter users out there:
    I did this painting in photoshop using the eraser and a single type of brush that I resized. Do you guys use painter like that? I tried all morning to find out the background/foreground switch shortcut in painter (it calls it "a divider"). Can anyone tell me the default key for it? I goggled it and didn't find anything, and painter doesn't have a search option so I obviously missed it in the midst of the other 100 shortcuts.

    Beautiful work in the finals thread, I was expecting a lot of Mucha-like drawings but everyone actually made their own interpretations of the seasons.

    I was away the whole weekend so I hope I'm in time to post my final! I enjoyed this round, it was a test for me to see how much I could get done in a short amount of time. In the end I spent around 3 hours on each drawing, and really enjoyed the painting.

    Jessi: Your's is coming out sweeeeet. I love the cropped little hair-do.

    Glad you like my piece so far. I like how it's coming out too and do want to finish it soon, but I just took on a short freelance assignment that has to come first. (I also want to tackle that Halloween monsters CHOW too_)
