    Auspiciouspanda: I really like the dynamic pose he has, it's awesome. Not sure if it's intentional, but the nose looks a little off-center with the teeth and the lighting on the snout.

    Anyways, small update, still haven't settled on an eye colour yet.

    Kinnaree- You're doing some nice work on that piece, the pose conveys a lot of drama, but (if that is supposed to be the Phantom of the Opera) you're supposed to stick with the gender of the original. Might want to consider that.

    I started painting the forms...and then messed around a little. Here's the Japanese International poster versions. I'm pretty sure the translator butchered the title.

    Some feedback on mine would be appreciated. (previous page)

    Adam Schumpert - I like the sketch and the idea's really cool. Where are his legs right now? They're either tiny, missing, or in a hole. Might want to pose it out in front of a mirror so you can nail it down.

    Jason Snair - So far I'm liking the colors on the left the best, although the one on the right isn't shabby either.

    Adam and Jason Love it

    Ladies and gentlemen...I'm proud to present, the (concept of) Frankenstein and his Bride of the 21st century. What if they lived now, would they still be monsters or would they be part of 'us'?

    For what it's worth I'd leave the background for now, decide on a definite primary lightsource (top-left looks best right now) and focus on painting-in light and shadow on the folds of the robe. Cloth is always hard to do convincingly imo, but you seem to be going in the right direction already. Then work in a secondary lightsource (bottom-right would work well - use a constrasting cold colour, don't be too heavy-handed with it) for backlight/rim-lighting. Hope that helps!

    Edit - pretty-much what you've already done with the face, which is looking nice, by the way

    well i saw this a lil late, but what a great topic. diggin what i'm seeing so far too. can't wait to see all the finished ones.

    sorry for another bride. love the idea of making a beautiful monster though, so this is what we get. she's a lil too feminine right now, not enough monster, but i'll get it.

    Lookin good barata, bluefootedand jbellio!



    lolz, I do far too few of these chow things.

    anyway, I've always thought that The Hunchback of Notre Dame would be a fitting name for a cage fighter.

    I think the upper half of his torso is kind of static, which is holding the image back. Just cover up his legs with a sheet of paper, you'll see what I mean - his torso is straight up and down as though he was standing rigidly, while his legs have a great active pose. It's just that the movement of the lower half of the image isn't matched by the upper half, which (just my opinion here) makes it look a bit flat and uninteresting. At the very least, it'd be good to see a bit of a curve and twist in his spine and upper torso as the big doodad on his shoulder is probably fairly heavy

    Wow so many nice characters
    My first take on Dracula ended up becoming some kind of evil pope.
    Well well , I’ll give it a new try tomorrow.
    Think I stick with the old Count anyway. or maybe the hunchback his an awesome character too

    Hi, everybody!!! Here's some sketches for my take on the good old Wolf man... But I'm not sure if I should keep walking this path, since it looks more like a creature than it does a character. What do you think? Would it be acceptable?

    Just another quick idea for the bride from class yesterday. The idea was that her clothing is made of skin and sewed onto her. Right now though it doesn't really read that way so I'll have to figure out how to work that out if I go with this one.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    gerezon: Thank you for the warm welcome! You're right, I took better reference and I think the anatomy is a lot stronger already, thanks for the help
    Undeadartist: I think you're right, especially to make him seem more 'monstrous', maybe also to heighten the beauty/beast parallel more.
    I adjusted the poses, trying to make the monster look more scary and agressive but also softening the bride up. I put in some base values, but I'm looking forward to messing around more with both of their designs tomorrow since it's so late here...
    I am loving everyone else's so far, there is some stiff competition going on! Sorry I don't have much time to crit right now, but hopefully I'll update in a little bit.

    Will go for a more fantasy-oriented version [with lots of unnecessary details, hopefully] of Dracula. I tried doing some of the other monsters, but Dracula just attracts me most. Will probably just color it digitally, drawing with a mouse isn't a happy experience... I'm open for critics and suggestions.
