    I'm not sure where I'm going with this, or if I will get it done in time, but I was thinking of some sort of bath scene.

    Anyways, I think the bent knee is too high, but any other crits would be helpful.

    I used the pose of one of the reference paintings posted in the OP,
    it's not a paint over but I did use same idea of the lute.
    Wanted to see if this was okay? If not I'll delete it.

    i felt I was borrowing too much from Ingres so I had a friend come over and pose. Holy crap Ingres took sooo many liberties with anatomy in that painting!
    here's the revised underpainting

    Well looks like I've shot myself in the foot again : it's Thursday and Ive just started thinkin' about what I could do with this one... Anyway, I'll give it a shot still.

    I'm not much of a steampunk-fan so this might not be "new" to me but still a little foreign. That being said, I wanted to try and find an valid excuse to have steam-tech in the pic, not just decoration but something "important" like. Which is kinda hard given the fact that these are consorts (sorta leaves out weapons and armour and motorbikes and that sorta thing hehe).

    Alright so, this is might first run at a few sketches. I like the idea of the smoke (or "steam") dancer. Gota work on a pose that will workfit well with the idea though. I also like the mechanical peacock-feather wings idea, something extra to incorporate into the dance/seduction thing. Tried incorporating steam vents into the arabesc arcs as an architectural element. I like the idea, but let's face it : I'll have trouble finishing the character alone in any decent fasion so I don't know how far I can push this..

    Anyway, crits are always welcome, specially when I'm doin' something wrong !

    The arms are way too short but I am starting to like the hands, think I am going to make my husband pose for me tomorrow. Also looking forward to getting a good pic. when the sun comes out. Not suer if I want to paint digitally or literally, if I have time I will give both a go.

    @ deadhead16mb - Thank you for your CC, and......that picture of yours is amazing! I think you should be disqualified just for it`s sheer awesomeness, in attempt of preserving the egos of the rest of us.

    Mine for today. Taking it a step at the time, no rushing. I also hereby solemnly swear I will not post any more pic spam untill I`m finished and need help with final tweaks. Thank you and good night. (Well, actually, good morning, but...meh..)

    Rhen - Arms are a bit thin, and the hands are tiny in relation to the head. Not really seeing the steampunk part of the design yet (aside from a gear attached to his belt).

    Rambozo - Nice ideas. pick one and go go go!

    deadhead16mb - ...go on... -__-

    Nhil - hands seem small. I like the hair!

    a.k.a.Brady - Overall the figure's a bit elongated

    Some nice stuff, here! Really liking the progress

    PxelSlayer - you have a nice piece going, but watch out for things flattening out - her skin and the background seem to have the same shading/values. Picking a more focused light could help you make this look more 3 dimensional. You could also tone down the values on her and play up that strong backlight to make her more of a silhouette and give the environment some atmosphere.

    Rambozo - the upper left is the most compelling, I think, based on these thumbs, and mechanical peacock feathers could be cool. Careful about some of the anatomy.

    Rhen - MattB covered most of it, the head doesn't match the body, it all seems to get smaller/narrower/more elongated as he goes down. The head is really nice though, and looks to be based on reference - why not use reference for the rest of the anatomy?

    deadhead16mb - I like this repaint much more - yay for live models! But something about the size of her head in relation to the shortness of the arm and the large size of the hand seems off.

    Progress... it is slow going.
    More soon, I hope!

    PxelSlayer- no problem. if I get disqualified I'm blaming it all on you lol
    Matt_B- haha I fully intend too
    JessiBean- thanks, her head has been bugging me too so I changed it up. yours is looking fantastic as always, but as of now the fabric on her forearms looks kind of confusing, like it could be mistaken for a shadow.

    started painting the slave tonight. hopefully I'll finish tomorrow or early Saturday cuz I'm leaving for NYC on Sunday

    a.k.a.Brady: Yup, it's a bit too high. I also think the back arm seems to start lower than it should: maybe a straighter angle on the elbow would help. The rest looks really nice to me.

    Rambozo: I specially like the first sketch, it would be nice to see it get the feather treatment like the fourth one.

    deadhead16mb: I totally agree you're bad for the egos of the rest of us... And is it me, or her right shoulder is a bit too long? Dunno, I may be wrong.

    And come to think of it... maybe I've been guilty of picture spam. Sorry if that's the case: I'll hold it back a bit from now on

    Artofinca; they all have potential! For me, number 4 definitely is the most interesting.

    Diefinately 4 is the best, Artofinca I looove that perspective! 3 is also very nice, pose is great. But 4 is the most dynamic.

    deadhead16mb what a great painting! cant wait to see it finished!

    I made dramatic changes in my piece... proud steampunk sky captain is gone, now there is (i hope...) sexy proud steampunk harem slave in black and wihite i have a lot of fun this week with this chow

    Matjosh - You're not going to like this, but no complete robots this round. Certain elements like mechanical limbs etc yes, but the brief specifies boy or girl. Lovely sketch so maybe you can adapt it?

    Going with a comicbook style on this one as I have been experimenting with Manga Studio. Will colour this in Photoshop though.
    Some awesome entries guys, wish I could comment but I am swamped.

    Crackin' round people! I'm gonna do some redrawing/posing (with a layer on top of it or something like that) on mine to get the structure right again, because right now I'm just painting it dead without really knowing wat I'm doing. Hope to have an update soon and hope to finish in time
