    Hey guys, it's my first time doing CHOW, daestwen recommended it to me. I just have a couple of initial sketches - I did more but these are the ones that turned out the best.

    @dashinvaine : sort those feet out before you start colouring - add a bit more paper (digitally). It'll drag it down if you don't

    So many nice entries
    Been 2 weeks since I havent done something decent, so I'll give a try on this CHOW.
    Firstly I thought of a skinny, tall, a bit old lady, but finally I decided to do something a bit nicer. So here it is for the moment.
    Critics and comments are welcomed, I think adding some details, items maybe on her, dont know yet, I'll try. and of course other things too ^^

    Reymus - You have a great start. Her bottom half seems to be a little off. I believe you would see part of her right foot to the right of her left leg. I don’t think she has quite enough “junk in her trunk”. The left forearm is a bit too long and her shoulder not quite developed enough. Also her left boob is too big (it’s coming to get me!). I get the feeling her face should be a bit wider so it doesn’t get lost in the awesome mountain of hair you have going there. I hope you don’t think I’m picking on you, because I think your drawing is going to be really neat when it’s done. Keep up the good work!

    Adam - You have so many great things going on with this piece. I just have to say that her legs are really bothering me. Your character is this really strong Amazonian warrior and yet her legs and feet are these delicate little things. I have great admiration for your work so I hope that it’s not too upsetting when I say: OMG you gave Wonder Woman Barbie legs! She’s a power house, so give her some stronger legs! Also for the woman on the right: her torso is a bit small.

    Disclaimer: It should be noted that my neck is really sore right now and I'm bored at work. It should further be known that I've had to look at the smilie spanking that other smilies's huge butt the whole I was composing this text. Therefore any comments I may have made, real or imagined, may be incorrect and therefore completely ignored. If I have caused offence in any of my statements please note that my (female) cat Tobias is currently taking all the blame. Thank you for your support and understanding in this matter.

    zoemaxine: I somehow like the style of these sketches, creepy faces!
    Kristo Novo: I like how the faces looks like now, but her proportions seem to be a little off.
    dashinvaine: I like her design. Her feet and legs however don't look quite right now. Get some reference and a dd a little more anatomy.

    Err... yeah. Although I don't have any time for this, and I didn't want to participate... I youldn't resist oO

    Ah... yeah I planned to make her dress consist of crows o__o dunno if I can draw that. Goodbye comfort zones hahahaha


    !Edit:

    Uärghs... I don't know if I reaaaally want to paint this! It looks creepy and like a lot of work to do...

    daestwen - Thank you very much! I did stand like that and took a photo of myself, and you were right (of course)! It was very uncomfortable and i was loosing my balance..

    I really hope i solved the anatomy problem so i can start painting this!

    I didn't quite understand what you meant by funky shoulders, but i hope i solved it

    dumdadum, trying something different again. I find it good practice to do a 'piece' an evening, not sticking too much to first ideas and generally get a lot of different work done

    Time is tight but I hope I can finish this on time. After many sketches I have arrived at this. I want to give her a real sense of dark power mixed with beauty.

    jspangler: I think your composition is a bit dull so far: the figure in the center, the view dead on. If the viewpoint was a bit below her looking up she'd look a lot more intimidating.


    A quick concept. I'm going with the 'old crone' version for a change. I still need to put a lot more work into her robe and the raven wings that are barely visible now. I was going to put her in a forest of swords, but I think I'm keeping the foreground as it and adding fires in the background. And don't pay attention to the hand

    DefiledVisions: Nooees - I liked the other one - had a 'dead marshes' feel to it. At least bring back the flute (as longs as its made from a femur

    Skorpi: It's a little over to the left a bit, you might want to extend your canvas top and bottom and that way can beef up the spear (it's a little plain)
    You could drop some saturation on the skin, make her pale perhaps.

    My very basic initial sketch which I'm developing now.

    CHOW 182 :: The MORRIGAN

    Hope I manage to get this finished between work. Loving the topic, shame I couldn’t get in on the last one!

    Some comments:

    SCF: Like the colours. Really like her face so far too. Interesting scene too with the sword in the foreground.

    Skorpi: I like the pose you’re going for and I like her face. Somethings not working for me though, I think maybe the skin is too bright for the overall colour scheme of the scene? I’m not really sure :/ I also like the sky with the crows.

    Gerezon: nice start, love her expression!

    Pixeltuner: Like the dark gothic feel to your latest version. Though I really like the previous ones too.

    AvisNocturna: Great composition and detail in your initial sketch. Looking forward to see it developed!

    Mark Tarrisse: I like your choice of colours. I think she looks rather sombre though rather than evil war goddess. Interesting change though.

    Kristo Novo: In your latest post I think the bottom half of her body looks wrong. I think you should position the legs slightly differently to make the pose look more natural. The pose in your previous pose worked better.

    Adam Schumpert: Great scene. I think you’ve captured her well.

    Nutter: haha I see what you mean about Kiss! She looks cool though, very gothic!

    Pxelslayer: Love it! The wings are great. Can’t wait to see her finished!

    Defiledvisions: Nice start. I like both sketches. I think combining elements of each would work well. The figure in one is good and I like the scene in the second.

    Fersteger: Like how the scene’s developing. It’s got a dark eerie feel to it.

    MisterE: Really like your third design with her hand outstretched and crows in the background.

    Venger: Looks great! I like how you’ve combined both pieces into one big one.

    Matt_B: Love your beginning sketches, especially the one of her with the dying soldier and crow.

    Poshspice: Really like the third design which you're developing, definately the strongest one.

    Tommoy: Nice beginning. She looks sexy and eerie at the same time!

    Feedback time .

    SCF - It's early, but make sure to show more of the figure than her covered by a sword.

    Gerezon - Her pose is a bit awkward, you could go for more lanky, bring her and bent up and wrist bent down, unless she's clutching her dress, which makes my point moot.

    Avis Nocturna - Great sketch, for the dress of ravens, you could always make a raven scatter brush and shortcut that way.

    Update on mine, sorting out lighting, sitting on a crop of rock. Dani Duck, the boob is out to get you! the left one is out while the right is covered, maybe that's why it looked bigger. I'm 75% sure to cut out those birds on her hair and just do feathers unless someone can help with placement.

    @ Reymus - Those wings in her hair could be used as a crown or head ornament. Maybe changing the position, IE the angle of them? As in, tilted forward or backward, or making it look as if it`s following the contour of her head( I`m really in lack of words here, but I hope you know what I mean). And also, if you think about it - why just one pair? And in one size? Eh?

    Will CC as soon as I catch some shut eye. Night, folks!

    I'm sorry.... double post again. meant to edit my first post... okay, I might as well do something useful with this:

    Mark Tarrisse: I like her pose and the mood of the picture right now... only her nose bothers me a bitt, but I think that will be gone when you add some more colour to it.,
    pixeltuner: I actually liked your first idea.. but you can never do enough
    gerezon: I like what you did with her hair. Maybe get some reference for her head, the features don't look quite right now.
    jspangler: Nice pose. Watch her arms, they're a bit thin right now and not quite attached to the body.
    defiled visions: I'm excited what you'll gonna do with this
    skorpi: I like the raven cape idea a lot.
    SCF: nice idea with that composition!
    blackcherry: the pose looks very cool, nice heroic angle! and thanks for the comment
    Kristo Novo: Ah, I like the idea with the raven behind her... Try some more
    Reymus: Well, that's an idea.. thank you! I like your sketch so far, the wings look pretty cool... Maybe add some darker areas at the bottom of the picture?

    I needed to go to bed some hours ago D:

    Liking all the sketches and stufff in this thread, particularily Pixeltuners, will try to get some more detailed feedback tommorow, tired, need sleep.

    But here's my interpretation, the Morrigan, incorporating the oncoming ravens to a field of battle (with Cu Cucain down there tied to the rock) and the triumvirae of the maiden, the mother and the crone.

    Feedback very much appreciated!

    Thanks.
