    Artina: I really love this! It looks fantastic! I do think that her facial expression is a little.... blank right now. - and I think it might be the placement of her right eyebrow (our left) that's making it seem that way (If you cover up half her face, the left half has a lot of expression and the right half just looks bland.) I don't think it needs to be a huge adjustment... but yeah.

    Gerezon: Looking good! I like the one without magic better, in terms of design, simply because in the original, I did not get the impression of the magic controlling the ravens. However! I do like the concept of the magic one much better and I think if you could somehow make a correlation between the magic in her hands and then string the magic through the feathers or in the eyes or talons or something, you could convey that same idea but use less "magic" in the actual image.

    first rough

    It's been a while since I've had the time to post anything, and it's a bit late to start this one with much hope of finishing on time...but better late than never. This is called my first rough, but I've tightened it a bit.CHOW 182 :: The MORRIGAN

    Previous design didn't feel sufficiently crone-esque. Testing some "dress" made of blood ideas to tie into the battle theme.

    Aand another one, and I'll probably stick with this one as well. It has got elements of all previous ones. But maybe I'll change my mind tomorrow :p
    Anyhoot, there are some issues with the foreshortening of the right arm I think and some weird stuff going on in the face, but I'll look at that tomorrow with a fresh pair of eyes

    Avis Nocturna: Love the pose, mood and composition but check the left arm indeed.
    Mark Tarisse: F**n love this one. The texture on the hair and dress is fab Don't change the expression, she looks like she mourns all the soldiers that died throughout the ages.

    @ Westoon - I love your sketch! The guys are, like, "unghn...bff...bleeding...argh...", and she`s, like, "Birdie!" XD Really hope you can finish it in time.

    You know, people, there`s something I have to get off my chest. For a long time I thought that a degree in something ment you are qualified to do it. But ever since I joined CA, I`ve been proven wrong every single day! Those who don`t know (OMG, you don`t know that? Shame on you! ), I study fashion design and I thought that only those who studied were able to pull off a nice looking piece of clothing, both inventive and aesthetical. And, as I said...I was wrong. Most of pieces shown here have such amazing potential to become some of the BEST costumes ever made, and you people could work as costumographers w/o giving it a single thought. And, to top it all off - you`d probably be some of the best in the business. You people all deserve a

    K, `nuff sweet talk `n`other emotional stuff, am not gonna get sobby, I`m a tough guy. In other news - what does a girl need to do when strolling down the battlefield? Well - ACCESSORIZE, of corse!

    EDIT - pretty much done. Might give it a tweak or two this weekend, but this should be it.

    colour sketch

    here's my first pass at the colours...not sure how I want to treat the Morrigan, I want her bright, amid the relative drabness of the rest of the scene, but right now she looks like a statue...complete with perching bird.CHOW 182 :: The MORRIGAN

    First attempt on the Morrigan. Just working on her style : a mix of raven feathers, bones and celtic ornaments.

    Lot of great beginings (and almost finished works ) on this topic.

    Mark Tarisse : Great work on color tones and attitude (but she looks too sad to brandish a sword )
    PixelTuner : I appreciate your work and your research on the charatcer. 'Like the last pose.
    PxelSlayer : Your concept looks great and your work on the lights promising.
    Daestwen, AvisNocturna : Cool concepts. 'wanna see the next step!
    JessiBean : Your start is fantastic (and you were already said about the proportion of her fist ).
    Dwinbotp : I liked your presentation of Cù Chulainn. I want to see your interpretation of the three Morrigan now
    Adam Schumpert : Your design sticks to the legend of the shapeshifter. I Like it!
    Nutter : Cool attitude : especially her piercing eyes.
    Poshspice : You chose the best concept you've done on the Morrigan. And the environment with dolmens on the background looks perfect.

    Awesome work folks. Will hopefully be able to go through and comment later.

    Might actually get this done. We'll see. Might transfer to watercolor paper and paint. Who knows? Not a huge fan of digital painting...mostly because I'm not very good at it yet.

    Alright update. I'm thinking I'll leave it alone at this point unless someone points out a glaring mistake.
    Pixeltuner: I really like the one you settled on.
    Mark Tarrisse: you style is sweet! I want to reach out and touch her but I keep hitting my screen.
    westoon: maybe if you darken the value of the colours around her she'll glow without the halo. I did a quick multiply layer with a gray to show what I mean.
    JessiBean: Beautiful as always.
    Thanks everyone who commented earlier.

    Rhen - Nice to know someone else is using Painter for Chow it's really underutilized. Make sure to play around with the papers as well.

    Mark Tarisse
    - Your dress is what I wanted my pieces hair to be, alas . Beautiful though.

    Gerezon
    - No, I don't think you need the magic to emphasize her control, having a couple of more ravens around her would do just as well.

    Update on mine, pardon the rough, still struggling with the color.

    great work so far! im pretty new to this site but i can still tell this is one of the most popular chows.
    pxlslayer: great mood you got there
    pixeltuner: really like your last one! mines partly inspired from that
    artina: looks tite
    avisnocturna: nice color scheme!
    mark tarrisse: my fav so far
    i was doin some pose exploration when this popped in my head. was gonna stop at the sketch but i just had to color it before i went to bed (even though i really need the sleep). i really surprised myself with how well its going so far, especially since i havent drawn people that much (and with no ref :] ...at least for morrigan)
    really hope i can finish this in time...blasted college applications!
    let me know what you think before i go any farther

    Wow, I'm seeing a lot of really good, otherworldly pieces out there, and I'm loving it! So thanks and encouragement to Nutter, Artina, Liv, and Quinn Simoe especially, for their mysterious and emotionally confusing (not sure whether to be attracted or terrified, which is *exactly* what I feel the Morrigan should be like!) pieces, and also a big thank you to LadyLooLauren, for your encouraging comment. I hope to do a big wodge of work on it tonight, and maybe tomorrow night also, so with a bit of luck, we'll see another WIP tonight or tomorrow morning!

    Anyway, I'm loving all the concepts that have been coming up so far, and hoping my piece a) gets finished, and b) can compete with all these brilliant illustrations!

    Let's go with more crits

    KZ: Beware of the CHOW rule with your morrigan not showing much of her face you might get cut, the tatoos and colot choice work well though.
    BRUSS: work on light can give a lot to this composition, color and mood are nice
    QUINN SIMOES: Very moody and impressive, smooth and sharp , the feather rendering is stunning so far, waow.
    CROWSROCK: the thumbnail is quite small, her left hand is a bit weird for now.
    LANCER IDENOURE: composition is nice work on values and color contrast to emphasize on the important parts of your design.
    REYMUS: nice design but her forearms are too long and her left leg too, the wings are very nice though.
    OURSIN: her forearms are too long, watch out the anatomy, her left leg joint with main body is strange too.
    KAILAAN: As i said before, very nice composition and costume, love it.
    OMIZU: Interesting and colorfull, waiting to see more.
    MITZE: i love the upper part, what bugs me is her legs maybe, i don't know their position feels a bit stiff for someone levitating maybe...in love with the sky and mood.
    FREDDY SCRIBBBLES: interesting lineart, it can become awesome.
    RHEN: no crit to give for now, i like the sketchy way of painting.
    WESTOON: I love your lines drawing technique and color, wonderfull.
    DAESTWEN: maybe her hair is floating too much compared to her feather, or maybe it is levitating on it's own, composition is good and anatomy flawless.
    PXELSLAYER: you shouldn't get sobby you're a great artist, your morigan is awesome.
    PIXELSLAYER: very nice concept for the crow hair, keep it up.

    that's all for now

    updated wip.

    Missile I like the third one
    Pixeltuner It looks really good, I like the fair eyes.
    PxelSlayer She's looking really like a goddess.
    daestwen Nice Tatoos
    westoon Maybe she looks a bit like a statue, because shes posing like one.
    napalm Nice design, I like these fethers on the shoulders.
    Rhen Interesting apinting style, looks good so far. I thik you have to add some more leg tu funfil chow rules.
    Freddy Scribbles Interesting sketch, I'm looking forward our result.
    Mitze I realy like your color sheme.
    omizu You still have a lot of time Nice start
    Kailaan I like her pose and how the mask hide her eyes
    OurSin Li like your colors. Nice start, but take a closer look on the proportion.
    Reymus I love those Raven wings, looks really cool.
    lancer_idenoure I like your composition
    Quinn Simoes I love thouse glooming eyes
    B-Russ I like your composition
    k_z Interesting colors and composition

    Wow there are so many!

    I thought I should at least try to do some crits, although I hardly feel worthy, still it seems like the right thing to do.

    Desero: Nice pencil work.
    Adam Schumpert: Wow awsome layout, I like how you got the totem animals in there.
    Nutter: Holy crap, those eyes are freakin me out. One of my fav's.
    AvisNocturna: Great concept, it really seems to be animated.
    Pixeltuner: Wow you are prolific, I really like your latest.
    oddy: I like the angle and foreshortening you did for the character, my only crit would be that the lips seem a bit misplaced, maybe a bit low on her face.
    JaderGader: looks good, but maybe soften the furrows along the cheek?
    artina: Awsome, the hair and feathers are so cool! You could pop the skin highlights a bit more, or not.
    Itze Rycost: I like the concept, it looks like you are going for a bit anime style? The neck seems a bit too long and I think her right arm (not holding the skull) is also a bit long.
    Mark Tarrisse: Nice job, I like how you did the feathers.
    westoon: She looks ghosty which I think is appropriate for the phantom queen.

    Sorry I missed quite a few, I will try to do some more later.

    Latest wip, feel free to rip it appart.

    Quick update. Looks like I may finish after all.

    I am really impressed with some of the work going into this CHOW... some really great stuff in this thread. If I have time I want to work more "debris" into her "magic wind" along with the ravens and severed heads. Let me know if anyone sees anything glaring at this stage.

    I will try to post some feedback on other peoples' work when I get a chance.
