    There are some great pieces here already, really nice compositions. As for mine, there's a bit more tweaking ahead and I'm not really chuffed with her but I've kinda ran out of time with it. I've used it as an excuse to make some new brushes, for making smoke clouds and feathers. Anyways... my offering below, with close-up.

    thegrayslayer - Looks ace, but I seem to have a thing about hands at the moment. The one that is touching the handle of the scythe looks like it might be better gripping it. All the weight is at that end where the blade is...

    Hey Posh, Thanks for feedback.

    I wanted her to be quite ethereal and sultry despite being the sinister harbinger of doom and death. I was imagining the scene of Galadriel (sp?) in the first LOTR.. only in negative. I mean, powerful but never really moving stuff around .. by hand. Not to say she's got Jedi telekenisis or anything, just that I want her to look floaty and ghostly. Not sat on a farm gate.

    here is mine, I might add some more (magical?) elements, I might not...
    Was undecided on the leg posture and design...

    Some really stunning work in here!
    Posh: she's a beauty!

    edit: I'd appreciate an opinion, is this better in terms of the leg posture?

    thanks to everyone for their comments, especially Kailaan, for your suggestion to darken the values...if I had known what I was doing, I would've used a multiply layer, but as I don't, I just painted over everything again still plugging away, but here's a bit of progress.CHOW 182 :: The MORRIGAN

    The big top one, or the middle one of the three smaller ones. The one with the legs together looks less natural.

    Hideyoshi : I would say the middle one of the small ones.

    Hideyoshi: I would go for the large one at the top. The turned in feet matches the somewhat awkward hand gesture (awkward in a good way - it seems natural) and matches her overall character.

    As for me this is the last WIP I will probably post unless I get feedback that requires a "fix". I just need to finalize and (hopefully) find time to add everything I wanted surrounding her.

    Hideyoshi: Personally I really like the pose you had in the second image. I think the last one seems a bit awkward, like your trying to hide the right foot.

    Really good concept though, can't wait to see the finished piece!

    Oh thanks kindly everyone!
    Haha, the 2nd small image was actually just a WIP stage so I didn't even consider using that leg pose.
    So here is my final.
    Personally I liked the awkwardly bent legs myself since it best defines the character I was going for So I am glad no one liked the last one...

    Stew9: sorry, no more detailling, I don't like to overrender things...

    thegrayslayer: looks nice, i like the colors alot, but her proportions from the waist up looks a bit off, i think its her torso looking a bit to big compared to her thin waist.
    Hideyoshi: looks good
    Hellfire: i really like the shadows
    Dan!: wow very strong colors, looks good, and i like the grey version as well

    havent done one of these for a while, but i thought id waist a little time this week started off in photoshop for background, but then brought it into painter for detail, where i feel more comfortable. still plenty left on this though, the sword is looking pretty naff so far, and defenatly not enough crows.

    Hey everyone,

    This is my first time in any comp on this forums so this is really cool, just wanna say everybody's wips are EPIC.

    So what I had in mind for my Morrigan was some kind of seductress-esque kind of angel of death maybe. Any and all critiques would be awesome and I don't think it would be so hard to find some (I really hope mine isn't too crappy).

    Some that I just noticed are:
    -skin tone bland
    -shoulders are on the masculine side
    -need to push the pose more
    -head piece looks boring
    but if you can think of any others and I'm sure there's many please tell me.

    EDIT: updated the pic with some minor proportion changes

    everyone's work looks great. couldn't pass this up.

    i really liked how dwinbotp was combining his two pieces, so i started trying to figure out how to do the same. my cu chulainn piece doesn't really work well with anything though, so i'm going to do another one to fit with this morrigan piece. (that's the whole combined sketch.)

    didn't start with much of a drawing, so i've just been painting it in. probably already spent too much time on this stage. i'm trying to use more colors and stuff, so that will hopefully be the real focus. right now i'm just having too much fun though. not sure what's going on with the background yet...

    crits and comments welcome. on any of it.

    No time :(

    I really wanted to enter the last one but I didn't have time. I don't have time for this one either to do it proper but here's what I got done in 1.5 hours. Afraid this will be it.

    Lovely entries this week, I feel like a numb missing Cu Chullain and now seemingly missing Morrigan also deadlines, finances and family take too much time right now...


    DAN
    - You lost some of the looseness when you coloured it, I like the composition and the colours are nice but the B&W just looks way better in my opinion...

    Decided to do an old hag. I realize now how similar her pose is to a few others but it wasn't intentional so I'm just going to roll with it.
