    PowleyMann: The anatomy is not working, as drawn she looks cartoonish. Nose too pointy, elbow too pointy. The rib cage doesn't look proper. You have some good light source going but the entire image needs a bit more work imho.
    Thanks Alot for the Crit Niva. my drawings always turn out to cartoony so i kinda just go with it. probably from my lack of drawing from real life. thanks for the compliment on light its another element at which i struggle.

    heres my ref pic i was usin. pretty funny how far off i was now that i look at them side by side.

    Man, this is gonna be a challenge! A bunch of really tight entries this time! I decided to have a go at this chow, and try to be original, but after a quick browse through this thread i see that every idea that popped into my head thus far has already popped into everyone else as well.

    So i'll discard every thumbnail i made yesterday exept one.. all of them, exept one, looks like i'm directly trying to copy previous entries in this thread, even tho i didn't see any of them until now.

    now to develop my ONE halfway original idea.

    This thread is still as epic as always.
    Been working on the contrast especially in the skin and I elongated the
    head piece to make it fit the crow overtone.
    I would love some tips or crits.

    PowleyMan: I think the rib cage is way too harsh for her pose, a good way to get rid of this is to change it so that the breast is overlapping the start of the rib cage so that it doesn't create a tangent. And the bottom of the rib cage points too far out.

    Wow Soth, that looks awesome!
    Maybe a few crows for extra depth?

    Whoo boy! It's been such a long time since last time I entered now! I have been much too busy. But today I suddenly thought: heck, I'll enter! So I sat down, and worked it out from start to finish. I wanted to work in a rougher way than I usually do, keeping some of the sketchy look instead of nitpicking it to death.

    Some of the progress, since I didn't participate in the WIP this time:

    Smile Now with props!

    So I am pretty much walking you guys right through this one... 7:30 am, need to rest my bones...

    Started off honestly enough, going for the classical, Waterhouse feel. You might be able to see this coming through in the 1'st pic, though the lighting is very high contrast and modern... More Alex Ross than any of the old guys. Than when it came time to give her some props all hell broke loose! She took on a whole life of her own! And now she's at large, a force to be reckoned with! Listening to NIN, looking at Frazetta might have had something to do with it...

    I really feel like this one is going to turn out looking great, I'm giving myself pretty much the entire weekend to work it out... sweeet!

    Mitze: Looks great, but I have trouble telling if she's supposed to be floating or standing on the ground. Her feet and pose suggest she's floating, but there's a wedge of shadow connected to her foot that suggests she's on the ground.


    Worked some more on this. I don't know if enough of the figure is visible to follow the rules, but I like the way it looks so I want to finish it regardless.

    poshspice : short on time and hoping to finish my own piece... but I had to come on here and say I am deeply impressed with your final (really your work in general). It has a very natural feel to it and the vegetation surrounding the scene is very well done. The character feels "right" in the scene and the raven alighting has some real fluidity. Nice job.

    jspangler - thank you very much. I was trying something different with the plants, using specific brushes, something I don't do a lot of, and trying to be looser. Working out of 'dark' to light helped as well.

    I'm in the sketch stages, I'm hoping to be finished before the night is up.

    After a little research, I decided that I wanted to incorporate her animal appearances, more so than just the crow.

    Any critiques?

    Evil_Sloth - beautiful work. Very curious as to how it turns out

    Poshspice - Saw your final. Very love colors. Something about the skinniness of her extended arm bugs me but it's very nice.

    kylogram: The biggest thing I can see on your first drawing is that (her) left breast looks too small and too far over. Also, since she's lifting her arms, I'd have that influence their shape and the position of her torso, which looks like it's caving in rather than sticking out. I like the wolf head thing though, that's a neat idea.

    Pixeltuner - the runes are a bit Nordic perhaps Ogham would be better?

    Will post wips later... but, suffice to say, I still haven't mastered the art of using my tablet... still feel more comfy on paper with pencil. I really wish I could get over the "control" of the pencil but... apparently I haven't yet.

    I even attempted to start this one using the comp instead of paper/pencil though, as you can see, I went right back to paper again. -sighs-

    This will likely be my final as everything I color seems to lose it's impact/direction. Thoughts? I wouldn't mind some pointers, frankly. :/

    pixeltuner, i quite like what you have done so far, but i agree about the runes, they're not quite working, also think about changing the celtic pattern around the edge, these look like they just been taken out of the book of kells or a modern interpretation of celtic art, true celtic designs that were created much earlier than the kells were much more interesting and meaning to them

    Well the border is just a design element. So I really didn't care about the meaning or that it's not historically accurate. It's more of a modern graphic design thingy

    A bit more progress, This is the third crown I have tried, I still am not happy with it.

    Tavarilyn: I have the same problem with drawing on tablet. I have better luck if I start with a scanned quickish pencil and paper sketch, and work super zoomed in.

    This is where I've decided to stop for the day. Hopefully tomorrow I can make everything tighter. Something feels off about the whole picture, but I can't place it.
