Ok Nick here is the deal!
The dragon had finally turned out great. The main problem here is the both feet - they look too big compared to the upper parts of the leg. Furthermore there are some issues with the foreshortening of the upper part of the legs - I think they are too short. Get the upper part of the body higher and the arms will place in their natural poses. See what I mean!
Wow! Miro you killed me with that one! Now that is the look of the king. I feel like I want to paint it. It is so cool!
Here is the High Priestess. I don't feel like I am going to finish it successful because Miro told me that I must diminish the black patterns and desaturate it, which I did but in small amount! Anyway I tried to reduce them but I know that you both will conclude that it is not finished so If you can touch it a bit Nick it would be great. Feel free to adjust it. - G
That I think is real good Clanlord, very big step forward for you to get some digital painting done! I don't care how we finish but we got some good teamwork going during this challenge and I've certainly learned a lot.
I'll make some adjustments to the King based on Headhunter's work, also thanks for your suggestions too Clanlord. I'm confident I can get a decent version of the king moved forward I have some other ideas about it which are not shown here yet.
I made some of the updates suggested for the king, outright used the legs Headhunter made as well as readjusting the composition as suggested. I'm going to push this one farther and will work on the armor/cloth more tomorrow but I hope to have it mostly finished by tomorrow.
Now it is better! I like it Nick! Here is an update of what I did yesterday. I will work more on it if you say so!
I think that The dragon must have eyes but the King must not have because the queen too has no eyes and logistically we can consider it right to put eyes on their companions. Nick I like more Miro's variant of the upper part of body!
OK Daestwen replied saying we don't have to finish the High Priestess. That being said I made the request before the last updates by you Joro. Can you please upload the most recent version of your Priestess to the FTP and Miro or I will try to touch it up before the deadline. Right now the biggest problem is the super saturated colors, otherwise it's not too bad at all. Cheers, I'm going to have more updates to the King for you. Clanlord I understand you like the Headhunter drawing better but I'm still working on the clothes/armor as I said in my last post. I made some updates to them but dumped them, I also ended up losing about 2 hours worth of work because computer crashed and Photoshop corruped my most recent PSD, thankfully I had a backup so only 2 hours got lost
Kinda sucks for that to happen right at the end though.
OK more later, only 1.5 days to the deadline.
Haaahahaha Miro, vodka i kifli ne se mixirat brato!
Here is a colorization on the King, I'm feeling burned out on it after spending so long. Glad to have pushed one of my own works to a more completed state though. Thanks for the encouragement Headhunter, I wouldn't have done it w/o you pushing me.
Clanlord I'll see what I can do about the High Priestess tonight. No promises my friend by I will try.
Ok guys the final burning thread is up.
My suggestion is to post all of our finished images here first before posting them in the other thread. Miro you're in charge of wrapping these up and you have the border design also.
If there's something you need help with I'll be online tomorrow most of the day unless my internets go down again. I've had lots of problems with my Uverse service lately. Sucks cause my neighbors have it and none of them have the problems I'm having.
Last day folks!
PS. I took a stab at the Priestess but it sucked balls.
Nice catch on the King!
Sorry Nick but I am unable to send you the large file of the priestess. I also think that the painting I did is really novice and it doesn't even come closer to yours so if we include that card it would be funny because it is too saturated. I will try to do my best to improve it untill this day at midnight. I have no access to the FTP account. - G
Man I bow down before your skill Headhunter, this has been incredible to see the subtle changes that you've made to these works to make them stand out so much more. We couldn't have done these w/o your aid and persistance, rather unfair to be on the same team with you.
Oh by the way I'm so glad you removed the extra arms from the 4 of Wands, it's the one thing about that card I couldn't get over and you've found the perfect solution. Clearly it's the 4 of wands, and she doesn't look like a total freak. I'm real happy.
Clanlord your card does look good, I'm proud of what you've done man, similar to how I pushed my King you've also pushed one of your works towards a completed stage. Over the next week I might take a stab at developing your priestess to see if I can make her fit your vision and also to make it look better. I'll leave the decision as to what we include in the finals to Headhunter but the main goal here is to improve and I think you took a huge step forward with that High Priestess card man.
WOW! I like them a lot! OK Guys I think that was the final! I don't know how to thank you both for doing so much work. I pulled you backwards with that "painting" skill I have. But they really turned out very interesting and full of colors, patterns and curious forms. It was my honour to be with you Headhunter & you N1va in one team!
Hope you guys doing well after all this?!?!

I'm a bit burned out so I'm going to take a few days off from art and try to concentrate on the rest of my life.
Clanlord if it's ok with you I still want to paint your High Priestess, at least to try. Also I've been thinking of pushing the version I created as well when we concepted but I'll probably end up calling it the "Two of Swords". Also still thinking about the idea I had for the Fool's card and perhaps will end up pushing that one at some point.
Either way it was an honor for me as well. We had great team work. Despite the long time we took with the concepting I think it paid off in the end looking at our finished results. Also another thing which is evident from our cards is they all tend to flow together whereas other teams' finished results look to be done by different people and don't show the same unity like ours do.
I also learned a lot in this challenge, watching the whole process from the inside was very educational for me. Cheers and thanks to both of you, maybe we do it again for Team CHOW 4 and hopefully we can be even better then!
Forum seems like it's about to puke, lost one of my replies then posted the above twice! BOOO!

I am glad to hear about that Nick. I wish to Miro more luck with the women and to be more careful with the amount of alcohol !
Yes of course Nick. Your painting skills are remarkable and it is great to see another character of mine painted by you! Your painting skills knub out when you have more time and when you find the right time to do it. And it is proved to be so. So again thank you guys. I will be offline for some time in these weeks because it is getting pretty toughy in school. Anyway I wish you both nice times till maybe the next time when CA announce a contest! - G
Arttorney thanks for the info and the props, I'm definitely going to push that card at some point. I'm not sure my idea is so great in terms of mass appeal but I like it enough to want to push it so it'll probably come down to that
