    Thanks, that's an interesting page^^
    The idea to put the person's color in the background is great! Must keep that in mind ... The picture looks very harmonic.

    So, I think that was it for me today. Tomorrow I'm gonna redo the underdress and will hopefully put on some decent embroidery and the still missing feathers - and look for the still somewhat screwed anatomy and shadows >_>
    May stay online for a while, but I should really start learning - I'm gonna write my Abitur next week D:' Oh how I hate stochastics ...

    Mhh ... You know what? I think you should add a sword : D I'm not sure if it's allowed to have a princess of swords without one.

    Page of Swords: "Upright - A good personal emissary, although sometimes a card associated with spying or surveying others from a detached viewpoint. A person of grace and dexterity, diplomatic and skilled in the ability to work out the true nature of things. A person who can negotiate expertly on behalf of his peers. Detachment is one of the true qualities of this figure."

    "The Energy: Efficiency, Commitment, Pragmatism

    The Page of Swords is a strong symbol for activity. As a member of the family of Swords also the Page is dominated by the power of rational thought. His actions are always effective, but often impetuous and insensitive.

    In emotional issues you should follow the Page of Swords only with great caution. He favours vengeance and lacks sensitivity. If – on the other hand – you are in need of practical or logical advance the help of the Page of Swords is invaluable."
    (( Page of Swords , Page of Swords 2 ))
    The card has also been associated with messengers, air, thought, and I'll look into implementing 'swords.' But, I'm not sure. I wasn't going for the literal.

    I see your point ... Maybe you better ask deastwen? If you don't need it it would be a shame to force a sword into the picture.
    Maybe if it's a really weird shaped one, that might look interesting-

    If any, it'd be old and rusted. Maybe laying next to some bones.

    I start classes again on the 11th - so I was hoping to get most of my work done before then


    curly, where's the light coming from? I'm slightly confused.

    11th is the day of my first exam D: The other ones will be on the 15th and 18th, just that you know. 15th is English, I won't have to learn many for that, luckily.
    I'll see that I still do something during the exams, but the first one, music, is quite a lot to learn unfortunately :/

    @Ephelea: Glad you're back
    I think something's wrong with her skin, but I'm not sure what.

    Okay I'll try, but I suppose I'm not a great help.
    Well ... I think its about the color. This woman has pretty much the same skin color:
    http://catwalkfashion.co.uk/wp-conte...antu-knots.jpg
    But I just can't figure out what exactly the difference is :/ Maybe it's only the white light instead of the bright one in the jungle. Or maybe the darker parts of the skin in your picture go more into lilac, could that be?
    And on the upper arm it looks a bit like metal because of the way the light is reflected, it should be softer.

    By the way, I'm so jealous that you can draw hands this good x__X

    I'll do some changes and see what happens.

    And in regards to hands: I'm still working on it. I got a collection of anatomy books for christmas, from my mom. I had a Burne Hogarth book, and now I have 5 George Bridgman. I also took some anatomy/life drawing courses during college. Just keep practicing. If you can't get books, google "how to draw hands" or go through deviant art. It's a start.

    the Empress.

    I got bored with the peacock, the colors were too vibrant, so I tried this. She's "emperor penguin"

    Right on. I'm back in school. But it's storyboarding, and I'm pretty sure I'll manage to pass without killing myself and still have extra time. lol.

    Ephelia, I liked your peacock design a lot, it's elegant and disturbing at the same time. The human skin reflects light but it isn't a mirror!. Don't use only red or reddish colors for skintones, some subtle bleu's or green's can do miracles. The hands are executed fine indeed, but the upper arm and shoulder need some work.
    And if you're bored with it, you've got two characters don't you
    Well that's my two cents.

    I'm sorry for being so lazy in the last days. I did some anatomy stuff & exercises yesterday and I hope that my work will turn out a bit better now >_<

    Don't be discouraged if it doesn't. Things don't change overnight. And, have you even attempted your second card? We're nearing the halfway point.
