    Many nice wip's so far

    Anyway... meh!

    E:
    Update: I'm not really sure which version I prefer... either her arms being dragged up or her arms being dragged through a portal (though, atm I yet have to add arms/something to drag them away )

    And I may have to indicate that she's some kinda student/apprentice... hum

    Alright, nervous as anything as I literally have not been actively drawing in almost two years, but I'm throwing my hat in!

    So many awesome wips so far!

    Jasper_ - I guess if what's hung you up is the costume you might want to think first about what it tells the viewer about the character. I see a lot of variation over where to put revealing holes or girly fringe. Do any of those elements you're working with communicate what you want to say about your take on Rosie? Your depiction shows she's a necromancer, certainly, but what about the detail where she's described as top of her class? Where do you show that she's a student in college? I'd say answer these questions with your costume before getting too carried away. It is looking good so far. Finish strong!

    Jasper - Great brushwork! Lots of action in there.

    blueman - awesome idea with the alchemy marks! wish I'd thought of it. :p

    Keep it up guys! I'd write more, but I've got to get painting. Here's a sketch:

    Okay bro this is the third time you've done it, so I have to recommend that you need to start drawing noses on your designs, or at least somehow indicating that a nose exists. If you were doing chibi super deformed japanese kawaii culture type stuff maybe you could pull that off, but with the less stylized designs you're doing it's honestly kind of unsettling.

    Are you using references? Because the anatomy is kinda wonky dude, especially the feet and that hand.
    Flickr and charecterdesigns.org are good places to start looking, but here's something kind of similar

    Update with a little color exploration. I started off way more subdued, but I somehow went technicolor all over it. Time to reign myself in and bring it back down a notch >_> It's a little too "rainbow" for a girl summoning zombies.

    Sentinel - I don't know if it is really THAT out of place. Of course I play games made by Blizzard who thinks that the colors of magic are saturated hues of blues, greens, and purples. Also, I think the slightly brighter colors lend themselves to give a youthful impression befitting of a child prodigy necromancer at college. Doesn't have to be ALL doom and gloom, right? Maybe undeath can be more polychromatic than Hollywood likes to think

    Staticpen - Um, is she pulling the tablecloth off a table or playing toreador with a crow?

    third update, trying different things. Color in the background is just a throw-in for now. Hair might go white or green, and skull will probably change, but I'm happy so far with the progress. of course you guys will let me know if it's just all wrong

    I think you might be moving too fast with your piece Undeadartist. Before adding the FX-like glow, define your ground surface a bit more. Especially where you are making the scribble marks. It gives your work a very rushed feel. I don't think this is what you're intending. Her holding the book doesn't bother me. Keep it up!

    Undeadartist - One of the things you might want to do while you're in tweaking mode is consider how a light source like a full-body surrounding star on the floor beneath her will cast light and thus shadows. Where are your light sources? How bright are they? How bright is the ambient light? I know you want to draw attention to her eyes, for example, but the underlighting below her eyebrows looks too bright for the shadows around them. There are a lot of lighting tutorials out there to reference so take a look and experiment with balancing your light and shadows (layers are your friends!)

    Really nice stuff, everybody. Definitely some solid work going on around here.

    Making more progress on mine. Still got a ways to go, but it's getting there.

    I'm hoping I fixed it - this perspective is turning out to be a lot more of a hinderance than I bargained for! Lengthened the dress a bit and gave her a high collar - trying to go for a Victorian-era look.

    sentinel. - Looks pretty legit to me, dude. The comment about blizzard colors is a good point - undead/necromancy themes don't have to be all grey and black and red. The hair looks totally glam-tastic, though. That's the only thing that catches my eye, and who's to say that can't be on purpose, either? Do whatever you want, man!

    Talking One more time!

    Amazing work guys everybody itīs taking with such care their entries! thatīs great! Itīs more fun that way !! I will critic some of you later... at artistīs time, meaning = at night !

    More Rosie wip .....

    I was not very pleased for time and subject on the dark theme on my previous concept so I threw it away! HAHA! so I went a bit lighter with the topic after all this history itīs about a young student and should be fun to watch!

    So I make her a bit younger and also made some cool and easy composition, although I am not sure if this canvas frame itīs acceptable for CHOW ?? any one knows? since I have seen different kinds of canvas comp, but I think it is best if I ask any of you that already know! Let me know what you think on the composition and if you like the hat or not?




    Jasper
    : Thanks for the critic on the dark saturation, my computers show it fine but they are all mac with the resolution I work with so I could be in trouble if you are having that issue! Thanks! I am uploading the concept once more just the check if it shows alright or not ??
    Your design looks good !! about the outfit question as long as thereīs no panties showing in my opinion looks best! the holes can be used as buttons like you did already!

    Going with a more cartoon approach, less leather, more witchy. My first design/scene had her walking with a zombie following her and carrying her books but I see a lot of people going that way and I don't want to seem like I'm copycatting.

    A little late...first wips

    Just started yesterday...hopefully I will be able to finish. The dog is going to be under her hand. I am also thinking of moving her other arm...it looks a little stiff.
