    update. Went back to black&white for some refinements and details and then started over with colouring. Drawing still isn't done yet but I just like colouring so much

    father time

    I'm doing the next one in graphite. The chalk was fussy, to say the least.

    Any comments or crits would be greatly appreciated at this point.

    I'm not great with characters, so I think this will be my last wip before the final image...

    here is my idea. probably not gonna finish because I have exames next week :/

    @pixeltuner: great piece. but I think there is a problem with the balance point. I did some cropping in order to show what I mean:

    edit: the chimney in the background looks tilted also more interesting and makes the composition look less static. That was nothing I had intended, I've just realized it after posting the image

    Here goes my first Character of the Week. A WIP, but now looking at the other stuff here, I'm guessing there's too many distracting elements in the background. Hopefully I'll find the courage to finish it.

    Decided to go a different direction with this one, wanted to get away from the scythe thing. Concept is Father Time as a watchmaker, crafting us all with care and deciding how long we get to keep ticking. Can't really see it here yet, but the object he's working on will be a small man with gears in his chest, conveniently magnified (partially) by the magnifying glass on his desk.

    Took me four days but finally got a composition that I'm into, figured i'd share. This is my second CHOW.

    I'm another first timer here, and it has been a lot of fun watching everyone's progress. So much great work!

    I haven't been keeping up with this terribly well, but I think I may manage to finish something presentable over the weekend.

    Glaudarien: If you're worried about the environment overshadowing the figure, maybe crop out the tombstones and shorten the window? It is a really great window though. It ties the whole room together.

    Sillirien: I hope you're still going, I liked the crow a lot.

    ChrisProof: I tried to work in some red/blue shift reference too, but did absolutely no research.. all of the things suspended in air works very well.

    Supervlieg: The colors and the texture on the face are great.

    keith eager: The right side of the picture works well, but his robe blowing to the left covers too much of the figure and unbalances the composition, especially since right now it's going off the page. Maybe instead of the whole robe blowing in the wind, just have the bottom end, sleeves or miscellaneous tattered fabric extending out? His face seems to be slightly too large for his body, and the wing on the left seems to be at the wrong angle. You would expect it to look like a mirror of the one on the right, since his body is facing us. I don't mean to be discouraging though.. I like what you've done so far, especially the wing style.

    Back to work!

    Thx, I'll check it out. I tend to miss things like this when I'm not flipping my image enought :p And while I do think you're right to some extend your edit makes him look like he's almost tipping over atm..

    need some help! i didnt use a ref for his posture and now i think it looks too static. i tried to make it more dynamic adding all those flowing fabrics around... do you think it worked? at first i had him wearing his hair long so it flowed like the fabric but then i thought it was all too much.
    is there something i can do withought changing his pose to make him come to life so to speak?
    and i experimented with colors a little. the red is maybe too bright for the setting?

    Whenever I check these challenges it seems a challenge is ending but I decided to have a go at this one so did a quick sketch. I'll only have 3 hours or so to finish it so I doubt I'll submit, but I'll get it completed one day...

    keith: Props on working with chalk man! The cloak looks awesome and I like your distribution of values. Some of the proportioning is off though. I think that the forearms are too small for his frame, and the left shoulder (from the viewer's eye) is awkward. Even though the shoulder is being extended out in this pose, it should be drawn further to the left so his shoulders seem broader. Looking forward to seeing the final graphite piece.

    Pixeltuner: Rendering is looking really really tight at this point. The whole outfit is very believable. As Irrleufer showed you, his balance is off. His correction fixes it for the most part. But another thing that would help balance the pose would be to give him more of a heel, so his feet are convincingly planted on ground. You could also paint in the back leg, as there is no evidence of it yet. Already looking killer in terms of lighting and detail.

    Long time since my last chow, but it's good to be back! Everyone's is looking good, here's my card in the deck. Not sure if I'll finish it on time but I plan on taking it the distance no matter what.

    Cheers everyone!

    I think i'm going to call this done for now, got a busy weekend ahead of me so won't have much or any time to finish him off. I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, however i started off with a different approach and style to how i normally would which i don't think i'll be doing in the future.

    Would anyone be kind enough to tell me how i actually submit this? Its my first CHOW and i am slightly confused.... thanks!

    damn, I don't know if I'm ready for this. I can't do it in colour, because I have no plan. And I cannot even make him look like a walking old man...

    @zeitwolf: typing "walking old man" into google images will provide you with tons of references

    @Irrläufer: tried that
    I now changed his legs so the leg in front is the forwarding leg. looks weird now with the arms, but time's almost up for me (no computer tomorrow, only sky and sand)
    Thanks

    Late start on this one, I've been away from computers.

    I'm trying to draw Father Time as he might have been imagined by the King of comics himself, Jack Kirby!

    Keep at it everyone, really like the range of style going on atm. I'm trying to pick a favourite atm and really struggling. I really like the way Baron's is coming out, Pixeltuner has got a great design and I also really like where keith eager's is heading. Decisions decisions!

    Anyway, here's my entry so far, it's crazy static, and still not really sure what I'm doing with it.
