    OK, things are starting to take shape. Must sleep soon, but I just wanted to post an update: my ego is hungry. Sweated bullets taking reference pictures of myself, but it helped get things rolling, and I like the direction this thing is taking. It's taking on a kind of Harry Tuttle vibe that I rather like. Haven't quite decided on how the arms will look, but t least I've decided on how the trunk of the body is oriented. I was going to try and give it a more cramped feel, but the contortions made the details of the body confusing and obscured, so I settled on this instead. And the character has my face because I'm the only reference model I have on hand ( that, and I'm insufferably narcissistic).

    Great ideas here Loving your one gtgauvin!

    Here's mine start of final piece. I was thinking that his knife(s?) would serve as kinda all access key. Cutting trough metal and stuff. I lost a bit of movement when rendering, trying to get it back...
    The face plate is a bit asymmetrical, I'll have to fix that still.. And maybe get rid of his spike mohawk..

    I have two versions, one with green light and one without. It heps readibilitily a bit, but.. dunno. Opinions?

    Some great work here so far!

    a small update on mine. Not sure if I like the rifle. I may change it to an SMG hanging off her side, what do you guys think?

    Hi guys this is my first time trying a weekly challenge.
    SO heres a rough pencil sketch. trying to find the right emotion of the character then im going to do his full body with armour and everything.

    I wanna go with the 'little bit tapped' solider. creepy smile and ready to get up close and slice you up.

    Hope you guys can give me some feedback. The ones already posted are fantastic.

    IceMoon thank you very much! Now I maybe have a chance to participate!

    I angled her about 7-10 degrees and is it still looks like she's falling?

    Jonathan C I think it will look more futuristic. But I have to say that now she looks very harmoniously at my taste (as far as lady with great rifle may look so))

    Minimum of 3/4 of character should be visible, your character doesn't really fill that.. :/ Unless you are going to continue it downwards

    I think it will be nice composition if your pict will be represented like it's shot on security camera in observing room ( and it becomes a small part of big picture) - it will look like it's shot from movie about spies))...
    but maybe it also won't follow rules of CHOW.

    So this is my first ever attempt at digital painting (outside of MSPaint), my first try with a graphics tablet, and my first CHOW...hopefully I can end up with something decent.

    My influences include various stealth games like metal gear and splinter cell and real life spec ops teams.

    In his left hand is supposed to be a laptop type of computer or something, I haven't fully decided. I'm planning to add a background of some sort, though I'm not sure what and also I want to incorporate a bit more with electronics. and yes I know I'm terrible at hands.

    @Obliviongrin. oh boy that is promising.

    @Kamikazuh. definitely loose the spiky mohawk. I think the reading is pretty solid you don't really need the green lights, but dunno it also depend on how you want to play with the background and environmental lights.

    @Jonathan C. mmm yea i don't see the rifle as an appropriate weapon for an agile unit.

    My little update. any comment always welcome. I'm having doubt on the legs anatomy... i'v being looking it too much, maybe tomorrow will see it better

    I was leaning on getting rid of those too myself, so that was a confirmation.

    I think the legs looked weird because the pose is a bit akward. I tried crouching with other tight straigth down, and it's a lot more natural if it's..not like that Tried to do a quick paintover to illustrate. Not a big change tho, but meh. (Paintovers are allowed in chow, aren't they?)
