    No content to update I just wanted to say quickly that you (brashen)need to encorporate 3/4 of your character as per the rules- just an early reminder: I'd hate to see your piece eliminated because of such a small reason.

    Also Lovely tonal range there!

    Here is my ROUGH initial idea... revolutionary era head-in-a-jar science room twisted (the ship hairpiece finally sets sail in the preserving fluid..yay!) I still need to work out the perspective. CC's welcome.

    getting lots of feedback on composition. Thanks, xLouisax, for pointing out the compositional issues. boyfriend suggested closing off the composition with the fork pointing "out" of the piece by letting the curtain come down. i think it's much more pleasing on the eye.

    composition is a tough thing to learn
    lots of things to do with this still but here is some progress

    still need some critique so dish it out at me!!

    I knew I wouldn't get this finished...and tonight was my last chance before it closes. No where near happy with it yet....her arm is totally wrong ha.

    Thought I'd post what I have anyway....I like the idea of Marie pretending to listen to the witty remarks of others while the only thing on her mind is cake...

    first time trying out a CHOW. hopefully posting my line work first will keep me motivated to finish! I'm loving what everyone's doing with this. Here's what I have so far... She went through a lot in her life, I thought I'd try her contemplative, looking out the window (not yet drawn in)...also cropping is in the works!

    UPDATE: done! ish... I won't be able to do anymore before the deadline. background's a bit blah, and I had to adjust the seat so she looked like she's sitting on it more... still not amazing, but anyway I'm just happy and sort of amazed I 'finished' it in time. Thanks again for the comments!

    A few Crits/comments on Marie-Antoinettes posted on this page


    Brashen: I really like this approach! Great expression
    LA-Fairy: She looks really elegant. Did you get some reference for her pose? Her anatomy could use some work. (Her ribcage seems a little too wide compared to her arms, and I also feel like there's something wrong about how she turns her neck)
    Shogo: Those hands look creepy! I'm not quite sure though from where you look at her. Are we supposed to see her from below? Then maybe check her dress, those layers are pretty good to use as reference points for perspective. (Like grids somehow)
    prepsage: The cat looks really cool, lover the expression! I also like her pose a lot. The texture is a little overdone in my opinion, though. Maybe just show a little pattern here and there and lower the opacity in places that are not of much interest, like the bottom of her dress?
    AlotAbitAlittle: That's a great idea, a little scary, but cool!
    mairuku: I really like the colours you used for her skin! Looks promising so far
    heavy_liquid: I like the different approach. SO many draw pretty dresses. Looking forward to seeing this finished!
    zepheenia: I love her expression, and her hair looks pretty exciting as well!
    Arisun: Great work on the folds and detail! Looks like a lot of work. I also love how you drew her face. I'd really like to see this one finished!

    And I managed to work on it a little more as well Holidays are great!

    UPDATE added some color! Outlining first makes painting so much easier!

    Here's my full greyscale image. I edited the bow on the back of her dress and added cake @@

    I've just started painting colour in a 'colour' layer over the top and its really hard! The colours all come out really wierd. I don't suppose anybody could give me any tips? ^_^'

    Mairuku lookin' good!

    Just a few comments for now...more to come later.

    mairuku: That is looking great! The curtains definitely help frame the figure. Perhaps by bringing the curtain on the right side to create a 1/2 to 2/3 relationship you can bring a little asymmetric interest and also help bring focus to the face.

    Arisun: Beautiful line work.

    zepheenia: The bow on the front of the dress looks slightly out of perspective. I think turning it in with the torso twist (align with center line) will bring a little more depth.

    Brashen: Beautiful emotion so far.

    xLouisax: Your greyscale is a bit too uniform. There's not too many contrasts which will make it seem flat. Personally I don't mess with color layers too much and use the greyscale as a multiply layer and put down base coats of color underneath. Then move to a layer above for additional colors. I think it's kind of a bad method though.. Do a google search of greyscale to color, there's a few tutorials that come up.

    AvisNocturna: Looking good! And thanks.. touching up patterns now.

    mairuku: Try googling "reclining venus". There's typically an asymmetry in the bg to bring attention to the focus of the image.

    No more time to crit for now.

    Few crits:

    xLouisax - nice one, the conection between head and body seems weird though, as if the neck was a rotationg device providing simple rotation to the head, nice values.

    AvisNocturna - very nice lines, colors are very nice as well as values of the bottom part of the dress, values for the top part need some more work but i'm sure you'll correct that. (very nice hands)

    Arisun - very clean work love the details on the hair, her right forearm is a bit weird.

    Zepheenia - nice storytelling and design, maybe you could push values a bit more, it looks a bit flat here and there

    Heavy liquid - the horse's body is fine, its head and neck are less convincing, ref is your friend. Some of your lines are very nice ( especially on the horse) but here and there some others are a bit more "lazy".

    Mairuku - head and hair are very smooth and clean, colors are nice too, the highlight on the breast might not be needed as it should be in the shadow, it distract the attention form the face which expression is very nice. Concernig the fork it's a good idea to close off the composition with the curtain, i suggest you try having the fork go the other way (bottome left to upper right) just to check.

    Prepsage - how did you do such a texture on the dress? it's stunning.

    Shogo - love the concept, don't forget to put some focus on poor Marie-antoinette, for now the focus is on those nice creepy hands

    La-fairy - watch out proportions and anatomy, don't be afraid to use ref if you're not comfortable with th epose (right arm is off)

    Barshen - impressive work, i love the composition, and lines and values.Chack out her nostril and of course beware of the 3/4 rule.
