    Wyrd Sisters..Nanny needs help!

    A personal piece, but want to make it good for my portfolio.

    I'm quite happy with Magrat and Granny but Nanny (far right) is giving me some trouble, it's mainly her skirt and boot.

    What I'm aiming for is to show that she's wearing her infamous red petticoat so I imagined a can-can sort of ruffling of her petticoats as she's grabbing her skirt and marching forward (which would add some movement as well). I've also made her a tad too short (she looks like a dwarf now) so I'm going to make her a little taller but wondered if anyone had any suggestions for her skirt?

    Also any other crits of course would be great.

    Thanks

    THe main thing is that you have her head going forward and her body falling back. If you draw some more torse probably this effect would be corrected. I'd make Greebo a bit bigger and meaner too but this is just personal taste

    How about giving her a bit more animated walking pose? That creates interest with the skirt being pulled sideways by the retreating arm. It also points back toward the center of the image, which seems to work with this type of composition.

    Quike - Took me a while to see that but now I can, it's because I've not given her a neck, I was thinking osteoperosis (or however you spell it) but need ref really...and I totally agree, Greebo will be bigger and meaner

    meDrawUC - Aw thanks so much for doing that, I like it! It works alot better and does help move the eye back to the other two, I'm going to experiment with the other two's arms now and see if I can make them look a bit more dynamic.


    Thanks for your help guys given me a push to finish this
