Thanks for the feedback, i appreciate it!
Here is a color update..
I made the head a bit larger and shrunk her body, so she won't look so long.
I like what it so far .. but still far from done... I was too lazy to do the hands.. Attachment 1094515
Off to cook dinner...
Andreruben, Hellbeard, Abrodos, Matias, GEB, Ninsta: kudo's for going with an orc! Not easy to pull of I figure. Especially your value only version has a very Frazetta / Boris Vallejo-ish feel to it GEB. Very nice! Matias' orc feels more Elvgren / Vargas pinup though. LA-Fairy: Very cute! With a user name like yours it's gotta be a fairy. idoru: A guy pinup! Very rare I think (except for those works in the "Chinese androgen guy portraits"-style I can't remember the name of) Pixeltuner: You're already this far ? You're a machine, a machine I tell you! Nice progress though. Don't know what it is exactly, but she somehow reminds me of Amy Winehouse. Jager: Heh, cute fairy Jager! Something Tim Burton-ish about her though (maybe it's the frog) Tbaldree: Oww, very Elvgren! I like it a lot. Mittymandi: That's such a cute dwarf! Good job, not easy to pull of either I reckon. Parsakoira: Yikes, you started over? Good call though, this version feels more pinuppy indeed.
I'm currently a bit torn. Wondering if I should go classic pinup with fantasy outfit, fantasy pinup with an attempt at rendering it to look like a classic pinup or something more playful (or a combination) ...
3 quick sketches:
Kind of miss the tiger here ... too much WoW I guess (yup, I played a night elf)

Idoru Yeaah let's get some men inda house!! LaFairy This is looking amazing, but I think she needs a slightly different skin colour, or perhaps there's a way of making her look more magical, (perhaps glowing?) as she looks very human at the moment. Ninsta yeah i went for the bow one, changed a bit though! Nice work on yours!
And here's mine. I completely went off on a tangeant. I tried a goblin, but I think I just can't do it! Lol, I want her to be pretty and girly, so perhaps she is an elf? bah!

Good point! Thanks for pointing that out. I was trying new colors.. I like em, but there is something missing. I'll add a glow or different highlight/overlay when i add the wings. Thanks.
I love your concept.. that is just rawrrrr!

YES! The fairy wings are coming..
I like your third one, the face is very cute/sexy...
I typed a veritable novel... I don't know what prompted the compulsion, and I'm sorry if I left anyone out... I'm also sorry if anyone is offended by any input I provide. I realize I'm not yet a professional and therefore may step on toes more proficient than mine... Alas, I may never be so verbose again...
GEB - Very solid construction! Admittedly I liked your second WIP's values a bit more and I wonder if you couldn't zing the colors a bit more... Otherwise I am envious
Zantillia - I'm a newb also, and nobody has smacked me around for being so... yet. CHOW has been a way for me to try to overcome some of my usual problems and elevate my art. So come on in! The water's fine, and apparently swimming with scantily clad fantasy folk...
Parsakoira - I love where the flesh tones are going! A LOT! And she's definitely more pin-up now
Katanasoul - I'm not sure what the issue is w/ your color... I only know your figure looks quite sound and the costume is fantastic, especially for being woozy. Just try slapping some colors down intuitively. I tend to put a base color (for the skin, for example) and then based on the hue of my light source modify said color, and so on... (Not that I know very much, mind you)
Ninsta - I have to say that while there's a lot else right with this piece I love her face. Those eyes are so intense yet inviting, and the molding lend the otherworldly aspect of the character a strange humanity. My primary concern is with the visible leg, its shape, molding, etc. and also with the balance of the figure... I assume she's crouching? sitting? Still, lovely direction
lissinator - the composition is great and your character has tremendous attitude and bearing. I'm not sure if I'm splitting hairs but the position/perspective on the head/face? When I first looked at it my antenna went up (no euphemism intended). It's probably nothing...
Pixelturner - Lovely colors... fabulous textures, etc.
LA-Fairy - It's coming along nicely
Xaya - Vava-voom! And oh yeah... sexy blah blah blah... Seriously... I love the flesh tones... especially that deep hue on the left cheek (her left) and the flesh tones juxtaposed with blue, etc. I'm just plain flabbergasted
RicoD - I pick the third iteration but w/o too much going on around the character (which I realize may be difficult, no?)
troyzart - I think the character is charming (does she have a lollipop? oh the scandal) ... Even though I realize this is meant to be more loose/cartoony I think her right leg might need adjustment... and perhaps a slight tweak on the composition? Because my eye is drawn to the legs in front instead of to the face… Of course I could also be talking out of my butt…
Arthur ‘Two Sheds’ – Lovely work as usual, though I may have to put Drain-O in my eyes
matt kohr – You need to just get the heck out of here. Seriously. Now. I need to go somewhere and cry. (Pause) K… I’m back. This is lovely. And I hate you. (I kind of like the placement of the second step more… Can you flip it back??)
prepsage – Wow! Definitely WOW inspired… hehe. Her haircut is my favorite…
Jager – the colors are fabulous… I feel like I’m looking at an old delicious print…
And after all that here's my next WIP, which I know needs more love than I may likely have time to give it 'ere the end...
I appreciate any and all critiques, comments... and I take as good as I dish out
