    Here is a kinda small update:

    Everyone is doing great, really. I'm so proud of being here ^o^.
    - - - -
    @ ValkyriesBard: Yours is so colorful and peaceful. Nice job. It makes me calm and confident just by looking at her. ^^
    - - - -
    @Carnifex: Good concept. It reminds me of some polynesian tribe. I'd try another pose just for the sake of trying, I feel that you are hiding the more interesting bits of her outfit.
    - - - -
    @Parsakoira, Eronzki999, Dranyer, Pixeltuner: I envy you guys. Can't wait to see the updates. (Well, in the case of PTuner, I just envy you )

    *keeps working*

    Looking great Andralexis , welcome to chow.
    Trying the shape approach for this one, thank you Pixeltuner for the inspiration
    Not sure where to take it yet, just playing around.

    Jager really sick, can't wait to see where this goes!
    Andralexis great job so far, really aggressive and dynamic.
    AndreRuben i really love the energy in your sketch, it i hope it shows through in the final.
    ValkyriesBard really nice piece, the nose looks a little off to me in the way that it's rendered... i think it's just too bright on the right side when that side of her face is in shadow.
    Ruri good start, i agree with ValkyriesBard about the pose feeling too static.
    eronzki999 really cool so far, can't wait to see where you take it from here. her left arm (the robotic on in the front) looks a little to too long to me.
    Carnifex i'm liking the costume, but like ValkyriesBard said, i think it would benefit from a more dynamic pose. i particularly like the rocketboots.
    Missile neat idea, i think changing up the angle or going with a more distorted pose would really help to sell the discomfort for the viewer.
    Pixeltuner really cool idea here, but i think it lost something between the b&w and color versions you posted, adding the second arm down at her side, kinda stagnates the pose, whereas with ought it we're kinda forced to look more at the shape of the silhouette and imagine where the arm is... if that makes any sense?
    Ludic he feels off balance, rotating it counterclockwise abit should help with that, on't forget to flip your image periodically to check for anatomy and balance issues.
    CreepySnake try adding a unifying wash of solid color on a multiply layer at low opacity to help calm and harmonize your colors. right now the only real point of contrast is between the sack she's holding and her hand making it the focal point, if thats not where you want the focus, then you'll wanna add more value contrast to other important areas.
    JanJager lookin good, reminds me of the diva from the fifth element.
    Parsakoira pretty sweet, the position of her right leg looks a little off to me. really digging the red rim lighting but i feel like it could be pushed just a little further to really explain the way that the for turns.

    My Muse

    My Muse is inspired by my art teacher, I haven't gone into online graphics its currently in sketch book. Im set with a wacom tablet, photoshop etc. I just need some help with coloring and the whole graphic process. I haven't really done any computer work.

    My heritage is from Scotland and Norway. I have always been inspired by Noris Mythology and the viking culture.

    Also along with this is the artist known as Samwise. Ever since i opened the Warcraft 2 box i have fallen in love with that man's art work. So my muse is a mixture of Ymir the father of the Frost giants and Samwise.

    Twentyone - that's lovely, but ChoW needs at least 3/4's of your character to be visible.

    My main problem with all of this is... i am horrible at coloring, so all my stuff is in B&W. I am trying to learn but not much luck. I just guess i don't understand how to do it. oh well practice makes perfect. After i get this guy all inked and shaded i will try to color him.

    Thx for all the comments everyone. I gave my piece a rest for a couple of days so I probably can give it a fresh eye tonight.

    although i by no means regret the time spent,it is a bit of a bummer,because you could already see where i was going when i started with colours. not to mention that i might want to work on other pieces by now.
    but i think i might actually re-do it. if it doesn't work out,i can still submit this one.

    edit: i've decided to put the new one side by side with the old one. first one being the more serious side,and this new one showing more of her playful nature. i hope it comes across. c&c?

    I absolutely LOVE Klimt - I recently did a master study of one of his 'judith's and thought I would incorporate some klimt-ness into my muse.

    I love images of powerful and sensual women - its a theme I come back to alot in my work. Not a fan of the airy-fairy types... I like my lassies to be well built (like myself!!).

    Not sure about the shapes etc yet - but its in ideas stage of course...

    okay, haven't entered here (or drawn for that matter) in at least 1/2 year. seeing as i'm on vacation, i thought it would be a good use of my time to do some chows.

    here's my try so far. i've been letting it "flow". i have no idea as to what i wanna end up with and just want to see what comes out.

    sorry guys, i'm not giving any feedback right now, just submitting my lineart sketch, to start posting wips, as I really want to finish this chow

    So, here's my sketchy sketch

    I promise to give some feedback, but so far I'm impressed with the wild color palette of Parsakoira, but to me the character doesn't seem complete, maybe it's just me? (personal opinion).

    DHTenshi: I can sort of understand what you mean by incomplete. For me, the wings don't seem proportionate to the body, though it really does depend on whether the wings are angelic or faery - if it was my peice I would try adding either more volume to them or adding a smaller second set below - but thats just me & probably means nothing. You might find after you start rendering, it feels much more complete, especially in regards to the shield & the other object she is holding.

    & i agree, Parsakoira's pallet is insanely impressive! Parsakoira, Absolutely loving the bright red highlights. The only part i feel you could improve on is the detail in the feet - not to be picky or anything!
