    @Thole, well i think you choose great character for this theme, but i must say it is to static and dull. I think that you should give more interaction between lion and lion tamer, take a look at these images, and this was just quick google search

    The living Tatoo

    Hi all, I am loving the work happening here. It just sucks that now is the first chance I've had to start anything.

    My idea maybe way too big to pull off before the challenge deadline, but I shall give it a go.

    The idea is Cecilia the tattooed woman. she has been covered in a tattoo which was created from a possessed tattoo gun,
    the tattoo is like a parasite but it must keep it's host, Cecilia alive and young in order to survive.
    The tattoo leaves her body when she sleeps and searches for a young girl,
    it covers the girl and absorbs her youth, killing her in the process, it then returns to Cecilia and she is fed from the tattoo, keeping her young.

    So far I have only had time to research the possible poses. But I hope to get some scribbles done tonight.

    Vandalfish - love the scene, very excited to see it rendered. Maybe add some more macabre elements (body parts in jars, etc.) to give it the seedy-underworld vibe?
    tokotewhero - looooove these characters. Maybe punch up the scene some for both of them, and I'd like to see some more design/thought put into the winged man's pants/costume.
    Suncut - I like the fire breather, and your shapes make a nice composition, but I find my focus is no longer on the character/personality, and I don't see the dark and/or mysterious elements at all. Maybe more focus on the character and a tighter crop on the figure can help you out here.
    Crumbelievable - I like your drawing, the character is cute and there's tons of action in this. Your colors are kinda bugging me at the moment - that super bright pink against the yellowy-brown looks kind of odd. See about toning the whole piece with colors that compliment more/give a sense of environment - I love the pinks, maybe I would pull it that way into reds/magentas.
    PxelSlayer - AHHH, love the faces!!! I just need to feel more circus here, everything else is AWE-some.
    RichLyons - you are my hero, I think. Only small crit - took me a moment to read the clown paint on him, maybe make that element stand out a touch more.

    sketching and starting to paint.
    wheeeee...

    Managed a very quick sketch in between jobs. I will try to get some comments down this evening.

    I hope my scribble makes sense, the tattoo is peeling off Cecilia who is now unconcious without the tattoo,
    the seated figure is the tattoo spirit, there will be no skin just the tattoo
    forming the shape - I thought it would make for an interesting challenge.

    I can never seem to get more than a sketch done before the week is up, I'm such a noob, but here she is: the snake charmer/poisoner.

    JessiBean — Wow. I'm just... well, I'm not surprised at all. But WOW. I love your lighting, the structure, the surfaces. Everything is loverly. I want to cry on so many levels and for a few different reasons. Wow. You make me want to start the heck over...

    MatejaPetkovic — My only thoughts are that it's stiff. Background and foreground are well defined; the textures seem to be well executed, and the lighting is evocative of the intended creepiness. You've even managed to make cigarettes humanizing. But something still feels inorganic or stilted (this taking into account the plasticity of the character itself); obviously, being frank, this is me really grasping at straws. Oh, and I almost always feel left out...

    ok start late..... here is my entry, I present the human centipede, he is one of the attractions, but because of his stature remains most of the time watching the entrance to the circus, this position also allows hi to polish his skills, he is an excellent thief.and almost forgot, the reason for his deformity are his 2 Siamese twins

    Anis the sword swallower

    Havent done a Chow in ages,
    This one was too much fun to pass up!
    My character is a Sword Swallower for the circus
    and a grifter/blade for hire behind the scenes (extortions and the like)
    Its brushpen inkwork with photoshop and some illustrator
    I've uploaded a bunch of my early concept work too if anyone is into process (i know i am)
    I did a bunch of inkblot type things to brainstorm overall shapes and just generate good positive and negative space, and then just filled a few pages of character renderings, different costume ideas faces poses etc.
    i finalized a sketch that i liked and used the lightable to clean it up before inking and thats pretty much that, once in the computer i laid down a neutral background (i hate working from white, and laid in some flat colors, for the final im going to put the image of her actually swallowing the sword in the background (with the main illustration i felt like it was hard to tell what she actually did circus-wise) and lay in some more complex tones for the main illus. overall though i think i'm pretty close to done
    had lots of fun with this one, love turn of the century stuff
    any feedback would be rad!
    cheers,
    -Sil

    MatejaPetkovic It's difficult to give CC on such an awesome image!

    Incidentally, Parsakoira and I have decided that we will allow photo collage-ing as a form of concepting providing that the finished image is painted and wholly original. I hope this clears things up for people.

    JessiBean You never fail to impress me with your concepts. If I could have half your talent I would be one happy bunny!

    CrookedHorn Knife thrower assistant eh... what about someone who can heal any wound? Think of the situations she could get into without taking any damage!
