    @Rinibee: Like the way yours is turning out, some awsome looking armour, and the Jabberwocky looks sweet.

    @JanJager: Looks cool, the miniguns are well rendered and the caterpillars are badass, if I saw this coming at me I run

    @Csumlin: I notice your atarting to trail away from the cell shading style you had before, it looks neat but the shading and highlights needs to be pushed a little further to bring the form out.

    @Rachael Pierce: It's coming along nicely, liker harmour and the dress is well rendered.

    @DecayingLolita: Alice is looking pretty good, time to start pushing the background to completion I suspect.

    @Drayner: I like these sketches, the first one the most. I'm thinking she'd look better with a long ponytail.

    @DoctorDigits: I'd recommend cleaning up a lot of the linework before adding colours and values, but it looks neat and the armour is interesting, though kind of typical 'fantasy girl' useless

    @Revidescent: It's looking good, maybe add another vines wrapping around her leg to add some extra dramatic urgency.

    @Nocebo: Yeah the superhero look shows through very obviously in mine, but since I'm useless at drawing clothing I'll stick with skintight with few wrinkles for now, this is hopefully the first Chow I'm gonna submit to, so I'm just testing the waters basically. Thanks for the comment though.

    @Gezzunder: Well what I had in mind was Alice looking back at the viewer with some kind of evil smirk, but this work, and adds a bit of a comical element to your piece, the rabbit needs some more of the moodlighting as well, atm it looks very out of place

    @eralfralos: I like this one, Cheshire looks awsome. the shadow over her face isn't really working out so well though, makes it look like her face is too far behind her hair, adding some harder shadows a bit further up would give the same dramatic effect.

    @Dan!: What you have here is an extrordinary piece of work, defone of the best this round. Love the idea of mounting Alice on a Cassawary, cuz it suits the creature of Wonderland! I'm thinking some dramatice back lighting to really make them pop, and to show the silhouettes of what looks like fallen soldiers in the background!

    The rendering is almost finished, will start colouring soon...having lots of fun.

    God I feel like such a loser, but there was no way I could finish this when doing 40 hours this week at work and having two birthday dinners to go to. So I'll post failure Alice.

    I will say, I have learned alot with the very little I've done. Perhaps next week, I'll approach this better. I'll also have more time, so I'll probably be able to actually, you know, finish it.

    Good luck to all those who finished!

    Almost there i think, i did the corrections to the legs as people suggested i might get on to do more with the background but we will see, i think at this point this might be all i can muster. CHow#249 :: Warrior Alice

    Nocebo Yep, thanks for that, her arm holding the cat was off a bit, it was the forearm, it was a bit too short, also ya the knee thing... i dont know how it got down there, it obviously slid the underlying anatomy didnt have it that low lmao

    Rob Powell ugh, lineart, im so lazy, i just put down rough lines so i know where im going before i paint over them and erase them as i go along further into it lol im such a slacker

    hmmm i think its just about time for some reference to fix that armor, i got rid of her exposed cleavage -le sigh-

    Ok, here goes, this is my first CHOW attempt, so please be kind! (Although of course constructive crits are welcome too!)
    Not sure if it's 'finished' enough for the poll, but may as well put it up!
    Fantastic work on here guys, pretty intimidating! Hoping to get more involved every week though and with any luck improve!

    Just realised, I haven't saved any of my WIP shots, so I'm guessing it's not eligible for the poll anyway... oops!

    that reminds me, since my first lotof files with my sketch and a lot of wip was lost does that make my entry ineligable too?

    Quike Garcia: Loving the sketch. The flag is a great idea.

    Dan! : Um. Wow. That's just gorgeous.

    Revidescent: Looks great but I'd love to see you break into the shadows a little with some bounce light or a bolder secondary light source.

    Rachel Pierce: Love it. Great concept.

    Rinibee: That is a great design, and so clearly executed. Love it.

    Jan Jager: Awesome concept! Can't wait to see it finished.

    Dreoilin: I think that's a great sketch. I'm psyched to see it painted up all purdy-like.

    Here's my latest progress. Off with her head indeed.

    DoctorDigits: I like where your design is going; very interesting. (At this point it feels almost redundant to say your cheshire cat is awesome as most of 'em here are, but it really, really is.) Remember to add some details to the cloth bits, even if it's just a couple of seams; they look sort of out of place right now next to the somewhat detailed armor and the hyperdetailed boots. You need to move the arm holding the card away from her side - try the pose yourself, and you'll see that it's basically impossible with that hand angle, and otherwise still very stiff and unnatural.

    Anthromancer: You really need to do some anatomy work. Her head is huge, and she largely has the proportions of a small child. Her leg doesn't appear to be attached correctly to her torso, and her back foot is hovering in the air. Find a reference for the screaming face, because it looks very distorted and almost monstrous; her nose is far too short, even considering it'd be scrunched up for her scream, and her mouth is too far to the left. Her clothing - on her arms and legs especially - is much too skintight, and looks almost painted on; get some folds there in the tension points, such as her elbows and knees, some dimension to the sleeves. Don't draw hair in thin strands like that until you've defined and lit the large chunks. (A lot of the pieces in the finals thread, especially Aly Fell's, are good examples of this.) Finally, when you're shading, don't shade with black, especially on skin. It muddies everything up, and doesn't look very natural. Oh, and be careful of your image settings when you save - your picture has a very grainy look that's not that pleasant, but is down to the compression settings rather than your painting.

    Not trying to stomp all over your first shot at CHoW; it's a great venue for practice and improvement, so welcome! And I really do like the attitude of your piece; your Alice is definitely pissed.

    DecayingLolita: I'm not a mod, but from my understanding, all the WIPs you've been posting here since the beginning should be more than enough. I really like some of your details - the crown, her expression... you should soften the stockings a bit. Bigger, softer brushes. The scribbly lines look almost like folds, but in the wrong direction. And since they're made of fabric, you might want to add some tiny folds around the crook of her knee.

    Smolin: Thanks for the crit, I'll try to lighten up some more areas. As for yours, I'm not sure what the heart thing she's holding is; some more details to make it clearer as to its purpose (weapon? Tiny sceptre?) would be useful. The twist of the pose is far too exaggerated, making her legs look disconnected and her pose unbalanced. Also, if you're not already planning to, soften up the background significantly. You've got some lovely colours in there, but so many hard lines are bringing it forward.

    Eek, I'm super late as well. Should've listened to that damn rabbit...

    Here's my lineart, now to put in some values and get painting!

    BTW, there are so many amazing entries, I won't even dare to start commenting on all of them! Great jobs!

    If I get up real early and work flat out, I might have this done by the deadline? I feel like I don't even have a sense of how much longer this is going to take.

    Revidescent - I like the flow of the piece. Glad you hate those flowers as much as I do lol.

    Quick update before bed.. been working on it too long for one day. Going to have to try and finish tomorrow.

    Thanks Rod, I threw the rabbit in more as a joke, but after thinking about it he kinda grew on me.

    Here's the result...

    eralfralos: I think it could be lighter on the bottom - The light on her is pretty bright, and then the blue floor is bright, but the queen's body is dark. Extend that keylight and it will look really nice
