    blurgh

    This chow is proving to be difficult for me. I have the idea for the character down and could paint her and her joints for hours but none in regards of how to present said character as an illustration. I have put her in literally a dozen poses and composition ideas but none have made me v. enthusiastic about the piece as a whole and I only end up frustrated.

    This is what I pieced together, but enthusiasm is lacking.

    Hey guys some great stuff in here again. Just wanted to share some ref with peeps. I don't know if any of you remember this Bjork video but it was very beautiful. I reckon if you swaped the plastic for porcelain and the black metal for brass you'd be onto a winner! Also ghost in the shell would be great doll like ref. Anyway here you go

    @Rachelpierce : I like your work so far , maybe think about the characters story for a bit ? Who is she ? does she have a personality , a character ? why is she like that ? did the mad inventor make him like that ? what is she doing in the scene exactly ? a performance with an audience ? such a storyline might help for an illustration idea . hope it helps ... i think i should apply all that to my own painting as well though

    EDIT: GEB - Stunning head design! /EDIT

    Rachel Pierce - The contorsionist idea is already a great part of the originality of your design. I don't think you have to paint a whole scene, especially if you don't feel like it.

    RedPen - Looks nice. I'd welcome a bit more technostuff to her though.

    fragmentedchimp - I don't understand what she's doing with her arms

    SaintLConcept - There's a healthy dose of fun in her design. But could you ask her to put on her mask quick please XD

    snippet - The position is a bit awkward, maybe because of the knees that cling to each other and the face that reads like slightly fightened.

    Caspia - Good start. Making her cold hearted is an interesting way, especially for a robot.

    vibhas_virwani - She does look doll-stiff. When I looked up steampunk dance I hit a saber belly dance too

    I'll post more crits later.


    Here are my preliminary sketches. I was too tired to post them yesterday but I'm not happy at all with them today. I first imagined Coppelius the Geek had a crunch (EDIT: forgive my English, I meant "a crush") for "Asian dancing" and made his doll according to how he vaguely fantasied it. He also had a Chinese automaton. Problem is, Swanilda should be able to pretend to be Coppélia for the story to work. EDIT: The redness on her chest and throat is the "furnace" that shows through.

    GEBThat's really gorgeous. The jewelry reminds me of india which is appropriate for victorian era steampunk I suppose. Would be an interesting mix to see.
    Leo KiI really like the concept of a very organic looking robot doing something so very machine like. If you can't think of expressing the steam or fire effectively you could always just have her lips parted and have a coal engine glow coming from it?

    Blurgh. Chucking out another idea. Not happy with anything still. More obviously machine like than the other but this is turning into an illustration, rather than a design.

    You guys may want to check out this site at is was partcially the inspiration for this weeks topic: http://www.enchanteddoll.com/

    Not only great for inspiration but also reference for joints, porcelain tones etc. Also if you have the time, check out Volks BJDs, Obitsu 60 and Pullips..... A very good source for doll references.

    Rachel Pierce - I think your character would look awesome with long white hair. Have you tried giving her hair?

    GEB - Fantastic head design.

    Love the topic, glad I caught a steampunk one before they go out of fashion.



    Some comments on the entries so far:

    Mr Gadbury Wonderful how your depiction of the room really sets the mood. I would like to see the feet of the characters, not just because, but it looks a bit like she has a peg leg.

    vibhas_virwani Very nice exotic take on the subject, really looking forward to the final rendering.

    GEB Beautiful portrait, brings tears to my eyes, the good kind.

    no87 I like the idea with the hoses and pipes as puppeteer strings. But watch the length of her arms and legs, they come off a bit simian now.

    Leo Ki The more femme fatale designs you have going there looks interesting.

    Rachel Pierce Beautiful drawing as always. I agree with adding hair but for some reason I think metal hair would fit better.

    Dreoilin Love the scene and the potential detail. This can be awesome, excited to see where it goes.

    Mr Gadbury, - I second FunnyFace's comment. The cut at the ankles is really uncomfortable. It's a great image otherwise!

    Cool stuff, i like the raptor legs hidden under the cake dress, i'm prety sure its not actually called a cake dress.

    I get you leo, they looked a little off, that ought teach me to get some thumbnails out first.
    hells bells geb, thats a pretty good looking face, looks so convincingly fragile..
    awful update, i've got a feeling its going to get rehauled 1000% , not digging the style its popped out with, it tends to happen every so often... maybe it rings steam punk to me.

    oh and some electric sheep.

    @RedPen - Double thanks for that post, that really got my brain going

    @Rinibee - Those dolls are amazing! Check out those knee joints! I don't know why I didn't even think about porcelain.

    @Rachel Pierce - I liked her on the floor better. It seemed more believable. What if you just did something simple like a dark stage with her spotlit? You could put some sort of pattern on the floor maybe. Something along these lines:



    It would also be a lot more three-dimensional if it wasn't just a dead-profile. Maybe turn her upper body so you can see some of the front planes - it doesn't have to be much.

    There's going to be some awesome entries this round!

    Heres my preliminaries. I feel like a bit of a sleazeball just cut-and-pasting photo references, but I plan to do this in oil paint so I'll have to redraw everything anyway. Tryin' to be all hardcore about this. We'll see how it goes.

    The photo-refs and my subsequent paintover. There will be more gadgetry.

    Mr. Corlan
    Good use of photos. Looking great.
    JSpayde
    Nice
    fragmentedchimp
    I like the dynamic sketch and idea. Be careful to get the shape of the uttermost leg correct.
    Caspia
    Interesting composition. I like the design and colors. After setting the design I think you should work on the shape and colors of the shadows.
    FunnyFace
    I like the colors why not have little more space to the left.
    Mr. Gadbury
    Awesome!!!
    no87
    Nice idea. Watch the length of her arms.
    Leo Ki
    beautiful sketches. Very promising.
    GEB
    brilliant. genius combination of china and I-rbots. Beautiful.
    Rachel Pierce
    Very nice. I like the idea with the shadow but perhaps dampen it a bit.
    RedPen
    Coming good. Nice details in the design.
    SaintLConcept
    I like the idea and composition Looking forward to see you render it out more. Perhaps highlight the face in her hand a bit.
