    Dang! just clicked on something by mistake and scrapped my whole message. Here goes again . . .

    @MasterTroglodyte - Lookin' good so far. I like that you're starting off with the supernatural whatnot rather than trying to add it in at the end. Try to get more of that into the character though; you don't just want to have a run-of-the-mill girl in an evening dress.

    @Malepart - So you're not going to continue with this? It's pretty nice so far, with the Joker-esque scars and having no eyes is always very cool. This could be pretty awesome if you put some more time into it.

    @fishysmell - Yeah, don't chicken out! Keep going. Explore all the ideas you can.

    @jsn - Thanks! Keep on truckin'.

    @Gadbury - Awesome sketches!, but what have you done to his far arm in the back view?!

    @Dionesiist - Yeah! Keep looking! Moremoremore! (I should take my own advice right?)

    @MJ_Alcazar - This looks more like a male detective to me right now, which I'm gathering is not allowed in this brief. It's good that your really thinking about the design though!

    @Revidescent - Thanks! Those look great. I'll have to go through the whole darn lot of them later.

    @ChaosTheory - Really try to push the lighting and weird stuff. Keep it up!

    @Turaziel - Welcome! This is lookin' good! You're really getting a sense of an implied story with this. Nice!

    @Fernteixeira - Nice drawings! They would be even better if they weren't so blurry. Use your brush at full hardness or close to it.

    @blackfingers - Fine so far, but I'd try to have something else about his attire or person that separates this guy from your stereotypical desk cop or private eye; some gadget in his hand is not enough (IMO).

    @Sseal - Yeah! Nice image! Put Lots of critters in the background and really develop the character! Keep going!

    @LibertineM - Nice idea, this could end up very cool. The hair does need to change, it could be just that it's glowing right now. I also think straight hair would be more related to seals. It would be awesome if you could also subtly tweak the facial features to be more seal-like. I would also change the dress and have the boa or whatever down around her arm and midriff so you can show more chest with very subtle, fading-away spots. Just an idea.

    @delightful_piffle - No kidding. The tricky part is having this noir lighting and still showing the character properly.

    @tobbA - Haha. The Old Guy . . . . keep going with this!

    Here's a couple little sketches from me. Will have more soon. I have to admit I was skeptical of this topic at first, but I'm liking it more and more.

    It's been too long since I tried doing a ChoW! I learned my mistake from last time, gotta show my progress... So here's what I've got so far.

    I'll probably not be including a hat with the detective, he just begs to leave that little detective feature off. I included pictures from Blade Runner, seeing as how the atmosphere and outfits from that movie just won't leave my mind! I like my Femme Fatal pretty much, I'm not sure how much she's going to actually be in the final picture, though... Now to start making the actual painting!

    Mr. Corlan Thank you for your comment! I know that my character looks simple but I want to start with simple character to eventually go with complexity in my creations, for this one I like the rendering, smoke/acquarelle stylish, but I wish I could add more things too like you said..
    Here is my final,

    Remarkably methodic and cold, this detective takes his job on the personnal level, tracking his preys more to hear their last breath than to close the file. Known for his rancorous, he is a psycho maniac before a detective.

    I don't know if my english is fine but I think you'll get the idea lol

    Woke up this morning with this idea for this weeks ChoW! Werewolf detective and Femme Fatale wearing something red. Yeah, you see where I'm getting at here. I probably won't be able to work on it that much but I thought I'd give it a go. Skimming through the posts I saw that image delightful piffle had shown (the guy with the shadow) and it sparked!

    So here's 2 early versions of my idea/concept.

    just a doodle i made.. prolly won't have time to work on this week's chow but I couldn't resist making this at least.

    Really not used to working in light and dark passages, I learned some stuff. Maybe it's too mafia, tell me what you think.

    Tres Chic I like your brown dude alot better. I think the short jacket and the feodora hat, together with what i'm hoping is pinstriped pants fits the mood more than the more "edwardian" (both era and the "vampire") guy in dark grey. Nice style on the portraits, and an usual color palette on your femme fatale. Looking forward to see your progress.

    @Fernteixeira - Thanks! The second is in oil paint, on paper though, so it's just a throwaway. As far as I know there's no limit to how many times you post here. It's always nice when people comment on others' work though—that way it's really more of a group activity. To me that's a big part of what makes ChoW fun!

    @littlemonsters - Nice! I think the bar environment idea is a good one: nice and simple, but convincing. The major feature I see here is the collar, but it doesn't really fit with the rest. I mean it looks like he's wearing a dress shirt and tie, but then there's this huge collar thing springing up out of nowhere. Big, turned-up collars are detective-y and cool, but I think it needs to look purposeful and believable.

    @Malepart - Oh, I wasn't really saying that you needed to add more stuff, I was just thinking tighten up some areas and get some reference to smooth out some of the drawing issues, but no big deal. Good job!

    @tamirespp - I'm not sure what sort of image you're going for here, but if you're trying to be realistic, keep in mind with the spotlights that you can't actually see light, just the way it hits objects. Your figures should be rendered according to the direction of the light and have appropriate cast shadows.

    Here's a couple more scribbles from me. They kinda turned into plain head studies for a bit, and my Cheshire Cat attempt was a major failure. Just tossing ideas around at this point. In ballpoint pen.

    This is where I'm at now, I'm using humphrey bogart as a reference, but once I have him more fleshed out going to take it more supernatural. This is the first time when I've actually participated. (Yay) lol

    been busy with school so I haven't entered CHoW for a while, might not get to finish this one but hey.
    Kinda looks (A LOT) like twoface, which is unintentional.
    It's more of a quick splerge than anything, once I have the face fully visualised I find it easier to work on the rest of the body.http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1318448161

    RyNSWOrLD : Looks great! I can't wait to see it fleshed out.

    Here's an update on mine. I'm using humphrey as a base for my person, as I just think he's the coolest cat around. But when I have it rendered a little better, I'm going to make him unique and supernatural. I just really liked his face for the purposes of what I'm doing. So here's my update.

    Unhappy hey!

    i did also a little and rough sketch. havent that much time and someone already had the idea of a werwolf detective..
    the idea is basicaly about a guy, who is a good detective but becomes somehow a werwolf but is intelligent enoug to controll the mutation procedure, so he is able to do his job much better..

    lots of nice detectives here

    Mr. Corlan love the expression in your first sketch
    Tres_Chic nice start , i like the dandy look in your big black and white sketch.
    marko markovic kick ass scene , it tells a whole story looking forward to see where you will take this
    tobbA lol I like this guy, I am thinking ZZ-top Think about your rendering , right now you are only using form shadows, don’t forget, cast shadows, and lost edges.
    For instance you don’t need to show every transition, like where the feet meets the ground, sometimes that edge can be lost. it will bring attention to where your focal point is, in this picture the face.
    Also try using color variation, light bounces around, work in colors from the background in the foreground.
