My Sketchbook - All are welcome
This is epic. Great work all around.
Pixeltuner - love it! Great contrast between the bot and girl
GEB - Oh man, that's gonna be epic when its done! Keep truckin
daniorrr - Great work! I adore your bot, that drawn on face made me smile.
Firith - Great take on it! Love the mechanic feel of Aoife too.
bobtail - Nice Aoife, she looks so innocent.
ded - that guardian is bad ass!
Bnoch - Wow man, thats great. Your Aoife is creeping me out. Dunno if that is intentional, but its definitely her smile combined with her head facing down and her eyes looking straight at the viewer. I think the pose contributes to it too.
Grumbleputty - That's one way to keep Aoife safe. I like it!
jon n - great sketch. Very animated.
ok, gotta post my stuffs. Will comment more later. So, I wasn't sure I'd have enough time to finish this (as always) but just could not resist trying. Just some initial sketches for Aoife and her guardian bot.
Here's a sketch! I am not happy with the girl's design. Wonder if I will actually finish it.
There are so many killer entries here! o_O

Bnoch: Awesome. She looks way too evil though and the lack of value on her dress makes her look oddly flat.
kingkostas Love the colors
Bnoch How did you done this, the rendering is awesome.
IntoTheVoid I would add a unfocused environment and remove the wired shadow behind the girl.
bobtail nice design, the right shoulder looks wired, maybe you have too much contrast in value there
daniorrr nice picture, are the stereotypical three dots needed?
here's my next step, worked on the robot and environment
Aoife can sit, rest between his shoulders, while hi is moving
need to create more distance in the guardians body
Progress is slow, BUT it's still do'able.... I hope.
Concept here is that her legend is based on celestial control. She has the power to shift the stars and planets, but due to her age she is unable to make any significance change just yet.
I want to capture the image of the guardian relaying the sky above as a virtual map for Aoife to play/ponder with until she is able to fully utilise her powers to either help shape habitable worlds or... ultimately destroy them.
She has also apparently scribbled doodles on her guardians chest piece.
The hardest part for me at the moment is still getting the robot design sorted, but we'll see:]

yeahh Geb, it was tetris like in the begining but since i dont have the time to thing of all 24 pieces i imagined it to be, since it would close down around Aoefie to protect her, i will go to a more sci fi crazy thing, the idea is that the mecha is made from a inert cubes found on aofie planet thats a raw material, but when combined with enchantressess life energie, it can be shaped to desired forms and shapes, and its the only energie this material reacts, so only she can manuipulate it to her will, either good or bad...something like that!!!
thanks kingkostas, yeahh with so many amazing ideas around here, and starting already late, some crazy ideas must come to the plate, so one must not fall behind hehehe, yours by the way loos amazing, shame you cant finish it, but present it in the finals threath after so we can admire it finished.
Bnoch i love your image, not only is well rendered, but the whole simple concept about it amazes me...keep going and refining, about the girls dress i kinda like it that way, its almost like a overexposed realistic old colour photo, where the whites really popped out, but i imagine that even if correcting the values there, i will still like it hehe
About mine, one mor upgrade on it, maybe not to much, changed her pose, what you guys thing about it? still feel is kinda awkward the way her upper body conjucts with her lower body, will treat on that later.
Getting a late start on this, here's my sketch so far:
Hideyoshi i love your mecha its really amazing, and the perpective makes him so massive, about the girl try going with the stripes all the way up her body, or use some design of the mecha and aply it to aoife maybe those massive horns, or wings may inspire something in aoefie clothing, like a headset, or a shoulder stuff, i dont really know whats on your mind, but think about it
Update on this one. Thanks for the help! I dessaturated the red on the robot and poped out the girl more using the light. I've changed the orientation and placed the girl more closely to the center of the composition
Please, help me get better! SKETCHBOOK
