Here's an update on mine. I've been doing a lot of rendering and I still have a lot to do.
I wont be able to finish this one. i'm really expecting to see the finals and good luck you all
Kliest - great linework, love the column detail.
Eph - Keep pushing that lion templar idea, great brainstorming ideas.
(Havok - thanks, I altered the pose to help fix some issues with the anatomy)
Update on mine.
not sure if this is showing 3/4 of the character. going for a ancient roman type deity character like Atlas
Holy crap! Some reeally awesome stuff happenin here!!!
Bnochwow,...love your work! Do you rely on "happy accidents" while developing a piece/character?
kingkostasthanks heaps! Awesome to see your awesomeness!
Now lookin at ref's and kinda liking where I'm goin!
I've try a different angle for my background. Sadly, I won't be able to explore a lot of thing for this character if I want to finish it for the 20th because I'm going to school while I'm doing this, but I love to get critics as you did @Havok Reed. Thank you very much! I'll try to get a tutorial to know how to do hair well. But for now, here's what I'm going with:
I'm not pretty good in environnements through, but I try to improve!
Awesome job all. Hope to see lots of entry on the finished forum
Preliminary Sketch to get an idea out. Don't mind David there, he just hanging out.

Havok Reed, thanks! I just sat so long with it that I got feeling it's time to show something...))
Unfortunately I will be far from PC for a day, so I tried now to start thinking about his design.
Eh, i'm myself amazed how it looks like almost nothing changed but it took from me about an hour or even more to do these small changes.
I want to make my colors clearer. Add some atmosphere of golden glowing and restless sky here and calm skies beyond golden gates. (there will be stairs there)
Desaturated it and have feeling that I need to add some contrast)

Absolutely awesome work you presented. I'm quite jelous of the amount of skill and dedication you can put into your paintings. I'm kind of a beginner at this.
Since my last post was kind of lost, I guess, I'll try it one more time:
" Tangga Surga", the stairway to heaven, essentially cannot be seen by human/mortal. But there are times when it becomes visible. At these sacred times, protection to the gate is needed to avoid mortals enter the gate. This important job belong to "Gagah Kappoasa", the Guardian of the Sairway to Heaven. He has human size, to easy mobilize when preventing mortals enter the gate. But when needed, He may call his alter as weapon: "Gagah Rakkoasa". This giant spirit is controlled by Gagah Kappoasa. Mimicking it's master, and equipped with Gods Super Power. There is definitely no mortals will pass the gate when this Powerful Guardian on duty.
Im back. Making the shield to focal point.
here is mine :3
@ loengrin: Well that is some good Work especially her head and Crown.
Loengrin – Lovely work and design, that rendering is a dream! I think you could brighten up the background, might make her stand out even more.
pangketepang - I like your explaination, really original and has given you a cool design.
Vatteh – I think when you add some detail to the wings that will help. I thing it’s a great piece, but maybe adjust the position of the weapon tip and wing, it reads a bit awkward with the flow of the composition.
Renart – Interesting concept I hope you get time to finish it. Try cropping some of the background / altering the composition to focus on the character. I think there is too much empty background space. The guardian is really detailed and well done, I like the little dude on the staff.
Mhugo – They all work for me man! I like the one with the sword best, reminds me of some badass boss from dark souls, but third guardian looks hardest.
Sorry for not giving feedback on anyone else's stuff, I need to get lots done if I am gonna finish this one.
Great work guys!
We have one more day left before the deadline and I hope to see more entries in the finals thread!
For any first time participants be sure and review the rules and guidelines before submitting your final.
Alas it appears I will get no further than this before the deadline. Good luck all.
UncleThat looks sooo awesome! The scale of it,...well done!
MhugoLove it! He looks really grounded! Good job!
fairstrangerHey, wow...I hope you get to do some more on it, looking really good, nice lighting!
DayleComing along nicely. Looks like you're spending a lot of time on the details, they look good! Good luck!
Nearly happy with it!
i think this time my pic is just road to nowhere, so i tried to redraw roughly it from B&W. in my opinion it's a little bit better cause it has some contrast but still I like nothing in it. This time silhouettes was the best part of a process)
Well, it's all part of learning!)
On a side note, What is that brush you were using for the BG?
