Hey, I am sorry, I suddenly got incredibly busy again so I am going to push the deadline a few days but I guess since a lot of people are more in a sketch state right now that isn't to bad. So you have untill this sunday (April the 27th) to work a little more on your beautifull drawings. Will make the finals thread later today!
Scutterback, nice work! Very good that you investigated the subject on wikipedia. Research is the way to go.
Clockwork, I like the moodboard very much! Wanted to make one myself for everybody but didn't had the time...
Ictis, Madnine and HaoningW, very nice drawings. Not really much to add but keep going. You're doing the right things.
Ink-apotheosis, nice start! When shading try to pick a light source before you start. What I usually do is decide for example that all my right planes are in the shadow and stick to that.
Marine dragon, I like your portrait but I am going to require more than just a face!
