@Tenpeoplez- nice idea with the armor. I especially like the helmet guy. Not sure why.
@ Marco Lombardi – yes it is risky huh? Heh. Well, if you’re gonna chase storms you’ll have to catch m, right? On your dilemma, I’d suggest working on both side by side a bit, and then choose. The small guy looks more original to me, but he’s not sitting in his contraption yet.
@Adreinne- I think you’re doing it right.
@st0neface- very nice sketches. Though in the 2nd one the umbrella is… inconveniently placed…
@-Clare Belshaw yeah that bird mask! hard though. So is your mask btw. To pull that off, I think you’ll need some reference.
@MasterTroglodyte- love the face. The rest could be anything.
@Kindcoffe- the last sketch it looks like the girl has 4 arms… isn’t that a great idea?
@DijitaKid- ouch. No legs. I’d like to hear the story of that accident…
@Wuggy- not your fault but I feel like I’m seeing this eyepatch guy a lot I like the glove though. And I guess the guy behind it has to be sturdy. He could be a little less generic I guess? Overall it looks good though.
@Anaiira- haha. Well, I got feelz now.
@Good Soup- I think we kinda had the same idea. Nice sketches; the left arm on the right figure is a bit weird.
@Dayle- bicicle! Nice idea!
@Sorrow Cow- ah! It almost looks like he’s going fishing for lightning.. and I sooo like the idea im sorry I didn’t do that.
@Veriveri- its funny! You’ll need to do something with the legs though.
@revelations- cool pose. The ankle-knee relation on the right leg seems a little off. The should be jutting from opposing sides.
@Stringfellowart- oh dear! Dumb kids. LOVE it!
@doganoztel- its beautiful. You’re aware this is not the final thread, right? Its not up yet.. also, you’ll need to add stuff like user name and chow number. Its at the start of this thread.
Just 2 or 3 half-hours session on this.. still haven’t dropped any.

full steam ahead!

Here is an updated sketchy wip!
May 9th, 2014 #45
Here is the latest. I'll be fixing up the leg and finishing up the rendering.
@ashess Yeah I see what you mean, I think I'll extend his leg out more, fully onto the platform. I'll work on it for the next update.
@doganoztel I LOVE IT.

Here's my WIP. Critiques are welcomed!

@revelations: I really am liking the coloring for this. I didn't expect it to be so bright
@-Slacker-: i think your outfit design is dead on for steampunk and the posture is really great too! I'm curious to how the device would look like!
Here's my second wip: trying to still decide.
I wanted to make the storm chaser device the main feature for these designs.

@Ashess: You're absolutely right, the guy is still too generic. I've been racking my brain over the design. I still don't really have a great idea where to go with it. In terms of your thumbnails, I like the helmet on #1, but I can't read it too well other than that. I really do like the idea of incorporating a kite, though.
@Revelations: When you post your WIP's, it might be beneficial to size them down. It's a lot less arduous to read the design when you don't have to scroll to see the entire picture.
Anyway, as I said, I'm still trying to work out the design, and I'm still not sure.

this iS what i have so far. its quite simple actually. i imagined that lighting is like a big whale that needs to be caught. hence this guy is a sort of harpooner, native american style. he throws the harpoon towards the clouds (!) and attracts the lighting which hits the harpoon. the electricity channels through the cable and is transported and stored in the "bottles" of conductive liquid on the belt through the "wheel/coil" thing in the middle.
most of the entries are crazy awesome btw...
any feedback is appreciatted now that i still havent colored anything.....

Update? *shrug*, at least it's not so... what it was before. I'm really not a fan of where it actually ended up going, so I might just finish him off for the sake of completion & practice and move on to a different drawing. Or just stop, I haven't really decided.
I've decided he's a cloud chaser who has gone insane with trying to collect more energy, it's an adrenaline rush that always needs to be fed. Crits are always welcome.
And now for some unsolicited comments!
@peterhurman: Cool design, interesting antennae thing in the back. The most obvious thing is maybe having a more consistent light source? Judging from his face, it's coming from the top right, but for the rest of his gear (& esp. boots), it's harder to tell.
@clouddreamer: I really like this direction. There's so much energy flowing through. The upper shoulder muscles are reading a little weirdly and the belt seems flat somehow, but I'm sure that's stuff that'll come out with colours.
@Wuggy: I feel like a jerk and that I somehow stole the intent behind your design or something. Um, more specifically though, I really dig the silhouette of your dude. When I squint at him, he looks really cool. In the way that you've done the lineart though, he looks tense and a little bit hesitant. The way his posture is, his spine looks like it's a little concave and his shoulders look like they're coming forward and he's hunching a little bit. Of course, I could just be misreading it, but yeah. I generally find that if I don't get the posture of what I want right, then no amount of fidgety gadgets will get me the look I want.
@Kindcoffee: THAT HOOD. I want that hood. I also like the face on the pants. I like the second silhouette and pose better but there's something interesting about the design of the first one.
@Slacker: It's interesting steampunk-wise. I don't really see a lot of the whole lightning catcher yet, but I'm sure it'll get there. Critique wise, her right arm seems a little short.
@revelations: I think it's a function of having a really really large canvas, but his torso seems a little long. It reads like you're going for a kind of worm's eye perspective (or at least one that's lower than standard eye level) and while his legs and right hand read really well for that, the torso looks off. Love the pants though.
@Ashess: Aww thank you. You're (much) too kind. I really like the kite one. It looks really cool.

ill provide feedback again on all this awesome stuff soon... right now, I'm just gonna answer and give an update.
@wuggy- yeah; that’s always hard. You could try and start with a backstory, like did this guy make that glove, or is he hired. How did he get this job and such. Or, you could dontrast with the glove. Like, it seems to suggest a strong character is needed to hol dit, so the guy holding it could be really thin and frail looking instead. On the thumbs, ye I figured I needed to improve on that. How is this version?
@anaiira- yes I liked the kite too. But I was stumped on what to do with it further, so dropped that one.
