    Have a long weekend, so wanted to make a start on this.
    Would like a second pair of eyes on the anatomy of this please. I want to get those legs sorted out before I put the clothes and things on. - Mohawk will be added later too. If it sin't clear she is walking down some steps, probably with a throne behind her.

    I'm looking forward for the finished one.
    I really liked your fallen angel with the canon!

    That angel is another soul lost in the hellish graveyard of paintings I still have to finish.

    sulksal - background might be too much

    abrazuno - background might be too much also... Just when I decided to get rid of my background, everyone starts doing it lol...

    tchuk - great design... the chestplate is sort of confusing though...

    moirae - have you tried rotating the figure to a different angle? I could already see that you might have to fight through foreshortening issues with the hand and feet

    started from scratch and going for a different approach.... hopefully I finish

    Moirae - I feel like the the torso is a bit thick/long when compared to the thickness of the legs, arms, and size of the head. While the proportions could be technically correct, my eye is registering something as a little off. You could probably also thicken the legs and arms a tad while enlarging the head just a bit.

    Al3x - Looks good. Might want to watch the angle of the feet, or at least define where they connect to the legs a bit more.

    Billakong - A little color in the skin would help unify the piece a bit more. It's a very stark contrast.

    Discorave - loving it, just beware the CHOW rules.

    Mudbreath - Cool! Just watch his head. Feels a bit small.

    Justinchambersart - Welcome! Watch the way her right arm behaves. It's off. Check the pose in the mirror if you need to.

    Raganosis - Looking cool, but beware the CHOW rules in regards to how much of the character is shown.

    Abrazuno - Looks nice!

    Tchuk - Sweet!

    edgarej - Feels very classical. Even if he's a child, watch the head size. Just a tad smaller might be good.

    I know the background might be a bit much, but one of my weaknesses is placing characters in a setting, which is why I want to practice it. I'll work on it.

    Yes, her legs does kind of feel skinny, specifically the muscles on the lower right leg (whatever those muscles are called). It feels like it needs to bulge out more... Looking good though....


    I think I'm close to calling this finished... I want mine kind of loose and I feel like I might overdo detailing (a bad habit I have) and kill the looseness of it. What do you all think?

    Ok, still have to figure out about the wear. She definitely get some kind of shiny armor too....
    The legs aren´t look correct yet.

    @edgarej: Thanks you! I like the costume a lot! The facial expression is a bit off for an emperor... for me it shows not enough confidence!

    @Moirae: Legs look alright to me!

    @xaya

    I don't know what to change the expression to, but you did make me realize that the head is still too big and that the neck is off, so thanks for making me pay attention to that again. Looking good on the colors.

    Xaya: That head is super tight! I can't work that way, I have to leave the rendering the head until last, I think because the head is a major focal point and I get lazy if it is finished and start messing up things in the rest of the pic like drawing hands back to front. Yours has a lot of potential I think.

    Moirae: You picked a hard pose, but I think the legs aren't too skinny.

    I started to paint mine
