    Tiffany,

    I agree with the crits of the last one. The character concept is really interesting, but the drawing isn't selling it. I did a quick and dirty sketch to show how you could really push the action.

    Slow down...Everyone just slow down a bit...Don't let our comments get to you...Your work is fantastic...Concepts are very fresh...You've just made some really cool stuff...Now stop, take a step back, and breathe...What everyone said was very good, and very helpful...Now, take the time to consider each one...The first two were great because not only were they conceptually great, they were also architechturally sound...And by that I mean they are anatomically correct, the placement on the page made them compositionally sound...

    Now, the third one is a beautiful concept...Evryone agrees though, that it doesn't carry the same impact...Hmmm, I wonder...If you draw a line from fingertip to fingertip, and then another line from the top of his head to the bottom, you'll see there's almost no arch...His whole body is tilted, which gives the illusion of movement, but the stiff body reminds me of a tilted cross...

    How about drawing those same lines on a separate sheet of paper...Now imagine what lines would be more interesting...The tilt isn't winning me over...how about making him vertical, and then arching his back so that he's looking straight up...I agree that the arms can bend back a little more, which will naturally force his chest out...

    When drawing flies, it might be interesting to follow a corkscrew formation, like DNA, flowing like a ribbon around his body, starting from his open mouth of course...Before doing all this though, draw the basic lines that the path of the body, and flies, would follow...These action lines will already alert you to how the piece flows overall...Get my drift???

    And no, I'm no bully...I just growl alot...gggrrrrr...And that was for making our mouths water so much by promising a character a day, and then leaving us wanting more...

    More power to you...We all love your work...

    so i tried to do a version of your character last night using my own suggestions and it's a lot harder then it sounds.

    I changed up the pose a bit (quite a lot actually). Hope its ok to post it here. You haven't replied to my PM:

    **ELVES**painting characters from last week!** NEW WORK! + TUTORIAL

    If her hair were even longer it would start to suggest wings.

    Very vampira..I like the pose alot...and her outfit..
    Ok- I'm just gonna say it..she's kinda hot.

    - Tristan has an interesting idea with the wings. I kinda like the black graphic shape the hair suggests. I might throw a thin hair line in here or there.
    I'm diggin this one ...solid drawing.

    i have to mention something. you have a knack of rhythm in your work which im a big fan off. Rhythm adds life to a piece. Can you show any gesture drawings? i'd love to see those. (30sec-3mins?)

    Great stuff...Pay particular attention to her left foot...It seems pointed in a little too much...Point it a tad toward the center...Just a tad...Otherwise, another excellent piece...

    I agree with Mono...Would love to see your gesture life drawings...

    That pose is just brilliant, you handled is so friggin well!

    Only complaint is that her left hand is rather flat and unclean compared to the rest of her body. But seriously, this one is just....hot damn!!

    Brilliant! I love that hair! Although her right foot seems to be disappearing. Is it just me or am I always pointing out that things disappear? But it's really good, this is the stuff i come to CA for.

    hey everyone!

    Thanks for stopping by again .

    Elwell: thanks for that sketch, thats awesome and it helps a lot, thank you! wings, ey?! could be...

    Kanji2000: hey man thanks for the support, and crit. I was just jokeing about you being a bully, I don't mind that you growl! it adds sound effects to your posts . so grrrrr! all you want. yeah I think your right about the foot, thanx!

    Mono: haha!! well.. I looked in the mirror a lot, and looked in anatomy books to get the legs right, my mirror is only a small one. Yeah I will post some gesture stuff I have to go digging in my closet for them though, and they are probably super old, but I will post them for sure .

    Scott: sex sells! haha! it's funny because I had my mirror in front of me while I was on the computer(just a face mirror) and I stretched and saw myself, and then I got the idea for her. Not to sure what you mean by thin hair line here and there, like thin hair strands? in the hair shape?

    Chingwa:

    JERI: thanx dude!! you make me smile are you talking about the hand with the blood on it?

    Serpian: thanx for stopping by again! and thanks for the nice words. her foot is supposed to be behind her other foot, but it might look correct once I change the foot that is showing .

    e n d e r: hey thanx dude for the support, I'll try to keep goods ones a coming....

    I call this one old man doll 10-11-05

    So you guys ready for the best character you have ever seen? The one that beats all these peon character I did, well here you go.....

    Ok so by now you have already seen it, lol. Um.. well I had a pretty bad day, and me and this oldman doll type thing had gone through a lot together. We started out doing the jig, then we settled down a bit and took out our hammer and posed like a strong dwarf, but... that still wasn't cuttin it, so we decided to put our foot on a bucket, but we both decided that the bucket really was stupid looking so we threw that away, and so on, an so on untill we got completely frusterated and settled into doll form, hahahah!!! oh man sorry guys today was a BAD day for anything remotely creative. So enough of this jibber jabber... I hope you got a good laugh and an even better surprise, lolol! ENJOY!!

    That dwarf has the whole bodybuilder with a really big head thing going on. I havent studied much in the way of dwarven anatomy but I'm pretty sure they are generally more stocky, Blockish, somethingish, whatever.
    As for the vamp something a bit odd is going on with the head and left arm. The chin seems to be cutting in on the arm. Of course when I sit here and try the arm/head pose it all works out, but for some reason it still bothers me a bit in the drawing. Dunno maybe I'm just dumb.
    I do love your drawings though.

    Look foward to sketching/painting/whatevering with you in the near future.

    Dang Poise just plain BEAUTIFUL!!!

    All the pieces are great.I love your pencilwork.

    To be honest with you I've been wanting to do a vampirella type painting for a while and it won't be any time soon. My problem in this area is originality. Every image I think of has a FRAZETTA feel to it. Thats not a bad thing but its not a good one either unless you are FRAZETTA.
    Your VAMPI drawing goes to show that those great vampi poses (images) are not all taken I just have to get off my duff and think of one. GREAT WORK, I love that picture.

    see ya,Bruce

    ok here is another one. But I think her right arm might be funky I'm not too sure, so if any body has any ideas on it, or I'm just tired and it's fine let me know. Also I'm sorry guys but no character tomorrow I'm am leaving at the butt crack of dawn for a wedding in Wisconsin. Next week I am going to paint all these bad boys, and do all the fixer upers. So I guess farewell untill mon. Enjoy!

    Although I like the hair in and of itself, I'm not sure it works with this pose. Her entire action is thrusting forward, and the hair doesn't go with that. You could either modify the hair to go with the pose, or modify the pose (from hips down) to go with the hair. (Or neither...feel free to ignore me completely )

    Her rib cage is a little massive, and her trunk is a little short, which combine to make her a bit manly. You could trim back the shoulder blade under her extended arm and bring her crotch down slightly. (Speaking of the crotch, the cameltoe's a little much.)

    The positioning and foreshortening of the rear arm doesn't look quite figured out yet.

    The sword in her near hand seems dinky, and the design is sort of plain. In fact the whole costume design is a little blah. Maybe give her some scarves or a loincloth over that unitard to compliment the action of the hair?

    I really can't say much bad about this. I really like it. I think it's one of your best ones and for the time you are putting into them I feel they are even more impressive. The only critiques I have of this image are that the sword in her right hand just doesn't look that well done when conpaired to the rest of the work. Also her lower lip is very large. I think it helps to emphasise here snarl but it just seems a bit over the top to me. Thats really more a matter of taste though and I don't think it really hurst the overall impact of the drawing.

    Get a knife, imagine a scary looking something in front of you, slice it through the air, and stop...Look at yourself in the mirror...Do you see your hand???

    After making a horizontal cut, the blade should have followed the arc of the cut...It's plane should be almost parallel to the ground...I can understand if this was way after the act of cutting, but then it loses it's movement...If this is the beginning of a slice, then her palm should face up...

    Her right wrist is pointed down, while her left is pointed up in relation to the forearm...They should be the same, or close to the same...

    Otherwise, another good sketch...

    great concepts. really, i cant wait to see them painted. the last one, my favorite, bugs me just slightly. it is so well drawn and convincing, except for her hair. to me it looks like you attempted to capture her darting from right to left, and also just at the point when she is about to dart or lunge back to the right. its confusing! her arms are stretched back hard as if she’s about to charge full throttle forward, yet her hair isn’t receiving any of that shock. hair is not that stubborn. the way it looks to me now is like she’s colliding with stiff ribbons of her own hair. ouch! If she was about to lunge forward then it should begin to scrunch up near the scalp, as oppose to being pulled so harsh by the first dart. then again if she was still sliding across from right to left then it would be more convincing if maybe an oblique plane under her feet was there to show her movement. her facial expression is also stunning by the way.

    MY SISTER JUST HAD A BABY BOY!!!!!!!!

    I wish I was there to see her push the sucker out. she was about 3 weeks early. I was going to fly there and see the birth, but oh well.

    well, I just had to tell someone and no one was answering their damn phone.

    I'm soo excited!!!

    K. back to painting. I will post my painted character tonight, but I most likey won't have it finished untill tomorrow.

    Elwell: Hey man! thanks for stopping by again, I always appreciate your crits. Yeah I'm not too sure about the arm either, and the sword I can definitley design better, thanks for pointing that out, the loin cloth idea is really a good idea, because I like the hair, and I was drawing her like she was a warrior orc, getting ready to do some dirty ground sword fighting in a windy battle, lol. So I 'm thinking the cloth blowing forward will add to the wind movement, thanks for giving the suggestion. Oh! and you don't like the cameltoe? I thought I was doing all you guys a service? lol! friggin cameltoes, you gotta luv em!!

    DSillustration: thanx Dan!! I'm glad you like the cameltoes! and... the expression lol!! you rock the Kasba!!

    Unit18_Nate: thanks for stopping by yes I think you are right along with Tristen, the swords are a bit boreing. the lip I like. I think since it is a small picture you might be mistakeing the shadow under her lip as part of it. when I paint it later, the lip will be in it's proper place, and if you still don't like it, you are free to rag on the lip all you want, and say "I just hate that friggin lip" or "man that friggin lip blow my %&#@' zzz" or any such phrase you choose to slander my good name with.
    haha! all joking aside I really do appreciate your crit. thank you!

    Kanji2000: yeah! I totally agree with you! man I told everyone I'm bad at gesture. ok so yes I need to change that, thank you!

    kinjark: hey again! ok so I read your crit. like, I don't know, 5 or 6 times. I'm not sure what you mean by right to left movement. but here is what she is doing, and I probably need to add some blood to show more of the action. But she just cut someone, with her knife like a slash scissor cut.The wind is blowing forward to add chaos, and creating a symbolic hair shape to extend her growl to the enemy. haha! does that make sense?
    Thank you for your crit and nice words I will keep reading your post, maybe i'm missing something.

    k guys so I will post my painting here soon. it won't be done, but that way I can get your guys opinions, I really appreciate everyones post, thanks again dudes!!
