    If that degree of technical capabilities can't get you a damned job, I think I'm gonna cry.

    All I can say that is they sure look ready for painting.

    Quoted by me :
    "this week I will start fresh, and mon. I will have a character on board , same as tues. and wed, and so on. but I got to say weekends are off limits, there is too much going on"

    That goes for this past weekend. Ha! Ha!

    'stoph: I can totally image you as an angry little man with a mustache, munching on a cookie.haha.
    Today is the day for characters so don't fret I'll give you your damn characters.
    I feel soo used (crys in corner).

    Mono: I started useing painter, but I think I might change over to good old Phototshop.

    Jeri: it's a tough world out there, if you want we can cry together.

    hey Tif.

    I'm gonna be a bastard and crit the heall out of this last one.

    This is the first character in this thread that is in an action pose and it is also the stiffest of them all. For the First two you made, waht would otherwise be boring poses interesting by giving them character; the attitude on the girl and the dainty contrapasto on the elf dude. For this last one, you had a lot of potential to make it even more lively becasue it is an action pose. I would pull the arms back more and exagurate the pose to thrust his chest out more, it would work better and an action pose. Then you have all that cloth and hair that you can make wild and add to the action, but instead they are fairly stiff too (sepecially the hair - what's up with that wacky defined shape hair???). and the third thing i'd add is way more flies. That there seems like one of the central themes of this character, the flies. so why not go wild, make them snake around him like you're doing with the cloud thing, but exagurate their flow and work them into the compositon more to get rid of all that empty space.

    it's late, i hope my ranting actually makes sence.

    Woah! Nice looking! I don't know if it's just me, or does the outer bands on the horns go into his jaw? Right in front of his ears? I like the feathers. I see hes been playing around with blood or something with his hands. Eeevil... Or just wild.

    (Oh, and by "nice looking", I mean really great! I love the first two ones!)

    Tiffany- great seeing you again, and peeking inside your sketchbook. I feel I understand a little more about your ability and sensibilities.
    I said it before...I think you are a great draftsman (draftswoman?) - and Dan is right on the money...let your linework shine through on those paintings (same goes for you Amish!) - It's just so seductive...
    Arkady gave a great crit on the last one...alot of good points. I think the character is cool enough to really put some effort into. To add to what he said, when you push those arms back and push out the chest I would let his abdomen sink in a bit, causing the ribcage to stand out as well. just a thought
    Also...I think one of the reasons the first one is so successful is the placement of the figure on the page. She has this 'regal' pose and she's central to the viewer...giving her almost an iconic look. Even in drawings the design of the page and placement of shapes is really important. Just another thing to be aware of.
    quick question: are you looking for more "concept design" work or illustration? just curious
    You're awesome...can't wait to see more.

    i agree with amish. although this is a technically more difficult design, you've lost some structural integrity. what made the first two sick was the mood you've protrayed in the character. In this latest piece, you've lost rhythm. its seems stiff.His ribcage is slightly tilted to his left that makes his pose a bit off balance.
    I'm digging the design sense and posture.
    great ellipses, form.
    Well done.

    Hi Tiff. I basically agree with Amish and Loomer on the pose of the most recent work. I think if you pull the right arm back significantly it would line with the other better (I don't think the left is off much really). The neck also feels out of whack with the line of the back, perhaps Tilting the the head up and the neck (or whole body?) back a bit more will be more convincing. Oooh, and definitely more flies. Having them stream out out in an interesting shape could really help the composition. Just my opinions.

    Really love the first two, esp the iron maiden. Very nice. Keep it up (insert whip-crack onomatopoeia)!

    hey everyone!

    L: thankx dude. your the shiznick!!

    Kanji2000: hahah! your the bully of this thread,lol.

    Arkady: whoo!! ho!! you really ripped me a new one, but you are right on a lot of things. I was unsatisfied with this one for some reason, and even with your crit. I feel like it just doesn't have the soul the other ones have. thanx dude for spending time to give me a good crit. I appreciate it for sure .

    Serpian: Hey thanx! the band you are talking about is supposed to be wrapping around another band. I will see if I can make that more clear. (thats me thinking)

    Scott: mm yeah dude you guys are giveing me a lot to think about. Draftsman, Draftswoman,...potatoes, patatoes. Doesn't matter to me .
    I'm looking for anything cool I can get my grubby little hands on. But really I am doing these chararcters so I can possibly do cards or covers for Wizards. Just trying to do more Fantasy stuff so I will get work. thanx for your nice words... your awesome as well

    Mono: I always like your crits., I gotta say. ok... so the ribcage, I was staring at it for a bit, and yes his left rib is wonky and too low, thanks for pointing that out . And thanks for your nice words

    I will have to practice my gestures. Truthfully that is what I'm the worst at. So I'm glad you guys are all on my asses, man Illustrators are soo awesome!! I feel a overwehlming love for you guys right now, hahah sorry, is that wierd?( maybe it's the caffeine talking , lol (awkward silence).............................
    Anyway...I will have to start painting these suckers soon. But really I'm glad you guys all stopped by here again, thanks for helpin a sista out, peace!
