    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

    I'll post the OC file later tonite so you can see me strugling with the pose.

    Hey there! back on track!
    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....
