Remember Dan's advice. Let the drawing work for you. You're starting to overmodel and loose the drawing in the face.
P.S. Congrats on the new nephew!

listen to elwell's advice!
the mouth has lost something already, maybe the little curl on our right?
she looks like my ex-girlfriend now.. always pouting!
the green bg is really working well.
try to bring some of those greens into the shadow areas.
remember, the only thing that allows us to see any detail at all in the shadow is reflected light...
reflected green light in this case.
bring some of that bg color into the figure will add a nice harmony.
looking good though!
is this digital?
(thats unusual right?)

first of all: congrats for beeing an aunt now. I know how you must feel, I became an uncle a few months ago (my sister got twins!).
I really like the design of this fighting elve. For the hair (which as far as movement goes is pretty cool,) I'd agree with kinjark. If you do it a bit more detailed it would really enhance.
I would not agree with Elwell about "Her entire action is thrusting forward...", I did japanese sword fighting for about 3 years and think that the position of her body is perfectly believable. The upper body can lean forward, while the arms cut back, so the position of her hair is absolutely correct, when this represents the moment just after having made these sword cuts. (At the beginnig of the cutting action she is supposed to have leaned even a bit more forward)But concerning the slice you should change it as Kanji2000 proposed ("It's plane should be almost parallel to the ground..."), because this would be the logical position of the blade.
Otherwise it's really cool and I hope to see it coloured.

1. Congrats on that baby! Babies are awesome...and small and warm
2. sorry I haven't replied here in a bit. I have been checking, but I am just SOOOO busy I couldn't possibly fit 2 minutes in to write
3. The old short stocky dude IS the best character I have ever seen. You should be painting HIM right now.
4. I really like the character with the arms stretchedback and the pronounced cameltoe...it's ugly and sexy all at once. Cool face.
5. The painting is coming along real sweet. Speaking of sweet, you should check out his concept work ...www.justinsweet.com. This piece has a little of that feeling to it - and he might be good to look at. I'm glad you are letting those wicked pencils shine through. Shine on grrrrl
6. Did I mention I love that stocky old character? I think I might have to do a version of him...

i like shiny objects. Make that armour pop. more intense reflective lighting please!
October 20th, 2005 #78
man o man Tiffany, is she turning out awesome!!! hows about some closeups of that armor.
I say you put some blues into that dress to give it more velvety feel. kinda like you have creeping in the armor. (in the watercolors i've been doing lately i use raw umber together with ultramarine blue to create rich darks, and a light ultramrine blue, and even some violet, blending into that dark creates really beautiful highlights) and i say put some more of them blues in the armor as well. also play around with some more drastic highlights to give the armor more shine.
i kinda envisioned a purpleish VIOLET dress (violet being a historically regal color) i'm not saying yuo should go that route but i would like to see you get rid of all that green in the dress. makes it blend into the background too much. (hey i just thought of this - you know that the complement to green is red and there's nothing hotter, in my opinion, than really rich, deep red velvet - hmm??? )
