    Hah! Unfortunately, my server/website is down and I don't know when I'll be getting everything back. (long story) I suppose this is why Manley implemented the attaching images deal. I don't think you can comment on them proper like I had been doing though. Either way I'll go back and add them when I have time.

    Here's some life work, a Pteradactyl fencer, and my sketch for the Nov 1 event today. I'll put up the finished version onces its uhh... finished.

    Really nice SP, blue. You look like a spaceship captain with that neatly trimmed beard.

    Loooove the pterodactyl sketch! I think his legs are a bit off and teh feet too. I would give him more animal-like feet. Like dogs, where they stand on their toes and their tarsals are all elongated.

    Yeah I had a hard time changing the fencers feet and feet position into weirdo pteradactyl kind.

    Website is down so all my old images are gone for now. Total bummer and I don't feel like uploading them all to CA. Anyway, here's a portrait I did today experimenting with opacity via Wacom pen. I think I'm quitting on this one but I'll start another soon.

    In a wiser move, I'm going greyscale. I'm too rusty for colour, and even at my oiliest I'm not skilled enough to do colours proper. Here's my first WIP. I'm trying to avoid eye-dropping myself as much and trying to not overblend, leave it more brushy.

    I'm having troubles rendering les Breastes. I'm mainly worried with the form right now, I might attempt the texture of the shirt later.

    edit: 3rd WIP added

    its looking good dude, one big thing i see is that her left eye is pulling a paris hilton and it looks off. Your coloring looks good except on her lips, the left side looks like it gets bigger

    I think you've got all the basic shapes down on the girl. Even the bewbs look just fine to me Now, just take some time and render away with details.

    I messed with her eye some and rendered her boobs more. Her jacket and the right hand have also been rendered. I'm getting there. I'm worried about fucking up everything with the hair.

    edit: Messed with stuff here and there. Working on the jeans.

    edit2: removed previous 2 WIPs, I plan on making a gif afterwards anyway. I did the jeans and all that's left is the hair. I put it off until now and I'm really afraid to fuck it all up now.

    edit3: last WIP gone too. Here's my current revision and the greyscaled photo I'm drawing off of. I'm looking at it now and I'm seeing a lot more differences. I'm going to keep working on it, discouraged as I may be. I'm mainly going to concern myself with fixing the smile now and finishing the hair obviously. The lower left shoulder and smaller inside of the right-jacket I don't think I'll get around to.

    edit4: Almost done? Help?

    edit5: trying to break it now

    edit6: I guess I'm done now. Now on to other projects! Here's the final and I'm going to try and upload a gif or swf of all the WIPs together, those are fun. The gif is above the limit and I don't think we can upload gifs. OK, link to the .swf here! http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j1...ech/_eaWIP.swf

    yep easy to get distracted withthe bells and whistles and not think about the art. BTW you should try to paint your GF from life rather than photo... it'll have less of that stiff plasticine look about it and more feeling. If you can get her to put up with it

    more Art....faster!

    That one's a huge improvement, dig the rendering on the jeans. A problem is the sharp and dark lines on her face, it brings out parts a bit too much and doesnt seem natural.

    I LOOOOVE how the girl came out. The hair, face, and clothing looks beautiful. But those hands need some help! I know hands are horribly difficult, but zoom way into your reference photo, and (as hard as it is not to) try NOT to think of them as hands so your brain can use the reference better. Yeah, I know I know yada yada, but it will work if you can get it down right. Some people flip the reference over and their art, and try to draw it upside down so that they can get down the accuracy better.
