    THE BLACK QUEEN

    The year is 2025. The Black Queen is the figure-head of the British- Japanese empire known as the GBNR.

    The GBNR are one of 3 super-states at constant warfare with each other. It is the hundredth year since the forming of these states. Our queen is a divine leader as well as a military commander.

    Her appearance should bring together Victorian and traditional Japanese aesthetics but also take into account the 100 years that have passed since the joining of these two cultures.

    Now... concept!

    ______________

    Topic elements:

    1 = divine leader
    2 = military commander
    3 = victorian&japanese mix 100 years later.

    Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
    _____________
    Please try to save your progress - maybe a nice tutorial is comming out.
    BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. The host will make the selection.


    DON'T FORGET YOUR PRIZE! THE WINNER OF THIS ROUND WILL SELECT THE TOPIC OF THE NEXT ONE!

    And will assist me in selecting the entries for the poll. In one week we'll have a new client.Vote him now

    I'm way in. I'm thinking some kind of stripped-down cyberpunk variant of those princesses with the shaved eyebrows you always see in Kurosawa movies ( that always kind of squicks me out).

    Think I might be as well... been a long time away...

    Edit: First rough... She's going to have a lot of art nouveau detailing mixed in with the Japanese stuff. Lots of tightening up to do yet, mainly on the the legs, which look a bit poo... It's a bit rude at the moment, but I shall alter her costume to cover her modesty as befitting a queen. Girls with swords huh? There's a step outside the comfort zone...

    CHOW #64 Guest Host:Cakeypigdog. Topic:THE BLACK QUEEN

    A bit of colour, to get a mood... I feel I'm missing the Victorian element a bit too much at the moment...

    CHOW #64 Guest Host:Cakeypigdog. Topic:THE BLACK QUEEN

    Final pic. I'd love to work on this further and if I get a chance I will, but time is against me for now. Crits and advice very welcome! Some amazing entries this round, and I really look forward to peoples finals! Edit: Altered the face abit more... and gave her a cleavage!

    Worship me with fire and blood; worship me with swords and with spears. Let the woman be girt with a sword before me: let blood flow to my name. Trample down the Heathen; be upon them, o warrior, I will give you of their flesh to eat!

    I'm in! Sounds neat!

    Thumbnail time! Just a couple ideas. I like the one on the right more. The asymmetry is neat. I ultimately want to make the outfit to look like it is REALLY uncomfortable to wear. I started thinking about Victorian and Geisha outfits and how painful they seem. Anyways, crits are welcome and encouraged.

    UPDATE: Added rough pencils. Much better ideas coming through here but now I have a bit more Japanese and want a little more Victorian. OH, and yeah, the proportions are off. :-P Starting on the final pencils soon.

    NOW...WITH SOME COLOR! Unfortunately, this is as far as I am going to be able to go at the moment. I will finish this up later this week but I have some other things I need to take care of. So I would love some comments on it, especially the color. It has been a long while since I have used colored pencils and I like them but I think I may need to learn to paint digitally, the work some of you guys are doing in the computer is blowing my mind!
