    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.

    cheers,
    jake

    what a round eh?! so many great entries this time.

    Oblio's Notes: - Big thanks to all who managed to put their name in the filename. You have no ideea how much time you save me.
    Welcome to the newcommers!
    The fact that we had SO manny new people on the board it's the reason i went easy. Hell - i had to modify the forum settings since the polls were not accepting more then 30 images.
    Now... the custom here is to select for the poll ONLY the finished entries AND only the ones within a respectable quality level.
    The level is set up by the guest - yet.. i will take the rights to make small adjustments.
    Today - one entry was added despite the request - i figured out that Moreuvian_lx9 posted his final after Cakey sent me his list.

    Ussualy... we need to cut entries. It's just like the pitch for a job.
    I will ask the winners to consider the quality level.
    If you're out the poll - you get some critics - so.. it's a better gain IMO.
    Thank you again for being part of this. I'm not sure if any of you has clicked the banner above - those T-shirts are realy cool - and the money it's for the bandwidh

    I like this round - Poshspice is aiming one more step to the top in chowscars - now that a great battle is ahead at the top.
    MarcoMazzoni is catching up with his last week entry.
    He's our host this week - so.. beware!
    Let's rock an droll over some cool pics.



    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

    POSHSPICE is on the wave - CONGRATULATIONS - what a victory.

    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 - VOTING - 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 - VOTING - 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!

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

    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!

    Here's what I've got so far. I've combined a furisode gown with a Victorian-style high-necked collar ( something to make it nearly impossible to tilt her head down), and threw on some braided epaulets for a more martial feel. Much like Rogzilla, I want this outfit to be excruciating to wear and have it show. I know the ox horn hairstyle is more Chinese, but it reminds me a little of Queen Victoria, so I think it stays. I'm looking forward to inserting a whole bunch of military background. I'm looking to make this look like a propaganda poster.

    Thoughts? Crits?

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

    Update: OK, then. I've started sketching the underdrawing. I'm wondering if I've bitten off more than I can chew with the phalanx of soldiers in the background, but given my overall satisfaction with the project so far, I consider it a challenge instead of a problem. Still, it's kind of making me want to splash out for a nice shiny tablet and take a stab at digital painting ( until they start making poster paints with an UNDO function).

    Update again: Started painting. Flag and sky done in watercolor. I think I'll want to go back in and do it again in poster paint; I don't like the look of the paper texture complicating the image. Other than that, I like where this is going. Great job everyone!

    OK. All done.

    black Queen wip

    firstly may I say congrats to my boy cakey well done man awsome work!

    Ok this is my work in progress, my idea is that the queen is baisically dying, so her husband (the king) before his assination made her these black widow-esqe legs to follow him in to battle.
    Since his death she has proven herself as a worthey leader of her nation, and despite her failing health will always be found at the very front of any skirmish.

    Black widow legs aside i plan to make the most of the victorian/samuarai thing which you can see more of in the second pic. no sword yet either

    excellent entries so far peeps looks like an ace round!

    ok
    this is where Iam at so far guys all wip of course, Iam trying to get a sense of english rose/ war monster going on see what ya think, ill post the old sketches on my sketch book so drop by if you cant remenber what they look like.

    this round is look amazing by the way,and thanks for the kind words

    cheers!
