Gonna comment tomorrow but i've seen many things i like. Too tired. Arghhrg.
Seeing some really fantastic pieces!
@no name brand - those are fantastic, I love them all!
As for mine...well, designs are done...ish. One week still ahead, lots of room for improvement (thank God) ^.^
no_name_brand - Woah amazing reinterpretation of the wolf! The gas mask is an excellent choice with the long snout-like fashion of it. The fake leg also looks a bit like a wolf's digitigrade leg. Very clever detail! I think that peg-legged Wolf is my favorite (and love that fur collar detail too)
PxelSlayer - Love your smooth style and bold coloration!
Attaching my sheet of silhouettes for Red from this weekend! Seems like I'll have plenty of fodder for a sisterhood of werewolf-fighting Reds. Now, on to high master "Grandmother"!
No Name Brand I think the most right mask looks the most wolf-ish!
They are all very nice!
Do you have some progresspics that you could post? So a mere beginner like me could learn some stuff?
Now crit the shit out of me!
The romance starts to turn bad for Red. Getting more specific with characters too.
Sorry for my bad english but i'am russian

@No Name Brand
Really like the post apocaliptic feel of the guy, but aside from that the snout of the gas mask is a little long I don't get much of a "wolf" vibe from him. What about instead of giving him human legs with boots over his feet give him some backwards-bending wolf legs and exposed feet? Or perhaps a tail? Just some thoughts, the picture looks excellent.
I know you're trying to make it look like she has her arms folded behind her back holding the staff but right now she looks like an amputee. Try to get a quick reference photo from someone so you can get this issue corrected because right now its really detracting from what is otherwise a nice piece.
So many good entries!
Dread_Reaper's (HORRIBLY OUTDATED) Book of Darkness and Stuff
wow, lots of amazing updates from everyone!
heres a rough sketch idea. i think im gonna go futuristic, fantasy on this one. red riding hood is a hunter, and the wolf is the strongest wolf, leading the last wolves against her campaign.
Eyoo update. Working on a diptych kind of thingie, still a lot to do.
Btw: My Father Time CHOW will be in Expose 9 (first timer!), so I would like to thank you all over here at chow (both mods past and present and participants) for making me want to be better all the time and allways inspiring me to do more.
Lots of cool stuff here
I like jigokuen's, Pixeltuner's and MasterTroglodyte's the most.
I probably like jigokuren's the most, I love how dynamic the character looks. The finished picture will look awesome. Good luck to all
wow, congrats Pixeltuner! -thats quite an honor!! by the way, your chow is coming along nicely!
heres a refined sketch, thanks to some help from my boy AustenFM! -and a quick color pass...
NickyBeats: Yeah, I know! I pretty much did a little dance when the e-mail with the news came Now to push myself even further
Last update for today. Put some work in the wolf, decided on a kind of complementary colour-theme. Maybe I'll put some more saturated accents on the wolf as well, dunno yet. Added some graphic elements to give a bit more of a modern icon feel. At least I'm going places on this one, which is good since I'll be gone for about half of the week and therefore don't have much time left.
Paolo13: *does little dance and bows*
You guys are so bloody talented!!! All of you. I love seeing everyones ideas take shape. Slence and Arther Two Sheds are my favourites so far, both completely different styles but each brilliantly executed. Pxelslayer exquisite rendering.
Not sure if I can do anything with this but wanted to get my idea down as it is. I have two more free evenings to work on it.
sketch. legs dont look right arrrrgh
PxelSlayer I really like your character designs! I can't wait to see the finished illustration!
no_name_brand Very cool wolf!
Heyya! Here are some work in progress pictures!
I started later than others, but I think I'll catch up!
The last one is a color test..
Heres my update:
Saleem — try flipping her to see, but I feel like part of it is a balance issue and the flipping will reveal that; the legs "feel" short but I think the figure's fairly proportional. At rough measurement 7 1/2 heads tall... My suggestion is to try and lengthen (however slightly) the lower legs on top of seeing how things looked when they're flipped.
MasterTroglodyte- thank you so much. ur spot on about fliping the image. the legs do look kindo short. ill try to fix now. thanks alot
@ NickyBeats — I'd like to see more reference used for the wolf and "red." I think the presentation is pretty explosive right now but help with the wolf's "facial" features, werewolf-ish shoulders, arms, etc. and the anatomy of your swashbuckling lady would make it pop that much more...
