Looks like I'm first =D can't wait to see everyone's finals, some great looking stuff in the WIP thread.
Little Billy the Changeling didn't want to go to school today.
"Can't" is a coward too lazy to try.
Here's the final. I had fun with this one
Muh name's Boti, use it

This high school kid might look like a harmless loony at first sight. But his long hairs and feminine appearance conceal the hell of a sick sadistic b*stard, who scares the sh*t out his parents and classmates. He have a little hobby - collecting an animal bones. Bird bones are his favourite. They're light and hollow inside. Just like him.
NMEZero gets my vote, it's the cheeky expression on his face that swings it.
Here's my first CHoW.
Haven't had enough time to draw another, better one. But the semester's over now so hopefully there's more time for the next one :-).
My Changeling is a successful tobacco and alcoholic industry loobyist who manipulates politicians to serve unhealthy stuff to teenagers.
Well heres to the first of many ChoWs for me.
This Changeling is in his mid-twenties, just starting his first job in banking and investments. Moving millions and playing with the wealth of others to advance his agenda.
He dresses sharply and is 'just' a guy working in finance. Yet theres something off about him...

Some truly awesome entries this time around!
Great entries !! And mine !
Hello, hope that I'm in time to post for this weeks Chow and also that I am allowed to post directly the final image here.
Its my first post here
I loved this week topic and heres my try
My idea was an evil ballerina, rising star of Moscow Ballet... Incredibly talented dancer, light as a feather. Gravity seems not to exist for her. If there is any other talented dancer who seems to be a competition for her - well, you know, accidents happen.

What a round people!
Yor: simply a great piece, nice classic style and a very interesting character
YouAreNotAlone: Great style and use of transparency, also an intersting character
NMEZero: I love the innocence of the character has a "It wasn't me" expression, simply great.
xbert: sooo, is JD the latest in Male enhancement?
Partisan: awesome work this round, the piece needs some lighter values in the lower half of the image to showcase the character more effectively, doesn't need to be too light, but just a pinch more contrast.
Rachel Pierce: Another cool piece, what through me off is the hand gestures, almost like she karate'd her parents to death.
There are a few submissions this week that really skimmed over the character sheet. I have allowed a number of entires in this week but please remember for next week that a character sheet is not a quick scribble and should show a well thought out design for the character.
Thanks and good luck!
I voted for NMEZero - amazing piece, you captured the "innocence" brilliantly.
Partisan, Xbert, TehMeh you guys are using way too much negative black space. Rendering is cool but that space keeps bugging me and thinking there's way too much of it
Great entries everyone!!
Great theme too!!
My faves are:
Youarenotalone-Love the Mucha inspired design of this piece and the character is cool and hip.
Yor-Love the lightingl. Where do you guys learn to paint like this!? Ugh. Love it.
Partisan-Ditto on the painting/lighting thing. Fabulous. I didn't throw you a vote only because your guy just looks like an elf, I think it's the ears. Great piece though.
I think my piece could have used more saturation when I lool at it in comparison to everyone elses. Gotta work on that.
@Patchworkwolf-I was wondering if I was one of the ones having too little on the character sheet? It does say ' at the very least show a sketch of the front and back'
Just curious where that line is. Thx
