Couldn't finish it in time but here is what I had so far.

WOW, the entries here are just swapping in and they are the quality stuff! The gourmet sh*t, if you will I was going to start commenting on pieces, but then I scrolled down and came across so many more great pieces... I think it is REALLY ABOUT TIME THAT CHOW GETS A STAR FOR ITS WINNER (like COW does)!!!

yikes..seems like I mite be losing my bet ...
gotta gotta get more time! some one let me know when the end time is...cus I see theres still entries today...
just need a bit more time.......
Nice piece. Really came alive since the initial sketch. Strong "concept."
So...much goodness...in this thread...so much...overwhelming...going into creative...overload....
'Cept I will say that Main Loop's is my official fave. Beeeeuteeful. Stunning. Colors, comp...mood...everything.
I posted another WIP to my entry on Page 1. Don't know if this week is closed, or if I can even finish today, but I'm stealing time whenever I can to work on it. So much good work from so many people. Congrats to all!
Nice piece. The white linework on the wing is a little distracting, though.
Great mood and details. Face looks a bit masculine is my only crit.
Nice work. I personally find the heart a bit much. It becomes the focus (red tends to do that!) of the piece, and I think its strong enough without that.
Great job with the concept!
Just so strong, really. Wonderful design.
Love this one, too. The firetips are a little distracting. I liked it a lot before them. Perhaps if they were used judiciously they would have more singular impact?
joe12south - Just checked out your image again and you might want to check your Valkyrie's right leg. She's in a sharp angled kneel but it looks like her thigh goes down too far... if you have time check out this reference: http://www.eastern.edu/athletics/Che...ages/kneel.jpg
It might just be that her back thigh is going too low.
Doh! You're so right! Thank you. I'll fix as I paint.
now i gess its too late but i was drawing this lady and i thought i migth as well introduce her to ya....
not in time to paint you my dear...
please say what you feel about her....critiques are welcome too.
PeterJohn: Yeah dude, pencil to digital, just like how you handled yours if I'm not mistaken. Lookin good, brotha.
Flood of awesome entries in the last 2 pages. But I'm with Min: Lets wrap up the show, ladies! Looking forward to the next topic
I Quit I got homework to do plus school in the mourning and because of my lack of photoshop skills I'm out. Since I have like 8 commision works to do before schools out, I'll see you when summers up or when I've got the time. Dammit All!!! But I'll definently put my sketches up so look for me
lukavi - I think Penumbra mentioned it earlier but there was some definite (good!) Amano vibe coming from your Valkyrie. Good stuff, I'd like to give the method a go some time.
Posted my final painting on page 1. Didn't get the chance to work it all to the same degree as her face, but this is my first finished digital painting and I'm just not fast enough yet! I had a lot of fun with my first CHOW. Gotta get faster!
P.S. As a CD, I just couldn't help notice how so many of you overpowered your piece with great big clunky type at the bottom. Please, don't ruin your great paintings with terrible design!
