Sorry, but I can't say I'm much of a fan of the colours on this one--they seem very unnatural. Greyscale looks fantastic though. Her knees are delicious!

thanks Andrew! yes, thats why i said preliminary colors and there is nothing to be sorry about, that was a valid critique! I toned down the pinks and purples and gave it a warmer overlay color, hope it looks better now
I just lost my connection with this book a few weeks ago,
sorry about that, and now that I saw your reply,
I remembered all this. But maaan, your updating rhythm is
just merciless. I went through, all that I missed lately, and
all that I can say is that whatever you are doing, you are
doing it right. What should I criticize, when I am on a lower
level with painting, so I guess, I will just observe your
amazing products and try to suck up all the tricks and
knowledge that I can. Drop by my sketchbook more in the
future if you wish, and share some secrets, you are always
Keep working hard.
I like the breast focal point. Very focaly ^_^
thank you so much! i really love reading your thoughtful comments! ill be sure to drop by
thanks dude! i fixed it by shifting the nose a tad, hope it works
thats how i like my focal points ;3
haha, you can use your imagination for that ;D
thanks, glad to hear it!
wow, thanks! i wasnt sure if the colors were working too well but after reading your comment i got more confident!
Last update before showing the finished version, still got a lot to clean up and define, also needs some fixing up, especially some of the faces and some adjusting too! Also here are the finished horsemen for the ChoW, its not all as refined as i would have wanted, but i got sick tired of looking at them, so i call finished

it's so hard to not fall behind in this sketchbook. everytime I come here you finished at least one piece and are already well on your way with the next! it's amazing-
also you're one of the VERY few artists who can go from greyscale to color with such vivid results!
and four high quality entries for this round of chow! this is getting ridiculous!
seriously love your interpretation of the horsemen!
Such a great sketchbook, I particularly love the smooth rendering you seem to be able to effortlessly achieve. It looks brilliant, I wish I could do it. Just a small remark about the big picture - the lady's teeth are anatomically problematic, or, perhaps, are too white all the way. Can't wait to see more!
wooooah loads of new updates! Some seriously awesome stuff too, you are obviously working very hard. I love the horsemen above for CHOW. Actually one of my favourite bits about these last pieces is the environment of the character in the bottom left. great work with that water and reflections.
I have just one suggestion for you: be careful not to make a clear definition between breast and chest on the upper parts of the breast. The "line" between these regions fades away and perhaps it continues a little high. It gives a bit of a look of implants.
Other than that its great so keep up the hard work.
The She-demon will be awesome. I like the prominent cheek bones on those boys. Reminds me of Milo Manara's style. Also her face is waaay better now. Couple of things caught my eye though:
-Her right arm. At first looks like the forearm is going back in space. Details tell that it's coming towards us (the overlapping in joint and the orientation of the hand). Try to stress the point that it's facing us (cast shadow on the boys arm or something)
-Pit of her neck also looks a bit weird.
-And finally the ear looks a bit pasted on the hair.
Looking forward to seeing it finished!
Awesome design on the horses. Scary as hell

Love the horseman! Cant believe how much you've improved!
Horsemen look soooo excellent!
I have to admit...I liked the first face on the woman the best. She looks kind of bland now, is she meant to be sinister? She seems to be loving, but with horns and pointy teeth. (this is just my humble opinion). Nonetheless, it's an excellent drawing overall!
Beautiful work! nice rendering with the figures and horses! looking forward to seeing more!
