Haven't really thought too deeply into the story yet, was just trying to get a little bit of a feel for her background thoughts. I thought I would have her be a monk/preistess? of a nearly dead religion. She very idealogically inflexible and very rigidly good. (Please, play away with her)
I think the reason she would be evil (since we are supposed to make an evil portrait of the same character) would be that she mistakenly thinks herself SO morally superior and SO religiously fervent that there would be no way she can be corrupted... So she messes with some kind of dark minotaur magical item, thinking she can control it (for the good of the world or the group or whatever) and it twists her.
Edit: maybe the nearly dead religion she is head of had a huge goal of beating back the minotaur and they have failed horribly (obviously LOL). So she has a major grudge on many levels. Her fighting style I'm thinking is going to be very hand to hand and light. Um. My brain's still working I'll come up with more But in any case, she would definitely serve as a scout for the group.
Thanks, really having issues today with getting her body right. Every pose I try she just looks too rigid. I will try one more like you just posted. You know, like she's kneeling to get a better look at tracks or something. oooooh maybe she has a short spear. XD cool.
Thanks for helping me get my brain going lol, I have a full day to work on this exclusively and I wanted to give it as much attention as I could.
Gonna change her face and give her more of an expression too methinks.

good ones!! maybe I will try to do some dynamic poses(jump, fight this kind of thing) to help you drawing skinny ladies is IMHO much easier than fat ones. I was always doing anorectic characters.
trying to make fat one looking dynamic(my bad version of dwarf) will be simply a disaster
Wow guys, I dont know where to start! Ambiet- the faun/fawn? creature is looking great! I love the last update!!
Sepu-lets see more of these dwarves.
What is everyone else up to?
I need to do more color and armor stuff, and I guess some environment or something??
Kickin butt-lets be ready for production next week!
1. Full bodied figure only [CHOW II rules] Please check how the sample character is. As long as all the body parts are shown, collectively. It should be ok.
2. With 3/4 of the character showing [Chow Guidelines]
Doh, I really wanted to have crouching postures. Like they're rummaging through a cooling camp fire looking for clues.
I suppose you can do multiple angles of the same character if you wanted to. Which I certainly don't. o.0

Sweeet updates Sarah and Lindsay, halllo Kenneth.
* sepu: Sorreeeiz, I didn't realise I kept cutting it off. 'twasn't on purpose. hehe
-How about making that steed just a tiny bit larger. Just a tiny bit.
I'll play around with it 'cause I feel his pain. haha
-Just wanted you to know they're triple z'ds, maybe give her a bit more rib cage and
take out that space in-between the right arm and torso.
oh sepu full bodied figure only, sorry. I've been glancing at everything, such a doozy.
* AmbientSounds: Just have her occupied by something else on the side or back.
Through the eyes or the tilt of the head you can play around with her reaction endlessly.
n Nooooo you, are, not, a clown.
In terms of backgrounds and perspective, I could use some help with it also.
But KDPED will bounce off ideas and solutions when we come to.
Looking good everyone.
SirKenneth: I'm trying to think up of postures to surround your good guy with.
I was thinking you'd walked in on our camp, eating deer and tiny horse.
1 standing, 1 sitting on a rock, and 1 semi-profile view. Just a reason to practise
character creations really. hahaha.
For now yes, but I could've sworn a team had their finals facing sideways.
I thought it was Team Baguette, but apparently I was seeing things.
They're not even finished like I thought they were. [What the hell have I been drinking?]
We'll get back to you on that one Linds, but front on looks to be the case. For now.
Maybe just a slight side would be acceptable.
gaaah, if I could, I'd make one minotaur hanging upside down a tree just to see if I'm able to.
Random tree dwellers for anyone with a tree in their background. hahaha.
She needs fantasy magic, stat. This is as close to Warhammers as I could get. o.0
50% size, but emails if you want the larger version. K K

*falls over dead long before the bears can get to me*
as;glkja sg;dlkj okay. twins it is . LOL. I'm glad I know now instead of after I fleshes that biwatch out. @.o Hell I'm sure I can even leave her face like I've got it and just have the body front on. maybe. LOL
You know, it's times like this that a dance fight would come in handy. You fight out your problems, and you dance your frustrations away. (unless you dance into the bear's cave. ....and well, when skunks dance it means you're about to stink a LOT. )
my brain has ceased to function in any kind of human fashion. Sleeeeeeeep
I got carried away doing bull shit tonight I didnt draw any chow at all!! But tomorrow is a whole day off! So, I will finish one of tomorrow- and see if I can do any red liners on some work. I saw another team doing that - where they put red lines over the perspective or proportional problems.
For now, I will sleep also. Thanks for all the info on the rules dwardo-glad my angle is going to work!
Nice variation Kenneth, I'll give it a run through asap.
-I like the feel of your colour selection very much.
I'll have to ask you to palette my grays for me.
-In terms of armor. I kind of like the sharper lines (ab plates) on the original. The helmet, if it were I, I'd probably personalise more.
Aggressive lines/gestures, I'll mock some up and send them along. I just have to get rid of a couple of things on the schedule.
-I'm currenly looking at bugaku masks for the anitos. I want to scare the living crap out of Sarah. Sarah, what scares you?

the ring, the eye, shutter, grudge - this kind of asian horror is just way too much. even in full light and without voice(my way for scary moments I want to see) it is still staiyng with me until night falls and scarying me enough to be afraid to go to toilet.
working with necromancer. getting feelings, trying dynamic postures, almost there where I want to be
You know that every time I try to go
Where I really want to be,
It's already where I am,
Cause I'm already there.
The kombucha mushroom people, sitting around all day! Who will believe you, who will believe you, let your mother prraaaaay. [okay done sorry lol]
Hey kenneth, with your second version the legs on that dude seem a little small for some reason. I'm cool with the redliners, I might play with that for a little bit [lord knows when I get mine back out there I'll appreciate the red lines myself].
Okay, back to the grind today. I feel like such a lump, it's almost one o' clock and I only rolled out of bed and took my boyfriend lunch like an hour ago. [fail]. I'm going to go heat up some leftover pizza, blast some soad on the stereo and get my butt back to work while there's still time [aka while I don't have to work this week and before school restarts].
I'd have to say I love those to death. And yeah it took me awhile to really get used to their newest stuff, but now it's taken hold of me too. Awesome song is Questions, google the music video for it [if you're interested lol ...NO DO IT. ] because it is really good. Most of their vids are just them like jumping around and stuff, but this one's different.
I have little poopers too, but fortunately they are both cats so I don't have to watch them constantly. I kinda wish I could put diapers on them though. How old is your pumpkin?
DAWN OF THE DEAD! [or shawn of the dead, an epic movie in these modern times lol] wait, you have deja vu while watching zombies??? >.> crap, where exactly are you from, so I don't go there on accident and get eaten. [I hate deja vu sometimes, it weirds me the hell out lol]
Dwardo-I am with you- the other guy looks way better! I will keep tweaking him. I might actually just finish him up-add an enviro. Ill keep you posted. I would appreciate some redlines on him (the gold one) so I can fix some of the anatomy issues! Thanks!
Keep at it everyone-we should be producing this week! go go go!
I had a really hard time getting your proportions Kenneth.
How many heads is your construction, 'cause I don't count mine.
It's mostly 7 or 9+ on my end.
So, this is some random, starters I was thinking of.
Smaller head with more room for details. Which I haven't put. Ha!

For someone into Sepultura, I would've expected you to be more of a hard ass. All those movies
you mentioned are comedy man. So silly.
And SOAD is a band, and those are lyrics. I didn't put it together. I thought you mis-spelt SOAP and you
were writing poetry. ok. I really need to get some beauty sleep.
Sarah, George, Kenneth, Lindsay, Vardo.
No one feel bad about the schedules and whatnots. This is a side shits and giggles project and that's that.
But I do expect we push ourselves further on this one. Sweet sweet. yea.
lmao. aaaa funny. update complete. You both should really look into listening to Roxette too.
