ROUND #171:: Ti'phar of the AraritaDESCRIPTION
Ti'phar of the Ararita
Thank you to Sorknes for this suggestion.
Ti’phar is the third wife of Tao’a’teh ruler of Ararita a small planet known for its civilizations artistic beauty, whether it is in architecture, sculpture, painting or general creativity. Ti’phar is determined to be more than a pretty consort for the king though: and she has become a force to be reckoned with in the political system of the planet, having established herself as Prime Minister, and rumours persist that the real power lies with her, rather than her husband. She has become the chief negotiating officer for inter-galaxy matters of state, and her upbringing though formal and staid, has been useful in diplomatic situations where tact and empathy have been important.
She sees no conflict with her two offices, that of Queen and central executive officer, and is a stickler for formality and custom, precise in her dress, and fashionable to a fault, following the strict rules of her planet’s customs; decorum always being a priority, which dictates modesty and elegance. She is proud, graceful and sophisticated, and above all clever.
Her species are known for their beautiful looks; humanoid, tall, thin with elegant refined features.
Open to interpretation, but stick to the description. They are humanoid, but you can elaborate on that to a degree within the limits of 'humanoid'.

Nice topic. Flex them creativity muscles. Probably end up with a Bayonetta/Sarah Palin futuristic Mass Effect/Queen Amidala type.. err.. nevermind. Nice topic.
Haha, I put that in just last night! I guess I better participate in this one then...

Great topic and thankfully not busy at work today.

hot alien chicks....ok then ..lets rock
Cool subject, I'm trying to keep ger outfit simple, yet with a hint of royalty.
tonysaurus: Like the idea, good start. If you are interested, Michael Whelan did an illustration for 'The Martian tales of Edgar Rice Burroughs' One is called The Princess of Mars and has double armed humanoid creatures. If you go to his website and search 'Princess of mars' the illustration is there. Slightly different way of doing it but may be of reference.
lol, considering that as soon as I saw this thread, I had to snatch up a pad of paper and a ballpoint pen (only things handy) and scribble the idea that popped into my head, I'd say inspiration has struck and this is a great topic!
So, uh here's my scribble, photographed with my cell phone's 2 megapixel camera and neatened up a bit in PS. I'd consider it my first WIP, even though she needs a body still
Figured I`d join in, since all "popular" kids are busy with their team Chows, so I might stand a chance (...pfff...please) Hope I`ll finish in time. Damn exams...

Here are some quick pose and proportion studies
thought i could do some kind of outlandish avant garde outfit, but for now just some kind of full suit, something a little more sober. maybe if i get some time i'll do something a little more elaborate
I changed one of the poses and started to add some BG info for a sense of location...not sure what I'm going to go with, but it's a start.
Here's the first colour study...I probably have less defined versions, which I may post in the final, but I got carried away.
westoon: I like the composition of the latest, the drape of the skirt works beautifully and the background is looking interesting.
PxelSlayer: I think you have definately captured elegance and grace, lovely extension on her legs, look forward to seeing it progress.
I think I might scrap this and start again - (I'll finish it but not for this challenge)
I have concentrated too much on the 'force to be reckoned with' and she
is starting to look more warrior than queen consort, political leader.
