Suneater: Thanks for the update and character background. I know what you mean about having an idea whirling around for a while - and I guess this round's brief does leave it quite open to interpretation. Really nice work.
Ivan: More than welcome! Good luck with the hands, pesky things they are. I didn't realise this was your first chow - really nice entry, especially for a first.
Oren90: Nice update, thanks. The hand is looking much better.
Veshkau ~ thx, once again
It's a pleasure and honor to be a part of such a great community. So many talented artists here, great entries.
I'm almost done.
It's been awhile since I've participated in CHOW...but after reading a post by Sorknes on another thread, I felt compelled to participate. So, here's my little rough sketchy. I'm not sure where I'm going with him just yet, but we'll see tomorrow!
Update on crap.
Nice stuff everyone.
Here's my finished gossiping courtier. not sure of the colour scheme, I was going for garish and over the top, but not sure I pulled it off. A bit late now to change but if anyone has a last minute suggestion?
Suneater cool character, I think generally if u have less saturated colors in the background the figure will pop out more.
Angel Intheuk awesome expression canít wait to see it finished
QueenGwenevere Beautiful composition and very nice clothing , interesting symbolism too. I think maybe some of the charm from the pencil sketch has gone with the digital coloring. maybe its the background looking a little to CG?
Ivan Turcin Nice char and rendering. I miss a bit not having eye contact with the figure. but hey it works fine in this piece.
I started over with this little fellow, he is the king of the castle when then queen is out. Hope to finish it to the early deadline
Veshkau -Yeah, I was planning on adding glow or sparkles or something later, although I probably won't finish in time. Um, I'm pretty new to digital art and am still learning how to draw faces properly in perspective. Could you be more specific about what is off on the face? I feel like it might be her right eye but I'm not sure. I'm all for improvement! Thanks!I know it's early days, but a couple of things - her face is a little off, perspective-wise, and apart from the wings outline I'd never have guessed she was a fairy. Some accessories or a glow maybe?
Been busy with the new job, but gonna try and see how much I can get rendered by tomorrow evening.
Courtiers to me mean the Anne Boleyn-types, gossiping and scheming, trading sex for money and power, all the usual. Plus vampires.

Bnoch = noob... so my apologies if I'm breaking rules, or otherwise posting poorly. I'm still have my CA.org training wheels on.
This is a great opportunity to exchange creative goodness with a bunch of inspired people. I'm a bit late to the pool, but I really like this particular assignment.
I began exploration with a Cinco de mayo/Dia de los muertes inspired character roughs because... its May. I didn't find myself convinced that a jester like character represented a "Courtier" well. So I went a different route, and explored the idea of a character that is a Courtier, but represents the Queens personal bodyguard. Unassuming as a woman, but slightly dysfunctional and paranoid, she never leaves the queens side with her favorite shank. A hybrid of subtle Aztec/mayan inspired clothing and facial paint felt like a nice takeaway from my initial explorations of South American influences.
ok... no more talky.
Also, can someone direct the lost guy to the FINAL thread? Am i already there?
Bnoch - The finals thread will appear sometime tomorrow right above or below this one.
I'm blown away by all the awesome entries so far! Love love those vampire ladies Jessibean.
Well I think I'm as close to done as I can get considering the looming deadline. Might work on it a little more so any last minute crits would be great. But this is probably it.
I suppose no matter what I'm drawing, there will always be some sort of question in my mind about it. A work of art (even cartoon art) is never really finished; it is abandoned.
_ Brooke McEldowney,
Aww man, my car broke down today and I lost like 8 hours stranded across town. Typical. I'm gonna skip any more WIP posts and just go for the final run I think.
Helluva first post Bnoch, looks dope-so much expression in the poses. This is shaping up to be a real fine comp!
It seems like her right eye doesn't line up properly with the perspective of her other features, especially the mouth. Other than that - looking good.Veshkau -

Jager ~ haha, he really enjoys it!
Bendragon ~ come on dude, finish it! such a beautiful colors and costume!
JessiBean ~ oooh... they are so good and in sexy outfits, lovely!
Bnoch ~ outstanding work, cheers!
Asterisks ~ nice mood and gesture. really like it.
I'm lost and tired, does anyone have any final comments/suggestions?
Awesome stuff guys. Wish I came into this sooner. Just started ... -____-
Ah one more WIP can't hurt.
GRRAH. Lost a night to migraine, but I'll see if I can patch up something postable in the next few hours.
Background is still just base colors, so that part's not finished... But yeah, the overall slickness elsewhere is bugging me, not sure what to do to fix it in the time remaining. Argh. Argh argh argh. I'll see what I can come up with... >.<Beautiful composition and very nice clothing , interesting symbolism too.

Unfortunately I have to go to work and won't be back in time to finish this. So, this is as rendered as it is going to get. =(
I'm back online! And in my new house as well. Now to get drawing haha. Did some pencil sketching throughout the week so I might be able to get something done but my workspace is still a mess and mostly boxed..
All diggety done.
