Little more progress. Going to do something different with her thunder thighs, but not sure what quite yet.
Here's a closeup of my 'instrument'. It's looking ok I guess, but I want to get a more pearlescent effect on it.
So many great concepts this round, so glad I got into CHOW! I'd like to give crits to all you guys, but my figure drawing is so poor it would probably be counter productive.
Thanks! That's what I was going for. I used a lot of those old movie star pics for inspiration and ref.rgeorge: Hi monkeysills, your sillouette reminded me of Ava Gardner
You guys are all on fire. Only thing I've been doing is collecting ref and inspirational material but ideas are building
[QUOTE=Soupandbutter;2742966]Three of my ideas
Not sure wich one to expand
The rap sketches are gorgeous... go for that! (enough metal already!)
Here's my start. I'm going for the king of rock. I want to try doing most of this in Illustrator.
Refschaufschek - Looks like your character might not fit the 3/4's rule, hopefully you will double check that before the end because your image is too good to be disqualified.

I'm trying to toy with post-rock as a theme. For now, though, here's some more progress on my current pictures.
I just moved so I've been out of the loop for awhile from CA and am so ready to get back into CHOWs, I'm so excited that this is a long chow. Awesome stuff so far! I'll start on my thumbnails today and post some crits once I have the thumbs finished
not much new in this update...
hope I can hang in there! There is some badass $h*!!!
This fits into the 3/4 guidelines yeah?

Just roughin out some more details on Rocker Queen. So. I noticed her legs were too small. Eff. And now, she wont fit how I orginally had her. So....for now. Shes missing legs and an arm. Also, adding a bit more queenly materials to her, but gonna keep her rocker appeal with the leather jacket and vinyl leggings. Also, I don't know about the hair. I might change it.

This thread keeps getting more and more insane. My hip hop king is coming along. Lovin so much about this topic.
Here is my start. Not a lot of room for concepting just gonna go with the flow and see what I come up with.
@Dan!-Nice take on the concept. You have an awesome design sense. I can't wait to see it further developed.
cptcrandall - are you finding it difficult to paint her face the way her head is tilted? mine is in a similar position and it's frustrating but I'm learning tons.
mykro - looking' fabulous! he looks more intense now.
beelow - very nice! I'm sort of going with the flow as well. her arms look awesome so far!
Some more progress. I cropped out her legs because they looked like a monkey's dirty ass, and I think I'll go with a more queenly gown/skirt. Gathering wedding dress refs for that because I think it'll be a daunting task. The more I look at her crown the less I like it. Might have to do a re-paint. GAH!
My home PC motherboard greeted the world last week. Maybe I was contemplating too much evil things, perhaps devine intervention.
Perhaps I should start on paper proper.
Minor setback, it's just a few days from payday. Hehehehe!!
Nice work pplz!!!
You can smell that's stuff's cooking in the citchen.

Scetchbook: View the exhibitionist's stuff.
Astrobiology - I've been thinking about it as well. But I'm not really sure - I mean, you can see 3/4 of the character - I'm counting in the clothes. And she wouldn't really be very Baroque-ish if she was naked or in a less covering costume (well, maybe in another scenery). But I'd really like a heads up if that's the case... Thanks for it...
Heaps of changes here, a more trumpety look to my instrument and replacing my horse with a mech being the most notable. Even with some changes the horse just wasn't working out. Man I haven't seen sunlight since this CHOW started, hahaha. Ugh...

update: I'm not only giving her white mozart hair, but I also want a lot of piano sheets coming out of it.
