There's some fantastic designs and characters in here! I'm looking forward to seeing Rusty's and Aly's finished versions. Sidharth and Jac-K also have really strong starts.
I think I went too much steampunk/pilot with not enough pirate. It's old school b&w pen and ink.

Thanks staticpen, that helps. I drew him close originally because I thought it would look odd if he was too far away from his ship, but this looks good, not too far. I'll mess around with that. Yeah wings were just placeholders for until I look at enough wing reference, kinda daunting, wings are.

Well, it doesn't look like I'm gonna meet the deadline after all . I'm not worried about being able to do the oil painting, but I haven't done enough studies to execute it properly yet by Sunday. Still going to try though! Here's the thumbnail I'm going with, and the final character design and pose.
Great works everyone!!!
I'm sure I won't be able to finish this one, but Ihad to give it a go in my best crimson skies way
Here are the pencils
and the color rough
Thanks to everybody!!!

The Spaniard's Sketchbook... No holds barred
Improved the proportions and trying to polish it further. Let me know what's working and what's not.

i think i am prety much finished, only a few details left i need to work on. any suggestions or critiques?
Here's my take so far... I'm fairly happy with how the image is coming, but concept wise its a bit boring at this point. I won't have much more time to work on it though, so I wanted to post it now for fun.
R0ok - Hey man for some reason I felt like doing a paintover of yours. Never done it before but its one awesome thing about this site!
First of all I just thought It would be cool to lift up the shorts a little so we can see his leg attach to the metal peg leg. I straightend out the hand on the left to give it more force and raised the other hand to break the symmetry. Another thing you could think of doing is adding places where no light gets in, the Ambient occlusion, that always helps push the realism, I didnt really go into to it too much in the PO though. Also I made the foot hang over the edge a little to give it volume. Thats pretty much it, its a really good Image but you should push it further!
The Final Burning thread is up!
CAUTION about the 3/4 rule
You need to show at least 3/4th of your character to get to the poll.
TwentyOne and Danlambert you guys should show more of your character, at least from head to knees
Lineart (for the most part). Its too compositionally heavy on the left side so I'm gonna draw one additional character in on the right to frame that empty space. I'm thinking it would most likely be an animal, like a rat or bird, something sort of badass that would live in a sky ship.
Iviatt: I like your idea with the eye-patch - a sort of ripped in half gas mask! Very nice! You do know you don't have much time left to finish this piece though, right?
Her right leg is a bit confusing, but I assume it's supposed to come through the railing... Her pose seems a bit - awkward teenager-trying-to-be-sexy, or something. Not very Captain-like. What do you think?

Many lovely pictures and concepts, i'm trying at it
Well, if there are any last minute critiques I'd appreciate 'em!!! I've not posted for a while but I've been blown away by quite a few of the posts I've seen...
So my apologies for not offering crits right now... I will attempt to do so if opportunity permits... Naturally I don't expect more from anyone else.
Oh boy... I need to work faster.
Getting pumped!The stuff here looks awesome!
So heres ma pirate! I know it would have been better without lines but i got no time...Ill try to put the last details before i post it. YaaaaR
Mastertroglodyte - it's coming along reallyw ell! As for the crits, it's kind of hard to say, I mean, tghere are things that are a bit off but I think that you'd fix them as you go along. I think what needs to be worked on the most is the form of the character, I think pushing the values can really help.
rgeorge: Thanks man! I will do my best to finish it tonight when I get back in town.
Malakuko: Wow, thanks for that! I agree with a lot of the changes you made. I always wanted to repaint his right arm so that the weapons would appear less symmetrical, and hopefully do something to help the pose as well. It also looks really cool with some heavy darks under the cape - cheers!
Whoa great lines Rusty!Even unfinished its one of the best entries(personal taste ) Big fan of ur work man

heavy liquid: that doesn't look like a pirate or like its in the sky. looks like some apocalyptic ninja.
Sidharth: looks cool, but her sword is looking rather impotent! maybe she could hold it at a more lively angle
dragon4lunch: that looks great. however, the logo on the wall could look a lot better. right now it just looks like someone took a marker to the wall.
Rook: lookin good, but the left arm is very stiff. Melakuko's paint over is good but the right arm doesn't look like it's going back in perspective, it just looks tiny. try desaturating the color as it goes farther back.
Rusty: oh man, I love that! hope you finish it in time!
Here is my WIP, a little generic looking atm:
