this going to be the elementalist outlook...she possess a flamable hair and ability to summon incarnation of the other tree elementals...thus she can withstand a lot of power upon her and do a lot of damage respectively...

...actualy she comes from a nobel clan, but because of her awful look she developed a complex, which prompted her to learn those evil skils, turning herself into a moster...and now she can't escape of this state of monstrosity although she is in doubtness about her acting against the creatures around her...but se is going to keep herself in this direction til meet the superior one...
....we all can hope this wont be long...

04 April 2005, 07:39 PM
haha she looks great!!

04 April 2005, 07:41 PM
she scares me...especially her backview ...*gulp*

04 April 2005, 07:43 PM
actualy this is the purpose of the charachter, she is the evil one, and going to be the opposite of the good looking person in the face of the tree, but i'm thinking about changing the composition view...
...perhaps i'm overdone with the bareness....

04 April 2005, 07:39 AM (

i'm trying with new composition, but may be change the view will be helpfull, this looks not close enough...

04 April 2005, 11:08 AM (

i think this will remain the composition, but i'm not decided where to put the water elemental...may be little room on the left side will be good decision..will see...i'm waiting for critiques

04 April 2005, 05:54 PM (

perhaps little change in the flamable character would bring the conception to better look...i'm still figuring out the outlook.

04 April 2005, 11:04 PM (

here is the idea...the elf with the fire must to make a cleaning in the wood because there is necessity of more room for the youngest trees...that is why the oldest ones must be removed...and here it is the elf stands before the old tree and prepear both of them for the purge...i hope there is clearness about the relationship and who is who in the situation

Your starting to have a very nice mood, very nice lighting. :)

04 April 2005, 01:40 AM
It is an extremely beautiful concept, but take into account that in the challenge rules it is required that at least one of the characters in the picture is human. :\ So there may be problems with this concept.

04 April 2005, 01:56 AM
cool, that's a pretty cool concept. The style if simple, but it works with your overall piece and i like the look of your elf instead of the cliche look. I know you are not finish with this, but adding details to the background and foreground would strenghten your piece. Maybe some blade of grass at the foregrounds and more fading trees at the background. i'll be checking back.


04 April 2005, 04:55 PM (

...proceed with the colors...

04 April 2005, 04:56 PM
damn this looks excellent,very nice mood!

04 April 2005, 05:56 AM
damn this looks excellent,very nice mood!

i totally agreed~:)
u did very well for the textures on the tree.i'll definitely see how u bring this to the end

04 April 2005, 07:31 AM (

little more work...hands to the tree, i think it needs, thus looks little bit more animated and can represent his status

04 April 2005, 08:26 AM (

refine the elf

04 April 2005, 10:44 AM
cool! :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 02:47 PM
This is looking nice! Excellent lighting and mood, and I like the tree a lot. I like where you're going with the elf in general, but an not sure about the pose. Holding one's self up on the feet like that is a careful balancing act, and it feels that if someone were actually in that position that you have her there, they'd fall over forward. I tried it myself and i now blame you for my bloody nose! :-) Okay, I'm kidding about the nose, but i did try to duplicate the pose, and found that to balance myslef, i needed to bring my butt further back and lower, and the knees came up a lot higher. Of course, it's not me you're painting, so your mileage may vary... But you might find it helpful to work from a live person. Get a friend to pose for you (with or without clothes on) and sketch or photograph them just to see where the body parts orient themsleves in order to stay balanced. Bodies are hard at all times, but especially a pose like this is a real balancing act (pun intended!)

Anyhow, good luck with it!

here i decided to make alive some of the others residents of the wood this would make the scene more varied... because the bipolarity of the theme must be dynamized a little bit, i think...
....waiting for critique!

04 April 2005, 04:47 PM
this is great... it was ur snowdrop that inspired me to look at this thread. that lil guys is awesome.. cant get over it... there is just something about it..

ne way i hvnt got time so i just gonna subscrib and come back later coz it looks well wortht the expadition

04 April 2005, 04:58 PM
Hello !

Good idea to make the other alive..
that brings more variety to your should perhaps put more light on foreground in order to make it more present compared with the background.. I read walrus thread and i agree with him..The position of your character look wrong.Indeed, in this posture I will see it falling ahead.You will have perhaps to rectify it a little and to also perhaps make him pose knees with ground..
But..He's also a fantastic character, therefore he's not inevitably subjected to gravity... :)


04 April 2005, 05:05 PM
yeah, you right Walrus, and it is certain that i'm gonna try the pose thing right now, must find some proper know, it so hard to figure out any of the mistaces made in the begining, because I used to them...may be it will be helpfull if I get off for little bit...thanks for the advice, i realy needed it...thanks

04 April 2005, 06:52 PM
this image kicks ass! i actually like the over reaching the sprite dude is doing, it makes the momentum towards the tree. it looks like it might spring towards it and smash the fireball in its face.

maybe you should have some small roots pulling out/breaking and some leaves falling. mb make the pose a little more intentional but keep the potential.

04 April 2005, 06:58 PM
I love the feeling of your image! Niceconcept but i stand with the trees... :rolleyes:

Litle bug i think: the servantess has a balace failure..

best regards: KornÚl

(sorry for my bad english)

04 April 2005, 07:06 PM
Hello, your concept with the format cinema is sympathetic nerve, the attitude of the tree is alive, go, go for the continuation.

04 April 2005, 08:02 PM (

i think a thin tree in the back of the elf should balance the composition, and it's look like going to solve the problem with the blue back-light, because it's seam to me too active for bground color...but the truth are yet to come!

04 April 2005, 08:11 PM (

close look upon the tree...still need much work to be done

04 April 2005, 08:20 PM (

i made a little changes in the pose and i think it's more regular now...i'm waiting any opinion about it...

04 April 2005, 08:25 PM
Ha, the new pose works a lot better. And I really like how you painted the tree, that's very nice.
Just a little thing though: maybe you could try to give a little more intensity to the flame the elf is holding in her hand, make it more "magical". I don't know, just a thought I had.
Excellent work in any case.:thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 08:37 PM
Well, I find that pose to be a lot more believable! Nice work, I think it really paid off! I'm not sure about the back arm: For one thing, it's close to being on a tangent with the rear-end. And secondly, her head and front arm seem like a side-view, but the back at the same time seems twisted around and up so that the far shoulder where that arm attaches feels a bit high.

But 'side from that, things are looking nice. I love the red in her hand, the way light would really shine through skin. And the tree guy is great, especially his face. Good work!


04 April 2005, 03:34 PM
...actualy the servant is the tree, and the elf appears in the scene as the spirit of the seams this concept is not clear enough...perhaps I must change it...

04 April 2005, 03:51 PM
the pose is much better. maybe you should detail the tree a little differently, the hands and nose are cut cleanly which makes it look disney :hmm: make them knobbly and rounded - the nose can be like a burl (mb look that up) and the fingers finish sharper.
you could also put a few whispey leaves at the end on his eyebrows like an old man.

her shoulders are way too broad, mb twice whay they should be - connect the arm where the old drawing finished and make the hand longer, forearm slightly shorter. add some sparks to te flame (just a few) and give it a dense core. maybe even give the flame tiny thin hands, reaching greedily towards the tree. gl, good image :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 04:07 PM
GhostInTheMachine< you are right about the nose, i was thinking the same, but i though this kind of nose would be not so descriptive...and the shoulders, i was about to chage them before consider the conception is not clear enough....i'm confused whether proseed this scene or change the conception...thnks for the advices, i shall work on it (if i keep it)

04 April 2005, 06:12 PM
what a great image. i really love the process keep the updates comming ! :thumbsup:

04 April 2005, 07:29 PM
