you make me afraid Magda... of you prepar too much your masterpiece... no chance for other challengers :D hahahaha

You make me curious now... :wise:

11-15-2008, 05:00 PM
just noticed your thread - good luck, Magda!
really looking forward to watching your thread/process here!

11-15-2008, 11:49 PM (

here's my idea - this is a VERY rough pre-viz... not sure about the general colour scheme [whether I want it colorful like that or more toned down] Also the thing on her head is looking way better in my head so I'll just leave it to 3d instead of trying to get it right in photoshop hehe:)

My main inspiration for the pose came from George Frederic Watts's 'The All-Pervading'

A PYTHIA - THE ORACLE :) [yes I'm going for 1 character - I'd rather not fool myself in being able to do 10 of them at high level in that amount of time hehe]

11-15-2008, 11:52 PM
daWinky - thanks a lot Sabrina :D

fgdf - cheers :D

Lemog - lol you have nothing to be afraid of I'm sure hehe...

alenah - Thanks a lot :D

11-16-2008, 12:29 AM
really beautifull , the color scheme is very appealing to me :) .
That new idea sounds great . i'd say go for it :arteest:

11-16-2008, 01:36 AM
Agree with collings. Though when I saw your character at first, I thought it could be Medusa (the snake-hair woman) :)

11-16-2008, 01:41 AM
Thanks Nick - yeah I shall :) No more changes [though I hardly believe this statement hehe]

Martin - thanks! yes I thought it would look like that hehe... like I've said I totally failed at drawing that headpiece ;)

11-16-2008, 01:47 AM
Phew.... good you`re in Image category. That makes my chances bigger! ;D

Powodzenia, Madziu ;)

11-16-2008, 03:42 AM
I'm not familiar with the story, but I like your concept sketch! :) I like your color scheme, or maybe you could add touches of blue-violet, just a thought. I'm sure this will turn out very well!

11-16-2008, 04:54 AM
wow I really like you concept color is beautiful.I'm look forward for your work.

11-16-2008, 05:06 AM
Kudos! great design.

heheh don't worry, there's no reason to overcrowd the picture, I like the portrait style you're using.

11-16-2008, 06:22 AM
Ah here you are!
Great choice (still haven't made up my mind meself) and smart thinking as usual.
Have fun Magda!

11-16-2008, 07:35 AM
Good concept, this can be a really interesting portrait - and especially timewise a clever choice sticking to one character:wise: I'm looking forward to see the first polys here...


11-16-2008, 09:12 AM
Your concept sketche appear more enjoy than the inspiration was... and especially more "exotic"... I prefer your vision and I will be glad to see the next development :thumbsup: good for me...
...and totally you !

11-17-2008, 07:16 AM
hey Magda, i really like your concept, and i'm sure is better to do a great model , then lots of unfinished ones, so i'm a bit scared i'll be in that position and not be able to finish them...:D
best of luck Magda ! :thumbsup:

11-17-2008, 02:49 PM
So good to see you here Magdalena. As I told Nicolas Collings, it's so great to see old forumers join the challenge. Let's see who gets a better result between you, Collings and me :P

Best wishes~

11-17-2008, 10:19 PM
wonderfull design!!

11-17-2008, 10:59 PM
hey Jack, why do you want us to compete each other ? :curious:

11-17-2008, 11:02 PM
Because it`s always so interesting to watch!!! ;)

11-17-2008, 11:19 PM
OMG - thanks everybody so much for your kind words about the concept - well I'll start the modeling asap :) Needed some breather over the weekend :D

Jack - throwing down the gauntlet are we? LOL...

AndreiSzasz - you're scared? Hehe omg dude... 'unfinished' and 'changed my mind' are my middle name:scream:

11-18-2008, 02:48 PM
Great concept, Magdalena: colors are beautiful, and I like her pose.

11-18-2008, 07:33 PM
Hey Magdalena,

Cool idea and really nice sketch. Think your portrait approach can be really great :D Looking forwar for more updates on your concept. Good luck ! :D

11-19-2008, 04:20 PM
well if its an unofficial competition going on im definitly on your side :p
i really like the concept a lot.
right now its more princess amidala then steampunk on first sight
but you always know what your doing.

11-19-2008, 05:20 PM
Another great work from Magdalena. I follow you, good luck! :thumbsup:

11-19-2008, 10:07 PM
Simply beautifull... realy want to see more :)

11-21-2008, 09:30 PM
Hi Magdalena!

I realized I missed your thread...and that's a shame because your concept sketch looks great! It's promising, I can't wait to see more!

See ya!


11-25-2008, 03:02 AM (

decided to revise my idea - wasn't too happy with the previous one - and go for my favorite story of all time - HAMLET ... I have no idea why I haven't done that from the start 0_o

this is a VERT quick mock up/collage of the steampunk prince [looks too much like a girl hehe and btw, it's a skull he's holding ... kinda chunky, I know]
well now I have to really get a move on!

11-25-2008, 03:06 AM
thanks everyone for the kind words!

11-25-2008, 03:10 AM
the frist idea was great but this one is nice too ! Let's move now you have some time to catch up ;)

11-25-2008, 03:11 AM
:p lol yeah ... well thankfully I've got just one dude so I should catch up *fingers crossed* Thanks Nick!

11-25-2008, 03:12 AM
a very good morning Magda! :p i like the color scheme in this new concept! .. in fact .. speaking of which ... you can combine one or more mythologies and see what works out .. that way there's stylization and originality at the same time ...
[ just an idea ] = how about pairing hamlet with someone else .. more dark or equivalent to his level ...
one thing for sure ... there are traces of 'mystery' in your work :twisted:

11-25-2008, 08:30 AM
I'm looking forward to seeing this develop. Good luck.

11-25-2008, 09:12 AM
Haha !!! We should work together ;)
You began Hamlet... I've the Ophelia !!!

Nice to see comon inspirations ;)

11-25-2008, 10:04 AM
Your concept art already amazes me... can't imagine my reaction to your 3d piece! :bounce:

11-25-2008, 10:14 AM
hey Magda! really cool Hamlet, it would go nice as a Hamlet girl , too :scream:
now let's see the modeling !:bounce::bounce::bounce:
