Two questions:
1) In the case I think some spots of one of the renders should look different, am I free to make some minor changes? (of course that would be my humble opinion about the art, all images are top notch!)

2) Can I work in pencil only? Would that be considered unfinished? I ask this because the "draw and paint" item in the rules.

I'm a 3d guy mostly, but I have learned to draw way before I started with 3D. Still, I got stuck with pencils, never got any further. So I wouldnt be able to paint and it would really great to finally participate in one of this threads.

Yep, feel free to take liberties, I am using the term "Bargue" here pretty liberally. Mainly I'm just interested in seeing artists who participate use the 3D render reference for great lighting and form ref, and the rest is up to you. For beginners (that's not necessarily you), I think it's best to stick as close to the reference as is possible. Obviously the goal if you are interested in really learning how to render is to most closely match the ref without tracing, color sampling, etc. I myself don't plan to try to match pore for pore, but just try painting from several different images to see how close that I can get. I may end up doing a bunch of unfinished studies in addition to hopefully some more polished work.

2) Can I work in pencil only? Would that be considered unfinished? I ask this because the "draw and paint" item in the rules.

Yep, this Workshop is open to both digital and traditional work.

I think that's great, we've had traditional work in previous Workshops and I really don't mind at all. I think whatever helps you to better see / observe is relevant to CG, so pencil draw away to your heart's content, and post your work here.

Wow, it's been a while since we've had a 2D one (or I've just been missing them). Good timing, as I'm about to start working on some plates a friend let me scan. The renders provided look great, and I'll happily try one or two. I'll be posting both here and on CA.org.

Good to have you aboard! I've not run a free Workshop in a year, and so am stoked to see what will happen with this one.

dansgarbage, great, hope that you will participate!

Here's my first sketch. The dimensions I'm working with are 8x11 inches. Because I'm doing this in traditional medium, I opted for a grid system to get my general proportions down. Comparing the overlay of my original sketch with the 3D render, there are some obvious proportional issues but overall I'd say its pretty close. I'll go back and fix the sketch to correct those issues before I begin shading. Not sure what medium I'm going to use yet but I may do it in graphite or charcoal.
