I like her, mostly because the bison's hair is gonna be brown so for contrast, you know.....

I tried to stick close to the second one (the last color sketch) that many said was their favorite.

Well me too on that one!!

Thanks everyone for all!!

save yourself the hastle, if the bison's hair is gonna be darker the the blonds i think it would be a perfect contrast. light against dark work well. and in this case i stand by that.

Thumbs up I like!!

Nice curves! I would call her Rhea, Sweet Rhea, the name just pops in the moment i saw her! Is she wearing stockings or a pantyhose, just notice the colors on her legs are different. But she's sweet, oh yeah. Great job, will follow this thread. Best of luck!

Looking nice, Gabriel! The only suggestions that I can see to offer is on the feet and shoes, which could use some subtle tweaking. For example, the heels on the 2 shoes are 2 different sizes... pick one. (Myself, i like the thinner stilettos.) Her heel on the screen-right foot looks a bit large... in fact, you could experiment with daintier feet all the way around, perhaps. On the screen-left foot, you may not need that part of the shoe to the right of the foot - maybe just make it more of a profile shot. These are all really small, trivial little nit-picks, but honestly, they're the only thing I can see to comment on. Everything else is lookng terrific! She looks really nice... I can tell you must be a Phil Foglio fan!
Keep it coming...

yes, it's looking great!
for me, maybe I would have given her some warmer colors, she is too blue for my taste, but maybe after coloring the rest of the scene everything matches perfectly... maybe you can make the contrast between the bison and her with the b/w level, and keep everything in warm colors? I don't know, it's my only sugestion, I really enjoy your style of drawing...

It's looking great man, nice to see progress!

I really like the lighting here, I'm also diging how you've changed the colors of your skecth lines, never did that before and now must try! Are you thinking about keeping some of those nice strokes during the paint? cause I think you should....

keep it up 8 D

Hola Gabriel. I believe that the girl of your first and second sketch has a great hair, with more movment, more fluid. I really like the sexy expression of the chick on your second sketch. only a comment.
Your progress looks great!!. Suerte!

Talking Thank You!!

AWWW i feel so nice to see i'm on my fourth thread page! i never had one anyways, and it surprises me how great people with weird nicknames i get to meet here!

Hmm Lets see...
RUBEN-F: Thanks. don't worry about that, the important thing is to be on the way already, see you around!
JackZhang: I love the fact that enthusiastic people like you are around in events like this,
feels great to be part of it!
eclipse115: Well, i'm so sorry he will have both hands busy to hold the map, but you willsee
it in the background,(i still think of putting some kind of joke in it) And thanks
for the shoe advice, as you see i put some of that in the last one.

Sovica: WOOOW i wish i will be able to live up to that kind of spectation, you flatter me
a lot just saying it ... please let me know what you think of this one!

elmasfeo:You must mean that name, you look like a foot! but you have some good
fashion sense, anyway, Yes you're right! warmer is gonna be better and i will
have it in mind when i do the color. Thanks and keep showing!

Ferx:Yeah i know the zorrita look goes nice with her, and i'll bring back the long loose hair
Kei-Acedera:I hope i'll still se you around! I loved your gallery and the workers pic!
CUBISIS: it's coming, it's coming man! i can't wait either

DogMan3d: Cheers with sake to you too!
PBCastle : Now i wonder if you survived your caricaturist afterlife, people is so sensitive
about their looks, i just wonder if you died stoned or something!
killer-instinct93 :THANKYOU! it means so much to me that you liked the hands, it took me
forever to learn what i know now, and you don't often realize you got
better until somebody tells you, Thanks Again!
AxelAlonso: Man What to say, you are always around and take time to look at the detail
and the flaws, Thank you a real lot!
walrus : You are the man. Ah the shoes! i was too lazy to get them look right. from all
people you had to notice.
Gord-MacDonald : Great pencils, Kick ass as well, Thanks!

Hede: Buddy, So nice to see you keep coming, Yes i colored the lines and probably will
flatten them with base colors and take them for a ride on painter, although the
will disappear in the end , too bad

Dissipation : Solid is such a nice word in this business, i hope i deserve it........
element5 : Thanxz and i hope to see you here often!
Slav : You're right, i'm testing the blond against dark already Thanks!
icedeyes : Great you hopped in! A Samurai Pizza Cats fan will always be welcome here!
Blonde is coming back.

Smik:bugaga very nice too, Thank you!
kikomunar : AW Thanks buddy, i asked her about her pantyhose and now she doesn't talk
to me anymore, and told all her friends i'm a weirdo (i think i'll peep)
W-I-L : Thanks man, cartoons rule my life.....

So i just decided i'll never decide about the girl (Which now is named Sweet Rita, from a fusion of Zorrita [thanks Ferx] and Sweet Rhea[Thanks kikomunar]), i will just start the color and change her and make variations on the way, there is time, no?

No?... i think i'll finish it on time.... it can be done right? ..... Allright now i don't know!

My sight is blurry now, Bye.

Hola Gabriel,
{ Zorrita jajaja te pasas } well love the primary colors you have in your palette very well complemented, and dark hair seem the right choice for Rita, also I have a suggestion were the clothing seem perfect for a high class “wana be” executive, and the have that kind of wardrobe, so try to give it some texture on her jacket and skirt maybe a small pattern that complement colors as well, kind of like the Jacky O. look…witch in my opinion, is also more unlikely to be flirting with a big hairy beast guy!
