This is for Weekly Challenge. The theme is bubble. The inspiration comes when I see some movies which has mysterious creature in the deep of the sea...yeah, something like that :)

:3 are we allowed to edit it before the end of the week after submission?

Posted By: RobbieE
Date Posted: 13 January 2009 at 5:34pm
Mine probably won't be as good as some of the WIP look but I thought i'd give it a go.

Just working on line art and starting to choose a palette, expect pretty heavy revisions to the final.

And if you're wondering why it's a coke bottle or as the end will be (a generic brand rip-off) is because when I think of bubbles I think of soft drink

edit: Oh yeah I've only been working on this for five minute so far as I'm a bit rushed and I'm going to be busy the next two days (Hope that doesn't make it too hard for me to finish in time)

i dunno

I feel kinda freaky when I look at other entries and then mine. Guess I'm a wackjob. I still have 10 colors left to use.

I'm running in the desert,
running in to the sun,
running out of blood
and I'm going numb.

Leroy, your wip is really good. The idea as the realisation...
You dont have to absolutly use 20 colors... it's just the maximum you can use.
I'm looking forward to see the final version ^^

Also is there a way to check that I did tick the weekly challenge check box, Because I'm pretty sure I did but I always like to second,triple, etc etc check things to make sure I have >.>

Posted By: Hapiel
Date Posted: 16 January 2009 at 7:57am
1, yes you can check it, if you scroll just a bit under the image you can see the text 'more from the gallery', with next to it 'weekly challenges only', or not and than its not submitted to it.
2 yours is in the challenge
3, if you forgot to check the box, you have a huge chance that a mod recognizes it as a challenge entry and asks you if its misplaced, before it gets approved into the gallery.

I think that's much better.

She does look a lot better but for some reason the body chest/torso just looks way off to me. She looks more like a cluedo piece than an actual person. I think it's got to do with the hunch at the back and the fact that you can see the breasts on the other side of the arm so it makes her appear very oddly wide, Kinda like she's a hunchback with overly large breasts.

Her chest position isn't matching the neck/head position.
The face expression looks much better, though.

Way better jeremy! In my opinion, all that needs to get edited now is the hand (its really weird with that 'stripe' on it), I can make a quick edit if you don't understand what I mean, and I think the image is too large now, remove a few pixels from the right part.

Hey, pixelman4, you saved that as a jpeg so it's not pixel art. Save as a png or gif!

But I couldn't make it into something I liked. Shes shooting up Chemical X by the way.
