good stuff there guys!
Mines a sith bot! he glows when his light saber turns on.
That hand is huge and out of place, but oh well.
Not as strong and as skilled as a true sith, but sent in too take out opposing units! :D
I like the idea, better than the drawing:( ...

Here is an updated version...thanks to Avetice for the critique. It helped out alot!
March 20th, 2003, 10:18 PM
while regular jedi apprentices are tought virtues and valor...the sith have a lot more "entertaining" propositions in mind.

inspired by Afro-american religions, like voodoo and others.

Ok I'm gonna give this critiquing thing a shot so bare with me here hopefully i will be able to help out a little bit......
Take the crit or dont, just dont get angry at me
Nice solid shapes. Try to establish a light source and block in the side facing the light and the side in the dark, I can already see the loca values of the costumes but the next step I would suggest is that of the above. Try setting those up first
Nice overall job as well. Not too much here that my eyes can see that need work but i woulda suggested a lighter value down the middle of the light sabers. Nice blocking in and keeping the value of the abstact shapes next to the figure.
Nice facemask. Not too much here that i would fix either. I would do something with the background to help put it further back from the foreground because that background and costume being so close in color sorta makes the picture a little flat.
I Was Ink:
Good job, heh you already picked the error i noticed :)
It gets a little confusing in the middle left side where the robe falls from i think the shoulder. Its a little hard to tell the form thats underneath the robe on the left side and where his arm would be underneath it.
Good Job.Nice appealing design but it doesnt read as a sith too well. If the helmet looked different it might read more as a sith. Be careful your colors are getting a little muddy. They look smudged, Just keep blocking in. The darker of the textures you have in the background between the reds on the top and bottom doesn't work too well but keep experimenting. Your anatomy looks ok, of what face shows it looks very nice.
Haha, nice posture and nice design.
Again same as in boehmke's try blocking in moreso than already. You seem to have the hang of it, but you go into detail it seems right after you have a few blocks in one area.The shoulderguard for instance you start scribbling a little maybe to try to add texture? Try to hold of on that till the very end after you had defined the form more so. Otherwise nice job.
Nice job as well. You blocked in the shadow well on the face. Thugh with more time you could probably have define more of the face in the shadow with more blocking in(i know its a pen sketch but you should still block in after you have the structure and gesture down and your idea of what you want in your head. I know it was only 10 minutes but try to work on the line quality its looking a bit too sketchy. I've heard people before say thats their style but when you don't have the control in your hand then it isn't showing you know what your doing. What that usually happens from is sketching too heavily too quickly, maybe sketch very litely at first, just litely enough to barely see the lines.
Nice job, I like the overall feel of the figure. The shirt part of the tootoo gets lost in the figure if it is a shirt or if its the skin its a little hard to read, either way it needs to be defined a little better. I dont mean it needs to be rendered more I mean it needs a slight change in value either way you want it to read better as a shirt, if its the skin the anatomy of it needs to be more clearly define. In the left corner those green shapes seem too petter in, try to just lay down the color.
Nice design of the robe. Good job of laying down the colors. The part where the left robe runs to the right and overlaps the over part of the robe needs to be shown that it is over the other a little better that line either needs to be thicker at that point.
Good job. The firein the background doesn't work too well, it is a little too pixelated. The dog, even though made of fur, can still use blocking in of lights and darks. Its great that you tried something you didn't have an idea of how to start out, keep doing that. The face lis too flat, the nose looks just stuck on there, think in terms of shapes in perspective as well as shapes. Don't get too caught up in rendering and detailing the fur so soon. keep it up :)
Nice job. He could have use some darker darks. If you blur your eyes the figure is flat, more graphic than illusionistic. An indication of where the forms turn would help a little more.
Nice costume design. My suggestion would be to do some life drawing (doesn't mean figure drawing) just draw anything around you and draw the objects and just the objects. It just seems that your trying to draw what you know but haven't studied visually. Pick up the book drawaing from the right side of the brain, youll be amazed by it.
Good job with doing a monochromatic study. Again as some of the others, you seem to be trying to render rather than to show the form. The design of the costume was a good idea.
Nice job with definig the forms and not going into rendering mode. Both the arms are too short. The over-shirt is a little off in the way its falling on the arms and shoulder.
Nice and simple hehe :) . I think you might have been worrying too much about how close they looked to the actual characters with the time given. Try to just get the basic shapes of them and then lay in blocks of color showing the forms and overlapping. Then you can go in and define them more.
Nice job for 30 minutes. The smoke is a nice touch. Its a little confusing how the costume is and how the light from the lightsaber is falling onto it.
Uhhhhhhhhh Good job :D. I wish I could crit your but everything seems fine, my eyes aren't trained enough for me to see whats wrong with yours. Nice design, the arm on our left is a little confusing. It looks like it could either be resting on the saber or behind it, its hard to tell which. If he is grabbing it, it looks like he is resting a little too much of the weight of his arm on what little of the handle their appears to be. The part of the cape on our right doesn't seem right in relation to where the arm is undernetath it.
Nice design and laying down of shapes. Its looking a little too grey and blurry though. The shadows on the figure a little too strong and desaturated. The arm on our left is a little off. The lightsaber as well is confusing, define its shape and volume more by rendering it less.
Cool costume design, reminds me a litte of trigun with the half face cover. The hand on our left looks broken from the wrist. I dont know if you meant to give her a light-saber-knife, if not, the sabre is short. Anatomy looks a little off in general, head looks too far to the left.
STOP THUMBNAILING SO DAMNED MUCH AND PICK ONE TO GO THROUGH WITH! /me smacks himself
Really cool overall design and look. His shoulders look a little too far apart. The white glow in that manner on those sabers doesn't look too good because of the huge jump in value from that red to white. Not bad otherwise.
Nice job on the design, a very different and nice change from the other designs. It looks like you have bubble muscles going on there though. Maybe study the skeleton a little bit and how the muscles are attached to them.
Good job nice deign. The posture looks stiff though and it looks like she is falling over.Good job with laying in the dark and lights.
whew ok good job everyone, it was a good run tonight.
March 21st, 2003, 12:44 AM
Avetice: Thanks for the critique! What you said in your notes are exaclty the problems i have been noticing in my work for the past few weeks. I think I am trying to hard for a 'look.' And instead of blocking in and painting I am sketching and sketching and sketching. Not painting. Thanks for your input! I look forward to hearing what you have to say in the future!
March 21st, 2003, 01:36 AM
Super late and not done, oh well...
March 21st, 2003, 02:05 AM
Toshi - I love it! Great work - the palette stays within the classic greyscale/red "sith" scheme, the trademark hood is included, yet you've done entirely new things with them - excellent! Although usually the light sabers are white on the inside and red on the outside, i think ;)

greqt work everyone, Im sorry I missed out on this one,
* hardcore- you are unbelivable. the force is definately with you. awesome pic!!
March 21st, 2003, 08:16 AM
mindcandy, danielh68, thanks for the kind words.
evil_dan, your designs are great.
android, thanks man. that whole dsg thing makes me improve somehow i guess.
i'll post some wips so davi won't kill me for replying :
1:1 work size
March 21st, 2003, 12:34 PM
awesome picture and great demonstration. I didn't think there was a line sketch involved...so cool.
March 22nd, 2003, 03:21 AM
Somewhat late and not quite 90 minutes... I'm posting it here anyways since this topic got me started.
5-8hrs of work (nightshift).
100% Photoshop 5.5.
1:1 CG size.
No reference used.
Long torso on the right?
Right not as pretty? Big nose? Definately something on the lower part of the face, although rightmost eye could be a bit wider still.
Mid one might have some oddity in the face area too.
Gloves not finished really.
Edit, updated it:
Hope admins wont kill me for posting perverted panty siths :emb:
I like Toshis design.
March 22nd, 2003, 04:53 AM
Those panties have the imperial seal of approval. Literally.
I think the head on the right looks fine. The face in the middle looks a bit off though. Ear too far forward maybe? I have no idea.
You also win the award for most effective battle armor. Ever.
March 26th, 2003, 01:41 AM
Hi guys...new to the forum. Awesome work!! Here's my takes on the Sith girls...
April 1st, 2003, 01:40 PM
There is some incredible art in this thread! Lambey, I really love these designs! Like Iain McCaig channelled through Samurai Jack! And Hardcore, this is a truly inspiring painting! Thanks for sharing the WIP! By the way, was this done in traditional media, Photoshop, Painter, or some combination...?
I'm inspired, and hopefully will start contributing some DSG work soon!
