thanks guys--i appreciate the support. i'm not ready to talk about it right now, but it feels very comforting to know you guys care
snootchy, the third one works best but her anatomy is really wonky. her upper half isn't overlapping her pelvis correctly and the leg was looking a little funky so i just rotated it a bit. be careful of her crotch being too low--you have her crotch meeting with her legs directly--the female crotch goes higher than the legs by a lil bit. i think maybe a cheerleading or gymnastics ref will help to show you what i mean. (i tried to draw an outline for you)--the crotch is higher and will overlap with the leg that is extending behind her.
anyway--i think you should keep to that composition.
spect, i love how it's coming along--it's a big improvement and looking really good so far. i can see you like her hair buns--but i think you can play around with her hair more to come up with some sort of gear/attire that keeps her hair buns---but protects her or keeps her head warm. other than that it's a great design--you might want to do some more drafts for her weapon tho because it's looking a bit sci-fi ish. i think just simplifying some aspects of it will help with this.
matt: looking good, just watch for your anatomy sometimes--it's getting lost under the clothes and they are looking a bit thin and rectangular. thanks for the refs too they are really helpful
keep rocking it guys--you are kicking your own asses so hard and have improved a lot already
