Hmmm. A ghost? A vampire? Someone whose personality was uploaded into a 'droid? A victim of a nanotransform virus? (I'd count the teragen mists seen in last year's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. in that last category, ...)

Foradain is on the right

Foradain is on the right track and picked up on one of the two clues I left.

Ah, there we go.

BTW, it was several episodes before I noticed that Ms Bennet (who apparently has taken her father's given name as her surname) had a bit of an Asian cast to her features...

But the chin isn't what CR has drawn... *dives back into IMDB*

Foradain guessed that 7 posts ago and still nope. Though now that two different people have
thought it might be her I should go look her up myself, thanks for the link WP.

I'm going to suggest a pun

I'm going to suggest a pun might be in play here. Perhaps "former human" means we should be looking for an X-Man... Jubilation Lee would be my first guess from that gene pool, but Elizabeth Braddock, Xian Coy Manh, and likely others (I haven't read any X-Men comics in years) are also possibilities.

A pun?

A pun?

Me???


Whatever would give you that idea?

Also yep!
Foradain gets the gold star, it is indeed Jubilee.
Here then is my progress thusfar...



I also have not read any X-men comics but in looking for ref pics was surprised to find that...

SPOILER ALERT ---> Jubilee is now a vampire <--- click and drag over this area with your mouse only if you want to know or don't mind being spoiled!

So "former human" can be applied in more ways than one as she is part of the team called the X-men (X phonetically sounding like "ex" meaning "former" or "used to be") and is herself a mutant (Homo Superior) who in general claim to be formerly part of the human species (Homo Sapiens)... and then there's that other possibly spoilery thing above (it could be well known and I just haven't heard it but I'm being on the safe side here just in case).

Finally Kiyori Anoyui had a great guess considering all the little things they have in common, i.e. spiky hair,
large popped collar, goggles/visor, (wearing yellow, though not evident) and Foradain almost nailed it right out of the gate with his thing that kind of sort of relates to the spoiler thing which I will not repeat. Well done you two.

You're right that is completely unrelated.

Actually if you look closely I did "sharpen" her countenance somewhat

It is so nice to see a CR original in the making. It's been so long!

FX is the question! It can either make or break a drawing, imo. Luckily you're doing pencils and (most of) what you draw can be undone . I say give it a shot!

It has been a while since I did something for fun. Thanks.

Oh sorry I missed your comments guys my thread wasn't showing as having new posts for some reason.
Thanks for the input both of you. I'm thinking to go with a compromise of sorts, that is to say
I'm going to draw her a few different bodies some with FX and some without but on
different sheets of paper. If any work out I can seam them with the bust in
Photoshop. If none really work then I'll just leave it as a bust. :)


Putting finishing this on hold for a bit while I work on a old photo restoration project I was asked for help with.

I should've specified. (I didn't want to bum everyone out though) My 2nd Grandmother passed recently
and I am restoring a series of photos ranging from the 1930's to the 50's and the image that
comes out best will be transferred to a tile that will be placed in her headstone.

On the one hand I am saddened by her absence (it's not been easy staring at these
photos while I work on them) but on the other I feel honored to be
the one tasked with the crafting of her final memento.

So with all the computer

So with all the computer building I've been doing lately I found myself with some extra coin at the same time
one of the artists on my watch list had a bust sale and snapped up two and as is par for
the course I kept one for myself and decided to give the other as a gift.

I love a good surprise and she has no idea I'm doing this so...
without further ado here is DD as depicted by Eeren.

Surprise!

Yeah I love the way it came

Yeah I love the way it came out and the artist was very easy to work with, prompt and even willing
to make a few tweaks (she hasn't played CoH and so wasn't familiar with the CC).

For myself I got a bust of Chloe, coming soon, that looks amazing so far. A great experience overall.

Also F.Y.I. Though all the slots in her journal are taken (already) it mentions she may still
have a few open on her facebook page. These busts are a steal at twice the price
if you can get one, might just want to add her to your DA watch too in case she
opens more (she is saving for a Cintiq). That's I how I got mine in time.

What's keeping you from learning? I'm just going to end this respond with what CR said to bleddyn in my own thread...

ChristopherRobin wrote:

Well time I cannot help with (wish I had more myself) as for art related self esteem that comes from practice and seeing progress. It also really helps to have a place to post with a helpful atmosphere and other self taught artists of varying skill levels to offer encouragement, critique and tips.The City of Heroes forums was that place for me and I'm sure DD and others here could tell a similar tale. Look at some of our older sketches versus what we can do now and well, I would say I hold my abilities in much higher esteem now than I did just a few years ago.
Also collabs are great for starting out. If you don't feel like doing a whole design yourself or you want some help then contributing to a team effort is a great way to get going. I've been a part of dozens of collabs so far and I have more in the works. There's a whole thread of them here to look through if you want.Plus the end result often ends up being beyond the what each of the contributing individuals might have made on their own but they can all look at the finished result and know they were a part of making that happen. That's a great confidence booster too.

Then that Cloe drawing... This turned out so great! Look at the details on her skin. And the wings are flapping haha. Nice touch! Is that a new emblem btw?

I'll just quote DD who is quoting me and ask what stops you honestly etc.?

Fireheart: Yeah Eeren did a really great job.

Foradain: Oooo darn you Foradain! Now I have another web comic to read through.

DD: Hey no fair quoting me in my own thread!

Eeren came up with the flapping wings herself. I thought it a nice touch too.
It is Chloe's final suit and I get that look using one of my favorite things to do in the CC.
Combining multiple things in a way they were not originally intended to achieve a cool new effect.
It's the same way I got Shieldara a red, white and blue top in a game that only allows two colors per item.





I used a combination of The neck cover, leather witch top and Symbol10.
It's also the suit that has both the bat wings and the Bolero which was rendered impossible after the fact.
This one...

Thank you so much DD. I'm glad someone remembered lol.

Also that is an awesome gift! Both Brahn and Mysterious Mike know DD really well so
this meeting must've happened at some point right? I really like what Eeren did with both of them.


As you've seen elsewhere the puns have already begun.

Yes! Another triple collab (with Eeren this time) would be awesome.
I received your flats and started separating out the layers already.

Thanks again for the lovely gift and birthday wishes.

@Christopher @DD, Nothing

@Christopher @DD, Nothing really except for right now I am trying to learn to create a video game. I actually have a anime style drawing instruction book I got a long time ago that I learned quite a few things from. It's mainly the big question of: Do I wan't to draw, or create video games as a hobby and I am more leaning to the latter. But that does not stop me from wishing that I was really good at drawing xD

And enjoying all of you guys amazing artwork :)

Games need art, it seems

Games need art, it seems those two choices would not be mutually exclusive.

Well you could start a thread and share some of what you learned or if you have
any unfinished line art you could put it into the collab thread and see if anyone picks it up.

Biggest problem I have with drawing is the shading, I'm even afraid of starting the shading because I always see people on youtube tutorials do too much and I just don't want to mess it up. Especially the eyes. The eyes(at least in anime) are the most important part. My favorite part personally to draw is the hair, it's so much fun!

This was like my practice

This was like my practice drawing and had messed it up so I just tried the shading out and I immediately was like "nope" lol

Nice.

Nice.
I agree hair is one of my favorite things to draw too.

Two thoughts. 1. Get some non-lined paper. You never kow when a good drawing will happen and when it does you'll
wish you had done it on paper with no lines. You don't need a pricey sketchbook or anything just go to the local
office supply store and get a ream of typing paper. It only cost me like $5 here for a few hundred sheets.
2. If you get a good base design and you are afraid to ruin it go to a copy shop and get a bunch of photo copies made.
For a few cents per copy you can test out different shading styles over and over without risking the original.

Happy Holidays everyone and a Merry Chris-mas to all!

See what I did there? I know, I know I risk ending up on Santa's "no T" list but I figure
he will "Frankin-sense" what I meant and just "Noel" that my heart was in the right place.

Foradain: There is indeed...

Foradain: There is indeed... or more precisely a face is appearing
around those eyes as I continue to draw it. I tend to detail the eyes first.

Charles/Clonganart: Where would be the fun in that?
Also welcome to the best part of the forums!

err the rest is in the works but here is a minor update now that I am done penciling the eyes.

Aye, that they do!

Aye, that they do!

Let's see: Blue eyes; basic domino mask, but it looks thinner than Darth Delicious' mask...

Seize the art? That sounds

@ Dark Ether: Seize the art?
That sounds like it would be Thor's Assassin's motto. YOINK!

@ DD: Well Jon Snow knew at least one thing.

Also...


Still a few details to add to her face and I am also working up a body in Photoshop but otherwise
I am quite pleased with the look so far. That mask took almost as long as the whole rest of her head though.

Well, to be honest, there

Well, to be honest, there were quite a few who were eager collectors of artwork, so it fits a fair number of us.

That is true. I just mention

That is true. I just mention TA cuz he was a the biggest I knew of and his avatar was literally
him flying through a museum going YOINK! as he grabbed all the artz. I remember the collecting monster
I helped create (Caemgen lol) and then there was Bayani and BrandX, Goblin Queen and Feral Cat, Sapphic Neko
and MB and a bunch more who were there before I ever found the 606 forums too like TurboSki, FireBrandi,
Larissa Rasputin, Sheline(sp?) Crimson, Deebs, Invincibelle, Soul Train etc. and I'm sure there are more.

I wonder how many are still around and collecting? Anyone here?

...

...

... and then there was some guy who used to collect under the heroes Tanks 4D
Memories, Ms. Frost and MeerCat... can't for the life of me remember who that was though.

Just finished reading "Death

Just finished reading "Death's Bright Day", the latest RCN book by David Drake. I was amused to see in it a Defense Minister named Christopher Robin. No evidence that he was an artist, but neither was there mention of a bear with very little brain. ^_^
