hawthorne's WIP CRITIQUE

WIP = work in progress - I need feed back!
will put art up here for artist critiques when I have it to show
Ill always put up the newest update here
so you are encouraged to watch this page

Tsuki Bound!
it a running gag for years now
about what sort of bait should be used
to draw them to the trap and such

newest WIP stuff!

Sidekick name: The Bright Idea (muse as sidekick)
Strength: 2 physically 10 mentally
Superpower: Generates Inspiration Motivation and A General Lack of Attention to Common Sense Time or Mundane Obligations
Day Job: Unknown... where she disappears to Unknown
Background: Unknown... maybe created from leftovers at the begining of time itself
Hero She Works For: Alot! she is a real scamp and gets arould to many artists mothers
and anyone else who has ever spoken the words, "Another fine mess You've gotten me into!"
Yup every hero needs someone who gets him into trouble...

I had a great idea for the Valentine Art Competition

too bad I CANT enter it
it be me and Aodh together kissing
me as a photo... in other words real life...
and Aodh as a digital painting...

the theme is Forbidden Love

Forbidden b/c
1... we exist in two separate mediums...
and 2... b/c he is my alter ego...

I CANT enter it b/c...


Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

All mediums, except photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted.

I love the idea of real world meets painted world..
me and Aodh meeting... and the reasons why its forbidden...

but ET doesnt


going to use this painting
of C'serio © Lanisaz [will be replaced by me]
and Aodh & art © moira hawthorne.
here is the photo-reference I used
<img0*300:stuff/WIP%20CA%20colour%2014.jpg> * <img0*300:stuff/P1280023.JPG> * <img0*300:stuff/forbidden%20Val%20wip1.png>
this still needs alot of work...
or I may get a better... in proportion photo taken

ok new photo of me... with better proportions to match Aodh
plus the colours are better
and you can see I decided to fade Aodh abit... as if he is more imaginary than real
got to fill in parts of Aodh's body that have/had C'serio

Im entered in the ET Dark Arts Competition
in the art category ET Dark Arts entries

I reworked a painting of mine... its an old fav... but I never did think it was quite finished... what you think?

<img0*200:stuff/twin%20captive%20moon.jpg> * <img0*200:stuff/twin%20captive%20moon%20dark%20art.png> * <img0*200:stuff/twin%20captive%20skull%20moon%20dark%20art.png>

added another skull
im not sure if its done now...
im tempted to add flames but that might be to much ..what you say?
I think I likes!

2007-03-07 [Remos Page]: <img:stuff/mood14-gif.gif> (ok then) run to the back of the room lol

2007-03-07 [Lord Dog]: what I meant was see how you have his face elongated on the top one? Just widen it so that the ears almost touch the sides

2007-03-07 [moira hawthorne]: I think I am going to... ... basically instead of stretching the whole thing and warping it to an elongted shape .. Im gonna break the elements up... and size them individually to fix as best as possible... but .. the reason why I didnt want to do that was the varigated b/g.. so I'll have to clear it out and make it again

2007-04-24 [dfreetolove]: I love it

2007-04-24 [moira hawthorne]: which... it???

2008-02-13 [moira hawthorne]: new art up ~ any one want to pick this apart?

2008-02-14 [Cia_mar]: i like the leaves... but i think that the large one on teh left needs downsizing... it competes too much with the fay for drawing your eye

2008-02-14 [moira hawthorne]: cant be smaller... its in front of her...
Im trying to make it like the one on the right... but its closer so sortta abit more detail... like all the leaves fade as them get more distance

2008-02-14 [moira hawthorne]: need to make it less 3D... looks too thick now...

2008-02-14 [moira hawthorne]: ok I think it is finished now... anyone have any other opinion?

2008-02-14 [Lord Dog]: Was thinking you could make it curled or something to show more movement but nt really necessary

2008-02-14 [moira hawthorne]: ooooooh that would of been good... I was using the photoshop leaf brush as a template... they dont curl... damn now it looks all flat to me!... but not enough time to start drawing leaves from scratch!

2008-02-27 [Lord Dog]: Looks better both the leg and the arm...

2008-02-27 [moira hawthorne]: i need to go to bed now... but other than curling the leaves... which im thinking of doing now that I have time... is there anything else?

2009-01-20 [Rebulous]: Yes, enter it in the Dark Arts competition. Most definitely. I think your intuition is right on the flames - it might be too much.

2009-01-20 [moira hawthorne]: wait wait... im just about to upload them now... tell me what you think when you see them

2009-01-20 [jaraden]: i SURE as hell likes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this painting looks WICKED!!!!!!!!!

gapes in awe!!!!

and get's wood.. har har, just kidding!

2009-01-20 [LynnAnneBrown]: The flames worked out really well, I like

2009-01-20 [Rebulous]: OK, I stand corrected. The flames do look good. Looks almost like something out of a DOOM video game. Definitely dark.

2009-01-20 [moira hawthorne]: ok I think its a go than... thx for all your approval... Ill put this one in the competition wiki ...wish me luck! there some awesome pieces in there already... [dayah]'s and [Pnelma Tirian]'s both are awesome!

2009-01-20 [Rebulous]: Yeah, maybe, but so is yours!
