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!

2006-09-07 [moira hawthorne]: there are a few things that are bothering me tho... like C'serio's neck... since in the reference photo there was fuzzy hair there... and his arm... can you help me ?

2006-09-08 [jsun]: Well, I'm not sure if this matches the photo reference exactly Moira and it's only a subtle change but I think it makes a difference. Let me know if that looks right

2006-09-08 [moira hawthorne]: oooh I dont think it would curve that much... not looking at other profile photos.....

2006-09-09 [jsun]: The new changes you've made have really helped your drawing Moira. You've really managed to work out C'serio's hand and his neck muscles as well. And the "characteristically faery" hand of Aodh looks better too. I also like the way you've fixed his chest/stomach area because it makes him look more "Fit". I still think C'serio's neck needs to come in just a bit more. Afterall, he is leaning into the kiss. Or if that's something you don't wanna do and you're still not happy with it, you could always throw a nice strand of his hair down over that shoulder. :) Good work Moira

2006-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: thx u! I think Im happy with it now... argh I worked on it till 4am last night... tho I started colouring... I like how their nipples look like they are touching (tho they wouldnt be)... now got to dress them...

2006-09-09 [jsun]: lol, good stuff! I'll check them out again tomorrow after I get off my graveyard shift

2006-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: Bill just got off midnights... he got two weeks of afternoons...

2006-09-09 [~Lady Morgana~]: Of course I see it now Moira!!! Awesome, really :D :D :D

2006-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: *happy* would you like to see the colour started?... mostly its the back ground and tinting the lines... I like having a background ground to start with

2006-09-09 [~Lady Morgana~]: Yes that would be awesome! :D

2006-09-09 [~Lady Morgana~]: Yaaay! Pretteh Moira!!! <3

2006-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: I hope its just keeps getting better... running out of time!

2006-09-09 [jsun]: Wow, that's a great background Moira! LOL totally fitting to the occasion! Looking good so far.... chop chop... faster! :)

2006-09-09 [moira hawthorne]: yes I had to give up on the idea of the kitchen baking a cake disaster... as i would never have time for bowls and spoons and all kinds of stuff.. cover in batter.. icing.. and mess.. and the destroyed cake!

2006-09-10 [jaderii]: Ooo, wow, you made the jeans look so good! It actually looks like the material. o:

2006-09-10 [moira hawthorne]: thx u Ive been working hard to get the texture of jean right... I think this is the best I manage so far...

2006-09-10 [moira hawthorne]: thats it for tonight... one more day to work on it...

2006-09-10 [dayah]: ooooh its looking great moira.

2006-09-10 [moira hawthorne]: thx u... Im done for today...
I had a big steak dinner and cake for my birthday

2006-09-11 [jsun]: Wow, that's coming along very well Moira! And,... additionally, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
