Hey, I don't have a stable of models so I use the internet all the time for my references.
Added bonus....no drama!

Hey, the drama is part of the price you pay for correct shading. Though that didn't work for my last figure of Amanda, so I added abs from Ms. Stella Maxwell from one of Susie's Victoria's Secret catalogues. Not too skinny now, but doesn't look right to me. Oh, well
Had to use the net, because of my protagonists, one is extinct, one is rare and just recently caught live on video, and one is a cartoon. Heh, see if that confuses you

I was considering that option. As a wor dof advice, if you intend to make that an option in the future, you should make sure to have your number of ptions in any given section be easily divisible into numbers of dice faces.

E.G.: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 , 12, 20, 100, etc.

Or provide percentile tables.

All right. Got my entry done this evening, despite considerable bothering by She Who Must Be Obeyed. Now to get it scanned.

I got my idea for this one and the Acrylic Challenge and a rough drawing for each. I'll start on my paintings tomorrow, I hope.

Yeah, I dragged my feet, working on Susie's portrait, then I got my ref drawings from the Net and it all came together in my mind. I still can't believe how quickly the sketches went onto the paper (and in mirror image, yet!) and how good the composition worked out. Maybe it's because it wasn't a woman or a portrait. I fuss a lot over those.

Question Re: Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat! September 2017

I'm not doing this Acrylics Challenge. There are many things that intrigue me about Hamlet, but the only thing that I would be inclined to do pictorially would be Ophelia, and what can I have to say about Ophelia that Millais hasn't said already?

Re: Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat! September 2017

Hey all, I'm back. My mother became gravely ill so I'm glad I was there but it was a bit rough.

I'm loving this challenge, what a great idea!

Attalus, that is the penultimate Ophelia! What a beauty it is.

I agree, Virginia. Best of the Pre-Raphaelites, IMHO.

Sorry your mom was ill, hope she is better, now.

One of my favorite art movements, Pre-Raphaelites, so much to love.

Re: Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat! September 2017

Thanks all. Unfortunately, she could go tomorrow, she could hang on for months. She is refusing treatment and much as I disagree with her, it's her choice to make. I just hope it's a peaceful painless end. Very sad all in all but I've made my peace with it, though I have my moments of course.

Finished mine for this Challenge, I like my creatures, they are adorable, I want them as pets!
Too bad they are not real.
