    There is a rainbow in my heart.

    Sunshine of joy because the chapter is good

    Tears of sorrow that this is the last one

    :wink:

    Oh yes there are there are many, many typos. Much proof reading lies ahead. :cry: The characteristation still needs a fair bit of work.


    Err... that was colourful. :-?

    my comment, a little bit small for a chapter, i readed this in half an our, a lot fatser then the other chapters :grin:
    looking forward for the next chapters. i'm so exited to learn more about the nameless.

    say, why does start fleets don't have any submarines (or spacemarines :-? ) ships, painted completly black, engines that run silent and have (almost) no burst, devices that absorbe radar beams, looking smooth untill panels are being moved to allow guns to be stuck out,....
    that would be a mirical warship in galactic battles. you have no idea that it's there until it fires on you.

    My ship can run silent. Catch is you can't use the engines so unless something blunders into range (which given that space is big, is somewhat unlikely) you're unlikely to achieve anything.

    Saddly there aren't going to be more chapters for a long while. Planning on doing a hell of a lot of proof reading. [groan]

    Very good! Face is very realistic and shows the intended attitude. Also there is a Spatha. I like Spathas. :grin:

    As for the defenders...

    [​IMG]

    They're dying for a hug. :grin:

    This is my impression of the Golden Snakes, which are pretty much the ultimate in human killing machinery in the story I'm writing. They are of unknown origin, know no life but soldiering, and it is their job to guard the Emperor's person. A near unsurmountable obstacle to ordinary enlisted men...

    This I'd have to say in the spirit of honesty isn't your best. Individual bits are excellent but somehow she's ended up less than the sum of her parts.

    Wings: Beautiful, convincing and highly detailed but from a composition stand point they are kinda swamping the picture, the rest of her looks like its been shoved into a corner.

    The Hand: Okay foreshortening and hands are both bloody difficult to do well and this is a fair effort. Like the wings its a bit over prominent in the composition and the little finger looks much too small.

    Head: The proportions of the face look a lot better then you other pics but the mouth looks a bit odd. Hair is simple but very convincing.

    Body: No crit or suggestions here, all looks good and the all the lines look like they’re in the right places.


    Hopefully this has come cross as constructive crit if it hasn't then I'm probably about to get banned. :-?

    I agree on Ebar. the wings and hand are very good but the face looks just simply, if you know what i mean.
    Still, very impressive and very beatifull :D

    :eek: She has a big hand growing out of her side!

    :grin:

    Serious comments... I like it, though I do mostly agree with Ebar. I seem to recognise her... :wink:

    I'd never ban a fellow artist over criticism! This can only be helpful.

    Basically what you're saying is that the wings and hand are both too prominent, am I right? I'm not going to comment on the mouth as it literally gave me headaches - it just never seemed right. If it still doesn't do so now, I can't help that without losing all my hair and the precious remains of my sanity.

    The wings are indeed a bit too obvious, this is mostly because drawing all the feathers has made them darker than the woman. On a white background this draws all attention to itself. This is why I have added the shaded corners and made her hair black. As to the hand - it's too large, I'll agree, though I don't see the flaw with the little finger. I chose this perspective to make it seem as if she actually reached out, but I guess it didn't turn out as I had intended.

    I suppose I will need to practice some more...
    Oh, and Ricky, you don't recognize her, this one's different! Different I tell you!

    The thing is, when I draw a woman's face, I just never find it satisfactory until I end up with something roughly like this one. It's nothing to do with a percieved ideal beauty or anything, I just keep fiddling with the details until the eyes and nose and mouth are just so, and then when I take a distance I see that I've drawn the same woman again.

    Would it be arrogant if I said you were lucky to know someone who looked like that? :grin:

    Yeah, then i can ask Roel to make a drawing of her :grin:
    However, it's not what you think. She isn't my girlfriend. She's just a girl i know of college. We are just normal friends.

    That's not what I thought, since it isn't what you said... If you had a girlfriend like that, wouldn't you be showing off a lot more? :grin:
    That's the best thing you can be, in my opinion.

    So he doesn't have to bring her along, Ricky.

    Unless she's into tanks! :grin:
