You can't use one that you have already done earlier on, I believe the rules stated. So couldn't use it anyways.

I think he might have meant he 'already' finished his submission. Like it went quicker than he thought. 
Wish I could loan you mine catmanexe, haven't used it since I upgraded to Win7 and stupid USB drivers flaked out.

hot red demon chick with wings, one couldn't ask for better creative ingredients to work with. 
 
I really liked this challenge, although not being familiar with the character, she's easy to get comfortable with, and after 8 hours of staring at a screen she gets easy on the eyes.
It's also nice to not have to worry so much about costume accuracy and just have some fun with visualizing. 
Well done on the pick priest. Here's my interpretation:

Thx guys, I modeled her and the wings first in 3D nude. Then I modeled out the jewelry, cloths, and 3 types of hair patterns to overlay. The fire I did a front, middle, and back layer for depth of field in photoshop with the help of a plugin from alien skin and some hard/soft light layering to give it a glossy reflective kind of look.

As much as I could do WITHOUT a scanner and tablet . So noise crept in.....
 
Ok.... 13 rings any bells?
I was thinking about "unlucky 13" when doing this.....

@spawndon: sweet work, like the design and coloring. The Demon smoke face in the flames is a great touch.

haha had some downtime at work, heres what I got. if it's hard for you to make anything out, she is jumping down towards an ogre and slicing him in two.

@Om1kron:
Whoa.  That angle and position of Purgatori's body are beautifully done.  Its almost familiar, like someone swimming but she's actually flying.  Plenty of action, incredible.

yea the action and pose are very powerful visually, and who doesn't love seeing an Ogre get split like that. Great job Om1kron.

I'm not overly happy about my technique on this one. I resorted to the Greg Land techniques of using a model photo reference for tracing...
 
  
edit: Ok, so I've been convinced that this is okay to submit to the showcase...
 

#32 Posted by Om1kron (1168 posts) - - Show Bio

more or less, where did you find the model o_O hahaha j/k

I can tell you that regardless, your execution and final post is very well done. I do not see any difference using a model than if someone manipulated a 3d model to use and then embellish, if that is allowed then yours should be too. I really like your entry and hope you enter it.

gotta agree, the picture looks great and the coloring and shading is very nice and smooth. If your trace is anything like my 3d models you still need to do a buttload of work on it and that's what is worth showing off. If you started with lines and produced that, you should be happy with the results, it's a good effort that is only going to get better with each challenge.

It is called art "work" : )

I just about always use photo reference but I never trace but good work is good work.  I didnt enter I wanted to too but I wish you all luck.  I may yet put up a quick sketch.

Ok I just realized it's October 8 and art is due. When the deadline ends today, I am not sure. Planned to go to bed early but got carried away with my entry. It's almost done...
Due to the fact I keep missing my deadlines for ongoing contests in the recent past and have several unfinished pieces of late, I hope I can have this extended for a few more hours. May not need them..... Thanks in advance!!!

Sorry for the poor quality. I don't have a scanner yet so I had to take it from my phone.

Ok this is a quick entry from me just to get back in the swing of things.
