Here are some reviews, sorry if I only point out the negatives, all entries were great but this takes long enough as it is.
Nice idea, but looks a bit flat and quite a stiff pose on the lady. I like the green veins on her inner thigh, though there could have been more of that to make both creatures more one whole. It's not really clear to me how the flesh part of the slimecreature fits in; is a fleshy creature emerging from the slime/is the flesh part still missing it's green skin? Could have used some work on how the re-animation actually works.
good twist on the theme. I like the idea of having a creature made out of bone although that could have used some work in the arms. Also love the little ref to cow87. My main problem with this is the emphasis on the creature rather than the character. I'd have preferred it if the character was standing in foreground with the beast behind him, this is CHaracter of the week after all.
This really borders on being a creature rather than a character for me... it doesn't even have a face. Furthermore it's not really clear to me how it would be a reanimator... best hint I have is a finger that might serve as some syringe? It shows that this was a quicky.
I like the atmosphere you were trying to create here but I don't really think you succeeded. If you had made the background darker and made the character a smaller part of the pic you'd be able to give more of that creepy mysterious ambiance. You seem to have shaded mostly with black and white, this makes the image look a bit dull. Instead try using more saturated shades for the shadows, or tint them towards the background color (blue/purple)
Nice one, nice composition, her back arm with the staff seems to be bent at an odd angle, or she's missing half of it, couldn't make sense of it anyways.
Might be my favourite piece of art this chow. I'd prefer more emphasis on the character of the reanimator for a chow though..
Nice one. if this guy is standing before a kettle of some sorts, shouldn't the rim bend downwards rather than up? I love his helmet but his mask seem a bit out of perspective; especially his left (our right) eye looks odd. Not a big fan of this particular red-green combi, maybe some darker shades would have worked better. Also not really clear on what those foreground elements are, they don't really do anything for the pic except break the flow; might have been better to get rid of them and remove the bottom 200 pixels
I'm no fan of the big round brush shading/lighting, look at my review of mega-supreme's one for some tips on that. Unfortunately it shows that you were in a hurry to get this submitted. Composition-wise I think you have a bit of space to grow; atm everything is basically just lined up next to each other without creating flow or balance. I learned a lot concering composition from watching FZDschool tutorials (episodes 1 & 3 in particular have stuff about composition I think
I really should have paid more attention to what you have been doing lately (other than watching soccer) cause I had no idea you had gotten so good, love this one. I like the visible brushstrokes; she's missing a belly button though. Lighting is good but seems off on her shoulders and her boobs (if they are portruding like they should) might have a bit more shade.. I like that you've stopped using lineart for the largest, maybe try getting the face lineless too?
yeah, great one. The biggest problem I have with this is the gray cloud on the right; the color is off. Otherwise I love the concept, the shading (on glass and Metal!) the lightning. I feel like his right (our left) hand/arm could have used a bit more finish though, especially since it's a bit of a focus point. Also the start of the lightning (near his fork-thingy) could have probably used some real white in there.
I like the idea but it doesn't read very well; the focal point atm seems to be at the very bottom (high contrast) rather than on your character. the abundance of lines and colors makes the pic look messy. I included a quick redraw to show how you can get the right focal points AND atmosphere with the same composition. If you make quick sketches like these before making the final drawing you can help yourself get a better read in the finished drawing.
Really quick one. Like the idea of the reanimation being a physical burden on the reanimator. almost like he's a victim.
Not really sure what is happening here, is she being reanimated by the tentacle thing? if so I'd say there's too little focus on the reanimator itself. If she is the reanimator I'd think the image needs to be tilted 90 degrees clockwise...? Lovely colors and atmosphere but a bit unclear.
First of all thanks for reviving this thing, and giving us the best CHOW turnout I've ever seen on the art forum.
I liked the red version better. Bit of a standard design this one, but well executed. His staff is a bit messy with the brushes over it as well as the right half of his face and some other areas in general.
Lovely lines, Composition is bland, odd/stiff poses. the cell-shading is well executed, but some of the colors could be a bit more saturated to my taste (blood etc.) The table doesn't seem to belong, both perspectivewise as lineweight-wise, would have been better without it.
I'm no fan of the anthro's and when I take that away, all that is left is a guy in a blue coat injecting something in another guy; pretty bland. I like the lighting.
lovely art, no big fan of her face/head; his could use a bit more contrast. Though I do like the idea I'd like to see it back in the drawing a bit more. A.t.m. nothing about the woman really says she's reanimating anything
