EDIT-Sexiest bookworm ever
EDIT/made picture reasonable size, sorry guys, didn't realize my error till i checked back here.
an idea that took way to many pagse out of my sketchbook to finally hammer out, but i'm actually very happy with the results so far. i made some real progress personally on female hair and facial features, as well as the clothes. spent forever looking at any and all pictures of women's faces......anyways i'm hoping to try inking this sometime, when i'm less sick, and definitely want to colour when i get the chance....if you can't tell, it's a female scholarly mage type character, floating herself and everything she would need to relax on wispy smoke.......and at her feet is her fox familiar..sorry, old habits die hard. the smoke is kinda unfinished right now, mostly cause i hadn't had a chance to finish it before the scanner was available to me.
crits/feedback welcome of course

I like the gestures that form the hair, but i think the rest needs to be worked from reference to get the clothing and anatomy right.
I'd reccomend looking at women in nightgowns/dresses. the arm "holding" the cup needs to be reworked to be better sized--it looks small. the hand touching the fox has problems. the stomach area has too many lines. i wouldn't make the arm visible, unless i better defined it.
pretty--not quite sexy, yet. how about some leg, or hair pinned behind her ear. don't forget to bring out the eyes. maybe use a sharper pencil.
A refrence is a good idea. Do yourself a favour and head over to www.punchstock.com. Search for one or two pics that fit your idea.
Also, the pic is HUGE for an inline image, do us all a favour next time and make sure it's no larger than 600 pixels wide so I don't have to scroll around to look at the whole pic.
Lastly, develope some confidence in your lines. Start with some non-photoblue or something to do the rough forms and play with it there. Use the pencil to later to establish tighter lines, it also gives you a better sense of how the line wieght should be.
thanks for ideas guys, i'll give it a shot.......
also, i forgot to mention in my description, as it's hard to tell while in black and white, but the lines on the stomach area are part of the clothing, as in wrapped overlapping strips.....i realize it's hard to understand that when someone else looks at it....just to clear up that it's not folds in the robe
