Update of day, I begin to clarify things in forms...
(i'd have time to finish it...this is my question...)
for those who don't know, I recommend posemaniacs.com > help for poses for bodies in motion or static.

the girl and the gun looks sweet, just got to work out the background. :)
06-12-2009, 01:30 PM
Here's small update to clarify the background ;)
06-12-2009, 06:32 PM
keep it coming, is that missile or rock Darby form the sky? :D
06-12-2009, 06:52 PM
These are missile! but I must still rework impacts and smoke.
06-12-2009, 09:12 PM
"To clarify", hum hum... :)
10-12-2009, 06:36 AM
That soldier is a fox! nice work, and fast progress.
10-12-2009, 11:45 AM
thank you omegamista!
I start to fall behind ... little loss of form, low moral.

Y'a des hauts, y'a des bas, life is sometimes like trampolin.
But I'm kinda sure in a few days, after some good rest or change of ideas, you'll get better.
10-12-2009, 11:38 PM
lookin good i like the progression
17-12-2009, 09:53 PM
I like the insectoid robot on the right corner, but the problem is our view go there. And the missile strike rocks.
Je me dis (peut être à tort), que les fêtes de fin d'année arrivant, ben il ne reste plus énormément de temps, alors j'avais un chtite suggestion qui pourrait t'aider à en gagner un peu, t'en fais ce que tu veux.
It's just a suggestion, and yes you can laught at me, I did it with a mouse on an old computer without digital tablet...
19-12-2009, 12:26 PM
thank you animationutz! :)
hello washka ;), your idea is interesting and deserves think about it for another illustration, but I prefer to keep it even if I didn't finish this challenge ... but I will do everything to finish on time, here's an update.
(I admire those who manage to make an illustration at 7, 8 hours maximum, Here's the thread of an artist who works admirably:
19-12-2009, 08:23 PM
This is looking good...cool posing for the character and that idea for the vehicle is really cool.;)
20-12-2009, 01:30 PM
thanks digitalinkmind! the concept (your avatar) that you put on GA is really sweet ;)
...little progress and some touches of color overlay.
20-12-2009, 08:16 PM
Keep up the good work!
Question: What's the white circle up her head? Angel, or she controls the blasting?
27-12-2009, 06:32 PM

27-12-2009, 10:26 PM

29-12-2009, 09:37 AM
hey washka! thanks mate, yeah it's an angel (another time, another galaxy...)
HI Insania, thank you for the kind words, see you ;)
oh thanks M_Cederstrom, I try to do my best but I don't know if I can finish ... I have trouble finishing projects at the moment, already with "Gender Bender", "The slayer" ... it I need a big kick in my ass ;)
...but I must say that I made this little picture
29-12-2009, 06:54 PM
times running out. Get this done.
29-12-2009, 10:02 PM
I need a big kick in my ass
Don't worry Santa is there, and you've just received your christmas present!:dance::dance::dance:
30-12-2009, 09:21 AM
Thanks for support Big ToE!;)
oOh yeah washka! looks great!!!! that's exactly what I needed:D:D
so...gI'll try to move but I'm very slow in 2D than 3D!
31-12-2009, 12:05 AM
I argued I had a good half day's work but this is not enough ... to get the result I want to achieve it would take me 2 days solid and as tomorrow is the eve of new year it will be hard I think to finish on time ...so I try, I try...
31-12-2009, 12:53 AM
I think deadline is january the 3rd, still some time, keep up da good work!
31-12-2009, 07:58 AM
you have a great style:D but i think that it's a very slow way of painting, a lot of great details take time.
31-12-2009, 10:44 AM
thank for support washka! I'll try...
thanks llex_paul ;) ! yes it will perhaps have to grow my style one day, because
I 'm long but I didn't do enough 2D...So next year I must do more than 2D!
02-01-2010, 11:14 AM
Hi all! ;)
Here's the latest update for the moment but I think I wouldn't have time to do what I want on this picture ... because I still have some work to do over time and will I missed, I think posting this final image ... although I'm disappointed with my work.
I'm still trying to finalize a bit before posting the final entry!
02-01-2010, 09:22 PM
Here's my final entry ... I finally took time but I'm here!
I hope you'll like, good luck to all!
(thanks for support, in particular, washka, M_Cederstrom, Big Toe)
Here's a link to see the image without compression because I have compressed so much in order to upload it :http://www.christiangonnelle.fr/def.bmp

I'm not a big fan of the red points onto the down part, they attract too much the eye there and I can't see the point (Pas fait exprès pour la tournure de phrase).
I would have erased the gun, it's enormous and in comparison with the girl: the details/style are differents so my eye don't like it. (Le surombrage lui a fait perdre beaucoup de détails l'ancienne version était mieux intégrée)
A little more shadows on the inner part of the hood would have let her face come out. The mouth is really low, I would have let the hood cover it.
I like the leg, clothes and boot parts, nice job there, even the arms!
Great job man! I was thinking you couldn't go so far because time left was really short but you did it. So congratulation and good luck with your final entry! Et bonne année 2010.

yes I have taken note of all your comments even if I don't agree on some but the exchange that gives food for thought ... some criticisms are justified!
so, I will try to work faster in the future because it is the key to success for me, I think.
the evolution of my style is also the key too!
I think I have given the best of myself, even if there are errors in my picture.
I will hope others artists are the same search in their own self-criticism!
so as I said always try to do better than last time!
