I started to do a Pegasus, but after some frustration tried a humanoid form. I wanted to make it more mythological than human and ended up making a mask-wearing gremlin of sorts. I think I need to layer the drawing more, I tend to just draw over the same section too many times trying to emphasize a feature, which ends up making everything look cramped (and small). Ill try again.


Sketch #1:
Sketch #2:

Also, on a side note: Could there perhaps be a thread dedicated to tutorials where people could post ones they found to be particularly useful? Maybe every so often the best of those could be collected and organized into the main post?

My Submission. I didn't make the Air Nymph a very nice person though...

Why Else Would Air Walk?

A quiet night reigns over the elemental plane, a silence which couldn’t possibly last. As if on queue a fell wind begins to blow. Air, drifting formlessly over the land, is not pleased by what she hears spoken amongst her sisters. Beware traveler, should you pass this way, that Air might bottle her rage. All will be the peace and calm of the doldrums one moment, a howling maelstrom the next!

“Why, they must take delight in these insults! Joy and merriment at my expense? I think not. I will not see my element trivialized, reduced to some minor convenience! Dragons take flight because I allow it. Clouds flood rain across the plains by my will.

Earth haughtily declares I am handy at clearing her mountains of dust…
A cool night upon sun-warmed stone? Blizzard!
Worn away to dust then blown away!

Fire thinks I make her flames dance delightfully in the twilight glow…
A lively brush fire brightens the night? Typhoon!
Mere kindling without the strength of my winds!

Light thinks I arrange her fireflies in such beautiful constellations…
Fireflies dance amongst the graves? Squall!
Ha ha! Scattered to the four corners of the world!

But, what is this? The others walk the plane as well. They will make light of air as these three have. Will Death claim I make her bones rattle and trill through the night like so many drums and flutes? Aether will surely ignore me entirely. Dark will claim the wind’s howls and moans were her own idea. No, I cannot allow such insults to continue. Drastic measures are clearly necessary…”
So... the Air Nymph went to create unstable gas?
Nah, Air took on a humanoid form like I implied the other Nymphs were doing so she could personally start beating them for insulting her (that's what the title is implying as well). I decided not to mention Unstable Gas since everyone always associates it with flatulence.

@Krava: This took way too long.

@Krava + TimerClock14: I'll make the background less neon.

@Patchx94: Ah, see this is what I was worried about. The shading is clearly visible on my computer, but I tried another computer and had the same problem as you did where only the highlights are visible.

Here's another version of my changeling. The background is simple since I still need to figure out how do do a decent one. I will leave it at that for now. I am hoping that as I improve I will be able to work faster.

Edit: Just saw this on another screen and it is much darker for some reason. Is the white shading on the black ooze clearly visible for everyone else? I am hoping its just that this screens brightness/contrast settings are messed up.

Well, I thought we had until Monday to finish assignment 1, but seeing as assignment 2 is already up I guess I will post the progress I made on 1 and move on to 2. I was mostly just playing around and figuring out how to work the program. I posted an image without the sketch lines I showed in my first post and with only some basic colors for most of the image. I was trying to make the black ooze the creature was rising from first, using light reflection to give it shape. I think I was starting to get the hang of it by the end, but I am still not entirely happy with the result.

Cookies for the one who makes a decent and entertaining story for poor air nymph without mentioning her intestinal functions!
A CHALLENGE IT IS!

Please change my reservation from Eternity to Air Nymph!
