Knock! Knock! Anybody home? I've not seen any lights on or cars in the driveway for a bit. Hello!!
Hmm... everybody must be at work. Those poses should look pretty darn good when they finish.

We're all withholding our WIP's for the time being in order to stun you with amazing final entries in a few days... wink

(If only that were true...in my case I just haven't gotten much further with it)

Good thinking there, hadn't though of using that dress as a skating dress.

Looking really good. I am really impressed with the images we are getting from this month's contest.

Yes, this is really beautiful: pose, expression, clothing, composition...everything! A figure skater needs to make her performance look effortless, even though of course it takes a great deal of athleticism and concentration. It must be tough to show all this in a render, but I think you just about nailed it. Hard to think of any room for improvement (although something tells me you'll find a way to make it even better).

Maybe you could do something to make the skate seem more like it's actually sitting on the ice? Like a postworked skate trail or something?

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

Hello,

I decided to come forward without a big bang at the last contests day wink
The two brief encounters have been first drafts for getting to know what's really possible to pose.
While I've been posing the encounters, I've been posing Synchrony in Motion.
The reference image is also from Paul Taylors Dance Company.

During the last evenings I've got almost to the half of it.
The headache is not so much the posing than it's the perspective itself.
I've been posing in flat front view, like I wrote in the post about the front- and background reference images.

What do you think? Am I on the right path? Do you've got tips for the perspective?
Do you see something misplaced, mis-bended or mis-twisted?

Thanks in advance and I wish all of you some good, last days for the contest grin

This looks really good. smile
Maybe a few small things, the woman’s upper body is actually bend a little bit to the back
And the male is not looking up to the hands but more looking to her.
Maybe some shadow on the ground so you can see that they are connected with the ground.
That’s all
