Hi all! Here's my submission for the contest. In an alternate-universe New York City, giant mutant bugs run rampant and rival bike gangs wear discarded exoskeletons for clout. Here's Whiskers, who got her nickname by taking down a beetle with particularly long "whiskers". That's what I got -- fun challenge! References used are the beetle, the bike, and the gun.

Hi everyone! These shoulders are TOUGH. I'm especially having trouble with the scale and angle of the shoulder blades. Like -- without many available landmarks on the front it's hard to definitively guess what the shoulder blades are doing! Any tips would be much appreciated!

I'm having a tough time finding the angle of the acromion process just by looking at the models, so I've been just extrapolating based on the angle of the scapula -- stan seems to place the acromion process so naturally, however; any tips?

Hi all -- I did the assignment over a couple of weeks and I definitely improved -- one thing I noticed was the quality of the final product is very much proportional to how good my first elipse is -- but drawing an elipse in perspective is tough! Stan's advice on elipses was great, but anything else would be much appreciated!

Tough assignment -- any critique would be much appreciated! Two specific questions: any advice on attaching the spine to the head? Where should that connection be? Also -- in poses where there is extensive foreshortening -- would love advice on making sure the length of the spine is preserved and accurate!
