    Don't be shy with the reflections. Also, if you have the castle reflected in the water, but not at full opacity, what you will see is what is underneath the water, not sky colour. But if you haven't...

    You will definitely have to practice your values and volumes. Also, the water needs to reflect what's behind it and the sky, it shouldn't have some colour to it other than that.

    Also use large brushes with low transparency. It feels like you're so scared of doing a mistake that you end up doing things small, or zoom in too much on the canvas.

    I'm not really sure about this but how about increasing the duelists' details a bit ? I mean, not in the way of spending the night doing it, but at least some sharp details here and there, where you...

    For a start, ditch any custom or intricate brush and tools, all you need is the round/oval brush, a dozen of layers and the eraser. Also avoid celebrity references as most of the lighting is very...

    You've tried to pull off some 2 point perspective with only one vanishing point. Find some tutorials or books or other references on perspective and learn how to build 1-2-3 point perspectives. I...

    I might add to work globally rather than on details. Here some 'details' like the girl are actually quite good, but she doesn't fit there at all, especially when it comes to lighting. That king has a...

    I get it now. I enjoy doing similar 'exercises', it forces me not to just copy but to really understand my references.

    I should have read your posts first though.

    The anatomy needs to be improved, especially the understanding of form. Also work on hands alot instead of avoiding them.

    I'd personnally make the characters a bit more visible, most likely by making them of brighter colours, and tone down the colours of the background a bit.

    Agreed, hard to say much. But I do think the eyes could get a bit more work. I mean, they look all dry andhave a few angles (not that round).. Maybe you could make them more 'lively'. I mean, for...

    You might not like this but how about starting over with a new composition ?

    The weakest part is by far the anatomy. Pick a reference (even a picture of yourself) and build the body before painting the armour. That way it's much easier to know what goes where. Also did you...

    Maybe it was clouds or something. It does seem weird though. Thinking about it maybe you could improve the composition even more. I mean, the snow right near the fire kind of makes it a bit dull....

    Build the squeletton with red lines on another layer. I'd move the character up a bit to make some space for his arm.
