    There is much more to this composition than a simplistic balance of masses. Here the masses are secondary (or even tertiary) to converging lines, strategically placed color spots and working with...

    Looks like you are skipping stages - going from rough outline right into detail. Try going from the most general to detail more gradually - breaking down the body into the biggest lit masses, smaller...

    The light from the structure (robot?) in the back looks red, but the rim light on the figure is cyan and affecting nothing else in the picture. If it is coming from the robot, it should be red and...
