    Grim Reaper or Alien Fetus?

    Alright, this is SUPPOSE to be a border for an image I'm working on. Its of a grim reaper who's cloak forms the bottom half of the frame and spirits/scythe the top half.

    I showed it to a friend and she said it looked like an alien fetus. So...yeah need some big pointers on how to make this look like a eerie foggy bringer of death and not a embryo.

    Extremely rough sketch but I need to know what's wrong before I start any serious work.

    Small fact: Arm facing 4th wall is suppose to be missing.

    From what I can tell, nothing is *seriously* wrong, but at this early sketch- it is hard to tell what is precisely happening. In the thumb, I thought it was a black planet with green ooze or something. I would get some reference of a sinister black cape and model yours off of that. As it is now, it isn't very detailed and formless. The scythe is fine, from the light sketch you've done. Perhaps make the background a dark red or something to make it differentiate from the figure. As it is, it just looks like a big gray circle, probably not what you were going for. Tighten up this rough draft some and make the character stand out more.

    People say it looks like a alien fetus cause the background is the same colour as the character which makes it look like one big shape, and he's green like an alien rather than pale and deadly like a grim reaper. Other than that, heed CharReed's advice...

    - Current project <- Crit away!
    - The Whyatt Sketchbook Any tips appreciated
