    First off, the energy in this piece really got my attention. Great work.

    I do have a few sugestions that I hope will be helpful.

    first. get more depth, you can do this easly by giving perspective to the tentacles grabbing the guy and also by having more contrast up front and giving atmospheric values to you victim/warrior.

    easy fix.

    another easy composition sugestion, make your guy way smaller than your monster, right now there about the same size and they compete with each other.

    reconsider centering your figure as well. the pic may be more compelling if you put him off to one side (rule of thirds)


    note where I marked "A" there is a pinch point (where two elemnets V) this traps your eye and leads you off page.

    lastly, there is no rythm to your tentacles try re- arranging them in a more cohesive order.


    wow, I get wordy, I hope I made sence.

    Keep painting , I'd love to see more,

    tentacles!

    wow you've been posting so much good stuff lately and this one, it's still early but it looks like its gonna be great... makes me wanna watch pirates of the caribbean again,
    one thing though is that i wish you would leave you're old stuff up rather than amend it as you work so we could see the evolution of it.
