Idiot's Guide to Possession
I've been working on this for a digital illustration class, on and off since Halloweeny. The assignment requires two figures, one being of a fantastic nature and this is my response.
Any crit would be helpful. I've looked at it for too long so I'm not sure where to start first.
Thanks ahead of time. I look forward to having my hide tanned. Mind you I'd like to use this as a portfolio piece, so any advice to bring it to the next level would be exemplar.

I would bump the contrast on the guy (up the highlights) to help him stand out a bit more. What do you want to be the main focal point of the piece?

It's cool, still feels sketchy.
To take Bai's thoughts further, the whole piece seems to be rendered in midtones, without much in the way of either highlight or shadow.

I think there are some ok shadows in the demon thing, but yea... really lacking in any sort of highs.

Multiple candles = multiple shadows. Most will be light/transparent, but get twice as dark when they cross over. They will look crisp towards his body and softer further away - of course.
Expand the canvas, feels too constricted now.
Really nice idea, good work so far. Keep it up.

Your image is not consistent at all imo.
If we only talk in term of value, that candle light is not bright enough.
Eventhough it was, candle light is rather weak anyway, especially in a setting where it has to compete with sky light, like here in your piece.
If you agree with me on this you'll also agree that, consequently, that candle light couldnt reach the demons pectorals, let alone its face.
To fix that my suggestion is that you up the value of the candles, and bring in another lightsource by making the pentagram glow. What do you think?
Also ive got a question, why do they seem to be reaching out for eachother?
