    You have a style that shows through in all you work, keep sketching.

    Yes, I find adding color over value is a peculiar technique and definitely isn't for everybody, despite some people preaching it like gospel.

    I think the use of red must be done with consideration. On the girl character, the red adds too much visual weight to the legs, which already are quite 'weighty' due to their prominence.
    Hands holding guns are tricky, would be a good idea to get some reference.

    Muz,

    'As far as the weird lighting, id love if you could expand on that?'

    basically that throughout a given image your shadows appear at various points
    to be cast by lights from different angles and sometimes, at different intensities.

    The key to naturalistic images with form that really pops is to have a clear and
    consistent idea of what kind of light(s) are striking your subject and what direction
    they are coming from (including diffuse fill lights like the sky or ground reflection).

    But you know that

    hmm...I agree with Hunterkillers comment about the visual weighting of that image,
    but that doesn't really bother me. What is an issue is just that it seems unfocused
    and rushed. Just needs more time and care.

    'Absolutely agree on all that stuff, pretty much everything I've posted lately is still
    wip and I'm working on. I plan on finishing all this stuff more-so than anything else
    I've ever done. I just have a tenancy to work on multiple things at once as i get
    serious cases of art blindness and if i overwork something i end up ruining it unless
    i have breaks, so ill be working on two pieces of art at the same time usually.,


    WIP is fine. Just don't rush.

    Don't jump ahead of yourself either. Solve all the problems of each stage (gesture, form,
    details, values, ...whatever) before moving on to the next. Close the loop on your lines
    and blocks of value or color, don't leave gaps or loose threads.

    As to adding color after value...yeah unless you are doing some heavy color-building it just
    makes far too much sense. I wouldn't call it gospel but its hard to argue with the utility of it.
    I think its just a matter of getting the blending modes right and using a bold palette.

    That and understanding how value affects the hue and saturation of different colors differently...sigh.

    Keep working man. Keep posting too, we all want to see your work. Don't let anything stand in your way.
