    Hope that we like and to make recommendations.

    He might scare the shit out of his children.

    No technical comments, awesome.

    Useless Opinions , perhaps he could take his helmet off and hold it under his arm to communicate a little retirement. It will also allow you to put feelings in his face. But at a loss of awesomeness of the soldier design. You could make it so that you still get the features of his helmet from the angle it's huddling in his arm. Perhaps one more obvious battle scar or armor damage.

    The stepping down, communicates well but you need the comments for it to make sense. Is he undoing his armor with his hands? Took a while to notice. In that case it would be too early to have his helmet off, the helmet off I think would be if he had made more of a distance or where walking on a flat plane.

    Is that an arena he is sorta stepping out of? Took a while to notice. The idea of the arena is somehow less obvious in the final than the preliminaries. I think undoing the arc of the entrance is where it went. and the warm tone kinda made it fade away a little.

    If it's an entrance to his home city, then the hands somewhat seems to communicate anticipation. A little more tilt in the head perhaps to make it come through all that armour. His left hand could really clutch that leather strap, it kinda looks like it might be a weapon or something.

    Take that with a grain of salt really, Awesome stuff.

    Beautiful work, the reflection off the helmet and the whole classic paint style really shines.

    Great mood!

    I like how his hands are trying to unfold, and almost seems to reflect its been far to long since he came home.

    Critique;

    I think it would do the mood even more good, if the face was directing a bit more to the left upper side (as if he tries to regain his memory)

    The skirt armor that goes down till the knees, makes it look like if his lower legs are to short.

    Personally i would like more lighting, to see a tiny bit more detail. Since the mood is warm and ancient. Which perfectly fits your concept.

    Hehehe, it has been a while eh? Hehehe, Most prolly wondering if his family would recognise him especially if he has kiddies, or what type of entrance to make.


    But if he's a real brute he might not care. Maybe he's thinking"I hope that bitch made some dinner, I'm starving"

    or he might be the average delusional male thinking about his wife shagging his neighbor, making mental pictures of catching them in the sack.... in that case you might want to put his hand on his sword and speed him up a little, especially if his wife is HOT!!




    Interesting theme Ginogino, possibly a classic. D, love to see more, and it kind of grow's on ya, the realism is awesome, just one thing I picked up, though, the realism of the feet area is a little inconsistent when you compare it to the top half of the picture. The top and the reflection makes you feel this dude is really walking in sunlight, but the legs goes towards being sketchy. If this where intentionally done, maybe a more gradual shift but the little sharp line on the inside of his leg is a little itchy. It generates just a little more itchyness than effect and it pulls the attention away from your signature, which also deserves a teeny bit eh.

    You could just leave the whole concept as it is because it stirrs a continuation in the viewers mind. But then the title is essential.

    zaorr :)
    Thank you for your suggestions, your

    suggestions and meticulous, incisive. I

    will continue my work on this and will

    adopt your proposal. I also thought up out

    of his helmet, exposed by the control

    center of the machine, or a face full of

    expression, a mature man's face.
    On his left hand only to untie the belt

    armor, so there is a sense of easy, if it

    is weapons, perhaps the next will be the

    beginning of a story.


    zanzan:I will regularly update my work

    D@niel:Thank you, and I hope you regularly

    to exchange, please forgive my poor

    English, you can look and guess

    lorin:Thank you, encourage!

    PeNcIl ReBeLlIoN: I also go to your SKETCHBOOK , very great!

    Ravendell: Thank you for your careful observation, I will be making some adjustments to perfect him,

    raife: There will be more fat onto the map, and would like to see your proposal.

    like it love it! I definitely agree the helmet should go if he's coming home, but it looks so beautiful i would hate to see it go.

    excellent work.

    I am quite inspired.
