The only crit I would have is I'd like to see a little bit more of the blue light reflecting off of the "face". You have a *little* of it going on on the "eyes", but I think it could use a little pushing. For example, up on the "forehead" in the indentations and around the "lip" area.
(I put everything in quotes, because I'm not exactly sure if its supposed to be a creature or just some kind of structure, so hopefully you get what I mean).
Other than that, looks nice!

The Behemoth is a bible monstrous beast, one of most powerful, compared with Leviathan and Ziz. These are creatures who rule land, water and sky accordingly.

I really like what you are doing with the atmosphere and light. and the composition is pretty cool. Except the man seems to be looking past the most interesting part which is that blue flowing face like thingy. I would suggest maybe tilting his head toward that or maybe have figures coming out from hiding or something on top of it. While I think you have some good textures in the piece I think it could have those textures varied just a little more because it feels like it is all blending together to me. Oh btw I also really like the color pallet you are using that is working really well.
Hope that helps.
Imagination is not a total internal power but rather it is a reflection and multi-faceted projection of our experiences and knowledge. We take in information from the world around us and intuitively re-order it into something new. Something is not created from nothing but simply transformed from what was before.
January 28th, 2009 #7There my knowledge of lightning ends so I hardly know how to add light reflecting, but I will try. Thanks for suggestions!
I did a quickie paint over here to show my point. Just highlighting the edges and also get a little bit of "fill light" down near the mouth so it glows a bit.

can't find anything to crits, but yes except the lighting around it's mouth should be a bit bluer, but perhaps i don't really understand the structure of the tree that little guy is standing on,
otherwise, it's already awesome

Well, this is my first critique so here goes. I think you need more contrast for the foreground where the head is, to bring it forward and add more zing to it. There is a battle for attention between the skull and the background which is very pale. Since the skull is probably more important, give that area more definition. Maybe with lighter strokes in the blue.
Apart from that, very beautiful composition, unusual decor with interesting textures and idea.
Keep up the good work!

Excellent image, Tonic.
Perhaps a little cropping of the top and left side would create more focus. Also, maybe a bit more greenish on the foreground (bottom-left) and forest (top right)?

I think the main question is: What is the concept?
If it's a behemoth made of the surrounding materials or such, rising from the ground, why are there not bits and pieces of the ground falling down.
Is the attention of it focused on the figure to the left side of the painting?
If so, why is it not looking at him?
Is he standing on the hand of the creature?
If so, shouldn't the hand be larger and more hand like?
I think there is too much time given to the cool brushes and nice colours but not enough time given to the actual concept of the piece and what you are trying to convey.Work darn you, WORK! *cracks artistic whip*!
