    Digital character painting

    This is a character design done in photoshop. This was more of an project to experiment with painting in photoshop then an actual design of a character. So any critiques you have I'd like to hear them.

    While overall you need more contrast in the shading, partly you need more darks in your values and some of the anatomy looks unnatural, like in the abs.
    Critiques on my work always welcome!!

    increased contrast and i made the abs less sculpted looking. I thought they looked a little too rock like ( i guess that's how you'd describe it?)

    Hi The Original E. This character is looking pretty good.. I did a tweak using levels in photoshop to make the value range have a little more punch. This is just a tweak - you would want this kind of range of value.. but the lighting could have more or less contrast depending on what kind of light you are going for.
