    Fixed the armor and added more detail. Also made the energy blast bigger but now I'm not sure if it's heading in quit the right direction.

    Hey on the painting I think you should bump up the contrast in the middleground rock values so that there is more separation between that and the background. It seems like the midground is your focal point because of the intensity of light on those figures. If so, I think darkening the lines in the rocks there will complement that. Also, the hands and head of the bottom left figure are tangent to the edge of your composition. That creates a sort of tension in the viewer, but is easy to fix by expanding the drawing there or scooting the dude over.
    Other than that, good job! I like the consideration you put into different color schemes. keep painting!

    I'll keep the suggestions in mind next time I update that piece - especially the midground contrast stuff.

    I think I have a better idea of the character now that I've devoured some of the Howard short stories...

    hey man good stuff here. I think you should try with less transperancy, try keeping your opacity above 60-70%

    Probably not precisely what you meant (I'm betting you were thinking more paint-type stuff) but I went to a variable brush size and fixed (100%) opacity for this one.

    The composition is very interesting in that last one. The poses look a little stiff though, so try changing that up. Also,draw more attention to teh ape shaman, otherwise you stare at the frint harpie first, and the shaman is actually the main focus.

    Cheers

    I'll write up what I learned from doing the cliff fight soon.

    Janos: Sorry I didn't respond earlier - I was real tired last night... That piece was a composition exercise mostly. I agree with all the stuff you pointed out - I didn't have a good idea of what the poses should be when I started and that shows. Probably not going to go back to it (but you never know...) because it was just an exercise though.

    Some stuff I learned from working on the cliff fight for so long:

    Okay, maybe not the orangutans...

    One of the main things is that when I use thumbnails to figure out a layout I have to get to the point where I understand it, work out all the poses, the layout, focal points, etc. THEN and only then proceed to doing the piece. Another big one was using depth to pull attention in - and how to do that.

    All stuff I've got to work on, of course.
