    Elite Squad

    Hi! I just started this painting tonight after watching Tropa de Elite, I love that film. Im going to make the siluett more interesting by adding pockets and such. Maybe ill add clouds in the sky too and another character, not sure about the character though. Anyway, there is still a lot to do so please tear it apart!

    The cloud overlapping his leg looks awkward and makes no sense. Such dense clouds are generally huge, so it gives the impression of the guy being huge too, as well as that he is part of the background rather than the foreground.

    In other words, I would move the character in front of the cloud.

    I would crit on the character itself but I'd rather wait until you have finished it a bit further .

    I do have to say you have a pretty unique style, I like it .

    Lhune: You are definantly right about that, it looks much better when I put him in the foreground. Thanks!

    So this is where im at right now. I dont know if im going to add much more stuff on him, I like the simplicity but well see.

    Ok, made some more changes which I think worked for the better. Its more clear now that he is falling and I also made the clouds in the same style which I think looks nicer.

    Very cool style! Love the colors too! I would suggest that you don't get too detailed in the logo you put on the hat though. I doesn't make sense to put that much detail in it since it's so small. Also something is up with his boot. The sole looks way too thick. You may consider shaving some of it off. Lastly, you may want to adjust the gun handle to fit his hand a little bit more or the other way around. I think it would be easier to cut a little away from the guns length to fit the hand since that hand is already a little larger than the other. Great job so far though. Interesting composition too BTW.

    Hope that helps,

    Dion

    Thanks for taking the time to critique. I agree about the logo but it doesnt matter I think because its very small anyway, its just at 100% you see it that detailed (I snacthed it from the net). Do you mean HIS left boot? I will cut some away and see how it looks.
    Im working on another image at the moment but I will continue on this one after im done with the new one. Again, thanks for your time!
