    Some help with this before I submit

    Working on something for a local art contest. I'm not really in to fan art, but the contest is tied to the release of Assassin's Creed II so there's a theme. Thought it would be a fun thing to do. Some critique would be nice, tomorrow is the last day I will be able to work on it, I don't think I'll have time for any elaborate background work. Color perhaps, but I'm not sure it would enhance the end result in this case... I'm going to print the final. Thanks!

    Yeah, just double-check your anatomy/articulation. As for color, none seems to be needed, but a nice arterial spray would be nice.

    casting an extra shadow would help distinguish the guard from what-ever-is-the-name-of-the-guy-in-assassin's-creed. Some movement blur in addition to the arterial spray could be interesting and finally, I would suggest you put a touch of color or something to make your piece more complete if it's a contest submission.

    anyway, it's a really nice piece you've got there. I love the wrought feel, and it's quite the same style as the concept arts I've seen from it. Best of luck to you with the contest.

    Thanks for the criticism everyone. I've tried to address some of the things you pointed out. I'll have to call this finished at this point, getting it printed at 50x70cm tomorrow, that will be interesting because it looks quite different on the three different screens I've viewed it on... I'm not entirely happy with it, I think there is a lot of room for improvement, it isn't as dynamic as I would want and it isn't very inventive either... I added some blood, makes for a nice graphic element but I find it a little bit contradictory to the pose, I imagine him being about to attack rather than having just attacked the guard, but hey, what better use of the artistic license than to put entirely unmotivated gore in your pictures?
