    The Miner

    Hey everybody, first time poster here. I just finished a digital painting course, and this was my fist time using photoshop for things other than photos. (Not trying to use this as a disclaimer.)

    I would love to hear any opinions or suggestions for both the painting and the concept. Thanks ^_^

    Three suggestions. One, work on the hands, they look very awkwardly placed and stiff, you'll benefit with a reference here.

    Two, think about that light source. Right now it looks like an action figure descending from a desk lamp. Is the light source natural or artificial? What time of day is it/what type of light?

    And thirdly, adding a few cooler colours will give this piece a real cavey feel, Make the highlights warm colours and the shadows cooler.

    I played around with the layer settings in GIMP. I added an opaque turquoise layer and found that overlay and burn both gave interesting effects that you could look at.
