Hey man, been following your chow progress - looking good man! you can choose to call it finished or work it some more, adding texture / rendering in details in the armor such as scratches, patterns and ornamentation. I think some of latter mentioned details would help the piece! Also a hue variation would help. It's over all quite brownish.. play around with Cold green hues on soft light and see if you can find some cool effects.
When I paint I usually start quite monochrome as you have here, carefully working in hues with softlight.
THANK YOU GUYS !! Your support is one of the main reasons to keep trying to get better ! I want to earn your respect and for that reason I try to improve every day !
Dope Fiend I will !
NickyBeats thank you mate I am glad you like it !
Parsakoira And good luck to you as well hope you finish your piece in time !
DefiledVisions I will come back to this picture and work on it further more, but for now I dont feel confident enough to do so , I just dont think that I have the skills to push this further right now ...I just need to go on my own pace and for now I think this is the best I could do ...I first have to improve ( on other pics) and then I will certainly return to this one
So the pyramid-piece had to wait today as my whole room was again aflamed by the sun ...so it was impossible to work on this very dark piece because there was now way in hell to see the little colour-variations in it ...so instead I browsed trough some SBs and found this one :
And decided to give this exo-skeleton/armour thing a try ...heres the result....hopefully not just a rip-off of one of Stephens works ...if so ...it wasnt intentional but subconscious . I ll name this particular unit "Cascades" as they are the heavy fire-support guys which cover the enemy with a constant barrage of gunfire .

so first update on the pyramid piece, defined the focal points and the overall atraction-points ...now its carving the shapes out , which will be a very time-consuming process I think ....but I really like the piece so I like working on it
Sean McClain Thanks for that piece will consider this very carefully ! Thanks for your consolation ! And it certainly will be a super uber great weekend because it will be packed with Art ^^ ...have a great weekend as well
Jasper_ thank you mate ! and I sure as hell will keep it up !
BTW: sorry for not dropping by your SBs ( not all of them ) because I am using a internet stick and only have a limited amount of stream per month and after that it becomes hilariously expensive ..( caused a 700€ bill one month ...) and I only have like 800MB stream left for 10 days ...will drop by soon! Promise !
so an update on the pyramid piece again ...next step will be to sharpen some edges and another layer of highlighting
