    The lighting seems to be all over the place, everything is in conflict. I can't figure out where the light sources are, but whatever lights up the genie is not what lights up the background. Either make it more realistic, or just do away with lighting. Don't try to sit between two chairs.

    The perspective on the column does not match the perspective on the tiles.

    The design itself is good. Funny but clearly not a nice fellow. That goal you did meet.

    I think the back blue light seems a bit out of place, maybe it would be good to put in the light source of it.
    is him floating in the mid air?
    maybe consider make that pot (sorry don't know how would you call it) stand out a bit more. Currently it looks like it sticks to the guy.

    I like the design and very nice work, good luck!

    I'd just repeat what andilisa said about the pot/goblet thing. I can't tell whether it's a part of the geenie, or if he's in front of it or what.

    You're right... There is confusion in this picture. I have to work on the genie shadow on the ground. I would be clearer he is floating. The "pot" is in front of him but it's not obvious. And the lightning is not good yet.
    Thanks for the reply, really good advices ! Thanks !

    It's not finished yet but I think it's better. I will work on the reflections on the ground in the next step.

    I don't like the focal point of the image to be right at his crotch. Upon first glance at the image I was very confused as to what exactly was going on. The shape and placement of the object floating in front of him doesn't help me with this.

    Was this intentional? I'm not trying to be crude and it doesn't seem like it bothers anyone else yet, but this is (in my opinion) a problem.

    I liked the girl in the version before you last one. She seems too lost in the spoogey haze now.
    Very nice overall.

    The different rendering of the character to the background doesn't quite gel.

    Overall I think this looks really nice. Well done A few things to point out though...

    The column in the background would almost certainly get some of the red light that hits the genie, as would the skulls, the rats, and the necklace. I also totally agree with Quigleyer about the crotch focal point. In the original sketch I'd swear he was trying to dip his junk into the goblet. I realize this is not the case, but the connection can be easily made based on positioning. In the latest version it's not as bad, but I still feel there is no reason for the goblet to be so close to his crotch. Lastly, the white stripes on the barber pole part of the goblet would probably have an orange hue just like the floor tiles.
