trying to depict a scene of a bleeding warrior about to fall prey to black spectres. so far only the warrior is near completion. I like the way his face looks, but his body (+ armor plating) looks very awkward b/c of the color/lightning. Any help would be appreciated.
Even it has some expresivity, I think you should work more on the thumbnails and then line art.
I think this is the order of importance when doing most of the artwork types>
Legibility of narrative content
Think you may have jumped the gun on trying to finish up your main character before you had decided on the lighting for your scene. The fallen warrior is lit from above off to the left, was that how you intended to light the composition? Can not tell for the green background.
So forget about the warrior for now, and concentrate on developing your lighting scheme for the picture. Is that a forrest, green fog... Decide and work it up further, figuring out how you wish to light the scene will be nessisary in determining how the warrior should be lit.
As to your warrior. Check the left leg, which appears short and stumpy as currently drawn. Also if you intend to have your warrior coughing out blood, that would tend to indicate heavy internal damage to the chest and stomach region. Your armor should show that if caused by weapons. If it has to deal with say a magical attack by your shadow creatures work out how you can get that idea across in your picture.
hrm...thanks for all the replies, I think I jumped the gun by simply starting a completely imaginary piece with no reference at all. I do frequent practice from real life / photos, but every once in a while I try a imaginary piece to see if my skills have improved at all. Guess I am not there yet , need more practice
