Now crit the shit out of me!
An update, I reshaped the arms and scaled the head a bit down.
so my update for today, story behind this guy will be:
He uses his eternal rage to end the bloodlines of rivalling tribes and kingdoms by fighting his way through dozens or hundreds of palace-guards to slay down the children of the tribeleader or king. He then collects the skulls of the slain children to remind everbody what he is capable of.

i am so glad i have four days too finish!!!
Lord Trilobite - Dude, don't take this the wrong way, but I really love your image for all the wrong reasons. It looks like a scene from the muppets. I know you are trying to make it look like the viking is slaying the dragon but to me it looks like he is playing the dragon like a massive drum. They are the equivalent of norse punk music, both just shouting and banging the drum. Its ACE!
- Trying to be constructive, I would suggest making the dragons back appear to have sustained damage because at the moment the integrity of its structure appears to be healthy. For me this effects how the viewer reads the image, it currently looks like the dragon should be fighting off the viking in its current predicament not lying down taking it. I like the piece, and look forward to seeing it finished, not sure if Ive been a bit dooshy with my crit but welcome to CA. Keep Posting.
Parsakoira - Looks lovely dude, the colours are really starting to come alive. The immediate thing that springs to mind tho is that your viking is an angry midget (rhymically slashing down 'big' people). Im not sure if the foreshortening works, the guy he is slashing appears to have legs that extend behind the viking charater and yet are bigger than his body? I think your previous wips showed him slashing and hacking away at multiple people which helped give his figure and gesture more context. Looks cool dude, I'm in a bit of a silly mood so sorry if this seems insincere.
emerging - Great rendering but Im in a really stoopid mood, yknow the kind thats dangerous when combined with the internet, well. It kinda looks like a rape scene. You have captured the moment when a bear loves a viking perfectly. Just at the moment of climax the vikings expression of surprised horror tells all. The worst thing is he looks like the guy from Orange County Choppers, who I've always thought looks like a big gay bear.
Here is my Sketchbook. Please have a look if you have time. Thanks.
Ok, just a quick update, before I'll do some other project.

I am totally new to CHoW its my first time around here so i do have a few questions that are not directly CHoW related but they belong to it.
My problem is to save pictures in the right resolution, they allways seem to be to big (meaning that they load slowly), or - if i make them smaller - they become blurry ( even if they are pretty normal sharp looking on my PC)
So the questions are:
1. wich resolution do your pictures have? (for instance 800x1200 pixel ?)?
2. how many pixel per inch?
3. wich file format ?
i want that my pictures come out as they really are, so please help me and my apologies for using this thread
thanks in advance

Great work everyone.
Fix my sketch for a more "BERSERK" version.
