    Samus

    Hey all,

    So I've been working on this one for a while, and was hoping to get some crits. It's a personal piece that I'm considering printing as a poster for my dorm room when finished. I'm mostly interested in what people think of the background, composition and color, though feel free to speak your mind. Note that there's still a lot of polishing - especially the figure - that I'm working on.

    Thanks!

    you could add a little to the feminine form, like making the legs a little longer, or, add more volume to the hip area

    her left leg seems too thin

    i wouldnt make the cannon arm straight, let it bend a little to the right

    great rendering on the armor!

    hope you'll post the further steps!

    How about using a complimentory colour for the background? That will make Samus pop out and make the image less monotonous. I'm thinking some dark, blueish hues to contrast with the orange. You can then also introduce some blue in the shadows.

    There's really not much to say about the composition. Yep, it's a cross composition. Background could use a few more interesting shapes. It's a bit empty and repetitious atm.

    i can definitly see a pro work in here, it already looks like a pro level, also about the BK it seems hard to determine a good BK here, i would just add the galaxy perspective, huge planets etc xD

    wow, this is a tremendous start. the drawing and the painting of Samus looks pro.

    All I'd have to crit is the background. Looks flat, lacks depth, could be more imagantive and wider, color scheme is too monochromatic.

    Hey! I like. The only thing that comes to mind is that maybe she's slightly off center. Especially since she's looking to the right you'd expect a bit more space in that direction.

    Thanks for the feedback so far!

    I tried to take in most of the critiques: bent the gun arm, added some green to the skylight, some very slight tweaks with the left leg and hip area, and chugged away at the bg. I'll experiment with shifting her a bit to the left in the next update, as I just saw tobbA's critique.

    Hopefully this is a step forward. Still a lot of polishing to go, but I'm trying to get everything right beforehand. Thanks again for the input
