    im so shinny brah

    the main reason im posting this is the skin issue..looks kinda plastic,or like its not even there oO
    I could never manage to make it look realistic..ugh ಠ_ಠ
    I made this piece with no original lineart,just scribbled it on,and jumped right onto values/color
    Ofc tips regarding anything else would be helpful
    Im aware that the anatomy is not quite right,and over exaggerated but hey

    I like how clear your forms are and how much contrast there is, it really defines the musculature well. I also love the textures you used, and the armor design looks really fun to me, it easily looks like concept art for some video game.

    The only crit that jumps out at me is the size of the shoulders, since the musculature is already so exaggerated, it feels like the shoulders should also be more exaggerated. They seem too small in proportion to the rest of his bulging muscles.

    Also, the upper right arm (our right) muscles also feel a little small in comparison to the rest of the body, and the size of the left arm.

    Really nice work so far, would love to see it with the bottom half more defined.

    to get rid of the shiny effect on the skin reduce your range of value. lower the contrast.. You mentioned realistic-- so Ill say this, right now youve got a very stylized rendering of each form- every muscle has the full value range.. for a more realistic approach you need to focus on the larger masses and group your lights and darks accordingly.

    Why not try it on THIS piece. Add a layer and make a go at it.

    He's a stylized metal man (with veins...).
    You rendered his body like metal and it's like we saw only his (sometimes surely exaggerated) muscles, no fat or skin to soften forms here and there. A real muscular man can't look like this.

    It's not realistic but polished in a cool way and the armor is great, at least I like it a lot.
    What gives off those blue and orange lights? It's good when things has a reason to exist...
