    Monster painting, looking for advice

    Hey guys,

    Been working on this piece during the week at lunch and was hoping for some feed back. I am struggling with integrating the character with the background (something I ALWAYS struggle with).

    It's basically a large creature.. I am going to add small details and the like after I further refine the shadows, lighting and backgrounds.

    Any and all feedback welcome.

    One of the GLARING things I see right now is that the background doesn't seem... well, lit at all. that's giving me the impression the figure is pasted in... there's no real light source to match the figure and background. He's not casting any shadows so he's not grounded, either.

    Hey there!

    I had just roughly sketched it in.. so that may be a lot of the issue. At lunch I am going to try and work on the background a bit more. But yes.. I agree. He pops out a bit too much. Putting in backgrounds is a weakness I'd like to overcome.

    I think you have roughed out the background pretty well and the perspective looks good.

    His upper right arm wouldn't allow for his forearm to be rotated that way. The bicep is turned towards his body and his hand is pointing away. The overall pose off the arm is fine just need to move some anatomy around. The left arm looks like it is broken mid forearm.
