    Evil Throne Room

    Hey guys! Haven't posted anything in awhile but I was looking for some feedback on a sketch I've done. I have a problem with jumping right into painting before I have a strong foundation so if there's anything that might improve it, feel free to let me know! Thanks!

    Strong lighting and good rendering.

    Make sure to render the left and right background bits separately so they don't look like cut and past. Other'n that...looks interesting!

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Or cut and paste, even.

    Thanks Stoat! Got an update. I think (or hope) I have the main lighting down, aside from casting shadows which I still plan to put in. Going through now and adding finer detail.

    I'm not trolling here but compositionally you've kinda made his nuts the focal point...

    I suggest keeping contrast/focus on the side structures (namely, the faces spewing water) very low, because when we look over there, our eyes flow right off the canvas along with the water.

    Thanks for the advice wooblood, I tone downed the stone sides and added more focus to the center...I THINK I've got my values down and I'm starting to move on to color...
