    Gatekeeper sketch

    A piece I started work on today, I just figured I'd throw it up here and get some critique before I really start work on it and get lost in it (and overlook something important)

    Gatekeeper

    The image is a bit big, so I can't see it all at once, but I don't spot any obvious problems. As a narrative issue, I want to be looking up at the gatekeeper, like I'm down here, little and intimidated by that bad boy. But that obviously is a much harder illustration job than being at eye level with him.

    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).

    Ah, sorry, I always have resizing issues on CA. I'll see about making the perspective more drastic, thanks.

    yeah, i agree with Stoat, i guess the only real issue is that the viewer seems to be quite tall and high up off the floor, making the scene look a little less impressive than perhaps intended?

    The framing foreground elements matches the doorway arch too closely and flatten out the space. There's little sense of depth.

    I can't tell how far away those doors are, or how large they are. Similarly I can't judge the distance from the door to the keeper, nor the keeper to where I am seeing the scene from. Is the keeper average humanoid height and closer to me? Is the keeper gigantic and closer to the doors? Are the doors immense or average height? My mind keeps jumping between all of these and can't resolve an answer.

    I agree with Chas, right now, the dimensions are a bit crazy. I can't tell how big the room is, because right now it looks really squished and tiny!
