here we go
here we go
This is pretty darn good. I know you didn't post this looking for fan-boys, however, so I'll hold my raves short and go straight to the meat.
The watercolor-looking background doesn't jibe that well with the acrylic-looking character. It disconnects the two.
The left hand is in an odd position, emotionally (meaning I don't know what it's doing), and the two fingers are really small.
The bags under his eyes are too dark. They take away from the eyes. He can still look as tired with a little more subtlety.
The opening in his colar is asymmetrical, most likely on purpose, but the angle makes it look like it was accidental. If more of it covered his face, it would look more natural, or even if part of it was at a different angle.
The eyebrows don't need to be outlined. I think I'm the only one with outlines on his eyebrows. I get funny looks.
The hair is the only element that gives the piece any motion, but since it isn't backed up by anything else (even something very subtle), we're not sure if it's windy, he uses industrial strength mousse, or stuck his finger in a light socket (the lightning is pushing me toward number 3).
The head is just a little too small (accentuated by the very small chin) for even a character of heroic proportions.
The lightning going up and down the left side does nothing for the compostion.
I really like your basic composition and color balance. The cool of most of the piece is balanced fairly well with the warmth from the skin and hair and even a little bit of the background.
nice work, overall.
thk for your comments, i aperciate a lot
This is really great but are you ever gonna show the rest of him?
I agree with most of the comments, but still think it's a very good picture. The only thing wrong I can see straight away is his left hand and arm. It is just positioned incorrectly. However, it still looks good.
My favourite parts in this image are his armour, and the electricity effects.
What's the history of this character? Does he have a story? A meaning? Are you designing him for something in particular, or is it something you just made up for your own pleasure?
A better description, rather than just 'here we go' would be nice!
