    I've try a different angle for my background. Sadly, I won't be able to explore a lot of thing for this character if I want to finish it for the 20th because I'm going to school while I'm doing this, but I love to get critics as you did @Havok Reed. Thank you very much! I'll try to get a tutorial to know how to do hair well. But for now, here's what I'm going with:

    Just finished a full day of rendering.
    I feel I lost a lot of life in this compared to my sketch, but I'll keep at it and work on the wings, staff & background tomorrow.

    Havok Reed, thanks! I just sat so long with it that I got feeling it's time to show something...))
    Unfortunately I will be far from PC for a day, so I tried now to start thinking about his design.
    Eh, i'm myself amazed how it looks like almost nothing changed but it took from me about an hour or even more to do these small changes.

    I want to make my colors clearer. Add some atmosphere of golden glowing and restless sky here and calm skies beyond golden gates. (there will be stairs there)


    little upd
    Desaturated it and have feeling that I need to add some contrast)

    Good work Guys.
    When I was drawing this char, I thought this time no one will be able to beat me up.
    But seeing all of those beautiful thoughts, I am lost.
    But anyway, will complete this and try to get better

    Absolutely awesome work you presented. I'm quite jelous of the amount of skill and dedication you can put into your paintings. I'm kind of a beginner at this.

    Since my last post was kind of lost, I guess, I'll try it one more time:


    (draft)

    (actual standpoint)

    " Tangga Surga", the stairway to heaven, essentially cannot be seen by human/mortal. But there are times when it becomes visible. At these sacred times, protection to the gate is needed to avoid mortals enter the gate. This important job belong to "Gagah Kappoasa", the Guardian of the Sairway to Heaven. He has human size, to easy mobilize when preventing mortals enter the gate. But when needed, He may call his alter as weapon: "Gagah Rakkoasa". This giant spirit is controlled by Gagah Kappoasa. Mimicking it's master, and equipped with Gods Super Power. There is definitely no mortals will pass the gate when this Powerful Guardian on duty.

    Loengrin – Lovely work and design, that rendering is a dream! I think you could brighten up the background, might make her stand out even more.

    pangketepang - I like your explaination, really original and has given you a cool design.

    Vatteh – I think when you add some detail to the wings that will help. I thing it’s a great piece, but maybe adjust the position of the weapon tip and wing, it reads a bit awkward with the flow of the composition.

    Renart – Interesting concept I hope you get time to finish it. Try cropping some of the background / altering the composition to focus on the character. I think there is too much empty background space. The guardian is really detailed and well done, I like the little dude on the staff.

    Mhugo – They all work for me man! I like the one with the sword best, reminds me of some badass boss from dark souls, but third guardian looks hardest.

    Sorry for not giving feedback on anyone else's stuff, I need to get lots done if I am gonna finish this one.

    sweet stuff going on here, really looking forward to see all the finals.

    Dayle, thank you, i really liked the one with the sword too, but at the end i decided to go with something more bulky and massive

    Some process on mine, hope i'll have the time to finish it later on.

    i think this time my pic is just road to nowhere, so i tried to redraw roughly it from B&W. in my opinion it's a little bit better cause it has some contrast but still I like nothing in it. This time silhouettes was the best part of a process)
    Well, it's all part of learning!)

    When I find myself disliking a piece I'm working on, I usually scrap it and start new. I find it important to know when to start over, otherwise you will waste your own time. Which also brings up a very important step in a design process; thumbnails, scribbles, very rough ideas to get your thoughts down on paper so you can skip the phase of going in a direction you dont like.

    On a side note, What is that brush you were using for the BG?
