I'm kind of stuck on this one, any advice on how to make it look more finished?
I think some light would be good. I’ve done a paintover. Hopefully my affinity for parties with the exposure and contrast tools won’t be too off-putting. It would definitely be a good idea to get a lighting reference for this. Otherwise, you could end up painting something like this. God-of-your-choice forbid.
personally I think you have a good technique. You could try get more tone variation as stated above but for me the most glaring issue is the anatomy. Something about the posture, particularly the creatures leg furthest from us, is not quite right. Not much is drawing my eye to the focal point, which I assume its the creatures face?
I do like your creature, maybe try use more dynamic lines to add more attention to it?
Just something fairly minor; The brush strokes you have used for the rock and surrounding cave don't give me the impression of rock. It looks like soft material. Perhaps you could address this by painting over it with a hard round brush, and incorporating stronger light and shadows to give more form.
New account for a fresh start.
Thanks for the input and the paintovers! very helpful
this is where I'm at right now:
Looks good, personally id zoom into the face a tad and try and detail that above everything else, so it looks more refined than the rest of the image. Will draw the eyes in a bit more.
