    I am not any where near your level to give you crit, just saw the image and wanted to have a nosey
    Looks incredible though dude! Have you just come up with that armour yourself?
    mind me asking how much and what kind of reference you need for a piece like this?

    Wow looking good! Just a few things: handle of hammer is not going into the center of the hammer head. Horse anatomy is off. And I'm not crazy about Ugly Troll Guy having his nose going right into the shape of the armour.

    @stephen, thanks man! armor, i repeated the armor alot , cause of my laziness in skipping the detailed sketch process, i gather refs from real armors pictures and alot of other pro artists works that has armors, i put em stacked side by side usually, and just start roughing it in my work. i would have less reference if the subject is something ive drawn alot before. hope that helps

    @devilry, thank you!, yeah alot notices the horse, gonna tackle that anatomy oTL, handle hammer, and the troll guy XD , noted. thanks alot!!

    This thread is a good example of the importance of a solid focal point. Thanks for posting this. Even though you are not finished, because the focal point is so well done, it already looks wonderful!

    This looks really cool!.. but I feel like that horse is waaaaaay too big....
    the head alone is like the size of the rider's body..

    Hey Saint,

    Nice rendering and overall the eye moves around nice! Couple things I notice though, take it as you will:

    The horse doesn't appear to have any "chin" to speak of, like the head is put on a block of muscle.

    The rider's position in space matches the first horse front better than this one.

    The action might be better if the hammer looked to be dropping rather than still rising.

    These are just simple things I saw, but I like the piece. Your own ability far outstrips mine, so I implore you to keep it up and don't settle on this piece quite yet!

    @darnis, not sure about it being too big

    Though I noticed a couple of things about it that struck me as wrong. There is a problem with the head's foreshortening and the placement of the right leg (our left). You said this was the final, but just in case you're still open to critique, here's my humble paintover, done with the help of some reference photos.

    THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID

    Anywaayy... the horse can be a giant horse for all I know, but the anatomy is off. The horse is facing one way, the rider another. Imagine doing a 3d-version of the horse and try and place a 3d-version of the rider on it. Not doable. Also there are other problems, for example in the original the neck is way too thick.

    A 2nd sketch, this time starting from the rider's pelvis and legs, rather than the horse's body.

    It's a really good piece w excellent lightning effects and armour and stuff, so it's a shame a faulty horse is bringing it down a couple of notches.
