    Hey guys, just to give a little update: i have done some studies of light and material and started actually painting the thing

    But my current painting looks like a Terminator Mosquito and it just look so bad that I got the urge to trow everything away and start from scratch. I did three finished sketches and it does not see like those helped me at all. Not sure if it is my lack of knowledge about armor, or about design, or my process as a whole. I think I will just back up and study more about these things.

    Also
    @Discorave that brushwork gesture looks really nice
    @MikeWest those materials look awesome even though they are pretty simple. Your thumbnail could use some more work though.

    I think it all comes down to the overall anatomy of the knight, i would suggest you doing long sketches and checking proportions, and placement of the body features.

    Initial sketch. The horse will just be sketched in simply, I'm going to be concentrating on the knight.

    Vanvanmar: It might be a good idea to take a photo of a friend or yourself standing the same way as your knight as reference for a more natural stance, he's looking a little stiff at the moment. The studies you have done are a good step, but you aren't looking at the photos closely enough. In the bottom most helmet there are shades of brown in the shadow, whilst there are yellow tints in the highlights. It's these touches that give it a more natural look rather than plain grey all the way across. Lastly, google images of a "bascinet" it's a type of French helm with a pointed nose that would be a good staring point for a beaked helm if you are still worried about the mosquito look.

    You should rename the contest into plague doctor knight. So many beak helmets!

    edit: I just realized that the plague doctor mask is part of the prompt - shame on me.

    Thanks Tiggeraz, it's always nice to hear from you. The nurse will take you back to your room now. Also stick around as next weeks challenge will be genre: humour, which could be right up your tiger shaped alley.

    Jaxeller: The lower half of your character lacks a bit of shape to my eye. He has wide shoulders, yet seemingly no waist or hips, just the same width the rest of the way down.

    Progress, crits welcome.

    Update on the rendering, probably done for today. I hope to get it done before the deadline.
    Hope you like it, cheers
