    I think it would look great with either snowfield in the BG or just a grass plain. Draw the plain first, and then destroy it. Add blood stains to the snow or charred grass, then drawi n your slain daemons and hwatever else. I like hte figure so far and look forward to seeing it done.

    Thanks alot. I'm going more towards a war torn lanscape. The setting is set when the world was young and Heaven and Hell are battling on earth. I updated the initial picture by the way with the clouds that i currently have there.

    Humm...Kesimire.

    Generally speaking the sky is lighter than anythin set against it so get your light/dark contrast right. Bang in a flat line about the level of the mid thigh. graduate the top. lightest at the bottom darkest at the top. U could paint in some clouds, generally theyre roundish and darker than the bakground.
    For the plain find a regular feature. A hill or a post or a figure, whatever and repeat it tastefully possibly overlapping and getting smaller as they get further away. 'corse theres bound to be someone to paint it out for you.

    PS did you see Steve dillonsAW for Preacher from vertigo.? There's a war in heven and all the angels are implaed. There's a beautiful scene of the battlefield with these impaled angels used as the repeated feature.

    What happend to my field of impaled angels then??? ;P

    I think a pretty dark landscape would be nice and with the contrast of a ray of light hitting the battlefield, i see a set of very dramatic clouds, dark and with at light spot, like a hole where the light orgins, i think that could be cool =)

    Some advice

    Hey Kresimir,


    You stoped by and looked at one of my posts today, the least I can do is return the favor. The angel is coming along nicely. The detail in the armor is my favorite. The shading in the ribs and chest and the little cracks are excellent touches.

    As for your horizon line, the rule I always learned is that the horizon is always at the eye level of the viewer. No matter where we go the horizon appears at eye level. So if we are high iin the sky, the horizon is high, thus all objects on the ground have a downward perspective. If we are low to the ground, so is the horizon, and all objects go up above it. So the trick is in deciding where our eye level is with this character, where are we in reference to him.

    I think thigh level is too low for a horizon, I would think it should be somewhere between his wrist and elbow from looking at this. The clouds, being above the horizon, have the right perspective.

    As for the background, the field of battle sounds excellent, but you don't want to make it too flat... some prominant feature should be there as a point of reference. I am almost thinking like some giant rock formation rising out the the field far in the distance. (The best comparison I can make is to that rock shelf at the beginning of The Lion King.) Something with bodies strewn over it, maybe even a building structure. It can cast a dark shadow under it's overhang and darken some of the field. Just a flat series of bodies might not give you the sense of depth that one or two large distance objects added into the mix might do.

    Just some tips, I can wait to see it further along.

    Eric

    like the clouds

    The clouds are coming along nicely. I think the small area in the upper right of the picture works the best. Those clouds seem to have a transparency that works great. The under side has a lot of form to it... and the yellow-ish light seems to almost be coming THROUGH the clouds, which adds to the sense of realism.

    As a critique, I am worried that the shape of the wings might merge a bit with the clouds now. They are very "whispy" wings in appearance at their current state. Being so close to the viewer I think they need a really defined look to make him look like he is far in front of the clouds. (I know you are still working on the figure so this is a little premature, just something to keep in mind.)

    Great work...

    -Eric

    I'think the dead body is making 2 much of the picture now.
    I would put it a little to the background, make it a smaller. And blur it a little, it's 2 hard now. You should keep the angel the real main character 2 fist look at, and then 2 the background (if you know what i mean)
    But this is only my opinion

    Keep it up!

    aye i agree, the dead body on the right is drawing too much attention. either put it in the background or move it off to the side so its only just in the picture and then blur it like the rest me thinks.

    Can you take that back?
    Ok it's more work, but he will look more powerfull

    The blood on his body is also great.

    Keep it up!

    lol at first i thought those were palmtrees in the background. Then when i saw the body pinned into the spear i was like.......oh...those arent palmtrees. lol anyway its looking better with each progression, I really like the way you set up the clouds in the background. Keep up the good work

    Not much more I think I can add to the work so far, very strong.

    I hate to do this, but your wings look like bags covered in feathers, with all the realism for the rest of the picture, the wings lack a solid feeling of realness for me.

    I think it would be cool to make the wings longer and have them curve a bit. I dont know, try it out and see how it works.

    Yes I know they look like crap now, It's just an early stage thats all. Thanks for the wings reference too I'm sure it will help me alot.

    And jester, yeah I was going to give em a more curved feel. As for making them bigger I would like too but I don't want to take up too much of the image. I don't know I'll play around with the idea and see how it goes.

    Expect to see drastic changes today, I'm expecting to get the 80 percent of this done today. All images should be in place minus minor the details.

    Thanks for your input guys, and I'm glad that you like it. I can't wait to post this in the finsished section.

    i think when you move that body on the right, you should place it on the left side because its so empty over there.

    its looking good, I have to say the changes to the wings make it look a lot better in my eyes.

    im liking the overall pose very much so and the texture on the blade and armour is coming on very nicely.

    The sword stands out a bit in my eyes however. the actual thing its self looks great but the way its held confuses me a little. I must admit after taking a look at it i went and grabbed my katana off the shelf lol.... somewhat if a different much lighter blade however the way it slumped over the shoulder just didn't feel right to me..... it felt much too..... posed... if you know what i meen ? it looks to me like hes ready to keep fighting.... yet his grip on the blade isn't as firm as it should be ? if he was going to be holding it so lightly i think that his hand would be further down the handle of the blade. Also as its a two handed (greatsword ?) style I feel that the actual handle its self would possibly be slightly longer to incorporate his large hands.

    Just my two cents.

    Its looking really great so far, though you should keep the warrior the main focus...the dead body drags your attention there...

    I embrace my desire to feel the rhythm, to feel connected, enough to step aside and, weep like a widow, to feel inspired, to fathom the power, to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain, to swing on the spiral, to swing on the spiral of our divinity and still be a human...
