    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
