    Cliff Hanger

    This is my latest piece.

    I've called it Cliff Hanger, but it doesnt have anything to do with the Stallone movie

    I've had the germ of this idea floating around my brain for about 15 years hehe. Now i've finally done it. its actually a weird kind of relief to get it out of my head.

    so............... here you go, crits welcome.

    done in PS7 in about 12-14 hours (total).



    Cliff Hanger


    I feel like this one is a bit of a leap forward for me (see my previous work @ www.myetchings.co.uk)

    Gorgeous!

    just a few things:

    a) I'd love to see a stronger light on the main characters and FG, right now everything seems a little hazy. example, the FG snow is the exact same colour as the BG snow... whiten it up a bit and it will pull everything forward and add more dimension to the piece.

    b) The BG figures seem a little forced, not even sure if you need them. If you do I'd make them sit a little higher, maybe waist level on the attacking guy... right now they feel way too low and a little unfinished.

    c) The "Conan" figure that's hangin' needs some work on his legs (especially the back one) and his feet. They feel unfinished as compared to the other FG elements.

    d) Not sure what the girls doing but in a Frazetta-esque piece like this... yah gotta have one!

    Really superior work... I love the composition, and the energy. The stone / mountain work is awesome!

    great job!

    Some mighty fine work! The cliffhanger's arm and back are really well done. Do have to agree with Verithin about the background figures. Don't eliminate them, but make them a little more noticeable. And man it must suckfor the girl, being in the snow naked!

    great textures and mood.

    THe dangling figure is really really stiff and his thigh/leg sticking up had the highest and largest amount of contrast. Darken that up a bit and I would also suggest trying different body positions for the character. Everything else has a nice flow, now make this a killer piece and add some life to him as well.

    looks sweet. I love the guy hanging over the edge, that is so kewl. And the girl, wicked, although i bet she's freezing. The only that that was weird for me, was that the expresion on the guys face looks kinda happy or too calm to me. I think he should be snarling a bit more, like is is furious.

    Barbarian affairs man. The husband just came back from a long day at the office only to find another man in his cave.

    Awesome job dude, I really like the atmosphere you created here. The dude that’s hanging right now could use a new position (at least his arm with the dagger) it feels like he pulled it out of somewhere but might as well just have him in a battle ready pose.

    I like the "Conan" figures pose... I really get the sense that he's holding tight to the branch with his right arm and that he's "rigid" in anticipation of the move he's gonna have to make to fend off the attacking guy...

    The hanging guy legs seems to be in a really weird pose, shouldn't they be hanging down a little more?

    The attackers' expression is a bit hard to read; it almost looks to me like he's running to help pull the guy up.

    Mongol General: Conan, what is best in life?

    Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to dangle precariously on a branch with a young Kenny Rogers bearing down on you with an axe.


    I still say the big fella and the woman need to have a poist coital cigarette in their mouths. Classy.

    Nah, you know I love it m'lad. Top marks. I'll still cane your arse on Pro Evo later tho.
