    falling

    I'm not as happy with this one as the previous 2 I've done, but it'll suffice.
    Hope you all like it!

    i think this is really nice.
    given the angle of the light,
    i would like to see a little more cast shadow on his forehead form his hair.

    Good job with his hair and all the cloth. You must have studied how cloth folds. That's something I need to work on.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Jucky: Thanks mate. Keep at it and your colouring will improve loads. I've only been colouring for just over a year now. You'll be sure to see some more lineart soon. Thanks again!

    DSillustration: Cheers buddy. Good spot on the shading, damn you!

    Halis_Aetrous: Folds in clothes are something that I've been trying to improve on as I'd avoided them so much when I was younger. I'm still not great at them, but I'm getting there. Thanks for the comment.

    Looks good, Dave. Well, except for the text on his shirt - unless it's your intention for it to look very rigid, you should shape it more to the hang of the material. I like the off-center composition and the colours are, of course, very pleasing.

    Thanks Matt. Yeah I should've moved the writing on the top slightly. I got a bit fed up with the image to be honest, and just thought 'hell with it, it's done'. I'm hoping everybody has a say like that every so often!

    Hi Dave,

    I see a problem with the left arm, seems flat, you should improve the perspective a little bit... Maybe the arm shadow cast on the body would help.

    I would clean it up a bit - looks messy - some values inconsisten, face needs some line cleaning, etc.
    Also try working B&W - you can add color later after nailing your values.
    Colors are also a bit too saturated and some variation in temperature would make it pop up better.
    Looking forward the update
    Oblio
