    i believe its the left arm?

    her hand is motioning downwards yet the perspective of the gun is pointing upwards.... great piece though, the composition of the piece really blows
    3yrs to go......

    BRILLIANT!!! The highlites on the pants really set off the whole piece!

    The great thing about pixels is you can't spill them on your floor.

    What is 'The Uninvited'?

    Okay, put both your hands in front of you. Now, put the index finger straight up, your thumb straight to the side, and the rest of yiour fingers closed. Your left hand makes an 'L, while your right hand makes a backwards 'L' (not an L)
    Anyone facing you, their right and left arm will be reversed from this technique.

    The painting is really rad. No crits from me.
    You gotta know what you is doin so you don't get a bad lergy on your knob.

    Very cool! I'm very fond of such contrasted colorschemes on cloth or armour.

    I like the highlight on the pants aswell, reminds me to keep highlights/speculars contrasted when rendering gloss materials and not go into greys and gradiation stuff.

    I would've been tempted:
    ... to do schablonistic fire colored gunflares.
    ... to put a screamin mouth on the face.
    ... to make a more clean photomodel face.

    Probably not good decisions, but I would be tempted
    Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.

    This one is awesome jon. The clothes you put on the woman are awesome. Her pants = awesome awesome. The guy in the background is fantastic as well..as well as the guys at the bottom...ok truth be told everything is great. The only things I would bring up...and I only bring them up for your benefit cause they don't bother me that much...are her arms and her hands as well. The form of both hands are not as clear as the rest of her. This doesn't bother me so much although her right arm fist holding the gun is bigger and draws more attention and her left fist/gun is a little hard to read at first. These are things honestly that wouldn't bother me in the least if you changed them or not...and I know you already are aware of them.

    Seriously though...overall this pic kicks total butt. The composition and the color palette and everything is fantastic. You are getting better man...really..I even see improvement over the earlier ones on your website. Keep it up bro.

    wow

    first of I love this piece, I love the pallete the rendering and mood are brillient. Buuuuuuuut, oh god I know this is going to hurt -me- but something seems a bit off on the composition. Its just one persons opinion-who by the way is years away from your skill level- but it seems a little light one the top of the painting. I would love to hear your thoughts on this if you have the time. Thanks for posting.

    this is a nice piece. love the scale, comp.
    nothing about the anatomy or perspective bothers me personally

    my 2 cents--


    the shape that is created by her left leg and where it meets the dudes head (on the right)is a little wierd for me. if you look at it abstractly it almost looks like that leg is coming out of teh head--but maybe by lining up the edges like that you were trying to create a shape...?

    the red x's are a little flat compared to the rest of teh rendered parts of the bottom figures

    these are small nitpicky things that are prob just personal preference--keep up the great work!!!---ty
