    Hiya

    Thanks for the detailed analysis BMunchausen! You have an excellent eye.

    I knew there were problems with the things that you mentioned, and I already saw the problem with the helmet....but the rest I only noticed when you pointed it out.

    Well it's a work in progress so its not to late to change any of these things and make them better, which I will do

    Thanks for the encouragement I'll get to work!

    New left hand

    Hiya,

    I didn't think his left hand was very well painted, so I decided to repainted it and change the angle a little bit, and I think it looks a lot better now, hopefully much more like he's really holding something that has some weight to it!

    Sweet piece dude! The hand holding the axe is very well done - and a lot of other stuff btw His eyes looks a bit sad, maybe even scared now. I might like the version with no eyes and the dark shadow most. Makes him look more dangerous. Cool stuff - keep it up!

    I'm delighted to see that you are continuing to rethink the piece, I'm curious what program you paint with?

    Hi Kodi,

    Always rethinking it...!

    And this is 100% Painter 9, which I think is great for doing this kind of a Painting. I am using the Artists oils and Charcoal.

    Thanks for your feedback guys, and I might end up with those eyes back in shadow yet fellah, we'll see.

    SweeT! Nice work on the detailing of the armor and axe, also on those hands. Real fleshy. Hmmm, personally I prefer the version without the eyes. Something seems a little off with his eyes now. I think the problem may be in the actual placement of the right eye (my right, the darker lit one). It seems to follow a straight line with the other eye, which shouldn't be because its supposed to be resting on a cylindrical surface. It also seems to be too bright, at least the white of the eye are, to be under the shadow of his helmet.

    ALso maybe you can some finer shadow across his beard where the axe would naturally block the light. Right now the beard seems to be the brightest part of the picture.

    Good stuff. Looking forward to the finished version.

    update

    Hi all,

    Almost done with this, changed a lot really. Completely repainted certain parts, but I still need to work on the lower half of the image, the legs and the ground. Apart from that it's almost done. Any suggestions or feedback would be helpfull


    Thanks

    This certainly came a long way from the first post! The hand holding the ax handle is especially well done. But you do realise the handle is piercing his neck just under his jaw and exiting out of the back of his skull?

    I know its a WIP, but the level of realism in the face and hands are so high, everything else is looking cartoony. The way the helmet and axe are rendered are really bothering me. From the looks of it, you probably shot a photo ref, but maybe you are relying too much on the reference. I like how you handled the snow. The peice has come a long way. Keep up the good work.

    This stuff looks REALLY cool overall, but something don't look quite right with his right arm. His right hand looks a tad too big compared to the apparent size of his arm.

    Of course I've never seen what a dude's right arm will look like when wearing a big fur coat.

    The 3 golden highlights on the blade, and the one on the pick point are too bright, and look like they are thisclose to being dreaded Lens Flares....ack!
