nice stuff man, acrylics? I think you will improve by watching your values and their transitions. it will push your contrast and give you alot more depth to the paintings. also, start tweaking with atmospheric perspective.

@Vcoleman:thank you for replying to my requests,i really appreciate your suggestions for my work.it's important for me to listen to other ways that i can work on to improve my techniques .the technique that i used in these works are both combined acrylics and oils.despite that fact,i'm working with these materials for almost four years,so i'm still improving my skills and still try learning how to use better those stuff.you know,contrast,lights and most of all the atmosphere i want to create in my work.
thanks again for your advice.

Really cool images & interesting ideas :-)
I agree with the above-above ... they are all very intense scences :-)
I think the colourse need to be stronger .. more contrast .. or maybe thats just due to scaning/photographing them .. just a quick auto-levels under Photoshop ... will prop do .. .
Really good paintings :-)

@Poohgee:hello there!thank you for posting your opinion here.well,first of all,its not the scanner responsible for the result of the images,-its meits true that im working very hard to improve my contrast and color techniques.and the bad thing is that i'm not used to photoshop yet,despite the fact that i took lessons on it while being in my art school.well,im still working on it and trying for the best as it is a matter of time i believe for someone to detect his <wick>points and improve them.
thanks again! really apreciate your opinion

Cool images, very dynamic. I agree with the above crit. If the problem isn't your scanner, mabey try widening your palette, and instead of using primarily tinting and shading for shadows and highlights add contrasting colours to push it a bit more. I'd love to see more in the future.

Love your work.
Second pic though, are both arms meant to be spread out?
If no, allright... If yes, the arm farthest from the viewer looks more like it is sticking forward, rather than be spread like the closest arm. This is because the cloth on the back of the arm stretches further than the cloth at our side of the arm. ...
But otherwise, I like the pieces. I'd add more pure black to give some characters a little push to the foreground.

@zergaloth:hi there and thank you for posting in my thread man!well,as for the hands ,they were meant to be as they look in the painting,as you may notice even the head is bigger compare to the rest of the body-so i wanted all the figure to be that way:weird body even the way his hands are spreading over the wooden cross_something stuff.so i wanted this result to be somehow confusing and thats why i didnt give sush realism in the way the scarecrow looks.second,another problem i noticed few hours ago is that when converting my images from bmp to jpeg and changing the resolution the colours doesnt look that good now compare to the original stuff-and thats the reason my images looking some blur or not enough powerfull in the color-contrast section.ill try to work next works with photoshop to adjust the levels.
i saw your work and i liked it,liked the clear line although i think that you maybe should concentrate a little more in the anatomy section.especially liked the viking stuff image and the black white under it.well ,see you again man!thank you for your advice.
