    I like the concept, but I noticed a few things that need attention.

    1. The lazers look like stray perspective lines. They need more of a glow to them , if that is what they are supposed to be.
    2. The lazer from the floor level seems to come from no where. If it comes from the foreground, then it would have a different angle and be a little larger.
    3. The anatomy seems stiff and needs more of a range of shadows, especially around the front shoulder area.
    4. The perspective on the background is off on the pertrusion on the far, left side. The angle should be more straight on and less of the left side of it shown.
    5. Check your shadowing from the character onto the surroundings. I think you would have more distinct shadows cast from the ball of light in his hands onto the floor, background, etc.

    I think that you have a good start, but need to address some things to make it a better piece.

    Good luck.

    There are some really cool things going on here, but the figure's position and anatomy are detracting from it a bit. From the position of his left leg, he appears to be falling over (away from us). And his right thigh seems obsenely short.

    I'd also have to say you have some perspective shortfalls. For one, you're using a very low camera angle, but only supporting it with 1-point perspective in a 2-point perspective composition. I can't find any lines which lead away and to our left that are not parallel. This makes the image seems very odd. In addition, very little on the figure (above the waist) indicates the low camera angle.

    I'm hoping someone else can analyze the composition, because I'm not sure why it's bugging me. Actually, you might get a lot better feedback in the Critique Center. There are a lot of neat lighting effects, but with so many perspective and anatomy irregularities, it just isn't working very well.

    Your detail and color are very nice. It seems as if you skipped the basics in your sketching when it came to anatomy though. The figure shows no potential or life.

    Nice image, but I'm a bit confused by one thing about it in particular. What the heck is he getting angry at? I see smoke, red light and those lasery bits, but I can't figure out what he's supposed to be attacking there, if anything. It'd be more interesting if we had some indication of it.

    Lightning looks really good.

    The only thing that's bothering me is that i cant see where the laserbeams
    are coming from.

    Cheers R3M

    Kind of looks like he's standing on carpet, instead of metal, which sort of conflicts with the metal walls. Unless, or course, you meant it to be carpet? Great colors and lighting, though. Lightning looks really cool too.
