    Medieval Warrior

    This is my first attempt at creating a digital painting ( using a mouse and PS CS). I am a noob and used all the tools I shouldn't have, but I couldn't stand to do it any other way with my $5 mouse. Once I pick up a Wacom I will move on to more intelligent ways of painting in PS. Until then though, C&C this thing will ya?

    (Note: the background gradient is a temporary background while I decide what to put there. The rock will stay however.)

    The main thing that sticks out to me is you didn't shade everything as if there were all sorts of different textures on it. The armor is shaded the same as the background which is shaded the same as the spear. Make it more metallic, I believe there may be some metal tutorials on the web, even on this board, you might want to check it out.

    First of all it looks like you are off to a good start. Now on to the crits:you might want to tone down your values; leaving only the (few) highlights white, the left horn is off (it looks like the horns are turned straight to the viewer, and not in line with his face.) the position of his right hand looks abit painful too. Sorry if i didn't make any sense i've slept 4 hours and my brain is still asleep.

    Thanks for all the advice and crits. Anyone have further advice on rendering metal ( any ideas ie: links to tutorials etc...), and on rendering the fur kilt.

    the foreshortened leg seems anatomically incorrect. It could be the hair like material covering the thigh, it also looks like his left foot is his right foot.

    Hard to tell, but it looks like his right hand is either very unnaturally placed on the spear, or his thumb is on the wrong side of his hand.
