Hey gang... C&C welcome on this one, I hope you guys like it! Ever since I found this place, I have been inspired to push my stuff way more than usual! If I could do this over again I would probably put more perspective into it, but since I am new to painting pics entirely in PS7... I was more so working with colors, lighting and technique...
*updated* with some of theo's suggestions... still haven't figured out what I should do with the crotch...

I'm afraid you'll have to so work a lot more on those matters.Originally Posted by Curlupanddie
the creature looks like it is falling
thanks Zergaloth, I guess... Maybe you could tell me what to change about it instead of just telling me it's not up to par.
mnmcandiez... does the cape help or hinder his falling you think? I had a bit of a debate about that...
What's it? Female or Male? It's just strange some creature wearing a thong.
I recommend setting up a more defined lightsource. Push the values. And dont be afraid of casting some harder shadows, the piece is a bit muddy as is and the blurred shadows dont exactly work against that problem. (Also, for a dude whos -according to the title- supposed to casts shadows, hes awfully lame at it?)
Im afraid the thong is definately hurting this piece too.
just some hints, dont take em too hard since im no superpro either. Especially not when it comes to character design.
Thanks theo! I actually really appreciate it! I totally see what your saying BTW.. and as far as a title goes.. your right!! I originally didn't think the thong was that big of a deal.. but a lot of people have gotten hung up on it, so i guess it should vacate since its getting so much of the wrong attention! stay tuned for an updated version

If you tilted the image like 10 degrees clockwise he would look more steady.
If there were more indicators that wind is existing in that piece, like say a better background, that cape would look ok. Now it mostly just looks like someone is tugging at it from the left bottom corner.
About the crotch; you could push the armor design more. Make it cover the pelvis area. That porno look just has to go, it's disturbing
The head is funny. It reminds me of Earthworm Jim and Illidan from the warcraft series.
Yeah, I totally see what your saying... I wanted his pose to be gestural, but not violating the laws of physics! Everyone was against the thong... I should have known better! reworked the colors too... and gave the cape a reason to be blowing behind him... Thanks so much for all the input guys... you can only look at something so much before you just start telling yourself it works!
a lot better. I'm not against a thong or anything. If this creature was a female, it would be ok.
Here is overpainting just for fun
look I dont know why I love you I just do
personally I'm more sturck by the blank features and lack characturistics. a male torso and a female pelvis is..I suppose ..
plausable, if thats what you intended..
Reminds me of Markos fantastic and creepy drawings of Skeletor, where he looks like a proper perverted tranny psycho.
why cant the future be beautiful babe
