OK, here's my latest, Um...not exactly a lot to say about it really! Except he's one of many characters who've been knocking around in my head since high school, and who I can now finally do justice to! I may not be a god of art, but I'm certainly better than I was 15 years ago.
I promised myself I wouldn't go overboard on the green power since he's really just knocking stuff out randomly without looking, in preparation for a big attack. And then I went overboard anyway. But still...
So tell me what's wrong with it and I'll fix what I can!
The title is from an amazing 80s Japanese band called PSY•S, whose guitarist then went on to make Parappa the Rapper (the game). His lightning does have a minty feel to it...

Is there any chance you can make the size smaller so I, and others, can see the whole image without scrolling? Thanks.

Cool design on the armor, nice character! and overall cool image .
One thing though, his shoulder pad, as cool as it is, is not really touching his shoulder, maybe moving it a little further into the arm whould help, but you could aslo add yet another armor plate inside the shoulder pad , unless of cource, is suppose to be some kind of floating armor.
And i would double check the perspective in his right foot.
I must say, this is a nice brake from those strong eye lashes you usssualy make , this is your best character yet.

Like those light(n)ing effects, going through the bugs and all. The pic as a whole is extremely busy. It took a while before I could really see what was going on and basically it's just a guy standing there. I think, if you just made the background a tad darker the figure would pop out more.

oh my god Simon Whoever eat your heart out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This just explodes to your face ! I have inspected this image and I think that the thing that makes it look so sweet is the fact that there is no black lines almost at all !!! I think you should make a f--ng tutorial about the way you did this !!!!!!
look I dont know why I love you I just do

Awesome, man Definitly one of your greatest pics!
Someone here brought up the eyelashes. About them; I think most people will be comfortable with the male characters having less lashy eyes. I'm not trying to dictate which way you should take your style, I'm just saying that there aren't many that find them pleasing.
(in this piece the eyelashes are more or less non-existant because the green light covers them... and I think it looks good)

Very nice, but it's pretty difficult to see whats going on.

Its attractively rendered, but looks overworked, and with everey part of the page filled with dazzling colour and detail its losing impact. Also line-widths, colour palettes and shadow darks are inconsistent accross the page. Perhaps try toning down detail to focal areas to make it easier to understand.
why cant the future be beautiful babe

oh my, its so busy .. I can't rest my eye on anything, it is very uncomfartable to look at. you need to have points to rest your eye at when your looking at something

Very detailed piece of work... dun think it's overworked... you still handle those "depth" pretty well....great job..
