    hey you did a nice job on this, youve created a nice mood with your picture, some things i suggest are lighten up the area below the wolf because its becoming so dark the details are getting lost, i would lighten the background for atmospheric perspective to pop the character more, and maybe darken the blood, good luck, its looking good

    I wouldn;t have known it was a werewolf if you hadn't have told us. Is he riding piggy-back? Is there a saddle? The mood is good but mikorion is right about it being too dark to see details

    bruticus,

    Seems as if you have a dark-on-dark problem. Nothing is 'reading' very well.
    Mood is one thing, but your illustration makes me suddenly think that i've gone legally blind. That, or there's an eclipse somewhere.

    Since your light source comes from the smoke in the background, why don't you take that light tone, then use your faded (opaque to solid to opaque) brush in Photoshop, set your opacity to 40%, and then start working in some rim-lighting on the characters in the foreground. But just enough so the characters and their details can now be 'read' properly.

    Remember that light lays over, and (sometimes, or to a degree) wraps around a figure or object. Lots of painters start painting darkly, then they 'pull' their figures out of the dark forms with hilights.

    I'm betting that you'll surprise yourself, when you add these hilights to your figures.

    Good luck!
