    *UPDATED Demonic one with axe

    ***Look further down for updated image

    Hi you guys.

    This is a early wip. Some 4 hours of work.
    What im insecure in is that if its to dark?... To flat?.. i have a samtron 19 monitor set at contrast 99 and brightness to 55. SO all details are shown to me. How about you guys.. Cant se squat?

    So whats left... legs, background and foreground, the axe and some clothing issues......

    I cant se shit!.=)
    But then my monitor is gay.

    Looks like you got something nice going there.
    Maybe it needs some more contrast
    and prehapps a bit more of an "ogre looking"
    expression on his face. Whatever that means.=D

    HAHAHAHA, na its to dark i think. Yup more contrast. I will work in some more backlight and perhaps darken the front abit more.
    About the face. hm perhaps its wrong to give this a ogre title. Because I think its more a demonic thingy with axe..... So ill skip the ogre title so people dont get caught up on that.

    THX for the comment mate...!
    Oh nice oh nice oh nice! :chug:

    Hi, I´ve got a calibrated Barco-Monitor and the picture is definitely too dark. Looks good but I think you´ve got to put some light into it.Seems to me hat there´s a good one coming

    i turned off all the lights in the room and put my face really close to the monitor and that helped, but for the most part i think the paining is mostly midtones, and dark midtones at that (unless of course, its a dusk-night scene). if it is late mostly-moonlit dusk sort of scene, then i think you nailed it perfectly. if not, then definately bump up the contrast between the lights and darks, it's really muddy right now

    cool character though, i love the antlers

    Fipse - gah gotto get me one of those.

    Pavlovich - Thx. His right antler is a bit off ill move that up abit in the next version. AND yes it should be a dusk sort of lighting HOWEVER it is way to darkas you guys mention so ill add some backlight first and se what that does.

    Perhaps if all is well ill do a update today.

    Update...
    Fixed and added some lighting. Also changed som values. Some more detailing is needed on the background as well as on the legs.

    Lightbulb

    i have a very bright monitor, i like to see every dark value as well as the light, i could see both images perfectly fine, but again, i have a very bright monitor. i have the same problem with the calobrated monitor issue.

    2 cents:
    a. the left leg. there are three sections to its leg.
    -the thigh and hip area:
    sense i feel the right legs form is nice i would use it as reference for the other. the thigh needs more muscle mass to match the right thigh and balance the beast.
    -the middle section of the leg:
    tough to say, but using his feet plane and where his left hoof is placed (off to his left side, and slightly forward) i would say his leg would have to be extended slightly. as you have the middle section of the leg drawn in perspective now, is pointing away and upward from the upper knee to the lower leg joint. (not extended, but clentched together like the right leg.) i think you would have to draw the mid section angled the opposite, downward.
    -lower leg and hoof:
    the length is longer than the right, it is not the same proportionately.
    it is a difficult foreshortened angle and leg design.
    b. as you had mentioned, detail in the backround would creat more depth in the image. more dynamic, opposed to ambiet, lighting would add better depth. you are a very talented painter, do not be afraid to add dynamic lighting. dynamic lighting does not have to be harsh.
    c. atmospherics may also help with depth of feild, adding dust at his feet. using a feild of focus may help as well.

    Hey man thx for the comments. The legs are a mess i know. In the next version ill try to fix and balance them a bit more also shortening his left (our right) leg.

    I have fixed the background in this version however. I think it gave it more depth as well as defining the form of the creature quite alot more.
