Digital painting. Photoshop.
I go to print on Tuesday so any response is going to have to be fast. Stupid thanksgiving messing with my print people and their hours.
You "go to print"? This piece would be helped by adding atmosphere to strengthen mood and sense of depth.
It could use some cleaned up detail in the yellows of the foreground character to match the blues of the moonlight.
I see a lot of things that could be worked on. What is this for?

As Bai Fan said, there is quite a lot of defining to be done still. Especially on the nearest character to us, you should define the individual shapes better on the armor. Could even had small patterns and scratch up the surface of it. There could be quite a bit done to the background also as it feels very unfinished. You can add a foreground flayer and add some light blue fog and such to make it more complete but again there can be a lot more done to this piece, especially if you're going to print.
Define your horizon.
Two characters of the same height (such as the two brothers) will be cut by the horizon at the same point, regardless of depth (ex: if the horizon cuts through one of them at the belly button, then it will cut through the other at the belly button). They must be the same height and on the same level ground plane for this to take effect though.
Alright. This WAS a piece in my senior show. Because of lots of bad things it is now permanently 600 by 800 and will not be going to print. I had been working on it for 7 hours and to tell you the truth I was done with it. All the comments are great. The atmosphere is definitely something to add. And the lack of perspective was difficult to fix because I realized it was not there late in the work flow. I think, because I am not putting this one in the show as a printed copy I will hack it apart, throw in some perspective and define the crap out of that armor. Repaint it a third time and blow up the 600 by 800 to a proper print format. It won't be int he show but it will make portfolio hopefully. Thanks for the feedback guys.
