It has been far too long since I posted my stuff on a site that is renown for its criticism.
Anyway, if I ever want to improve, I am going to need some harsh criticism on my work. Not only in the department of what I am doing wrong (which is obviously very much appreciated), but also because I think there is just something missing in my creations and I have no idea what. Anyway, this particular work is from a game I am working on, meant as "concept art" of kinds. The only thing I am painfully aware off that is wrong is the elemental's right arm, which is too long.
As far as backstory goes; the creature is an example of elementals I am going to use in the game, and are essentially creatures from a different plane of existence. Due to their not actually being fully part of the humans' plane of existence, they can only manifest a portion of their body, which translates to only their skeleton and some other elements of their body being visible. In the game, they are generally cloaked in their own element.
