rawr...they will take over the world. Im actually getting pretty decent at this...another year and i might actually get down the art of doing a finished work...
This is a very good beginning. I would say that it needs more of a finished look to it. Some of the details aren't popped out or anything and it does lack details, at this point. You are correct though, it is a good image. I think with a little more work, it could be a great image.
Yeah, you have good and careless brushstrokes, and that's a good start, makes me think about Glintx or JQuay, you need to start describing more with these strokes... but you're on your way!
keep it up
