Much better. Maybe make the face in the background a dark brown sillhouette so it looks less defined? I think it should all be the same value so as to point out the man more. But yeah, great job on the dude.
Looking good,i like the metal on his legs so maybe try adding some of that to more of his chest and add some detail to his chest too.Looks good so far.
keep it up .james
p.s are you uisng painter and if so what brushes
your figure studies are great, and i love you characters, too.
plus you got a strong understanding of light&shade and texture.
keep it up, hombre.
your coloured stuff is totally dope! nice shadings and light! i just want to do some of those too when i see your sketchbook!
the drawings are a little worse, maybe you should do some sketches, studies, gestures, etc. with a pen or a fineliner?. .
Hey fedezz, that background is way better. I love it. I do think you could push the contrast a little more by darkening the closest foreground rail. I also think the ships in the back, at least the two that are pretty close, should be closer to the color of the one he's standing on, and have a few more darks/lights just to give us an idea of what they look like. It took me a while to figure out that they were ships because of the change in color/ lack of definition in the people on top.
I also think it would help you to do some more gestures/ quick studies with a pen to work on line quality and confidence. I like your illustration style, but there's something nice about the loose confident strokes in some of the digital painting masters on this site. I think you have the refining process down, but you would benefit from only using it sparingly, to establish focus, and being loose in other places.
Hope that all made sense keep up the good work.
You've got a great sense of design in a lot of these pieces, but I don't see it coming through as much in others (like the CHOW entries).
Believe me, I know it is easy to get preoccupied with the "painting" and details and miss the initial intent and design. You've got solid design strength there -- take more advantage of it!
Good work! Keep it going!
Keep it that way
Love your use of color, I'm taking notes!
Keep 'em coming!
WOW... wish I had painted that...
You and Entdroid are a couple? Awesome! You're both such cool peoples, wish you guys the best! You should have art babies!
What's this Vyle DVD?

cool stuff man. I like the speculars and values in the steampunk pilot's leg and arm much better in the first layin, but the finished product is sweet. Your process shots are pretty cool, it would also be neat to see some of those things come through in the final instead of tightly rendering everything. Also, his orange jacket lost saturation from the layin to the final, which doesn't draw enough attention to him. Just some crits to keep you on your toes.
Muy bueno el update fedezz, me encanta los diseños que hiciste para risso. Excelente laburo la verdad, el progreso tuyo y de entdroid es increible, me alegra mucho que esten laburando a pleno, y con risso? tremendo. Y si no te molesta que te pregunte como ligaron el laburo o ya hicieron algo anteriormente con el?
Un abrazo che, segui asi.

Your designs for the game and other products are fun to look at.
Bedezz I love what you're doing with the textures and dot mapping! Are you overlaying them or using more textured brushes? I only ask cuz I am scared at those things, but need to get theminto my work somehow.
You're stuff is clean and refined. Really fun to gander at!
the airplane commander is fantastic... man he seem so proud and the atmosphere is great.
your other stuff is also good i like the lightning .
Think you could of made it better by pushing the textures on his clothes.Also his hands are a little small and you could of made the face better.
keep it up .james
p.s where did you get that brush texture
Hey man, perspective doesn't bother me, it's intentional right? seeing as how you're going illuminated manuscript style, I haven't seen one scribe piece in those where the perspective jived. Sweet idea tying the most modern art form with ancient history.
Yeah i kind of figured that's what happened. I just didn't like it when they did that either I like the black dude's hand. I'd either put in the orcs feet or play more off of the kind of "layered" feel it has right now (like a stage for a play). It might be cool to do that more and put lots of obviously flat layers in the background. Looking forward to the next version.
