Really like the new hand (the one on the left) and the lightning of course !Nice changes on the cleaner/simpler scpeter as well.
It's getting increasingly cool !
I think what you need is some cast shadows on the rocks he's standing ( nice work btw)
Thanks @mr_dessin! I am glad you like the new hand! I was worried I wouldn't be able to pull that off... maybe not perfect yet, but it's much more like the holographic look I wanted. The lightning is a better single light source now. The scepter was difficult... but now I've got this idea that it's a Scepter AND sword. I'll do some concept drawings of that later.
@tbrk Thanks for your compliment! I agree with you, the rocks need work. Thanks for your crit!
It's looking really nice. The composition is quite epic! I would dial down the saturation a bit, and maybe throw some warm hues in those black shadows. Can't wait to see the finished product!
Hey @sanguine! Thanks for the helpful suggestions! I dialed down the saturation. I don't know what you mean by adding warm hues into the shadows though. When I colourized the shadows a bit the whole peice looked flat. Could you explain what you were meaning?
Looks great! What I'm saying is that the darkest darks that we see usually still have some hue to them. So, for example, i think the black underneath the blue cloth thing at the bottom of the image would look better as very dark blue instead of black.
Oh okay! So something more like this?
Wow this looks more and more powerful! You do a great job, keep doing!Maybe the hero needs more space on top, you could add more lighting effects in the sky and/or make the staff bigger and more readable.
I love the direction so far! I would also maybe add something like a enemy unit, tree, wildlife, mountain, etc. for a better sense of scale and just how big (or small, but not likely) the hero is.
Yes those shadows are looking much better!
Thanks @frankenstejin!!! I really appreciate your thoughts! I cropped it to have more space on top. What do you think?
@alexbrewer2238 thanks for your critique! I've added some troops and trees. I hope this establishes his scale. Do you have any tips?
Awesome @sanguine! Thanks for your advice!
Here is the latest version. Happy New Year everyone! I hope you make some great "Memories" in 2018!
Maybe blue troop accent would be better...
Oblivion is near... Arm yourselves.
I took a break from working on this guy for a few days. Tonight I came back with fresh eyes and tidied up some stuff. I'm open for critiques!
Did you cropped the canvas little bit smaller again in the last update? I see that hahaIf the troops belong to the hero, blue is working well.
Yeah, the sky was just too vast for me. lol.
Thanks! I'm glad the troops are working together.
Finished! Thanks SO MUCH for all your help everyone! Here are those old sketches just so they stay in the thread:
Don't you.... Forget about me!
Looks like I didn't make the cut. Some great finalists there! Congrats to all those who made it. This was a fun community to engage with. Thanks for all your help.
