so glad you pushed the values, that was the one thing that was lacking before.  beautiful work.  any chance of doing a project in it, or is this just for something new in art?

i wonder what would happen if you used widepixels.....
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

There's not much I can say.  I'm just amazed at all your work, Helm.  The way you drew the anatomy on this, it reminds me a lot of the Metal Gear concepts.

Came out awesome!

There is some jaggyness going on on the near leg, i think you should have the diagonal outlines always end in blue not in red, makes it smoother.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Very nice. However, i think you may be hindering the piece from reaching it's full potential by not giving it a background (more than just "a background", but a universe in which to exist).
You're probably a bit tired of it by now, but don't discard that idea just yet.

The original idea I had were primordial mists around the character as he returns from the underworld, but I think it's iconic as it is and doesn't need overworking. Not everything needs to be painted in for this one, it's not a widescreen special fx shot in a movie, let a lot happen without them being visual

either that or I'm just bored!

I prefer the sincere "I'm bored" explanation than the all the other stuff, which just seems like a cop-out, baby. Was hoping to convey the "full potential" notion to you, but i guess it didn't make it.


Edit: i appologise if that seems rude. I just look at all that black around him, and feel empty inside. I feel this could be much, much better with a proper "techniquely innovating, broodingly mood" environment.
