Just as a general critique, your "shades" lack a wide range of value, especially on something as small as these.

On your shapes, each hue is too close together and you're really losing depth because of it.
Man cannot remake himself without suffering for he is both the marble and the sculptor.

I think you need to concentrate on one thing at a time wattsie, if you're making so many threads then there's a good chance you won't be working on a lot of things that you seemed so 'desperate' for criticism only a couple of days back..

Why not turn one of these threads into a dump of all your new works, and keep it updated.. Im getting the impression by tomorro this thread will be forgotten and you'll be onto a next piece with no trace of progression from your last.  :-\
I've not got anything interesting to type here..

I will update the first post with my other threads

I merged your last 3 threads, does not make it much cleaner, but at least now all is in one place.

Please do not go around making new threads for every little thing you make abandoing old things. Or at least spend some more time on the stuff you do before posting it. Thanks

I did give you some criticism on your mockup, I suggested some slight improvements but I just thought that all in all you were doing pretty well and wasn't in that desperate need of help. If anything you just needed to work on readability, I assumed this mockup of yours was something you were on-goingly trying to work on. You shouldn't expect people to hold your hand and take you along every step of the way, it's up to you as an artist to do the hard work.

And lack of thread responses is a poor excuse to stop working imo. The more you put into your work, the more people will want to help you.

In update to the swords project.
Here are 2 new ones.





The first one looks alright to me, needs a bit of work on the pattern thing next to the hilt.
The second doesnt. It doesnt look right, I tried making double blade with the dark grey colour on both but i think i've failed.
Crits please.

Hi, they look like swords to me! One thing I could add is that you could incorporate black in the shading or details for a more dynamic color range if the palette allows,
and I'm not going to crit your creative process, I'll leave that to you!
later
