Elementals - some tips?

on: July 31, 2021, 04:52:04 pm

I did these.

In these two, does the fire on the right look right? im not sure how it would look coming out from him especially wonder about the background fire at feet level, between the legs. 
One the left, does the lights and shadows make sense in terms of shape. How would the internal lights affect him more than they do now?
On the right, does it look ice, or rock? Also does it look consistent in terms of shape and lights.

Thank you in advance. They are the Storm atronach and flame atronach from the game Elder scrolls IV - Oblivion

Edit: added frost atronach

I recognized them immediately. Flame atronach is suffering from lack of proportion. Frost atronach has the most problems. Proportion, pose, but also being too grainy. It doesn't really read as ice; it needs stronger planes. Meaning fewer breaks.
