sweet dude

it definently looks like comic book art. like the dark colors and his yellow eyes really pop out. since your profile pic is a space marine from warhammer 40k i was wondering if that was a techpriest. i might be completely mistakem but i was really curious. over all good job and if u practice this style you could have a future in comic books....u never know

Thanks =] I'm glad you like it. Yeah, my profile is an image from Warhammer, although I can't recall which type.

its good

I like the colors and the artwork of this piece but there are very small imperfections. Beginning with his hands. The left hand isn't a big deal since it is concealed but the right one looks terrible.I think you should have removed it completely and covered it somehow or had his hand in a complete fist, covering up the fingers. I think the smoke could have been a little better and less dense. It seems to completely take away from the character itself. Lastly, his bicep looks ridiculous. It looks as if you placed a large pack of smokes or a square on his upper arm instead of a muscle. To fix that I think you should get rid of the hard lines and dark shading around it, especially near the top.

After all this issues though, this piece is very cool and I love the comic book style.

One last note, I can accept that his leg disappears behind him because of the perspective but his left shoulder looks too bulky and unnecessary after further inspection. I think you should have just left the shoulder plate on the left arm to match the right one. Great job though, keep it up.

Thanks for this. I'm still very new with using a tablet and learning comic style so the nitpicking does help me very much.
