I say you should try adding more contrast on the shadows, and maybe making the glasses not too dark, since now they look a bit like sunglasses to me.
That was something my teachers always got on to me about was the contrast. Constantly bugging me about getting my shadows dark and black, and my highlights white. Although I tried my best, I gained little ground on getting better at it. I am better than I used to be, mostly thanks to broadening my selection of tools, but I know I still have a long way to go. Thanks for mentioning that, I should do more still life and life drawing to keep practicing.

I like that axe, looks pretty awesome i think. also i am really liking that building perspective. i need to work on my perspective -__- tis quite annoying.
Thanks. I think I'll do another axe in perspective. I'm honestly not that great at axes, I have had more practice at blades, but since my current D&D character wields hammers and axes, I should get the practice in.
Good luck on working on your own perspective.

I always thought 3 point perspective was a bit ridiculous. 2 point is basically how we see things. 3 point makes it look all fish eye.
Actually, we have an infinite amount of vanishing points that are constantly moving as we move. Simplifying it down to two or three is just to keep artist sane. People who don't have large structures near them seem like they only have 2, but when you get to something on a much grander scale it gets more noticeable of more.
Also 3pts looks badass as hell if done right.... I am not to that point yet... but I hope to be one day.
Ok for my next pic I saw this orc/troll thingy in a book, and I wanted to draw one swinging an axe, or something. This was my first rough, and I went the orc route. His back came too stiff and not conveying the motion or power I wanted.The face also doesn't quite hold the rage I wanted either. So I made a second which will come in the next post...
