Hey, this looks cool but I have some suggestions for you. First of all everything is really dark and there is no consistent lighting. The dude is getting some dark orange light from the left and the monsters are getting some blueish light from the right. Also it's kind of hard to see what's going on in the picture, I mean I can tell the guy is shooting the monster, but it's just hard to see things.

I suggest looking at other illustrations either on here or on deviantart (there are a lot of talented artists on there). Looks for things that you like about those illustrations and try to incorporate that into your style. But mainly it's just that everything is so dark and it's hard to see. Try posting more art in this thread and maybe other people will have something helpful to say.

Oh, one more thing. You should use harder brushes to paint details. Objects closer to the viewer should be more crisp while far away objects are not. You seem to like science fiction and monsters so here is an example of a guy who is pretty much a master at it, he did concept art work on Star Wars and many other things http://www.fengzhudesign.com/

Here is another one Using the same background as the privious one however i am using the Devil from the old movie "Legend"
http://monstersandbeasts.blogspot.com/2011/03/devil.html

I have my piece as the most visible added more detail to his body trying to go for that Sparta look lol.
the faded piece was from the original screen shot in the movie that i faded into my old background sky.
After reading the reviews i assumed the skulls shouldn't of been the 3 separate colors And i blurred it a tad bit more so you can tell the background from the foreground.

the words was just out of boredom :P
How does it look?
I know i should do some more touch ups but i want the read yalls opinion vs the non commenting zero bombers lol

Depends; have you traced this?


A rather disgusting-looking git that should have been disposed of ages ago.

Lol no tracing was involed in the images I post on this site. I did use the Photoshop program to color him as well as add a few effects to give a more realistic feel. Then pasted him on an already premade background that I had used ob my other images.

I don't plan on making this thread a panatomime, so I'm just going to be blunt:
Your gallery gets low scores because they look like you've grabbed an image, and filtered-smudged the hell out of it.

This is your Legend Devil pic, compared to a pic of an action figure found off the net.
Everything in this pic lines up, from the abs right down to the low lighting in the right arm.

You didn't draw this, and I strongly suspect some of your recent stuff are also filtered up pics of stuff grabbed off the net, since they differ radically from your submissions.
