He carries alot

There’s a smooth mix of warm and cool colors that specifically being the gentle green and red of the background, Thin, yet bold line work distinguishes the figures from the central colors of the entire image allowing the heavy presence of the color scheme to run gracefully throughout, Dark shadows around the old man’s face along with the presence of a single eye generate an omniscient tone typically associated with older men, The city on his back accompanied by his hunched pose further emphasize this concept of a level of wisdom that could be overwhelming, A story is created by this image which makes it all the more interesting to view.

Very nice work here and with this one I dont see any changes needed you have done a fantastic job here.


Very Unique.

I think you have the right idea and you did do an amazing job. I just have a few problems with it. For one, the clothes seem too simple as if they had been quickly sketched out so you could finish this right away. Also, the details that you did were amazing, but you did just stick to details for the anatomy. The only anatomy that I have a problem with is the hand on the staff. You gave him two right hands so his thumb wasn't in the right place. Once you fix these things and apply a little more shading, this will be a drawing worth remembering, even if it is inspired by my favorite card game. :P 4/5 ; 7/10

well you got me wit ther hand ill admit but i just didnt want to add alot to his cloths to be honest part of why they look so plain is because the alot of the vibrancy of the image was lost during the scan
