I Love It! So Detailed. So Friendly Looking Its Awesome!
The first look at the artwork, I kinda laughed because it just seems sorta comical and cute to see a chibi skeleton running with an axe that's bigger than himself on a horse skeleton that I don't even think even has back legs. I don't know what your intentions on the actual artwork are like whether you were going for a realistic or cartoonist appeal but I enjoyed it. I really liked the trees and the avoidance of lineart.
If I had to say what's a little perculiar from my perspective (it's a mood point because it may be intentional) is that there's a contrast between the realism in the background (I don't know, I found the trees to be rather realistic) and the cartoon-styled skeletons. Even if you were unconsciously going for some really skewed, abstract skeletons, it conflicts with the viewer's perspective between what the background portrays and how the skeletons literally fit into the scene (in terms of depth between the skeletons and trees) It's kinda hard to explain because I don't usually say these things outloud but imagine 2D figures on a 3D landscape , their shadows should allow the viewer to unconsciously perceive the 3D shape/solid figure. Maybe a bit more definitive shadows would help whether or not you're going for realism or not.
I can see how there needs to be more depth in the shadow, thank you for the help! And yes I was going for cartooniesh look.
Good work, I like the consistency of the color pallet and how the axe was colored to match the environmental lighting. Nice pine trees as well. That said the piece is quite muddy, I recomend getting some good Photoshop brushes if you haven't already (i recommend https://www.kylebrush.com/) and using the lasso and clear brush setting when ding lineless art to get a crisper feel to it. For shadows you should use a multiply clipping mask layer with a non black brush, and adjust the transparency depending on shadow strength. keep practicing, and consider entering the beginner category.
Thank you for the help and the kind words! I'll try what you said. I already have all Jazza's Brushes, and what brushes to you recommend to get from Kyle?. And what do you mean clear brush? (Srry if i sound like a noob to ps for asking)
