Conan

Tried to do a painting of Conan. Used some reference to achieve this effect in my actual low level. Any critique is very welcome. Hope it reads as intended.

Great Work, as CypressDahlia mentioned, the muscles look Strange, and the shadows are confusing. All that aside the proportions are wonderful and the blade is gorgeous!

Thanks for your opinion, confirming what Cypress said before. I'll try to get a better anatomy and better values in my next studies and pieces. I hope not to disappoint. Later! :D

Its pretty good but the issue here is that you're using very hard edges to define organic shapes, which is making the muscles look plasticy. Also, you've chosen references with dramatic lighting,which is confusing your understanding of the muscles. Try using references with neutral or top-down lighting, so it doesn't mess up the way you read the muscles.

hmleao responds:

Thank you so much for taking the time to critique. Now that you've said it, I can see things that could be better. I'll analyse again with the reference and keep an eye open to those flaws on my studies. I'm self taught and every time someone give me a critique like this I have to get the most out of it. Thanks a lot.
