To be honest, this started out as nothing more than a shading test, and really it ended that way too. It just so happened that I was really happy with how most of it turned out, so I decided to upload it.

I plan for this to be my last "fan-art" for a while, by that I mean I want to work on drawing 100% out of my head, and in more dynamic poses so-to-speak, as I feel I need to work on those.

Pretty good, except for the head. Otherwise it's great!

I remember seeing this in the forum! It turned out well! You really got the pose down! One thing that bugs me, is there seems to be no defined light source. Don't be afraid to add some deep defined shades in there. Other than that, it's awesome! The suit is spot on, and the glowy thingermabobbers (don't know what they are called xD) are perfect on detail. :D Good work!

Thanks a lot, man! I appreciate the feedback. Glad to hear the pose came out well *phew*

For the light source, I tried to make it come from the right side, semi to top right. I then even tried to reflect that in the background, making the top right the lightest. Any thoughts on how I can improve my lighting in the future? You said, "Deep, defined shades" Care to elaborate a bit more?
