Excellent job man, love the rustic reds and browns. Only advice i can give you is to watch you values. Im not sure if his left (our right) hand looks like it is closer than the one with the sword. Darker values make things "come forward". Also look up rim lighting, or reflected light. Will make his shadow side "pop". Other than that its an excellent piece, love, love, lovin it! Congrats on Front page! =D
The contrast is a little off, But I get what you're talking about.
Handle of "sword" is too short
Or is it too long?
I'm damn glad I found you, your art is epic-badass
I see some inspiration from pyramidhead and possibly soul calibur in this? Anyways truly great pic dude, nice work.
Pyramid head mostly.
In other words, a knight in shinin' armor. Congrats on th' frontpage!
