You just have to learn when to use sharper brushes and when to soften them while you're speedpainting. Maybe you should start playing around with more custom brushes. Let the brush texture create detail while you focus on the overall composition.
Thank you a bunch for the helpful feedback. :) I did download some custom brushes.. I'll be toying around with them soon enough.
Much thanks. :>
Glad you think so. :)
This is superb! The pale moonlight and the raging flames create a good combination when it comes to contrast. I know for a fact that foreshortening in any form isn't easy, but I'd say you pulled it off nicely! Just a quick question out of curiosity: is it a katana he has across his back? It looks like that to me.
Thank you! It could be! I wasn't too concerned what type of sword it was, I just wanted it to be a fantasy setting, so I thought a sword would help show that. :>
