I'm going to do a speed painting of that really soon. Did not have any idea for it, so the character was developing during whole process of painting, same with background.

Great setup here! The fact that you refined the lines and shape of your main focus (this character) and left the background more simplified and less contrasted makes this image work very nicely in terms of clarity. He does look a bit paper-cut however. To fix that I suggest duller hues on his feet and backside so he blends more with his environment (such as toning blue his back arm/ponytail so that it looks like there is some depth there). Much better once more, good work.

What an ambitious piece, very well done! Your piece holds its own fairly well in terms of its composition - the balance of where the viewerâEUTMs eye is drawn and how the piece is laid out is neat and compliments the image and style. It's clear to me that you really challenged yourself with this piece, you're trying various advanced techniques which are really hard to get right, and while some areas aren't perfect, the ambition and care taken bring it to a level of which you should be proud. Be wary when painting in your colors of using black - black is not a natural color. A shadow on or inside a yellow or blue object is not black, it is a darker shade of yellow or blue, and to paint black over top in many cases, is jarring to the natural feel of the colors. Overall the piece is really well done and you should be proud. Thanks for sharing and keep up the good work!
