Something I've been jumping back and forth with for a while, it's from the Novel/Anime/Whatever called Slayers!
Lots of experimenting and trial and error went down on this one. I ended up changing the poses a lot during the process, and it still doesn't feel quite right so feel free to help out by leaving some kind of critique in the comments. (Thanks!)

Thanks! ^^

Great facial features and solid understanding of anatomy, colors are vibrant and detailed and overall good composition. Great work!
If I were to point out my problems with this piece- The edges of the characters could be smoothen up abit, I think you could benefit from a larger canvas to help you with that.
Also light sources could be better communicated, for example the fire orb held by the central character doesn't seem to emit light on any of the characters, also if we establish that light is mainly coming from the front their shadows could be slightly stretched back.

The poses all seem correct and are dynamic and interesting, in the future try to either have them all in poses that bounce off each other rather than just look good individually, so you could really sell the notion that they exist in the same space rather than brought together from four different images.

Again, it is a great piece and your hard work really shines through! The fact that I'm talking about lightsources and posing and not coloring and basic anatomy already means you're on the right track ^^

Skogur responds:

Wow, thank you so much for those kind words!
To be honest I was not sure what to do with the fire orb, I was afraid that if I were to put some red light on the edge of the blonde guy, it would look like his hair was gonna catch fire.. which I guess proves your point of having the characters correspond better to eachother haha.

Thanks again for taking your time to writing such a detailed review, and also for becoming a fan! ^^
