I may have bitten off more than I can chew again. Lighting, anatomy, architecture… Cracks are really starting to show. Might switch to abstract fine art instead of illustration.

This needs to be cropped some.

You're pretty good. And I'm definitely no professional, but one thing that strikes me as strange in the last image: if light coming from the left of the picture and hitting the right side of the pillar somewhat strongly, then why isn't that light hitting the front of her clothing a little more strongly? Especially on the legs. Still a cool pose and setting though.

I'm really into comic books and I can see you've got the dynamic nature of comics flowing through your art, though you're still shaking off the bad habits comic art always brings (big eyes is to anime as Liefeld ladies is to comics.)

@explosivedesign: Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Have to try a few variations.

Thanks Ernie, maybe put some cushions on the floor round where you're sitting...

Hey, I just had a horrible thought. For my OIC entry above, I think I've accidently re-made Tomb Raider. Given the ban on fan art for OIC's I hope it's not that close a likeness.

Oh good. As I say, the thought just popped into my head. Slightly regret mentioning it now.

OIC#35: Possible idea. Not a very original take, but the other stuff I tried was just too awful to post here.

Hmm, I think with the last piece you could make it a little more dramatic by increasing the length of the canvas, to give a bit more space at the top. Gives a sense of scale between the two characters, just a suggestion, but I'm not expert XD
