This is an acrylic painting I did recently.
Many hours involved, original size 11X14 (in.)
Character based on a God called The Furor.
From a book I read called, The Dragon and The Unicorn.
Also a link to a bigger image here.

I think this painting could benefit from having more information included. From this painting, I'm not getting a very good feel for what this character is about. If you hadn't mentioned that he's supposed to be a god, I would have assumed that he was a farmer. Maybe, that is in line with what you were thinking...I'm not sure. Also, the background needs some work. Maybe you could add something to the background that would tell us more about the character and the world you envision him living in.
On your next painting, I would try to break up the composition a little more. Try not to put your character dead center on the canvas...it will make the composition more interesting.
I hope that helps you out a little:wip: :beer:

Thanks, sheep! I agree with you, the cardinal rule is to never make the focal point the center of the canvas. I need more experimantation and planning if I ever do this again. I painted with acrylics, which for me is a lot harder than oils. Once you put it down, it dries fast. I am still heavily influenced with the impressionists and tried to paint as such. It's also my first human ever. Thanks for the crits, (yes it need a background too doesn't it?)

I agree with wildsheepchase and have nothing more to add except on a lighter note you got your own style of painting and thats a good thing!
if you wanna work with acrylic a bit longer before it sets try a medium viscosity matte this way your gonna be able to experiment a bit longer with blends.
i use water sometimes to diluate it a bit more make it more transparent and fluid but with all the chemicals that tap water has you should use it carefully not to ruin your mixes!
keep going you got talent!
