Starting to render in forms and paint away the lines. I'm changing my usual approach with this image (almost by accident!) I would normally have color added by now, but i want to paint in the values and get the atmosphere right before I start adding colour

Looking great so far! :) At this stage you can already start to indicate some steam on the glass window... or some toxic, genetic slime, dripping from his mutated arm.. :)

Put 10 on the doors, or something.
Make her sweating and covered in some dirt,
for now she is to porcelain.
Nice work!

Great drawing! I love the style in general. Maybe the scene need something more....dramatic?

Love it. The only "problem" I can spot is her face. She is like "meh, potatoes". Not impressed (which, considering action, looks a bit... surprising). Otherwise- I just envy you skill.

Very nice. But the "gray" picture while that the color looks better. But nevertheless - it is very interesting. Successful work!

atmosphere and depth of field added

Dozzer, this is looking good. I don't now why but I think putting a small light on the gun in her left hand just above her eyes would help draw the viewer to look at her face. You can see if it helps or not.
Great image.

looks really good.I think you can put her eyes on the subject.All so you can unify the color palette with a dominant one.
All the best!

Getting closer to the finished image

this is pretty nice. there is only one thing I could criticize and that might be related to the size of the image here. As small as it is here in the forum it's hard to read her eye direction and it seems to me a little bit like she is not really noticing the monster behind the door. however in the initial sketch was absolutly clear on that matter.
if you still have time you could make the eye direction a bit clearer but all in all nice work.
