hi, 2hrs ps

I just dropped a lot of shapes until I could see something, I think I might like to finish this but now its becoming confusing... if anyone suggests any crits or changes I would try them out :)

Great Work as usual, Lucas.

The only thing that I find confusing is the actual knight. The way he's riding the horse and the fact that the horse is riding in the opposite direction to the demon, suggests that he's running away from it. However, the lance seems to be pointing at the demon...and the whole image has this whole feel like the knight is actually confronting the demon in battle, it's just the pose suggests different.

That's my 2 cents on it. Other than that, I like it a lot. Nice brushwork.

PS/wacom about 3 hours - his hand looked empty somehow!

embryotic, nice dynamic piece and i also think the brushwork is nice, especially in the areas where you managed to keep it quite loose(demon wings). one thing about the knight i noticed is that the proportions of lower and upper leg are off. imo the lower leg is much too short. good stuff man!

Daw - classic pose, nice shine on the sword - inspiring pic - and I just saw that he is smoking! lol lol - great addition!

bdh - nice design (like a crusader yea?)

Juan, Jpedro - thanks for the crits you're right - I dropped the lance and tried to show more clearly whats goin on, and 'tried' to make the leg a bit more foreshortened, thanks for the help :thumbsup:

nother 1.5hrs..

embryotic, as allways nice one, but, i like the first one version better, maybee is to much smoke in the second one, and u loose some of the spontaneus skratches that make your painting so alive and dinamic....but is nice to, i like the way u worked. (
