nice work man..
i like your color usage, overall it's looking sweet.. although i think that the monster could use just abit more definition.. maybe just strengthening the shadows abit..

i agree with roman but why is the monsters left foot all blurry? its kind of distracting from the rest of the image. but i love the colors.

The creature's left leg and arm need to pop out a bit more colourwise. There's some nice perspective going on there, but it gets lost in the rendering. More definition in your base shapes will help lift the action from the background.

Nice drawing, like the line-work, i would say keep hammering at it seems like it would be more fun to keep drawing this one, just define everything more, i like the drama of the drawing.
P.S. maybe the old man is showing off a little....i would be proud too if i was him, ha ha ha (this p.s.comment is a joke)

Very nice and well executed. I like the storytelling in this peice even if it is fairly straightforward and simplistic.

You have a fairly dynamic design and a great scene with this. I like it lots.

A piece of advice

Good work man, but one thing doesnŽt fit for me: when I see the clear line definition and sharpness in the two banners or flags (left side) and the female warrior (Valkiria?)... then I see the viking and the monster and seems a bit out of focus, even when they are the main part of the action. I can suggest you using the same clear definition as the other named elements and the whole picture will become more coherent.

Sorry for my english, I expect you can read well my opinion. Good luck!

P.D.: In about two months, IŽll be doing myself some custom art for a rock band from Argentina, so you will be one of the guys IŽll ask for advice.
Not fate but what we make...
