This one, I'm not sure what feeling you're trying for. The style seems different from realism, because of those heavy outlines, or perhaps it's just not finished yet, so I'm not sure if this overpaint is very helpful. There's no indication of lighting, so I guessed and made my own.





Dickma, sorry I overlooked your image, I guess it happens easily with thumbnails (although I never promised to overpaint on every image submitted). I'll try to make the guy look more fierce, tomorrow.

@ dickma , Steven Stahlberg___ Thanks friends...that's so sweet. The paintover seems that has given a more clear view and a more calm image. Thanks Steven ..i think i get it now what i have to do, guy on left..is on normal scale..(maybe i have done a mistake there, will check) but i think it's his pose that gives that wierd look. i like your sky suggestion more too.
Thanks also dickma ...your comments are most appreciated. It seems that finally either i have to make drops very small or delte them...some leaves is a good idea too. Rooftops..i took ref from "Hero" movie..maybe i should reesearch more..will do so!


Thanks..u just gave me a new perspective to work on this.

P.S ; this thread is one of the really smart and cool ones.

I'm doing very well Steven, hope you & yours are too.

I have a piece I did about a year or so ago, that I was never really happy with and I was hoping you'd take a look...

I was going for exaggerated proportions, kind of a Biz look... But it just came out as her having a crooked neck and huge legs! Any suggestions on how I can keep the proportions slightly exaggerated, while still keeping my anatomy believable? Should I just go for a completely different pose all together?




Any advise would be appreciated dude.

Not sure whether this is a real character, but being a Matrix fan, I just had to go for it and make a scene (just a few millions of polys) inspired by the movie. Want it to look like the sentinel is attacking the ship, fast going forward to the camera.Also want it to have that matrix-real-world atmosphere, just can't seem to get it right.

For that perspective emphasis work, you should concentrate on camera work. Think about motion blur, camera zooming blur and DOF. Also, there is not enough glow and illumination of the Red Eyes. Also. the sentinel and the Osirus is a bit stick together, Changing hue of the spaceship may help.

Are we allowed to post more? Feel free to ignore if not, but here's mine:




Perhaps some pointers on the anatomy, or anything really would help.
No reference used.

good afternoon everyone (at least its afternoon here)

at first i want to say its really generous of you to do this for the community

ive been struggling with myself since this thread was plugged wether to submit or not, but since im really stuck here and really could use some help.

Its not a real deeper meaning picture, more of standart fantasy thing. She flet from the world to be with her friends the birds at the branches of the great world tree, watching the world from afar. getting messages and news from her friends.

i spend a big amount of time on this, more than i care to admit only to quit near the end cause something feels really off.

thank you very much for your advice in advance.

i like the idea of this thread as well as others.

there is alot of neglect on alot of artists that are trying to come up in the scene. although there is a section for works in progress alot of the senior artists that are here ignore those areas.

not sure if alot of artists believe that they should not trifle with helping, or forget that they were in that place one time ago.

hope more get a little more active in threads like this, it helps invigorate and show beginers that this place is not just for the more experienced people.

The bird lady. I love the lower half of the image, branches, corset and tail on her, don't change that. It's probably still a bit too dark at the top, making it 'top heavy'.
