Actually... hmm. I think the guy was better shaded in #33. I think the reason he looked too dark was because the pillar beside him is too bright. He's meant to be secretive, merging into the shadows, and now it looks like he's standing out in the sunlight.

Just my thoughts, it's still coming on excellent

Work In Progress: Atmospheric color study 1



Here comes the very first color study, nothing is set in stone right now color-wise, even though I do think that the Zeron girl will do well in red.

According to the Baron's suggestion I darkened a bit the central pillar (and the standing maquis with it) opinions?

LightSovereign, teq, Nekomouse thank you!

...hmmm, if no one objects, I think the color scheme could be this one, then . Will do my very best not to lose in color anyone of the good points the sketch had, feel free to rap my knuckles if I do.

Yep, it's looking good. Some very natural poses and good composition.

One minor crit, I think the lighting is a little bright in places; the blue light on the left-most pillar especially. All I'll say now is look at the woman's right arm and also at the floor - that's the ambience and hue I think you should be aiming for.

Keep up the good work, it's on its way to being a winner!

I like the layout overall, you have a nice diagonal line running from left top to bottom right. You do need a quarter inch more space on the left and the top or crop into the female character to perhaps create more presence of action. Unlike other comments, my eye first goes towards the kneeling guy he is the only one outside of the diagonal vision line. The girl is the last visual factor though, and as I believe you mean for her to be the focus, you might want to mix things up to refocus the eye.
