I personally thought the narrower shoulders looked better... The only real crit I have is to either shorten or cut off the shadow cast by his foot, it seems way too large and shapeless.

For the title... maybe you can make it the colors of the orb he has and give it the same glow as the orb? But that might look kinda tacky, unless you handpaint the glow with swirls or something.

Me, too. The broader shoulders matched the earlier sketch, but not the new direction you've been going with the painting of your somewhat geeky character.

I like the white for the author's name with its current placement, but if you color the title with a hint of yellow or gold instead of all white, maybe it will help contrast it better against the full moon behind it as well.

eishiya: That, my friend, is an example of the "beauty" of doing artwork for a rather indecisive client. The shoulders have changed at his request. I see what you mean by the foot shadow, the foot changed but I forgot to shrink the shadow (thanks!). As for adding a glow to the text, that might start to read as fuzzy when the image is shrunk for such purposes as a cover thumbnail.

tatiana: See above about the shoulders. I like your suggestions on the title. I'll try a little bit of experimenting with it...

ANYTHING else? Speak now or forever hold your left nostril!

Hi there LDiehl (or do you prefer Laura or Mrs. Diehl?)

Actually I'm also subscribing to this thread while I go over the rest of your work. They have such magical lighting and colors, so just looking them over takes way longer than I intended.
How's your day?
