Ok Daniel here goes…
First where is the focal point of the image? Is it the man? the god?
I ask because I am distracted by so many things. Now I understand you want to put them all in, but why not try one at a time. Then build on the image.
Given that, why not remove the bottom stuff, Sorry I don’t know what that is meant to be, branches?
Then strip away the textures on the God, because that will help you get the framing right, and not be distracted on what the textures are. Which will need to be improved.
Also whats the concept, is it a kindly God, eg outreaching his hand to this man?
Or is it a less than benevolent one, who demands worship. If thats true, then shouldn’t the man be on his knees? If so how are we given the composition going to see that? Because right now, it looks like his at the top of a tower, right?
But from the title “bow down…” it seems like he demands worship, if that’s the case maybe the angle is not defining that for me the viewer, because we should be clearly be seeing the man kneeling, or at least in a position that defines him as the worshipper.
So if you cut and paste, this… http://tomschlueter.blogspot.com/2011/07/statewide-call-to-pray-day-forty.html
or google images… worshipper kneeling prayer
put that in the lower right, I think the viewer will get a better representation of what the piece is about, if thats what you intend the viewer to perceive.
Look at religious symbolism too, how hands are raised when calling/summoning a god/ devil, then changed once the god/devil appears to a supplicant position.
Look too at typical religious gestures, the man kneeling, the god or priest places his hand on the head, what does that signify? Is that what you intend?
I’ll leave it there, but I think that will give you some things to think about, some to agree with, some disagree, but either way, I hope it makes you think about the composition / the theme / the viewer / and how to cojoin them to give your art a voice, and something the viewer can immediately grasp which may make your final image all the better for it.
