    !!!
    That's pretty rad. I dont do designs though but i could help. Haven't drawn anything for a week so i could give this a shot.

    I dont have much knowledge in design principles aside from basic ones. I mostly dabble in concept art
     
  4. Okay.. Okay Thanks tho but enough of the Fancy Reactions, I need every progress shot's you've done before finishing it and I'll give you a green light to rasterize the Image.

    Im not an artist for hire :/ i help people with their wips on my own terms and how i see them to make it better.

    It's one thing to give valuable feedback to someone, but it's another thing to request a fully fledged artwork.

    He *did* say "please"... But Roland, it seemed pretty clear he wasn't up for it.
     
  7. Nah I don't really wanted it to be actually improved, You can rework my logo in your own imagination @TheKurt009 I just want to see it rad and I'll print it soon so I'll photograph it with my Parachute cord weaves

    hey :) glad i just checked this while on break. did a 10 minute fix for this
    main thing i noticed that needed fixing was the anatomy of the troll. I didn't know if they're supposed to be double jointed or do their forearms bend like that but i had to resort to the normal human anatomy. The torso needed to be fixed as well :)

    i love the effort you put on the raptor :) i don't think there are any major fixes that needed to be pointed out. Except the left leg which only needed some minor fix :) i left that out though.

    Another tip i think i could give is when adding highlights, don't just drag the color slider up but instead drag them diagonally and also the hue bar too
    to add some color variance.
    another thing i did is add another color dodge layer and brushed on the metallic parts to give them that metallic feel, so the materials won't look the same :))

    i made the shadows more bluish to contrast the warm highlights which is just a personal taste :)
    oh and the more saturated feel was also a personal taste :)

    oh and also please avoid using absolute black or white,
    for the absolute white, those are just reserved for direct spotlights
    however, this tip can still be bended as some still look very well even when done so

    sure! :D glad to help!
    for starters the chest was too much to the side so i centered it. Glad i found a reference that fits haha!
    the elbows should look like it function as a hinge, and the muscle group in the arms look like it needs a reference :)
    studying anatomy does take a long time lol
    using references are a really great way to improve and is embraced by all art communities because you can't draw what you can't imagine/see
    it's also a great way to build up your visual library! :D

    heyo!
    your values were pretty much the same so with the guide of your shadows set i followed it and applied it :)
    the anatomy also needed some work, especially on the arms. I got a little confused on how to fix it haha but i tried.
    i also added some color dodge on the eyes and put a soft brush on the hair to make it seem glowing :)
    i didn't change any hues in it but it could also use some for color variety as having a near monochrome color palette sometimes make some piece look boring. Well, some haha
    oh and tip: having the same values makes a piece look flat.

    just an announcement, this thread isn't dead, i check hiveworkshop almost every other day so feel free on posting here!

    Thanks for the feedbacks~
    I guess the value that is pretty much the same mean the colours are quite similar right?

    How about this one?

    hey there!
    nice attempt with the metal material,looks good!
    i only added an overlay layer to blend the light on it to give that shine feel.
    i also adjusted the eyes to ace forward.
