    I'm really liking the progress man. The tree is already pretty defined/detailed, can't wait for the characters. As for some feedback, from my point of view, the humans/victims' seems abit... happy? Maybe drawing they mouths to be more like D: instead of :D can bring out the frighten look? But overall you did an awesome artwork. I myself can't even draw body proportion right, let alone face expressions. :/

    Btw, mind if I ask what model/brand of graphic tablet you're using for this? And can you give some pointers on how to do colorings? Or perhaps you can point me to some links. I'm sorry if I'm asking too much. ^^"

    ty, but the faces are meant to be like that. its an exploration of the relationship between conflict/violence/sacrifice and progress, and basically the civilians smiling are meant to represent our fascination with violence. its a pretty complex work which hopefully will convey a lot of meaning at the end.

    i use a wacom pen tablet. colouring is easy, lighting not so much. you need a fundamental understanding of how lighting affects certain surfaces, and i can't really teach you that because alot of it comes with practice. i'm not very experienced anyhow, just a 17 year old art student. you'll want to just google colouring tutorials, concept art tutorials etc., and look for digital painting tutorials on youtube. you can also search for tutorials on deviantart like this one http://yuumei.deviantart.com/art/Cloud-Tutorial-Part-1-396507964

    updated with the finished work!

    had to cut out a lot of shit to finish by the deadline, including the poor protoss zealot :( that may also be why it's lacking detail/proper shading in some places. im pretty happy with master chief tho :D

    Good outcome. Sad about the protoss, on the other hand the chief does look awesome.
