Silent, stony, brave. Those three words stick out to mind as I gaze at this particular digital painting. First off, I love the texture you used in this piece. The fur, the metal on his armor, and his hair is amazing. One thing I don't quite like is the shadow over his eyes. It could've been done more effectively, but you did okay with that. All in all you did a great job with this. Beautiful lighting as well, I love the shadows and highlights. You really make this character feel alive. Brilliant work maestro. Beautiful, brilliant work. Have an awesome day.
You got some nice work in your gallery also. Like this, it's amazing. Like you said in tutorial, knowing when to stop is hard part, I usually end up overdoing every little detail This is good, not too much, not too little. Also colors are really realistic, something I've tried to work on... And apparently will have to keep on trying
WOW! Only five to six hours???! The textures you have going in this really makes it that much more authentic I think! The fur and the metal and the leather, they all look so good and you can tell them apart really easily.
