So your the original artist for this piece, I'm not sure which one I like better but they're both great. Everytime I see this I think O Fortuna or Adagio for Strings would be perfect background music for the scene. Any way great art, I'll stop babbling now.
Blabbing is never a problem. I'm glad you like it. And I agree. I actually like how he colored it more than mine. I tried for something a bit more dark. I should have attempted something more light like he had. Ah well. Que sera.
Your color is sort of, I don't know how to put this, rougher or gritier? It looks like used armor as if Tempest has fought in it. But the darkness kills some of the detail on his face. Although until I saw yours I didn't even know he was wearing a shirt underneath the platemail *notveryathletic's is completely black.
Sorry about the critique, I guess that's why my old school friends used to call me the critic.
Oh, well, your welcome? Even so now you know that so next time you color something you'll remember not to make it so dark detail is lost. Nothing is quite as important as the lesson you learn from each experience.
I'm going to have to commission you to finish that pic you did of me and Eric. Yes, I remember it and yes I still love it. (I think it would make him happy too.) Let me just review your post on pricing and I'll get you the cash.
Waaaaaaah! I had stopped doing that one because I know I could do better on the line work. And since your hair is different.... I'd need to re do it anyhow. But a commission would get me going again and you'd have the option of whatever you wanted in it to be drawn.
