i like it,specially the shield...looks very organic :)

I actually think the shield is the weakest part of this. The shape indicated by the brushing doesn't seem to match the shield. I'm not really a fan of strictly airbrush work, not as much experience in that kind of work so I can't offer too much help. The face looks awesome, but some of that level of detail could be applied to the rest of the piece. It really does look good, it's a very solid job, especially for a self proclaimed newbie, keep up the good work!

Good work. it would change a little more the color of the face and the metal.

I said shape, not texture.

I think you are right, I have lack of experience in brushing the metal object/surface.. maybe I can make them more detail or more rough on the surface?

It's not so much the brushing that I take issue with, though for such an airbrushed piece you might want to go a little smoother. What I'm talking about is that the shadow/highlight on the shield give it a really odd shape, like a flat sheet of metal with a ridge at the center, and a oval shaped hump around the ridge. Plus the outer edge on the right is shadowed where the outer edge on the left is midtone.

Im a newby too but i think what he is trying to show for the shield is like the front surface of it must have humps like the 'starfruit'.... and the metal is not flat ...(im not sure) :cool:

I got that, but then the shadows and highlights are still wrong.

well i think this pic is great, however the face, hair and sword could use more work. now i might be wrong but i think a darker background would improve this a bit, everything looks too gad damn bright its hurting my eyes!!! :p
take care guys
Carry your shadows through the rest of the figure. The shadows thrown by the crosses in the (I don't know what you call it) breast fabric indicate a light source from the up/right. We need to see a shadow under the chin, and under the fingers over the shield and over the hilt of the sword. And under the shoulder pad armor. Carry your shadows through the piece. Right now, the fabric is throwing the hardest shadows.
I like the piece overall - good work!
