Cool bad guy! Gold!
Super Lichtverteilung! Gold!
Great job! Gold!
Very nice painting. I like the OSL, but you could improve on the logic - it’s very bright and you’ve painted the light on his shoulderplate, but it wasn’t added on other elements in proximity to the sword (like skulls on backpack). I would also consider adding a stronger highlight or some color contrast around face - sword completly dominates the composition, which is nice but with strong light and shadow compositions, it’s good to guide the eye trough the most important elements of the sculpt. In this case the eye sees only the ultra bright sword and doesn’t want to instantly follow to his face and other elements, which are very nicely painted :) In my case I follow to his hand (almost white highlights), which is empty and doesn’t show anything. It would be nice if you showed his face (which is full of emotions) or maybe put something in his hand (blood would work nicely), to show a story in this composition.
Other than that, very good miniature with high technique :)
Thank you for the suggestion, it’s really helpful!
