Ryu: Fooray by Nubry Ryu: Fooray by Nubry
Had the urge to colour something else so I whipped this sucker up. Pritty happy with the outcome, though it lacks something and cant put my finger on it. Oh well its about 3.5 hrs work. Hope you like it.

I think the problem is that on the skin you got the highlights backwards. The warm tones are where the cool tones should be and then the other way around. There is a cooler light source in front of him yet the skin reflects a warm one in that direction, and all the cooler highlights on the skin are towards the warm light source to his back.

I still think it looks awesome, none the less.

Yes you are right!
Though that was just me choosing the incorrect colours the lighting is all correct though the colours should be a cooler colour. Was that what you ment?
Anyways thanks for your thoughts:)

You've clearly been doing this a long time, as your lines have all the professional polish of material you'd buy at a comic store.

I can find no real criticism of your skill here, but if you're looking for that something extra, the only things I can guess at are (1) upping the color and contrast of the lighting (that slight orange glow from behind could give Ryu a fiery sort of look if it were stronger), and (2) adding more to the background, even if it's just stretching the light-to-dark gradient further. The gradient flattens out halfway up the picture, so the top half is a combination of drama (the figure) and flat gray.

I always find that my stuff explodes into life when I add the light and dark, so that's usually what I point to for that "finished" feeling.

First of all the lines arnt mine a I have only been painting for a bit under a year.
I feel you are right about the bacground but I am too lazy to change that scene as how I have already done it once and Ill have a play with the secondary light source like you said.

Thank you for your feed back much appreciated :)
