Hmm..I have no idea what the above means....so um..

I like the dynamism here. You seem to be pretty good at shading so im not sure what pointers to give you. The only thing I could suggest is a more thurough three dimensional representation. Its as if you are drawing woodcuttings. Now, thats pretty impressive in and of itself-but to make the characters look truly 3d....you need to give them more depth. Try adding places with darker tones-perhaps show more shadows being thrown(light is towards him...and yet no shadow on wall). Now...all this is just advice-your work reminds of stuff done in the old days of Games Workshop-which is what ive always tried to do as well. Very well done.

Youīre right, with all you said, but I have to mention, thatīs a very old oicutre, as you can see, I hadnīt even had an idea of shading metal, a technique you showed me 2.But Iīll try my best to use you advice !"
