Giving advice for your fantasy paintings

:iconarisuonpaa:
I'm in a mood for sharing my advice for any fantasy related paintings. By default I'll post my comments both on this thread and on the deviation. Let me know if you prefer something else.

Please only one deviation per post.

Here are some samples from my gallery. Any comments on these are always welcome!

Thanks for looking :) I'm mainly concerned about the general composition/focus, and if the anatomy looks ok.

this one here's my fifth digital painting if I remember correctly; mostly I have the most trouble with digital painting techniques (textures and so on). Thanks! Ja niin, suomeksikin voi puhua :D

I like how you're leading the viewer with your shapes. You could add a bit more marginal since now the composition is a little tight.

A light source that is coming directly from the left gives easily a flat feeling. Might be more interesting to have the light coming from an angle. Also, try using warm/cool color contrast when shading. That means warm colors for highlights and cool colors for shadows. Or you can do it the other way around too.

The claws could be darker since now they create lots of contrast.
