Usually the silhouettes come last and though they come last - they generally speaking still steal the show. Human figures definitely hit some sort of switch in our brains that makes us focus on them almost more than other forms of contrast.

Perhaps it helps to get the picture to a relative finish and make sure it stand up on it's own merit before working too much on the figures. Most often than not I move the figures around on their own layers or play with them in different positions and poses. It's all reactionary, sort of test, retest and revise - asking myself if it works or not, why or why not and how to improve it.

Hope that helps a little?

What a great work =)
I love the association of colour, and the labyrinth that we discern on background (It's like that we say, isn't it ?) is just... gorgeous.

Continue like that man, you've talent

This picture reminds of Prince of Persia or the Jade Quarry only blue"r" and with Cantha feel with it. It doesn't have that obvious overlay texture "touch" feel like the first Guild Wars. Are you using photoshop CS5 with the new paint feature? I haven't tried CS5 photoshop for the "New" painting feature to know. Do know anybody that uses the new CS5 brush feature? I wish can work for NCsoft. Peacekeeper, "Runescape > GW" *cough* *cough*. Seriously I wish I can work for NcSoft :crying:. I like the the guy with the spear in this painting I kind of wonder and hope that it will be the NEW CHARACTER CLASS for GW2. But that's just wishful thinking.

Thanks very much. I use PS CS3 at work. I tried the demo of CS5 but wasn't too impressed with the new brushes. I'll have to try again in the future.
