those silhouettes really add allot to this piece,
i struggel allot with silhouettes and characters myself, do you have any tips for me?

anyway, it looks awesome as always ;)

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?

thx allot man, im actually working on a piece and i have the feel it's almost finished but i think it needs a little bit more (like a silhouette) so i'll start experimenting!
