Well , I have sinked all my free time on this one all week long , I hope you guys and girls could give me some criticism and feedback in case something dont work properly , there is still time to go and add some more detaling or correct some mistakes I have made .

Anyhow thanks to all for future comments and support and thanks to Blizzard and DA to set up the competition and prizes , Its been a lot of fun and I have learned a lot pushing myself to the best of my capabilities , if I only make it to the 25 selected works i will be really happy. 

Hope you all enjoy my entry

You clearly have an encyclopedic knowledge of application. All of your colors blend well, but I would express to you the importance of black. Make the shadows of your figures darker, more prominent. This will give your work heavier weight visually. The work you do is classic pulp style, I think. You should be doing book covers, if you aren't already doing so. I'm curious to see what you would do with some old-fashioned fantasy gore, like Conan slicing heads off or two detectives shooting bullets into each other.

But I digress. Your work is killer. I admire your skill and find great inspiration in the art you produce. Stay the course and don't sell out.

What do you think?

My main criticism is the lack of elves.  What made you leave elves out of this illustration?  Are you perhaps prejudiced against them?  Are you an elf racist?  I think that may be true...

But seriously, the color in this is great, so great that it almost distracts you away from the fact that the drawing is so solid.  I love all the detail on the Witch Doctor and the creature in the background is really dynamic.

My only complaint is that I think the creature in the background on the right lessens the impact of the central image.  If it was just the Witch Doctor, I think this would be a knockout.  The creature in the back is so well-done and interesting-looking that you should give him his own illustration (!)  And that fiery orange background would be a great contrast to the blue glow of the witch doctor's left hand.  

Submitting to a Blizzard competition is tough -- they must get a million entries. Hope you did well.

I really don't have a complaint for this, I was looking for something to critique to help you out/help you improve but it's just really a beautiful piece. You obviously spent a lot of time on it and you did a great job with it. You made the blue color pop and be the main focal point which makes you WANT to look at the doctor, which is the main focus. I would of said maybe there's TOO much going on but there's really not even. It all flows awesomely.

I work on this for a week , one week that I didnt have a lot of work from other clients and
I could afford to commit to be a better artist and practice new ways to improve my art by working on 
this fanart piece. I think being part of a contest adds that factor of competitive goodness that makes you push your 
limits a little bit further and takes you out of you confort zone. In the end my main worry was that because Ive been working 
so mutch on it I couldnt see anymore If there was too mutch going on with detail or I should have toned down some areas.
I guess I should have added some blacks to it, but I think it would have broken a little the attencion grasp that the blue feathers 
added to the main character . 

Thanks for the criticism !

That's what mattered :nod: I put up a journal not too long ago in reguards to the FF13 contest that came out telling people that it's about doing the best that you can and having pride in it, and that's what matters!  And I think this is a winner from looking at it, you did a magnificent job!

You're very welcome! :highfive:
