    Bryzol: Konrad, thank you man! You know that means a lot to me coming from you! Here’s some more! DON’T OPEN PAINTSTOP!

    SolidSnakexxx: Yong, thank you very much! You know I would love to see a “Thai painting on PaintStop”, but it’s too addictive! DON’T OPEN PAINTSTOP!

    Captain Sensible: no, I’m not!I’m powerless! Those are not tutorials… they’re a cry for help and a warning! DON’T OPEN PAINTSTOP! Run Chris… run…

    Burchigb: you are very welcome, and thank you for dropping me a line! Looks like this PaintStop infection is quite nasty… anyways, get well soon and please tell the others NOT TO OPEN PAINTSTOP!

    AVTPro: Many thanks Alonzo, I hope they can be of some use. Thank you for taking the time to compliment! The PixoBug gave me quite a viscious bite… without that, these works wouldn’t even exist… .Do not follow that workflow.. DON’T OPEN PAINTSTOP!

    Cherea: thank you very much! Just saw the Top Row… PaintStop addiction… why, why did you open PaintStop!

    Point: hey man, glad to hear from you! Thanks for dropping by and, you’re welcome! Quote:” gotta go have something I have to do.” That’s ok, as long as it’s not PaintStop related, cause you'll be hooked for life...! But if you do, I’ll be looking forward to see what you come up with!

    Schiefer: you’re welcome! Good you tried he stencil, cause it really is a core concepting tool that lets you experiment with shape: regardless of the subject: you could be concepting the shape of a character, a piece of furniture, a shoe, a logo, a pattern, or a weapon, … . Why didn’t I tell you NOT TO OPEN PAINTSTOP!

    Tokio: hey man! Thanks a lot for your many kind words and for taking the time to comment! Well, when I work on the anatomy studies, I sometimes wish a where a doctor, but alas. I’m glad my workflow is of some use to you! I am looking forward to seeing much, much more of your PaintStop works in the future, it’s great!

    great step by step - i learn so much here at your thread etcher !
    once more thanks for all that valuable information

    i found two Z's one formed by the blood on the ground and another one formed by the tenebrae's right arm & wing and the blade of the sword

    the final compo looks really good, but i am not sure if i like that pretty bright red in that picture...it probably might look better being less saturated
    because it is a night scene and everything might look more tone in tone

    maybe you make it a very dark red with shiny highlights on it?

    I got an orginal Etcher

    Wormholes were first introduced to the public over a century ago in a book written by an Oxford mathematician. Perhaps realizing that adults might frown on the idea of multiply connected spaces, he wrote the book under a pseudonym and wrote it for children. His name was Charles Dodgson, his pseudonym was Lewis Carroll, and the book was Through The Looking Glass. ***8212; Michio Kaku

    Tokio: thank you and you’re welcome !

    Schiefer: glad it’s of some use to you and thank you for letting me know! Hey, that second Z was not intended, but you’re right; it’s there… weird… . On the blood color: good you mentioned, I need to recheck my images on a calibrated monitor, I’m making these on my laptop and never double checked them, the blood shouldn’t be that bright-it’s reasonably desaturated on my screen. Anyways, in the final image it will be more toned down. Thanks for commenting !

    Point: ain’t that a fact! !

    Spaceman: hey, man! I’m surprised it got delivered so fast! From what I can see it didn’t suffer to much damage in transport, hope you’ll give it a nice place in your home!Thanks for stopping by!

    Marsyas: thanks Geoff… it’s not my fault though; ZBrush caused it… why did I ever buy that soft… .And, to make things worse, here’s some more… .

    Hi Etcher! now you do too mnay updates
    i can't follow you!! I've so much work for my company and it's me who doesn't find time for ZB any more
    I like your work a lot as you know! but as i was watching your last illustration i couldn't help myself thinking that you can find a much more interesting composition...

    I hope you won't mind but i've drawn some dynamics line to show you that, for now, your image is too equal, too symetric. If you take care of your main composition lines, you'll see that your diagonals, horizontals are equally splitted. So even if we can clearly see the battle between the 2 characters, there's no real tension between them.
    you can also see that your skyline is practically in the middle and all main lines of composition cross in the middle of symmetrical way.
    I think that you should keep the dynamic composition line because that's you want to show. But you should take down your skyline. Because of this,your decor will be a little lower. His dynamic would therefore be more symmetrical. It will also avoid having the top of the castle, the moon and the head of your villain lined up. It would give again all its force to your demon.
    In purple you can see that these elements lined up are also symetrical to the hands of your boy, which are an important element of your composition. By changing the background everything will be fixed.
    Finally, if you look carefully, if you except the wings of your creature, your 2 characters have the same size. You should take the choice to make your creature bigger than the kid. By modifying that you'll have the possiblity to change the position of the creature's hand with the fire effect which is in the middle of your composition.

    In conclusion, for me, if you fix, the skyline, the background and the size of your demon everything will be awesome. PLUS, i think that you should put your camera from below so that you're composition will be more impressive.

    I don't know if i'm clear (sorry for my bad english...again..) if not, it will be a pleasure to make a quick sketch for you.
    But i think that the picture will be clear enough for you.

    Again hope you won't mind this intrusion in your work.
    your friend YONA

    Eof3D: thanks for the great comment and for dropping me a line Eugene! !

    TeckZ: Well thank u very much, I’ll try!

    Disco Stu: Thank you, Stu! !

    Calum5ZB: hey cal! Many thanks for the awesome comment man, means a lot coming from you ! Glad my posts can be of some use. Here’s some more.
    Moni-Poroni: Thank you! You shouldn’t have pushed me!!! !

    Yona: Hah, I think I know what you mean: when my dad first saw this sketch, he stared at it for a few minutes and said:”you made chaos…, you made organized chaos…”. But, no worries Cédric! This off-beat composition was an intentional experiment Wanted to make a symmetrical line composition and an asymmetrical light- and dark composition. Camera position is purposely placed to make the scene static and to work with next to no perspective (foreground-mid-back placed behind each other like flat sheets). Storywise: Axl is not fighting the Tenebrae in this scene, he’s accidently stumbling upon him-Tenebrae minding it’s own (gruesome) business. The linig-up of the tower-moon-creature head had to do with lettering/titles of some sort that needed to be added (will post that image later-it has the moon in a different position).But, I will not take this painting further than this, the final image will be done with the sculpted and posed characters. Hope you’ll have another look when the whole thing goes to 3d! I will invite you to my virtual set, so we can have some more composition fun! Many thanks for taking the time to comment (in depth comment) and to make the diagram! Cédric, hope you’ll soon have time to continue TTM! !
