Adventure RPG by GreyRadian Adventure RPG by GreyRadian
Just uploading oldish works to fill in my inactiveness gap ^^;
This was a painting I created for EB Game's (GameStop Australia) cover design contest for their pre-owned games. I entered the Adventure/RPG category. I'd appreciate some critique please! I know my rendering especially for the armour, is far from perfect, but I just have no idea DX

I tried to mix both styles in Adventure games and RPG since they're both very different games, so hoping it's general enough to be able to represent for games like both Super Mario or Final Fantasy? lol idk.

But thanks to all my friends I managed to win the contest so now they're using it :D

I love the loose quality of your strokes and how the blue-orange color palette is working on the background. You can add more details to the cape and armor to contrast more in terms of focus with the background :)

Overall I think you achieved a nice piece here, I would only advise you to watch your composition and try to avoid putting things on dead center of the picture. This will make your piece look rather flat instead of tridimensional. Also, if you want to push the depth of your piece, you can add some more silhouettes of figures to help push the send of scale in this piece.

Last but not least, it`s very successful, congratulations!!

I do like this piece, but when I critique I go all out and look to how it could be better, this is actually the first critique I've done here I think.

Along the bottom it seems very plain to me. It might be the clechet "One knight stands alone against the impending dragon of doom in the sky" or it's just my nitpicking about how nothing keeps my eyes to the piece. My eye is lead directly downwards and off the piece, There's a distinct X mark that leads to the knight and off the piece, and the sword and cape lead it furthur downwards, nothing brings it back towards the Dragon or the castle to keep the eyes locked on the piece. Perhaps a fix could be foreground elements pointed upwards, like spears of the dead soldiers whom have tried to best the dragon before this brave knight, or render some middleground mountain pieces that point towards the dragon.

It's not very original mind you, but it does do it's job for the contest that it's been submitted to. It's a standard idea, knight against dragon. People have seen it a thousand times and it totally screams Fantasy and RPG to people. Well done.

Your Technique is what I love seeing from you the most, it's an inspiration to me and to many others. Your color pallet works harmoniously and the flash of red in the cape immediately centers on the subject. The armor is especially nice too, this knight has clearly been through quite a bit of fights, well done!

I wouldn't say it has very much Impact, but to me Impact and Originality work together in a way, the only difference is the composition supports the Impact.

I notice that this particular piece is very different than many others of yours, it's very desaturated and stands out in your gallery. A very interesting rout to go, and it leaves me to say I'm excited to see more from you! :)
