A very nice display of talents, mainly with how well you've approached the colouring. Though not your design you do show a general knack for applying life to a design through means of colour and lighting. The selection of hues chosen for Ryu are good and the balance of lighting to create the 3d of this design is strong. What you show is excellent and a strong hand within this field.
The only small negative part around this design is how it feels too soft. The use of the brush is good, but it could do with some heavier line work or texturing to allow select areas to stand out more. Also think about working more with effects along side widen the brush selection for this has potentials.
Hey thanks, I'm trying. I will be putting out the 3 issues of Angel Savior then I'm going back to do my other title Super Bounty J1. Once I work on that for a good while I'm going to come back and put out the "retelling" of Angel Savior.
