... I like how the guy on the right looks like he's pointing something to the guy in front of him, who is in the process of stabbing him. And the three guys in the center look like they're chatting. Apart from the fact that those five don't appear to be fighting very enthusiastically, it's a nice piece with a balanced composition. I also like the sky and castle walls a lot, they look like in peaceful times they can be very scenic.
Thanks! Ye, now that I had some time distancing myself from it i think what might be its major flaw is how static it all looks. Some motion-blur and dirt/blood flying might do the trick And the guy with his guard down does look a bit out of place in the middle of the fighting, I'll need to do something about him as well
It's good to know when to stop before one eventually ruin a promising piece^^ As for this one - you came up with exquisitely made whole bunch ofcharacters, however that three man circle in front of the right horseman look bit static, but what do I know^^. As for that something making you think it's not finished - I think it's the lack of filth and blood and dust in the lower half of the picture resulting in the footsoldiers looking kind of new and shiney, despite being in heat of battle "eating dust from the horse hooves" and there I must say, that as for me the upper half with cavalry and the archers and that sky is perfect!
Haha ye, I drew many of the characters separately, then threw them in where there was room. I had to flip some to make it work. But now that you said it I realized I should probably flip the whole canvas. Thanks
A truly stunning piece of art! Even though you say it is not yet finished, I have to applaud you for this wonderful piece!
There is so much going on at the same time, and in just this one picture you've given me whole battlefield - maby even a whole story! The expressions on their faces, the armor-detail, the tower in the backgroun and the calm blue skie~
There is so much I could have added in this comment, but I cannot find the words I want. So I'll sum it up to this;
