Xeno, This is one of the best digital paintings on my pencils that I have seen you deliver, imho. You have captured the essence of lighting and applied wonderful tones and highlights.

Suggestions for how I would seek improvements are as follows:

1. Expand your color pallet out a little bit in some things and strategically reduce some coloration usage on others. Examples: truly paint the pouches brown,then add lighting with tan browns and dark browns for shadows on the pouches. Example on reduction - The blue highlight lights. Reduce the bright bluish coloration that you are using the same on for actual lamps and lighting. Highlights and low level lamp values should be different. I would actually paint the lamps based on automobile headlights references and colors to make them appear more like lights and lamps.

2. If you decide to drop this image into a setting, be sure to place primary and refractive lighting from the ground onto the reflective textures of the armor to capture some placement and realism.

Outside of these suggestions, I think you have done a Wonderful job, please take a bow and keep up the awesome work!

Cheers!!!

Well, the way some of us see it, the lady on the back will prove to be a sacrificial shield as the pilot runs off once the Crimson Marauder bites down and makes the pilot's load a lot lighter, sigh.... 

BTW, use to play Rifts? Come on back in, the water is fine, XD
