Awesome pic man! Think Gemmell would be proud! Want to have a crack at a pic myself some day when my skills have much improved!

well looking at the watcher pic the composition and idea is there and thats half the battle, if you want to improve a little hers some tips
*everything has a shade nothing should be white (but it can be pretty close)
*things get lighter the further away they are and darker the in the fore ground
*keep your directional light consistent to everything in the picture
I'm sure you would have found this stuff out anyway, but the best advice I can offer is to get a batch, 500 sheets of cheap printing paper from tescos and go to town on it, I will eat my own head if you haven't improved ten times by the time you finish it

Hey, wow, cheers for the tips man! I appreciate it! :D
I'll be taking your advice and getting some cheap paper and drawing drawing drawing!
I've been wondering how to shade and stuff like that so thanks very much for the tips. I'm fairly new to drawing to be honest, always been more of a writer, but I am keen to improve! Thanks for the kind words about the composition.
Thanks again!

It's great to see Deathwalker stalk the pages of DA. He has the 'what the hell are ya looking at' expression happenin. Such a shame there will be no more stories of Mr Gemell, he had such inspirational characters
