Soldier - Hope (15th Jul 10 at 11:46am UTC)
Had a break from designing for about 6 months, this was the first piece i've done since i installed PS again.

Now looking at it, the render looks slightly oversharpened, the bit on the right i think detracts from the piece, along with the blue wisps, i'll try fix it later when i got some time.

Very nice. You're right about the render being oversharpened, but its got nice effects, text and focal point. One thing I'd definitely try to improve is the light source. The light side is not facing the light source and there isn't really much of a light source. Otherwise, great job for your first pieace after a break.

Nice effects overall, but I find it hard to make out a focal point. It also seems like you have no lighting at all. You could kill two birds with one stone with the right lighting.

Thanks for the criticism, yeah i need to work on my lighting, but sometimes i overkill it and then overbrighten the piece and then i can't fix it, so i guess thats something i need to work on, i was so focused on getting depth into this piece that i didn't remember to spend enough time on other basics.
