Edit: I've edited the dithering on his face. I was wondering whether to make the penumbra on his face smaller, since the torch's light source is pretty small.
I've also re-done a bit of his torso area and arm + his orther eye lid thing.

Description: Just a creature, scared by a dropped torch (or, flash-light to you Americans, lol) on a rainy night.
I previously had worked on a lense flare for the torch, with nice hexagons extending towards the top-right. I got rid of that though, because the actual rays, at the torch, spoiled the feel of the piece.

Very nice! I love the subtle reflection on the floor. A small point but it does make a big difference.

infractus (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/14/2007 13:26

this almost looks as tho its CGI, the dithering, tho, kind of stops it from lookin like that tho. Not sure if thats a good or bad thing

Nevanda (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/17/2006 06:13
Wo ho !  i like your style

7even (Level 9 T-rex) @ 3/17/2006 06:10
I'm out of words. The lightning concept is great, just as the reflection on the ground. But I do have to agree that the dithering on his have seems out of style.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/16/2006 21:05
I like this composition. I see what you mean about the arm, I would try a bigger more dramatic shadow on this chest rather than the small one you've got now. I do not think the dithering angle works with the entire compostion being circles, it stops the flow, perhaps a pattern will add the right look/feel. This same pattern would be great on the bkg fade too, as if you're looking in from outside through a wet window pane. The colors are perfect, don't mess with them.....I stop now

Quar (Level 4 Murderer) @ 3/16/2006 16:03
Awesome! I see nothing wrong with this.

Animmaniac (Level 4 Murderer) @ 3/16/2006 14:03
Wow, love the lighting effects and reflections. But the shade on his head and left eye are weird. I think you should also shade the left arm a little bit.

Overall, good demostrantion of lighting skills.

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 3/16/2006 13:37
Wonderful.  This is such an interesting and creative piece of work.  I don't see anything wrong with the dithering on his head.

Stitchy (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 3/16/2006 13:22
Great lighting. I especially like the little dust specks you can see in the light beam. xD

alpix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2006 08:17

Angel (Level 5 Soldier) @ 3/16/2006 07:59

BlackEye (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/16/2006 06:42
