Fairly large jump in the WIP. :/
Anyhow, great work!
I don't think you stole something. I just said you need to give credit.
I do not think this should be entered into the challenge, or be qualified, it is a rip off of majesty.
EDIT: YanaySama "Alright, thanks pals :D Yea I make it too far with the dark colours ><" <-- you never made this palette, you stole it from the original image.
EDIT 2: [platypus] "There's a pretty big leap in your WIP. Great picture! Reminds me of Warcraft I and II. I'll give it a 4/5" - yeah... and it reminds ME of majesty
hmmm... do I sense something fishy? that image is from a game called "majesty". But you did this from scratch I hope? I have taken a screenshot from the game, the portrait is on the left side of the screenshot.
EDIT: I'm sure you did, but you just stole the palette.
EDIT 2: And yes I play a LOT of games.
I think you should keep working in this style. The lighting is great and the piece is much more realistic then most of your other work, so my opinion is that you're heading in the right direction.
