Please note I did not actually draw the little demon guy. I shaded and coloured him from a black and white line drawing. This was done for a personal friend, and for practice with the wacom/airbrushing. Doing the tongue was a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, I'm still not completely satisfied with it :/

Demon guy in splash page

PS: The original colour one is how I originally coloured him, the shaded version on the main part is hue/saturation/brightness changes.

That's nice illumina, but I think it is a little bit plane. Try using darker and lighter colours for shadows and highlights respectively. I believe this will give more volume to the "little demon guy". I mean, it looks more like a mask than a head. I also think skin looks too pale/desaturated, but maybe it's just me.

It's nice to see something different. Since I registered I have seen many logos and websites, but no brushed works or photo editions. Is that photoshop?

Nice work!! but i agree with blake for the too plane effect and maybe the tongue is too red for the color of the skin

Hmm... that's ok, but you could try working in gray scales (or desaturated scales) in skin to give more volume to the head, and give color only to tongue and eyes. Eyes have low saturation and do no atract attention as the tongue does.

It looks nice anyway.

Hello illumina!
Very groovy work! I viewed your portfolio. Great stuff! I like your style.
'Demon guy in splash page' is effective because all the elements are speaking the same.
Nice

nice airbrushing, it looks very good.
i think you should edit it a bit though, maybe make it stand out more. it looks too bland, spice it up! use a brighter shade of red, throw maybe a blood element in it? not sure, get more creative :) don't make it busy, just do something to make things stand out a bit more.
other than that, i love how it all relates and everything meshes overall, well done. the lighting is also done very well.
