A Knight by Narandel A Knight by Narandel
Hello everyone, decided to paint a character instead of my usual environment stuff. Super fun to work on character's since they are kinda hard for me as compared to painting environments. Hope you guys like it though. Cheers!

Nice painting. But as always, I'll be the first to constructively criticise it ;)

I've got three main gripes with this piece. The first being the leg armour. It doesn't look good, to be honest. Seems like you did the rest of the character first and when you got to the legs you just wanted to finish the piece as soon as possible. The plating on the legs isn't consistent and it doesn't make sense for the plates to be arranged like that. Quite hard to explain.

Second thing is that the forearms look too long. Reason being is that you've accidentally merged the palm and the forearm together, resulting in a weird limb that seemingly has the fingers extend straight from the wrist.

The third thing is minor but worth mentioning. Why the ringmail texture for the armour? Generally armour was worn over the ringmail, but it was never transparent, the plates being solid pieces of metal. Maybe it was a design decision, but I find it weird to look at.

Thank you very much for the critique :) I'm still learning how to design character's better so your comments are well taken and noted!
