"Now, i'll read more deeply into your soul... You seem to like Pokemon X and Y, don't you?"  

okay, i think i am getting better at lighting in general ^^ also, psycho mantis is f*cking RADICAL! X3 and kinda creepy and terrifying o.o

i tried out a couple tricks i thought of for doing the lighting, and it's paying off, since this looks WAY better and more tone-setting than previous pictures :D and those blades and gas mask... mmm i love how they turned out ^^ hell, this whole picture looks awesome to me :D i can totally see improvement C: now onto the next picture C: im drawing braixen rocking out on a guitar :3

Firstly, This concept is amazing, I know Metal Gear Pokemon has been around since Gen 5 was announced with things like Solid Snivy and stuff, but this one is pretty cool an original, Kudos,

I like the art choice you picked for this, It fits both the Character of Psycho Mantis and Scyther rather nicely, It is rather gritty though, Which is both a Positive and negative, Positive in the way is as it fits the theme but negative as it comes off as a little hard to make out, but it isn't that big of an issue,

The detail on the wings and scythes are also a neat touch, Making it look more insect like, The black streaks also help add depth to the latex too,

Finally, The lighting is a bit hit and miss, I see what you was trying to do, keeping part s in the shadows, but the flare from the light source kinda undermines that by being too powerful on the shadows, to avoid this, try blurring the flare into the shadows to give a nice dark impact,

Thats about it, Its a rather cool looking picture over all, Keep up deh good work,

This is good. I like psychos. I think the scythes could've been cooler and darker. maybe blood? Oh well. This is still amazing. Shading AWESOME. Texture AWESOME. Overall EPIC. Bravo. Standing ovation. this is so amazing I just wanna wish it were either real or a movie. The background is amazing. it has delicate detail and yet haunted and mysterious. this is one of the best piecies of art i've seen. Beauty in the the gory visions of this mass murderer. Fantastic. Keep up the fantastic work my friend. Ill be checking in soon to see all of your new work. Fantastic.
