This is actually very, very fantastic for you being in a learning phaseXD (Not that I didn't expect as much, I don't think most skyrim fanartists could do anything amateur) the colors and shading are perfect, the background is near flawless, and any lines you have look wonderful. It seems as if you are adjusting well, m'lady.:3

I'd wish I could give you advice, but digital painting is something I find extremely hard. Lineart is a demanding lover, and it slips its tentacles everywhere.

I like the dramatic light/dark setting. And his eyes look nice. :)
(But I still see a little bit of line-art going on... around the mouth) *shot*
And the chin seems a bit off with the lighting. It makes it look a little too thin.

I know you're learning. And it's difficult to paint faces and get the shapes right. But that's why I point it out.... trying to help... *fails at giving good advice* OTL
I also realize you don't have a pc and can't take a crapload of good screenshots to use as refs.

It doesn't look bad though. :D

Loving that deep shadows/candle light effect! And how silky his hair looks! As for expression, I think you captured it perfectly :D

Vingalmo and Orthjolf keep things interesting in the castle no doubt....yes comments before me gave accurate criticisms but hey its a new medium for you looks great other wise:)

Very wonderful. Do keep at it. His chin does seem a little off, but again, you are practicing a new medium. I do like the shadowing a lot as well. I would suggest not using black on his mouth, though. It makes them stick out too much and detaches them from his face. Otherwise, very lovely.

Thank you! It'll take me awhile to learn how the light/shadows play across the anatomy of the figure and etc ... Line drawing is more my strong point, so this medium will take me awhile to get used to. Thanks for the feedback.
