wow this is my favorite one of yours! the highlights and shadows on the armor is really good and i love the overall composition how it draws you in. wonderful coloring and textures. the background is really nice especially with the addition of the juggling man!

I think you did very well on this, captured the spirit of the tournament Wink

The only thing I can find wrong is the placing, you put him on the wrong side of the lists.

This is great. On the topic of the horses's hind legs, it seems as though they're a little small, but that's the impression you can get with such dynamic scenes. Even the Knight's leg looks out of proportion somewhat but that's not the case either. Jason, I'm a beginner at digital art using photoshop (very keen, artistic but not computer literate) and I would be grateful for any tips about your style of work you can send me. Step by step tutorials? Anything. Laughing out loud - thanks! Ok I'm done dreaming now.

It was for a book cover, done for Mystic Eye games. The book was titled "Tournaments, Fairs & Taverns." or somthing like that Wink

A lot of dynamic action and power in this one. Was it for an assignment or practice? I agree with the previous crits re: perspective (sometimes you need to force these things to look more "real"), but the colors are outstanding!

I really like this. The textures and stuff are great, and that's a difficult, at best, pose/angle to capture. It seems you've neglected the perspective on the horse's hind legs though; they should probably be a bit smaller. And maybe if there were some hoofprints in the ground. Yeah.. then it would be perfect. Smile (as far as I'm concerned, anyway.)

Art at its best.
