Post by Attila »

Aggrevated by the lack of level 3 orc crossbowman, I, in my ever present quest to learn how to draw, made one. :twisted: the crossbow looks alittle odd though

Try having a more contrasted crossbow, get rid of the black outline and make it more contrasted.

His waist is as small as an insect's thorax. How about some color and a side-by-side comparison with L1 and L2? I commend your efforts.

Looks good. Now, his crossbow looks like a bladed weapon. Don't know what to suggest.

In left hand it is sword + something oa crossbow? If crossbow then where is bowstring? If this weapon in his left hand will be easier to recognize, this picture IMO will be great. Now it's only good :)

Yeah, the bowstring has to be off-white, not black.

P.S.: Give him the Warrior's left-hand sword!

I don't know, I don't think there's much of a mecessity in the game for advanced crappy throw away archers.
