So, I present to you the recent "long-build" for my Cyberpunk IP, an upgrade of the previous work Razor nights and bitter days by torture-device, with the technical tricks I've learned with The Operator by torture-device.

Virtually, a sum of technology and competence I've recently gained, and I'm sure the effect is quite visible. I'm establishing and fleshing out characters as I go further in the development of my skill - rendering, composition, use of Photoshop and layers.

Time-wise, I've gotten faster as well, due to more freedom in the application of skill, so naturally I'm quite very proud of this work. Though as it's natural for cyberpunk, the story is going to be noir-y, my goal is to deliver an 80's feel, though upgraded to modernity, and visually "bright", filled by light and color, not night and darkness. On that contradiction of genre and visuals is where I think my personal touch would lie and evolve into.

So, enjoy, comment and listen to a corresponding track:…

It's cyberpunk renaissance, bitches!

Fuck me I want that trench-coat.

You never fail to impress torture-device. What's your process?

Yes! Guided missiles gun? and rail rifle?

Since a regular helmet would leave fewer delicious details to draw, do they have some sort of retractable helmets and faceplates, that can be deployed from behind the back real quick?

Your level of detail is of course nice, but I would like to add to Warhound8's critique in that your lightsources are all over the place. The background has a shine here, a shine there. It is apparently daytime, yet we have no direction of sunlight. This is also what makes the characters so detached from the environment, they themselves have their own splashes of light in random places. So we have a background with inconsistent lighting and two characters with inconsistent lighting, making them both feel like they were plastered on each other.

This would all be resolved if there was an obvious lightsource and both bg and characters were responding correctly to it.

That said, I see where posters like warhound and Medikun are coming from.  Sometimes less is more.  Also I'd be careful about the tone when dealing with critiques; those guys critiques were very factual and I agree with them overall.  I may not have your level of technical depiction regards digital painting, but there are some compositional fundamentals lacking here and all it takes is an open mind and application of those to transcend yourself to a truly great level.

  Be modest.  Be respectful.  Real critiques are from people who, more than anything, WANT to see you get better because they see the skill is there, just needs more harnessing.
