Nicely done! I would have to agree that his body seems a bit thin, but I do like the skull-like face, it would look cool with more teeth possibly, the legs have a sort of scale look, maybe you should add those shapes to the rest of its body next time? Just a suggestion.
Oh, Fire is indeed hard to draw, it takes allot of practice, best to copy real fire to get used to how it looks. Must be cool doing commissions for this company you mention. ^^
Yeah, I changed some things now. It should look better now. I wanted to give him a sort of snake-like look, that's why he has only four teeth. Thanks for giving a criticism!
Yes, fire is somehow like a transparent, lively creature- it's sooo hard to draw I tried to improve the firecircles a little bit, though. Yeah, it's cool! It's my very first money that I earned thanks to my art It is not that good paid though (25$ for each picture), but for me it's great doing something like that! I also start to do some new stuff thanks to that.
Ah, I see, no problem! The fire looks much better now! btw ^^
Its like a living constantly changing thing, I agree. Yeah the job may not pay well, but at least you are gaining valuable experience and doing what you love to do! money is no issue when your gaining valuable skills, great to hear that you are gaining new opportunities.
That's mostly the reason why I agreed to take do some commissions for them. I also thought that I might have a better chance to get a full time job around here, when I already have sold some of my art and already worked in commissions...
It looks... odd. Maybe because the jaw is out of place a little on its right side. Also the odd semi-circles should be better. What are they? I can't even tell. You should revise it so they look more like whatever they were supposed to be. Maybe turn it into fire. Fire would suit this thing very well. The body and pose isn't doing much for me either, maybe fill out the chest a bit. It looks too thin. Muscle it up. Plus it looks unbalanced. Make the legs further apart.
