1. I feel you captured the kind of armor/clothing of dark sun, I feel it's a bit hard to do if you're used to doing standard fantasy stuff.
2. I love your layout. Very dynamic. Your color scheme is also very appropriate without being monotonous (something which I find some artists tend to do with desert-themed drawings).
3. your shading. cross-hatching. Wow. Those ink lines give your illustration an almost woodcut quality. VERY nice.

thanks for sharing your wonderful artwork, you give amateurs like me something to aspire to :)

Tight! I really like the strong shadows and many details that draw your eye around. The brows are rich,warm and gorgeous. It could have easily been too drab ,but it works! :)

I thought color would diminish this b & w piece, but you've actually enhanced it. I applaud you for mastering the trifecta (pencil, ink, color) of our comic art medium. Bravo!
