I've been too much of a pussy to post any WIPs here until now, because I'm a sensitive little wuss kid and have critique-phobia. But this needs to be done, so I'm going to suck it up and post like everyone else. I'm not asking you to go easy on me, either, because I won't be doing myself any favors by ignoring problems. Polished crap is still crap.
Pretty much every element of this painting is far from finished, especially the anatomy of the boy. (Arms, abdominals, what have you.) But I tend to be a bad judge of my own work. My biggest problem is that I don't know if the legs are proportional-- I suspect they might be too short. I think another problem is that since the legs are pretty much just one smooth plane, it'll be hard to make them look like they have the same amount of detail as everything else. Any suggestions on how to handle that?
The theme of this painting is supposed to be futility, portrayed by a heavy rainfall keeping down fragile wings.
