looks awesome like all your stuff! the only crit I can come up with is that the smoke maybe looks a bit too "solid". Keep up the great work monk:)

Ausleuchtung der Figuren und die Farben im Allgemeinen sind echt klasse geworden.
Hebt sich mal etwas ab von den typischen Cols hier. Schön find ich das du mit Painter arbeitest. :)
Weitermachen...

Wenn man mit umgehen kann! :D
Ich habs mal probiert aber konnte mich
nicht so recht damit anfreunden. Vielleicht
versuche ich es noch mal. Lohnen würde
es sich bestimmt.
Ich mag dieses Strukturkrams was du immer
in den cols benutzt. :)
