Kroko soldier 2013 version, Monkeylion by Daviddleonluis Kroko soldier 2013 version, Monkeylion by Daviddleonluis
Kroko Soldier ... ( Hope you notice any improvement/(Espero que note alguna mejoría )

This is the new version of  Kroko Soldier, someday i would like to tell my story, making a book with it, and i would like something with this kind of quality ( i wish someday i can find sponsor). This is one of the characters from MonkeyLion's story, i made him in 2012 but i think this one is a better representation about what i want in my future book.  Hope you like guys.

Esta es la nueva versión del Kroko Soldado, algún día me gustaría contar mi historia, hacer un libro con ella, y me gustaría algo con este tipo de calidad (ojalá algún día pueda encontrar patrocinador). Este es uno de los personajes de la historia de MonkeyLion, lo hice en 2012, pero creo que esta es una mejor representación de lo que quiero en mi futuro libro. Espero que les guste chicos.

The almost WW2 look of the helmet and pants are wonderful! The bend in the maw expands the expressive range greatly without diminishing the animalism. I can almost hear a cockney or other thuggish attitude coming from him. He's just dripping with character, and it has me very curious.

Of course, the painting technique is superb: color, contrast, the sense of movement in the background, not much I could add to your exquisite talents there.

What could be better is the attention to detail below the neck, especially the back slates. I can't tell if they're metal or organic, but in any case they lack detail. His weapon seems unfinished somehow, I'm honestly not sure of its material. The metal texture seems to betray your technique.

The bracers are a little uncanny, sort of ragged and too small get around the claws. It's hard to imagine how he gets them on. I know they're not a focus, but so much of him seems fleshed and thought out.

Small details, but I'm like that. I REALLY love this guy overall! ^^

Anatomy's not my strong suit, so for the "plates" I'll just say I like them. The shoulder plates seem a little off though. It's hard to visualize if they cover the muscle or if they're loose. But again, I'm no expert.

I'll just add that I normally don't do this kind of thing. I'm no pro, but this picture really made an impact with me. So I'm hopeful that my feedback has been useful to you. Take care, and good luck out there.

The skin texture definitely improved from the more "orc" like texture in the first version. But I have to say, the weapon seems a bit crude in design; I think he would be better off with a spiked club. It'd be more conventional, but arguably more practical than using a weapon that seems to be trying to be a hook, a bludgeon, and a mace all at once.

Yes, but its because he is an standard enemy, probably a big armies of this guys around the story, with a poor and crappy weapons.

I hate making generic comments, but I just love it. Such tension in the pose, like a crocodile about to strike. Great textures and color palette, very cool overall design concept.
