"Lack of detail" seems to be your favourite phrase
If you still haven't figured it out, I am more of concept artist rather than realist. I've moved away from the overly detailed works, because... they don't work for me. I see no joy in sitting for hours and hours on the detail. And the detail will never reach perfection
On the contrary, I looked up your works. All I can say is "too much focus on detail". Sometimes the best way to judge an artwork is to step back few feets from the monitor. Please consider that
Also, I will create a progress comparison soon. So that you can see what I mean
If you're relating on that super high detailed davionx.deviantart.com/art/Pri… MESS that once started as commission, then you're right. This got definately too much of everything ^^ But I'm not a great fan of Speedpaint, all they got is mood, no detail. But well, works for some folks, so I won't complain. I'm always ready to learn a lesson from the masters.
