I'm not a painter so I'm definitely not the best person to be talking about these things but, just in case this helps.

In the sphere painting you aren't accounting for the light bounced off of the ball back into the ground plane, which would be especially noticeable in the cast shadow area, you have the gradient for the general occlusion shadow but it should be more defined than that, also since the top plane of the sphere is much brighter than the top plane of the ground I'm assuming they have a different local value(different materials), in that case you should be able to see the contrast between the parts of the sphere that reflect the ground and the ones that reflect the walls.

You should even see a very subtle reflection of the cast shadow on the ball itself

I also assumed there was some extra light coming downwards, from either a sky, secondary ceiling light, or just a ceiling brighter than the table/ground plane

here's kind of a replication done in blender (a lot of things are different, I made the ground a lot more reflective, but hopefully it still makes sense), you can see how the sphere reflects on the ground plane.

ignore that specular in the shadow area, that's from the lightsource reflecting off of the ground

I didn't calculate everythin super correctly, reflections on spheres are a pain, but yeah, maaaaybe this helped ? maybe not.

EDIT, fixed it a tiny bit, but yeah, mine is still very sloppy

Just went back through a couple of pages and it's great to see all your studies and character concepts—and really like your color choices.

Keep it up

Lovely stuff Shin :).

I particularly like the first piece - the cloudy maelstrom background looks great!

On the third piece (the lady with the scythe) her left leg looks a little short to me - something to watch out for. Maybe your perspective work is a bit off here - I find sketching in a quick horizon-line and perspective grid really helps with that stuff.

Keep posting dude!

This dark sun project looks quite interesting, lovin the character design+portraits. Only small gripe I have is the way the blue haired girl is gripping that sword, I'd probably get a mirror/google for reference. I'd also include the character names in the image somewhere. Other than that top notch work.

Man, the last post and this whole last page of this sketchbook is so inspiring!
(and even a little bit discouraging, but thats my problem; at the same time encouraging to see whats possible.)
Very very inspiring!

Thank you so much ! :D
The project is also a means to push myself to do stuff I don't usually dare to so hopefully I'll improve them.
Hands yes... hands, what to say about them thats not said yet~ :V

Small update, just trying out armor design. I find it difficult to keep my patience while rendering and also the smooth transition between colors. Still, I'll keep trying !

Been a few years since I saw your sketchbook! Such amazing progress, looking so pro : ) I totally get you about rendering & patience, I think you went plenty far enough though, it looks sophisticated enough without being overworked. Maybe those red transitions around the shadow shapes are a bit too strong? Supposed to be subsurface scattering type of thing? It's too weak to be purposefully stylised transitions, and too strong to be realistic skin. Whatever tho! the image still looks 100% awesome.

Maybe more of the flame glow on the skin and a few cast shadows from the armour to really sell those flames, but yea it totally works as it is : )
