Random mecha sketches to practice light/shadow hard/soft edges

Krita 4.3.0
touch pen on tablet notebook

In this sketch, my technical goal is to better use soft/hard edges to describe grayscale/values. The concept premise is: that it is some kind of hard surface mecha creature, the constrain: it controls fire.

Feedbacks are more than welcome, thx in advance!
Cheers!!

It would be wrong to start with a critic keep posting so we can determine if you got your priority right first but you will always have the last say.

the button near the reply button... if that not what your already doing,Also interesting approch to describing form with strip of value but strip generally only serve to describe hard edge surface.Blending is preferable for surface that tend to have gradation(meaning there a subtile plane change going away or toward the light) .It still a viable approch because you can still blending it anways but it doesn't give the viewer the right visual information if you were not to blending where there is suppose to be blending.

Hey, guys! Tonight I got something really really in progress… right now I'm on Krita 4.3.0 bashing an old 1960's poster with the sketches I doodle in the afternoon...

Don’t even know how far from finished it might be right now.

I think so far there a leak of clarity in your direction.Your almost working at an abstract level it hard to tell what would make a good critic.Do you see yourself as an experimental artist?What push you to do art what kind of subject you want to capture?Do you have any finish piece?

I agree, it was at abstract level, so much I went back to my desktop try something different:
