After being inspired by another digital artist on this forum I've been trying to get back into digital painting. So I went back to basics, practicing my light and shadow values with this little Vendetta sketch.

Anyway, if you have any thoughts on how I can improve please let me know.

Impressive! I really like the lighting. One thing I would suggest is going even darker in some areas. I'm learning not be afraid of going too dark (or too light) and being able to push my value ranges. I find the curves tool to be extremely useful for this.

Yeah, my value ranges are definitely something I need to work on, I'll keep that in mind. Thanks for the input, man.
