Hey @Miguel Nieto, nice work! I’m catching up with this a little late, but it caught my eye and, since you asked for feedback, I felt I could share my take too. Overall, I love the color choices and how you’re conveying the reflectivity of the armor’s metal. Just great! I’ve read the previous comments and, mostly, I agree with the suggestions Christopher has given. Also, I’m curious about what is this study - is it personal work, a course’s assignment or just some free practice? I’d love to know more about its context, if you’d like to share, of course. Best regards!

I absolutely love the brush work, the selection of a square brush for those highlights worked really well. I don’t know if it is intentional, but the triangular shape of the water bag is very bossy for me, my eye is immediately drawn to that shape, and locks there. Then I look at the face, where it looks like the water is going into his nose. Maybe reduce the chin strap, and lower the hand so the water is more clearly aligned with the mouth. The disc shape on the right shoulder is larger than the disk shapes on the left shoulder. I think it should be smaller, as is it feels like it is breaking the perspective. The leather strap on the water bag is fabulous. I absolutely love the graceful swoop of that line. But the way the shadows are placed make it look like the strap inverts. Thinking of that line like a letter U, the left leg should be closer to the viewer, and the right leg should be further. At the top, this appears correct. But at the bottom, it looks like the left leg is suddenly further from the viewer than the right leg. I think it’s the shadow at the bottom of the loop that’s doing it. Finally, that nose - wow. I love the way the light hits it, and the shape of the bridge. The tone you chose for the side of the nose is perfect. I really genuinely like this, it tells a story, and is very easy to read, but it’s simultaneously packed with intricacy and painterly details that make me want to keep looking, hunting for more. Really well done

Like Gannon said the shape design is great. There is some confusion about the structure of the torso. The arm closest to the viewer seems a bit too far forward. I wouldn't think you could see both the back and the front of the torso so much. Also the disc elements that are on the shoulders of the knight seem to be off a bit. The one closest to the viewer is smaller than the one further away. Some changes there would help the depth. All the colors look great and I enjoy the simplicity of the brushwork as well. From here it would be great to see more detail in the face and armor as it moves away from the torso. Great job!

Thanks, I was more focused on the painting than in the perspective, I will try to improve it the next time
