this may be due to lighting/ mood giving the feeling of disconnection with what you may have seen in your imagination. this emotion ive found is often present at the start and if lost i recall it with my eyes closed not logically with the mind if that makes sense. if that does not work ive found that that emotion then is on the other side of the fence of adding lighting that coveys the mood i was going for that i just give a name to i.e dramatic / mysterious / sad . if you dont mind i can do a slight digital overpaint with some lighting on it.

Hi Jeremy, welcome to the new Proko site! I've been a long time fan of fantasy IPs and its definitely a goal of mine to do card illustration for Magic the Gathering, or do concept work for either Dungeons and Dragons or for Magic. I've been working over the past several years to try to polish my painting technique, and get my work to a style and level of finish that would match what you would find in those previously mentioned IPs. I'm curious if you think my work would fall in line with what WoTC is looking for. Additionally, what do you think is the best way to actually get your portfolio considered for a company that big? I imagine that they get hundreds of portfolios coming in every day, and my work would just get lost by going through the regular application on their site. Thanks for doing this!

Hi i would recommend creating a large image with your art on the one side and your inspiration/aspiration WoTC art on the other side. could also try a single image surrounded by popular WoTC art and see in what way your image stands out as different. might also make it easier for others to help you towards your goals.

I am not the best with faces although i would say what jumps out at me is the neck collar area having a lot of contrast and sharp edges pulling focus away from the face. Adding some shade and softer edges towards the bottom of the collar should help some to keep the viewer looking at the focal area. hop that helps <3
