    The spear tip seems to go off on a bit of an angle, pointing more upwards than the bottom half would suggest it should

    i have NO idea about colour, but his torso seems a bit off anatomy-wise

    it looks as if the right-hand side of his torso belongs to a huge barrel-chested dude, and the left hand side is from somebody with a much a leaner frame

    at the moment it kind of looks like he has a massive tumour under his right arm or something

    His belt doesn't curve around his body, most noticeable on his right hand side

    As for painting, I'd say a adding shade and light in equal quantities with smooth transitions

    What? Why?

    Is this for a commission and has the client already ok'ed it? That's the only situation where i would say...ok i guess you can't change it.

    But if this is you just being lazy, that's another story.

    The better question is WHY are you coloring it in a specific way? Think about the mood and emotion you want the piece to convey to the viewer. This will determine how you color it, the hues you use, etc.

    Also, I would suggest adding a background. I'm guessing you're going for more of a pin-up piece, but backgrounds adds context to the piece.

    well, i inked this with a pen, so to change it would be a huge process or rescanning and fixing all the existing mistakes again plus the new ones... maybe ill do it.
