    Any tips on how to make it better?

    I was too lazy to photoshop the fire, so I just used ingame effects.

    Uh....you're asking for tips on something that you know you need to use if you want to make it better? "I want to drive my car better but I was too lazy to put my hands on the steering wheel so I used my leg. Anyone have tips?"

    Anyways, if you decide to use photoshop I can give you some tips. Send me a PM.

    Made the pose ingame, took a screenshot, uploaded it. No photoshopping.

    I mean something like constructive criticism. Like, could I have changed the scene a bit? Could I have posed the face better? etc

    I was referring to the actual effects used, not the method.
    Genuinely curious.

    Well you could have used photoshop.

    Anyways if you're going to be stubborn, the fire on his hand should be whiter to make it appear bright, try using two lights. One small white for his palm and one larger or/yel/red one to color the rest of him. Turn his torso a little more towards the camera, honestly it could have been perpendicular and look fine. Render your goddamned super DOF or don't use it at all, if somehow you did render you really need to tweak your settings. Otherwise your pose is really pretty bland, the fire effect is just underwhelming and there isn't much else to speak of.

    EDIT: Sorry, not the fire on his hand, the light from the fire.

    Oh, the fire was taken from a TF2 lamp. Simply spawn the lamp model (search Lamp in the spawn menu), and move the lamp. The fire will stay.

    Female bottom right needs surgery on her right shoulder. Lighting needs much improvement, angle is okay I suppose, posing is decent.

    That skin looks retarded, left fist should be turned palm facing in, guys eyes should just be forward otherwise he looks pretty derp. As well, he isn't really doing much for cover off to the side of whatever she's looking at, this is a hard angle to pull off and it looks nice but doesn't really make sense.

    It's very pixelated, i suppose you were doing some Photoshopping? I somehow managed to do this while making my picture here


    I guess you just have to be careful when using too much of those color filters or something?

    Actually a really cool setup here, the only problem is the lighting outside is a bit gross and it kinda kills it for me. Posing and composition actually seem pretty great from what I can tell.

    Hahaha, the first one's title! Those lens flares are fuck-awesome, first one the AS50 needs to be a helluvalot bigger, and it's a little odd stylistically, but shit boy, the second one is looking fuckin' swag, nice work. And don't worry about the crit, I'm just butthurt that you didn't like my lightning headhack shit hahaha.

    Still kind of looks like they've soiled themselves though, but eh, that's the original order model texture's fault

    It doesn't really look good on the shoulder, mainly because just like the upper arm the shoulder stretches stretching the texture and ending up looking like that:
