I feel like something finally clicked today. Did these 2 in half an hour per piece. Somehow it's clearer now when to use sharp edges and soft edges. I still end up neglecting basic shapes and go into detail right away. So gotta try to start off with putting down the shapes first.
I'm not happy with the composition because it's a bit chaotic and the diagonal effect didn't really work. But I'm really happy with the lighting and the action poses.
