Don't be discouraged, I think it looks brilliant. Nothing is wrong with the painting IMO.

Hi Serkan, if you accept, I tell you what in my opinion is wrong in your job 1 Clothing glossy finish. Clothes are not glossy! I don'know if you use oil or acrilyc colours. If you use oils, glossy is a problem, but one solution is put the figure to dry under a bulb. Acrilyc colours (Vallejo or Andrea) generally have a mat finish, but otherwise you can add a little bit fo Tamiya Flat base X-21(a point brush!!). 2 Tones. In my opinion you must emphasize tones and shadings on your figure. Expecially on clothes. The green tunic is too flat. The lower part must be darker than the higher part: the maximum light is over the shoulders.. And the folds (on tunic and trousers ) must been emphasize too: when I paint clothes i give at least 4 or 5 lighting coats and 4 or 5 shading coats. The crossbow wood and leather parts are good!! I hope you accept my criticism Good job Tommaso
