The light is too focused on the crotch/stomach area, try posing it further away so it shines on the whole model.

He does look a little unnaturally bright compared to his surroundings, especially around his stomach like RoR said. Lowering the intensity and moving it a bit away should help.


Also, look up three point lighting. It'll help take care of shadows like the one his left hand is casting.


oh right I'm an idiot

also, if you want to have brighter, focused light, it should be coming from a place that seems reasonable. It seems out of place that a light is shining up at him from, for what the viewer can tell, just a random spot on the floor

For a first time SFM poster it looks quite decent actually. But try to focus the light more on the overall picture, not on the stomach (it appears so) only.

With your "suggestion" up, it's now going to be impossible to buy for a reasonable price. Better watch your ass, lapdog. You are now being hunted.
