    Rusty as fuck. V for Vendetta.

    So I dusted off PS after about 1 1/2 years of not creating anything, and this is the result.
    Not even close to being my best work, but meh.

    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    And mine xD

    Always coming evermore through the darkness i adore
    Never slowing never waning
    Always chasing always preying
    Upon those who doth have power
    those whose minds are strong
    Never again shall it rest,
    for it has tasted fear

    It was hard working with this shitty render.
    Poorly cut and cartoony:

    If you must use a badly cut render, don't blur the choppy edges. It might be harder to do in a lot of cases, but with this particular one, you could actually use a black or dark gray and pentool over them so they're smooth.

    That angled strokes background.... dayum, not good. I suggest you add like a dust and a different floor, and maybe some better shadowing imo. payattention to the colors, in this case the different tones of black and white, because some parts of the render almost merge as one, hard to identify, like the border of the hat and the cape (it is already hard with the stock render, but now, its almost impossible.

    I actually did pentool to fix a few of the edges, as well manually repairing spots with a brush. The spots of heavier blur were to indicate motion and distortion, especially on the upper regions of the cape. I do know what you're saying though, and I usually do as such to repair shoddy renders.

    It's rain.
    The trajectory of the rain is even adjusted and contoured accordingly to realism, i.e the left leg and upper bounds of the cape.

    In regards to the shadowing, a lot has already been done. Areas directed toward the light source are slightly brighter and have directional highlights, and areas away do not, and are slightly darker.

    The entire idea behind the piece was a darkened silhouette, so small features and borders are of secondary importance. The focal point is not really the figure in itself, but the face, placed accordingly with the Rule of Thirds, emerging from the dark and blurry background.

    Ok, perhaps the lack of a floor made it look like worse for me.
    I seriously need to train Gfxing, pretty much everyone can make a decent piece, I must be the only one who makes shitty gfx here

    Two points, actually. One being that everyone here can make something decent, two being that you're the only one who makes "shitty gfx".

    I am trying. But when I compare to other ppl, I think I have a long way to go, and I dedicate great part of my time trying to improve.
