Almost there ^.^

In most respect its quite a good picture, a great idea and well executed.

Although the hair needs to be more defined. Think about the weight of the lines - thin, thick, narrow, wide etc because it seems like the darkest tones is the lineart for the eyes and the head/neck. So do the same sorta tone for the shadows in the hair, so it looks more refined. Plus the light reflecting off the hair is usually zig zagged slightly rather than a straight edge....but thats just typically speaking.

I have to disagree with the comment below by Hoboweasel, the mouth doesnt need to be any larger, but i would suggest have a slightly narrower shadow under the bottom lip. A nose wouldnt do that much difference either. It seems to work pretty well without. Well done, keep it up =D

Pff dont know what Gaiacarra is on about, far from 'underwhelming' Its really quite intriguing to me, what was the idea behind it? What were you trying to show? Its an unusual image and one that strikes me as some what unique ^.^

LaserKarl responds:

Thank you.

I started this a while back after some time of heavy drinking. I was tierd of alcohol, and tierd of hangovers. While having a headache i one morning started this and tried to get my thoughts on the matter into a picture.

Nice stuff!

This is outstanding in more ways than one ;)

Nice use of crosshatching for the textured clothes and the lighting is superb. Did you use reference or is this stuff all from memory =P

ItoSaithWebb responds:

I did use references but only loose ones and that is usually how I like to work.

Wow thats really good, i like the use of colours in this. Ive always found green and brown looks so cool together even though theres technically no complimentary colour for brown.

Can i ask what the intention was behind this picture, what were you trying to convey...if anything =/

Was this in Corel Painter? I really like the textures and the way you coloured it in. One that would seem harder to do in PS. Id like to see more like this tbh.

Done in Artrage 2, really cool program :)
