Ah, it's not actually a self portrait, sorry. I didn't use any refs at all, hence the reliance on a few stock features. It's probably going to be a part of a full 320x240 composition, so I don't think I'll be shrinking it. Also I agree regarding the contrast, but I only have one monitor and it's downright awful, so I think I will probably need some help with that sometime in the future.

Facepalm :P

Looking forward to a full composition ;D but you should really be taking your lighting cues from the enviroment if there's to be one.

I don't get this impression but you're obviously aware of the issue and I have to ask, why no reference? You've posted here looking for potential problems but finding a few applicable references to guide you would be trivial. At a high level of detail specific minutiae from photo reference that you wouldn't have considered otherwise can make a big difference in believability.

True, but I want to practice drawing from imagination anyways - most of my works from imagination look very samey so I want to practice... not doing that. The thing about taking the lighting from the environment does make sense (I usually work backwards like that) though I don't think the current lighting will give me any problems as it's pretty inoffensive as it is...

ISO tiles created for the ISO Underwater collaboration at PixelJoint. I'm really happy how these turned out. :)

Thank you Mathias. Would be cool if more pixel pushers join that collaboration.

Thanks man. If only making games was as easy as making mockups. ^^
