[C+C] Simple Trump Sprite, Looking For Critique (WIP)

on: September 30, 2016, 09:14:14 pm
Hey guys,
I'm currently working on a short project, and am trying to make a Trump sprite. I think it looks alright, except for the hair. Perhaps the tie and white shirt could also use some work. I picked the black border as a stylistic choice.
Please critique this sprite in any way you can :D

I think if the hairline wasn't perfectly horizontal, it would look a little better. Also, isn't the Donald's hair more orange than yellow?

How about this? I found it a little difficult to break up the hairline.

How about making it a gentle curve, something like this?

Originally I made the part over his forehead be the lighter hair colour, but it didn't stand out well against the skin colour, and I think the shadow makes it look more like it sticks out forward, which it does.

I also edited the hair colours a little but I'm not sure what to suggest with those, really.

I think the colors are better, but the shadow on the brow looks... off. It doesn't look like a shadow to me.
Thanks for the help though :D
