First Av (WIP)

on: October 27, 2006, 11:50:39 am
Hi Guys

I thought I'd try an avatar for my first piece on the new forum. While I'm happy with what I've done, I'm a little disappointed as i was hoping to be able to finish this without the need for crits. But as always with most of my work, i get to a point where i find myself rushing and guessing to finish the job. So its time for some criticism, here is the pic:

x2 size
[edit: converted to gif]

I have a few things to highlight.
1. The hair is where I'm stuck (so no AA or anything around here). Perhaps I've gone overboard on the highlighting/shading? does the hair flow too far back?
2. I have a feeling his forehead is too short. . I've tried to cut/raise his head. It looks ok to me at the moment tho..
3. I've noticed i keep changing the way i AA my art and there are spots where i wasn't sure what i was doing exactly (especially around the ear).
4. I think the face needs some highlighting or another pallate. I was going to try to make one of those FAD avatars and used that pallate on the face. Perhaps its not adequate for this pic.

Any crits welcome.
Thanks guys.
