Since i plan on sticking around here for a while i decided to make an avatar aswell:



It's my own face as an april-fools-joker-mask  ;D 16 colours including transparent

I'm not going to post any photos, but i think the likeness is ok

C+C welcome, although i'm not sure if i'll be changing it much after this since i want to start animating it

I like it. All the usual techniques are done well, not much to critique on that area. Lightning is good (REFLECTED LIGHT YESS)! I would like to see more green hues in the grey part of the face though; just to give it that extra kick and contrast, don't have to go overboard. You already have one green shade in there.

Looking forward to seeing the animation. :o

Looks like the white/purple division gets off-center at the tip of the nose.
Otherwise awesome.

I'm not going to pretend this is a small task either; certainly none of us here can claim to have accomplished it.  it's the realm of masters.  still, it's what we all have to try for.

I just went over the colors he used in photoshop (i always do this to screw around and try to rethink what choices the artist made) and noticed one of the greys he used in the mask had a slight green hue. Colors like white, grey and black are hardly ever just that; most of the time they have a bias toward one color (unless you work in RGB and do perfect greys like 115,115,115 which is unwise imo)... Afterall, in-order to get these colors, you need to have a mixture of hues.

ps I KNOW ABOUT CMYK, DONT MAKE ME HURT YOU  :mean:

The highlight on the bottom bend of the red ribbon is a little low.
That's the only flaw I see in this at the moment.
