Not exactly a doodle, but I'm not looking for hardcore critique as typical of a new thread. It's something I started working on today as an entry for the April Fool's weekly challenge (this weeks' challenge is a 'catch-up' challenge with all previous challenges as fair game) at PJ, but I think it stands on its own by now. Initially inspired by some of Helm's work.

That looks great, Khris. Quite like how you did the lips, and I like the color choices. :y: Tres cool.

Khris that's excellent, I can see the inspiration in the colours.

Right now your at 11 colors, but i think you might be better if you added a few more and made it 16 or something.  also, your palette is very unbalenced lumnanace wise, and i think that by evening it out some, you might also be able to add some volume to it.

edit:  palette edits.

edit x 2: just noticed your reference picture.  i think you could do with some working on the facial structure (what is that random purple block in on the bottom of his cheek?

Hm... thanks for that, eck! I'd like to say that I also take notice of the face issues and have already tweaked it a bit since this one (chin was too far out, for example).

As far as colors go, I'll say for now that I was planning on upping it to 16 whenever I start doing final touches. On the color choices themselves, there's nothing I can really say. It's a mixture of instinct and ritualistic decision-making on my part. I'll take the palette you've created for a test run and see how I like it, though! I've been told about having issues with contrasting colors before, so you're definitely not the first.

No problem!  As strange as it sounds, I think I taught myself something while examining your work  :lol:

Once I met Helm and he told me that this is a bad idea. Make the palette from the beginning, tweak it constantly while you work, but have the index slots filled from the beginning of working more or less so you can use every color everywhere as needed while creating volumes and textures.

That is going to be one hella tough habit to break! ):
I'll try it out when I start something new, however.

Side note: I just noticed that the picture was broken, so I upped a new one in case you missed it. (Edited the initial post it was in).

You said you didn't want critique yet I have critique. I know I'm not Helm but if you're up for it I can tell you a few things that came to mind.
