I learned in my recent thread that you should ditch the white background, and use something to fit your 'scene'.  :crazy:

Hey man, you gotta lower that color count and get rid of all those grays on the mask, here's an edit of mine, showing you the power of contrast and light sources:

Note: I'm not really sure why I changed the mask, I got really into it I guess.

Are you posting here to make US happy?

Personally I think this piece although its pretty small still needs much work, especially on the mask which you dont want to change. also do you think the kind of antialiasing you applied is reducing the jaggies in some way?

It's looking better, though the piece still needs alot of contrast and maybe you could make him hold something? Those grays on the head just aren't helping man, get rid of em. I was thinking about his appearance aswell, maybe changing his shirt to white, giving him black pants and giving him a black tie might make him look a little bit more uh, well, like a business man(Though the red and green work fine too, just a suggestion)?

Ok i took off the gray form the mask. and added more contrast to the shirt.


Here he's holding a baseball bat.

I noticed the bat kind of blended in witht he mask so i made a metal bat instead. Any suggestions on how to make it loomk more metalish?
