Here's what I meant by unclogging the nose:

Now it seems to me the nose can be brought out even more. :P

thankyou ilkke.

you've made it crystal clear now. not sure why i needed you to :blind: i was working in the opposite direction... even with adarias' brilliant edit.

i think i'll find some time today to make edits on some of the previous ones. i feel enlighten and see volume flaws with my 1st one that i just didn't before.

yup. you can put a little star sticker on. if you've got one?

might have fun colouring that one it being metal and ega's crazy colours. or it might drive me insane. i wait in anticipation.

updates:
cool eh? (the shades)

EDIT
a bit of a cheat and not what i wanted but i like it...
i think i'm done?

apologies for my last post, apparently the error was on my end, and as it turns out, pixen DID fuck up the colors, but on my computer. 

critique wise, i suggest you stick to flat shading and dithering at the end.  right now you have huge sections of it where it doesn't belong.

Agree with eck, also I'd stick to blues and greys for this. Much easier in my opinion.



messy edit, its late forgive sloppiness.

Don't know if it has any resemblence to ptoings but I just think you're over dithering this for no reason. I wouldn't try to mix colours unless nothing else works. I think the dark blue's a nice colour to work with the black and grey because its at the darkest point of the spectrum, I'd use hue shifting to your advantage. The brown you're using may be close to the grey but still is on the lighter side of the spectrum so creates a jump to black from the face, seperating it too much.

I've tried to loosen up the shape a bit, I don't think ptoing's were so stiff and uniform.

thanks for the edit terley. i wasn't thinking about style matching so much with that last one just trying out some ideas. was interested to see if i could imply a golden sheen with a form of optical mixing.

anyway i said i'd do this yesterday but only found time today. went back and editted portrait 1...

still a WIP concentrating on volumes. i think i've corrected the shape enough now

i felt like getting on with something new today. any crits on the last post still very welcome.

i'm moving on to the more complicated portrait now...

from (Helm)

i got distracted an concentrated on my left eye...

style notes so far: limited use of very dark darks. 'soft' shadows but still convincing depth. dither shading. grosteque.

EDIT: i just realised the angle's a little boring as i've tended to approach them face on.

DOUBLE EDIT:
improved the pose
