moved it forward a little more...
thoughts to this stage where about concept. Helm's piece has such a strong concept, and that is what makes the piece for me, i felt i should a least mimic that a little too.

Not sure if the visor cap will read too well to other people. Took me a couple of minutes to see what it was or get it, until I saw the cards. May have been due to it being a wip in all. I'd suggest trying something more fitting, like a fedora, or tophat of sorts...

It's hard to critique at this point, however, as it's still in it's beginnings, and awaiting further detailing(dithering, what have you...). Hope this clears up a lot toward the latter stages, rather than going unfinished, like most most diamonds in the ruff I see now a days.
my back hurts...

yea the hat is really confusing to me, and i definitely preferred the expression in this one: http://animation.willfaulds.com/avatars/AvatarMonth_b08.gif

EDIT updated visor improvement? i think it is still a little hard to read. any suggestions? i've tried showing the straps broken but cannot get that to look any good at all.

hmm over the expression i felt unsure about it because it was too much like he was trying to be ugly if that makes sense... thought it would be better to put him into a context. not sure it is working yet. am attempting semi retarded poker face...

try a miniature top hat, or bowler-hat or something more recognizable, hell even a sombrero would look fun!

Hmm if anything, I would say that the new visor is a digression. I completely agree with Adam, the other expression was great, this one is.. not as great.

Ok. Thanks for the comments guys. I've got a more suitable and succinct concept now. Reflects my actual interests more too....

The visor, cards, and current expression will all go. I'll post an update today when i get a chance to do it!

Yeah, I do think so. Take reference for the hands! Nothing worse than photorealistic face and the rest being invented.
