Portrait Practice

Portrait of Atilus. Turned out way more feminine/Pit/childlike/ than I originally intended.

I HATE hair.

Crits pls (:

Mine--->Yours
I'm not good with any anatomy though.

the only reason he looks a bit childish is because his face kind of round, and chubby.
AND HIS EYEBROWS ARE REAL BUSHY. Sorry, had to throw that out there.

And I just realized, mine looks a bit chubby too... Ugh.

Also dude, I dunno if it's a stylistic choice or not, but another major thing that make him look childish is those huge eyes. You can still have anime type eyes without them being so big, and also his nose looks like a kid's nose. Play with the nose a bit to until you get the feeling that he's a bit older than he looks now.

Try changing his nose, without trying to ofend, it looks like Michael Jackson nose.

Maybe using Dokozai's...

This is better, but if you want him to look older, like, in his 20's, you need much more defined shading around the face, and make the eyes more... human-like. But I don't know what sort of age you were going for. Maybe try something like this:


Hey, what do you know. He looks like a person. This is super-quick, but I think you get the idea. Much more defined, making him look older because he's less round. Experiment!

EDIT: I forgot to do this, but make sure to add some highlights to his hair, and extend the shadows on the hair. Also, I was pushed for time so I didn't touch his eyes. Look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GAi7cHiaf-U <That.

Good luck, I love this piece so far.
Toodles!

Face needs to be longer for that to work.  Now a large chunk of his right face was sawed off and almost has no chin.  It's not bad, just the size of the face needs to be adjusted for it to look right.
