Oi, these are really nice edits. I'll take a lot of that into account.
Trevorius- unfortunately he's not supposed to be. I'm still working on it :P
Edit:
okay, so I fixed up a lot of the highlights. I kept a bit of lighting on the ear due to the depth it adds (your ear looks a bit like paper IMO). I kept a lot of the facial details due to the manly look it gives it and basing it off my own face when I make that expression. That was a really helpful edit. Thanks.

Tuna, just a suggestion to you, if you really wanna get better at drawing faces you should go grab a mirror and start drawing your own face or browse around the internet and grab some pics of faces. Face looks a lot better than it originally was but I'm not sure if you completely understand the foundations of what you're doing.

As I said earlier I have been studying, but its gradual. You also have to remember that this is practice just as much as a pencil sketch, I've been learning a lot about ears and noses and cheekbones throughout the progress of this piece. Also its really fun to work on.

I'm not telling you to do a pencil sketch, I'm telling you to draw from life, which helps you improve greatly.

I actually have been. Mostly comparing it to faces on google and the occasional check in the mirror if I need help with the expression. Its actually starting to divert from the expression I originally had planned, but I'm definitely preferring it. Anyway, took a little tour through this whole thread and tried to fix up any flaws I missed.

Mouth is too low, nose is a bit big, ear beings at eyebrow and ends at end of nose, think of the neck as a cylinder, throw some saturation on those darker colors.

I think you should look further at Sushi's latest edit. Flip the two images and compare the changes. I can see some flaws right now looking at the two next to each other. Despite being a 'quick edit', it brings up some good points.

He looks too malevolent now. I still prefer the emotion in bengoshia's total edit. You've taken his happy confident hero candor and made it too badguyish - it's the brows and the mouth doing it.

I don't really want him to look particularly mellow, but I know what you mean. I'll try and fix it.

Mellowed him out and fixed some other issues.

Its weird, half of me is anxious to get this done and over with, but the other half is really enjoying working on it.
