Nice job! I like this variation of the three. The character of his face really draws me in, and I like how you have all the sketchy lines for shadows in groups, it adds a bit of traditional flair to it.
Thank you! I might try a whole new submission if I have time today. Your submission and gallery in general are setting a pretty high bar for the rest of us. I'm thankful to have a critique from such an accomplished artist.
Oh no problem at all, everyone is still learning~ If you get around to making another variation, try having the colors mimic the sharpness of your line strokes. Instead of being blotchy, they could be more strokey like the sketch. (I hope that makes some sense)
It does make sense, unfortunately... well maybe not unfortunately, I am nearing the end of my senior year at college, so I'm a bit too busy to give this anymore time. there is always the next contest! Thanks again.
