FFXIV commission. He got muscles.


Really cool

Cool charecter design. Recognizable yet novel in a sense with the bony external details, horns, etc. I also like how the colorsheme, especially with the eyes, make it so that it is not certain if he's a goodguy or badguy. He could be both. On the one hand he looks demonish, on the other, he looks quite tidy and although the facial expression is a bit on the darker side it could be sadness rather than evil or hate. Really perplexes me and makes me wounder who he is! Nice work.

Exceutionwise I like the estetic overall with the srt of cartoonish style. The pants and boots look great, so does the body overall. My quirk comes with the boony pieces that I think are a bit too bright and could have gotten some more shadow. Now there shapes are carried by the linework but I'd liked to see some more emphasis through shadows to make these pieces follow the charecter better. They are not, in places a b it flat, for instance on his left shoulder where just a small shadow at the top to separate the bony from skin had gone a long way (Motivation for 4/5 since its such a prominent part of the piece)

Otherwise a really nice concept and I like the purple shadow to break off from the black background. I just wished that you hadn't put it under his left foot but ended it just behind the foot to emphasize that he is standing on the ground, thereby planting him in a plane. Now he is a bit floaty as the shadow is shown underneath the shoe which is only possible if there was nothing there.

Great work, cool charecter, love'd to see more. Cheers.

Thank you very, very much for the critique. I appreciate it! I'll work harder to focus on the smaller details from now on.
