Nice use of color

So first of all you have a nice sense of color and you have some vibrant uses of color thats what I like about your work here and other works in your profile, adding some backround svene would have been a great change here but besides that this is a nice character as it is, look forward to more from you real soon.

Adding more effort on the backround would be a great idea here and making this a better overall piece.


Looking good

This actually doesn't look quite that bad. It appears you spend a little bit of time making this as well. The shading seems to be alright as well to be honest. Shading is a bit off and sloppy though is probably the only bad thing about it actually.

While you did spend more time on this and all you could have maybe given a background to give it more of a realistic life feel to it as well.That and maybe a few more details on the face and arms would have been nice as well.

The shading is a bit sloppy, I will agree with others, yet the fact that you shaded it at all it what counts to me. It really adds a nice flavor to the image and really isn't all that noticeable anyway. The shine on the boots and in the eyes were fantastic touches as well. Good ways to really bring a character to life.

I think the shading is for sure the images strong point. It would have been nice to see a background of some sort, or maybe a larger image - anything to make the image more interesting to look at - but I'll give you the fact that it looks good. Just expand upon stuff like this a bit more in the future and you'll be golden.

Keep up the good work.


Decent style, but rough.

Judging just by the character, I think it's safe to say you have a heightened grasp of the style you're drawing in. It seems that you're past the experimental stage, trying to figure out what you want your final product to look like, and you're comfortable in the zone you've found. For an artist, it's one of the most important steps in creating masterpieces.

The piece as a whole doesn't bring a whole bunch of thoughts to me, but I enjoy the dumbstruck look on his face, like one of his friends sent him an email to a shock site. The nose seems a little off to me; if you take a look at it, the angle seems kind of confusing. Considering noses aren't flat, I think you should experiment with some shadowing there. The mouth, however, is excellent; you did a commendable job of shadowing in there.

The clothes are nothing extraordinary, but they do look pretty nice. I'd like a little more detail in the shirt and pants, though. The enormous, comical, shoes look great, though. Lit very well and colored just as carefully, they're the part of this piece I enjoyed most.

Thank you for the complements.I have never been good at noses but ill work on it:).

I refuse to say cute for a couple of reasons.

I'm not calling a picture of a 15 year old boy cute even if it is just a piece of art and also because I don't really find it to be all that cute. I think the better word to use, and this is just my opinion, is dull.

I use the word dull not only to explain the lack of said cuteness, but also because I have no clue what the emotion is. Have you ever knew somebody who had a hard time showing their emotions? I do and on top of being a good person to make fun of it's also a tad annoying when I have no clue if he's happy, sad, angry, joking around, or serious. This picture follows that theme.

The look on his face could mean several things and not being able to put your finger on it can be a tad bit annoying to the person viewing it. Is the character trying to be cute in some way? I hope not because it's a terrible way to position your face if you were. Is he scared of something and he's yelling, is he yelling to a good friend, or is he that kid in the chorus who's nervous so he stands up very stiff and sings quieter than the others. (It looks like the last one so far)

He could also be really surprised or frozen in fear. I think frozen in fear would be the look to go with here. So let's build off of it and see what we can do with this picture. Let's bring up that word dull again and use it in a different way. Can I suggest using it as another word for empty? I always stress this in my reviews. Would you rather see a piece of art with a character with no content around him or a character with a background? I think if you asked that to a general population that the majority would pick having a background.

A background could have showed the emotion on his face. You could have had him in a Christmas theme and we would have known that he was surprised or excited. Put him in a dark environment with shadows or some ghoul and we automatically know that he's scared or frozen in fear.

I think I can envision this piece being in a bedroom with the only light source in the room coming from a small glow outside of a window and the rest emitting from a door that is half way open. The light shines into the room, but is covered by a mysterious and scary shadow, which drapes over a portion of the light like a blanket.

Onto the character itself, the shading could have been a tad bit better, but I actually really like it. A lot of people don't put the time or effort into proper shading and shadowing. Even though I jokingly poked at your character by calling him dull and bland I do find it to be well done. The reflection in the eyes was pretty cool, the proportions makes him look very cartoony, and it's just a neat little guy all around.

Overall it's a nice piece that could really be cool with some extra content and feeling put behind it. Simple things like I suggested can make a piece of "art" into a piece of art quite quickly. Keep on working in your spare time and I'll be interested in what you come up with.
