A character I created for a roleplaying game (Living Arcanis, a Dungeons and Dragons setting). This character was originally an Aristocrat/Cleric devoted to the god Sharish (who is all about binding demons and making them serve humanity - deities in this setting are all unaligned, alignment being determined by the sects that follow them). This character belongs to a race known as the Val, metahumans with psionically gifted powers.

I like it.

I feel like this could've used a gloss over of the sorts(touch up some of the messy parts, like the gold part of the jacket).

I like the style, it isn't too outward or inward.

The looks of the character are displayed clearly, and doesn't look like no effort whatsoever was made.

Good job!

Could use a touch-up

I think that you've made a decent effort with this piece and if I had to guess (which I must, since you've not told me what you've used for the picture, you went with acrylics on canvas and scanned it into the computer.

If that is the case, it's not a bad effort. Sadly, the scanner has taken a little away from the quality and some of the detail around the fringe of this guy's hair has been lost. A quick play with Photoshop could solve that and give you a more crisp presentation. The same could be said for the "pixelated" parts of his hair.

I was dismayed about the eyes - look at yourself in the mirror - even if you're looking mad, it's not usual to see eyes opened so wide. The irises are usually at least partly obscured, by one eyelid or the other.

The facial hair adds to the menace of the image and I'd like to see more of your work, it's certainly passable, though I feel it requires a little more.

Oh wow, thanks for all the responses. I've actually been working on flash games for quite awhile after posting this and only just stumbled across all these comments!

This work was done exclusively with digital media.

Very neatly done

One of the better pieces I've seen on the art portal in a while. I particularly enjoy the lighting and shadow you've done, I must say it looks very professionally done.

The backstory is also quite helpful in reviewing it. It gives a setting for the man to be wearing the clothes he's wearing, and the look in his eyes, to me, they look deep, like that of a cleric. The colors you've used are nice, and I like the lines. Not sure what tools you've used, but I'm at least going to guess water colors.

There seems to be something odd with certain parts of his hair, almost like it's pixelated. Doesn't look like the brush of a pencil. I can see it where the hair meets his forehead as well. Might be a problem upon saving the image, the format or the upload, though I'm not sure.

I do think you could've spent just a tad more time working on this portrait, but it's absolutely a very well-made piece of artwork.

Looks like it was water colored and chalk coloring at the same time. The guy just seems to look a bit angered while flustered at the same time too.

The background seems to be a few shades of red rubbing against each other creating the aura that the person is either powerful or just purely an evil person trying to kill others off.

His outfit looks pretty nice so I can give you props there since they take just as much time meaning you need to be able to draw the clothes but be able to show that the person has limbs.

His face is interesting with his goatee going on there. His hair seems a bit spiked which seems to be a trait mainly associated with villains of that time. His eyes just seem to be kind of popping out as well which is good too.

Overall, very nice portrait. Would look good on a wall.
