can definately see the gorillaz influence in the piece but im with sasuke when he says ore detail needs to be added to the hat, if i actually had talent id probably go for something like this with a darker feel, more shadows below the hat with some of his right eye showing, shaggier hair and definately some skuffs and/or scorch marks on the hat, othewise great work!
Thanks, Looking back at the hat again I do see that I could have done quite a lot more with it. What caught my eye is that it should have had more shading done to the left of it (where the card is). Blah I need to do even better now. XD
I think his neck definitely needs more thickness, looks like my 10yo cousin could snap him like a toothpick. I think he could use some longer hair on the back of his head, the sides seem to be longer than the back and it doesn't look appealing. You did say the nose would stay but maybe you could add more definition to the bridge of his nose where the eye appears.
Depending on his age, wrinkles always add more to a character, maybe some around his eyes and mouth and/or dark spots like he hasn't slept well for a while. Add more detail to his hat, maybe a tear or burn, maybe give it a certain material appearance. Those are ways I think this character could be improved but it's all personal preference
Thanks a lot for the feedback, I will definitely take those into consideration on the next piece I make of him. :)
As for the neck though, it is an inspiration part from my favorite artist Jamie Hewlett from Tank girl and the band Gorillaz which many of the characters have that sort of neck. I understand if its not to your liking though and that is fine.
