@ Mrmo: Brook from One Piece? Also, I love the way you dither with the small circles.
@ a3um: Awesome....frog? Although I think you need to go all out with the afro and really make it big and round.

Erm, I've only watched the first ten or so episodes of One Piece, so I wouldn't really know :)

*edit* Google image search shows me Brook is pretty much a Slash expy (regarding the style), so that's not really an afro :D

I thought that too based on a google search but it's definitely an afro, and it's always called an afro in the show. But, must just be a funny coincidence. Although you really should watch the rest, I'm near 400 myself and Brook only just came into the series though.

Should be a muffro. Then again, that may suggest something else.

Muffro definitely sounds like something quite different. How about "the chocolafro muffin", or just "chocolafro"? No, not quite right either.

Shadows need some retouching, but I think I'm more or less done...? It's suppose to be viewed on the grey default background, looks ugly on white unfortunitly... :(

@Chibiwing - scatter the highlights more throughout the hair.
@Mrmo - For your second guy - the face is looking great, but the hair is very lacking. I know it sounds like a bit of a cop out, but perhaps try making his hair a solid colour.

@skamocore, that's because I haven't really worked on the hair yet :D expect an updaet :)
@chibiwing, much better, you can also scatter some 'middle' tone throughout the 'shadow' tone, too. Makes it look more 3d and less flat :)
Also, regarding contrast, you could use different color ramps for the hair and the face! Or alternatively, you could hueshift the highlights (or shadows) (or both).

Some sweet afro's.
This is a bit rough but taking shape. Does an Afro need to be round? I think he's looking more like Mozart Elvis - needs a white fro and a piano maybe... Headband and round fro I reckon.
 
@a3um - that is great
@offwhite - That's a cool muffro

I know it's basically the same muffin, but I wanted to try animating it. I would really appreciate some tips on how to make smooth animations, 'cos it's my very first time animating stuff.
