An old bearded man for the weekly challenge. Was very spontaneously done.
Used the following picture as Reference: Link
Nice beard and wrinkles.
Simply amazing. Really good color usage
Gorgeous colors and details.
really like the skinsructure and the colors.
Very nice. Love the colours.
looks better now :) (i always prefer to merely draw the lower lip under a moustache, too ;)
@Imagician: Ah, now I unterstand what you mean. As Adarias said, the "separation line" is not any line for separation, just a line for reflection. And I tried now to read this as separation, but I can't
In fact, you don't see the upper lip clear, it's under the beard.
However, I tried to fix this with a qucik edit (beard darker and lips seperation more clear).
that separation is the bottom of the lower lip i think, but it could be drawn more clearly.
Nice work . I have two things here:
The lips. I perceived what's there as one lower lip first, til I noticed there's a seperation line going through it, making the most part of it the upper lip, giving him quite an overbite and bulging upper lip and a "choked" look. It let's the lips sit a bit low, overall, I guess.
Second thing is, the left half of the face is quite dark (which I like), which is just for the skind -- the beard is darker on the left as well, but for my feeling not as accordingly enough (should be darker, IMHO).
Thank you Cyangmou for your critique,
I finally ripped of the blue light, was never satisfied with it and edited the eyes and lip.
although I have to say that I agree with ultimaodin about the blue at the nose and the lips.
The lip seems also to be a bit thin and you don't drew eye lids.
Thanks for the comments!
@ultimaodin: I did some minor changes, now the backlight is a little bit thinner.
Yes, it is perfect work. Nice style and colours :)
very nice, great colors and shading
I very much like this however I'm not certain about the blue backlight on the nose edge, it's a bit to bold. I think the pink colour would work better there. Still much better than I can do
