Man, I thought the point of portraits was drawing human subjects but NOT having to draw hands? SMH

Thanks, Hapiel. I'm never good at reading my own expressions and people used to say I often looked lost or confused, so I'm glad that whatever this expression has come out as, it's a fun one!

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/6/2021 09:24

Thanks for the kind words, gawrone!

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/6/2021 09:17

Haha, thanks vrine!

Thanks, BigPotato! I struggled for ages trying to get a bit of highlight into the hair and nothing ever looked right (mostly it made me look prematurely grey), so I'm glad the final look works.

Thanks, sjd_sjd_. Very kind of you!

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 6/6/2021 05:17

You've got such a fun expression! Really well done :D

gawrone (Level 10 Coral Reef) @ 6/6/2021 00:19

I'm gonna say the hand is the best here, but that was a tough choice :)

vrine (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 6/5/2021 18:41

Really great pose and lighting! You remind me of Tom Hiddleston in a really good way :)

BigPotato (Level 4 MSX) @ 6/5/2021 16:24

Ooh! Really nice forms on this one. The way the hair texture is mostly left implied is neat, too.

Amazing - Great composition and colour choice. Love the preview!

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/5/2021 12:55

Thanks so much, amberMechanic! I really enjoy drawing hands, so that's very nice to hear. I appreciate the kind words.

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/5/2021 12:52

Thanks, Sarah! I'm surprised the pose has been mentioned twice. I didn't think it was that notable, especially compared to a fun, characterful one like yours! I only really put the hand in because I had more confidence in my ability to draw that than my actual face

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/5/2021 12:51

Thanks, zombieMode!

SeDiceBisonte (Level 7 Junk) @ 6/5/2021 12:50

Thanks so much, Chris! I felt like the portrait was a little prosaic so I wanted to do something silly with the preview.

amberMechanic (Level 3 Sea Otter) @ 6/5/2021 11:47

Wow that hand couldn't have been easy. It looks so good! You've really got a lot of character in that portrait.

Sarahboev (Level 7 Baklava) @ 6/5/2021 10:59

This is great! I agree with Chris the pose and hand are really well done! 

zombieMode (Level 6 Garbage) @ 6/5/2021 10:33

Sweet preview!

Christoballs (Level 6 Saber-toothed Tiger) @ 6/5/2021 09:58

Hehe, I like the animated preview!
I like the pose, and the hand is really nicely done.
Good job!
