Kira's Father by Alexandoria Kira's Father by Alexandoria
Youtubevideo!

I'm so proud of this one!
This is the first time I've drawn a man. And i didn't copy any colors! I chose them all by myself! :la:

So this is definitely a milestone for me, cause I never thought, I'd be able to draw something like this without even colorsampling just a few colors! :meow:

ACCOMPLISHMENT! ^^

I hope you guys like it!

Wow, that looks really, really good! Though the hair and the mustache look kind of pasted on, but the colours are awesome and you're definitely better at drawing faces than I am!

Watched the YouTube video of this and I cannot fault this at all! It's so detailed and the fact that you only used few colours off the photo is stunning ^^

Okay, I can't write real critiques, but here comes my little try of a non-critique-critique:
The neck's a bit odd. I know you had a hard time on the Y U NO-neck, but still. The lines should be a little bit more wrinkly, you know? And the... adamsæble xD... thingy is way too... overwhealming of some sort. It stands out :) Maybe that was your intention, I don't know.
You've catched the beard very well, though on his chin it's more some small dots of beard instead of small strawrs ofd beard. The lips look very drawn, maybe work a tiny bit with them. I LOVE the cheek-piece, the beard looks very good and have good colours. The ear's a little too pink and shiny xD His eyes should have a little bit more green and blue in them, instead of just pencil-grey. I like his moustache x3 The nose seems a bit too thick on the top of it, in some way. The green-brown part beneath his eyes could have been a bit longer, so the red dot was longer down that that.
It looks a little shiny, which is cool ;)

Overall, GREAT work! I really adore his shirt and his hair. You've definately put a lot of work and soul into this :D

Ahhhhh SANDIEE!
Look at all the talents you give!

You truly ARE the master of your domain.. I just can not believe the stunning detail in this piece and after I have watched you draw this picture live on internet streaming session I still cant believe you didnt colour sample and then just splashed it on your digital canvas... no, you did none of that you straight up went epic and very hardcore on this. And look at the fabric! Oh dear me it looks soo... real.. as In I feel like I can reach in and touch. It looks like cloth so I just have to say you have really great eye for lighting and paying attention to such textures to make an object look and feel like what they are!

I just had the original picture up on another tab and I compared it by going back and forth and I gotta tell ya...there is a jelly part of me wanting to believe that you traced up the whole thing...

The hair is just amazing it came out as pure gold as in you were able to accurately feed it the same amount of colours present in the original photo.. as in the blues on the top of the head and its reflectivity.

My one and ONLY criticism would be, where the hair meets the skin is 1) sharp clean and perfect and 2) the contrast between then is abrupt therefore making the hair/skin contact look more CG, I understand you like to stave away from colour wheels/gamma/contrast sliders and the like, but if you can ever find a way to harmonize the skin/hair contact your paintings will look less and less like CG. However everything that makes up the hair, its texture and those random strands do indeed make the hair look realistic, but when the hair actually come into contact with the skin, it looks too crispy. Those are the things I am always looking at in CG's the hair and skin contact, other then that everything else looks very realistic..

If only I had 1/10th of your skill.

I just have to say.. I love you and I want you to be my baby mother!

Aaaaaw, thank you so much for this! Dude, i swear, your comments just make my day every time! :la:
As for tracing the photo - I didn't, but i did use a grid, which.. i guess is kinda the same thing, but it just helps me get precision ^^

Confusion-System Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012
Nah I dont believe gridding is tracing/copying at all.. you still have to be drawing up the image in it's entirety which you pulled off so very well again, just like you do on real paper and pencil... I still look at those drawings and think...."I would be this good if I bothered to put some effort into mastering the art of we...art" Seriously I am looking at your final product and the the fact that this is your 1st male drawing? I am actually trying hard to believe you, because it feels like you've done this countless times.. even during your sleep!

I just...believe me can not waiiit for the day you do something mechanical...you know like a vehicle of some kind as that is my absolute favorite genre!

Got anything planned for your next #1 hit for your album? (That question works two ways cuz apparently you can sing...*sigh* I hate you)
