Shade colored by toxkillfraex Shade colored by toxkillfraex
Looky looky... a two day work say I spent about 8 hours in total on this work (including the sketch I uploaded a while ago)

something bit me in the ass this weekend and I just went berserk on this one and I :heart: the result. Really I do and I'm surprised how FAST it went.

The only part I hate is the neck.

COMMENTS AND CRITIQUES appreciated

Good design on the mask. Not so serious style, but good. I really like the eyes. Yes, the neck could use some work, and perhaps the hood too, to be equal to the mask's look.
Nice one. ;)

wow I didn't expect such a comment since I believe there's allot of room for more drama if I was better.

the eyes really catch you though the mask needs to be a little more symetrical

somebody told me something about using more general shapes when making masks like this... This person was probably also referring to symmetry.

thanks for clearing that up for me =D

This definitely looks like a character not to be messed with O.O I love it! I don't have time right now to read the story you linked there, but he looks interesting enough a character to assure I'll be reading it at some point. The mask alone is amazing, and you did a great job coloring it too! You did a nice job with the shading, and those eyes look amazing! The only thing I have a problem with is the clothes; the hoodie looks a little... flat and not really saggy like it normally would. But other than that, I think you did an amazing job creating this character and depicting him this well in a picture. :)

thanks for appreciating this work this much. The hood seems to be the most noticeable problem. It took a long while before I found an appropriate enough look for this guy and tbh I've been inspired by some guy named shadow the machine angel: [link]
I've merely come upon that source of inspiration by mere chance and in many ways I'm glad I did.
Otherwise I wouldn't have taken up photoshop on a a whim and colored this.

this looks pretty serious.

Good job on the highlighting/shading on that metal.

I love the look of his (her?) eyes, and I sadly admit you have a better understanding of reflected light than me. Good color blending.

Is this an OC, or fan art?

his eyes ^^

it's an OC I set a link to his story that I posted in my journal in the description.

I don't consider myself fit as writer hence the choice to put it in my journal ^^;

I'm guessing that my 'reflective light' is off even here. If I got any of it right it is more with dumb luck than actual knowledge ^^;

Your hoodie comes out really flat. I did a really quick paint over, hope it helps you a bit. [link]

there are two things I've noticed in my last few works and that's shoulders in portraits and clothing in general. Which also comes out in your paint over which I very much appreciate. Seems while I was working on this the eyes shifted up a bit as well


I've a zillion things to learn for coloring though. Despite all that I'm very proud of this work since it feels like a milestone.
