When working from reference, especially photo reference, I think it is really important and helpful to really look at how the muscles of the face are moving the skin. In your drawing, you loose a lot of energy around the eyes because you do not give the eyebrows and temples the depth and tension that would be there.
Very nice drawing style and great job with the tongue/mouth you gave it depth without creating a black hole which is hard to do.
That one is hilarious, nice job! I thought it was really detailed in pencil, but when I zoomed in noticed is was drawn a little rough! You placed the lines so well; otherwise it wouldn't seem so detailed. I applaud you for that! I would advice you to highlite the drawing a little less by colouring the white in a pale shade of grey; the chin and forehead are really bright. Also try to add a little more depth to the nose, especially the tip of it .
Thank you for attending the Thumbsshare Critique Event!
Love this!! Definitively a fav! So love that you worked on it basically in a simple way, no fine lines overall, just the details that define the face and the expression. Nice work on the blood splatter as well I do think a bit of the upper lip is missing
I really like how you have taken the best elements to make it look like a photograph but when you look in close you can see the wonderful textures from the traditional media. Naturally the lack of colour against the red of the.. blood, I'm guessing really makes it stand out and indicates how important this aspect of the person is. Great job
