Hey there! dropping a critique as a part of #FeedbackFrenzy :la:

I really love how this piece has a sort of traditional grainy texture to it. The shading is also quite soft and pencil-like, it gives this a really serene mood. The expression on his face is lovely too- you've captured a real human personality in there.

I feel the face shading style doesn't match up to the body however. The body and background are soft and 'grainy' (not a bad thing, just that texture I was talking about above) while the face is really clear and crisp. It makes the lighting look off. I would suggest perhaps smoothing out the shading on the rest of the picture or somehow obtaining that same sort of grain to the shading on his face.

Also, the hair looks a bit flat. Increasing highlights to match the rest of the picture will do well, you have the flow and detail of the hair down pat otherwise. In fact it's one of the things I'm most impressed with as far as realism is concerned. And hair is damn hard to master!

Really lovely work, the mood and personality are spot on the money for impact. Also I forgot to mention THAT EAR IS AMAZING. Ears are the hardest to draw. The shading on it is perfect.

Well done! Hope that was helpful. <3

Hello dear team member of :iconfeedbackfrenzy:
I found your artwork! :D

I want to first say that I love the mood of this peace. It's quite calm and collected. His expression is wonderful... very soft and tranquil. I especially love how you made his face. Overall, it's very well proportioned with the body. I also noticed the fingers... I'm a sucker for little details, and these are terrific.

The face is at a different lighting compared to the rest of the body (as the other critique said, a bit too light) but all I think you need to do is add some shadows there. More shadows across the planes of the face: cheekbone, lips, nostrils, eyes, hair, ect. I don't necessarily agree with the "grainy" texture--I just think things like that will come along as you add more shadow.

The ear looks odd to me. If the hair is partly covering the ear, then there should be a deeper shadow seperating the two, and the strands should have a stronger presence. But if the hair is tucked behind the ear, than the ear has to have a different, fuller shape.
Right now, it looks halfway between the two.

The hair can defenietly have more contrast--right now it's insubstantial. The strands falling on the elbow especially seem to float as they are. They should be heavier in reality.

Overall, I think the piece is a tad top heavy because of the shadows there--to counter, you can made the black deeper in the bottom half of the picture.

This is a very beautiful piece. Keep up the great work, I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Very, very well done. The shading, toning and hair are very realistic.

But you really should put a mature filter for nudity on this.

You think so? I have been for frontal nudity, but not otherwise. Better to be safe though I guess. :shrug:
