:iconpyrodanceplz: :iconcheerplz: It is finished. :faint:
This really was the toughest drawing I ever did. But it also was a lot of fun. Of course there are parts I don't really like but all in all I'm happy with it. And that is nothing I'm saying about a lot of my drawings. ;)
I didn't smudge it to get the skin the way I wanted it. That was something really new to me. Usually I smudge everything. :ninja:

The reference is by :iconf-i-g-m-e-n-t:. She has a great gallery!! :love:

Daily Deviation

This drawing is absolutely excellent, however, the left eye (the eye on the right hand side) is slightly off as there is not enough eye white and looks slightly strange compared to the other. I think that the wrinkles in the fingers could use some work because they are a little too cartoony. I also think that the hair on the beard is drawn a little too thick but the rest of the drawing is amazing. The skin has great texture and the creases between the eyebrows are very lifelike as well as they do not stand out to much. An exquisite artwork on the whole.
What do you think?

Excellent work! i must say the skin is exquisite as is the hair But i do have some Crit. i think in accordance with the crit you did receive the persons left eye(the one on the right) actually needs to be darker, I think the highlight you gave on the inside of it lights up too much of the eye and since we dont see any white of the eye there it makes it look like he has a fully dark, or almost blind looking eye. So suggestion is to darken and almost remove the highlights on the inside of the eye. And lastly, the skin in the fingers i think has too much contrast, which is usually a hard thing to get but i must say i think its too plastic looking in this situation. On the whole though Great job. and Congrats.

amazing drawing!
his eyes are so real and alive, especially the left one. if it wasn't for his fingers you could think it was a photo. not really your fault though - they already look kinda strange on the original

Sorry, ich bin hier zur Zeit sehr langsam im Beantworten.
Vielen lieben Dank! haha ja die Finger, da bist du nicht die erste, die die kritisiert. :XD: Die sehen auf dem Foto halt auch schon so ledrig aus und wenn ich ehrlich bin, sind Hände mit das schlimmste was mir beim Zeichnen passieren kann.^^
