My Soul by cos22 My Soul by cos22
just another practice with realism...and man is it hard...orz
the nose took me a while...
hair was fun to color~XD but i'm not too happy with the results..the color looks kinda weird to me...
love doing the lips~~ i think it's too pink tho...looks like he has lip gloss on...:|

and yes, me too lazy to draw the other eye so i covered it with his hair 8DD
same goes to the body, too lazy to draw it...kinda have a minor artblock, AGAIN!! DX

SAI and PS
4-5 hrz

I think it's a beautiful solution and I like the colors and the render of the lips and eye.

The proportions of the face are not very "realistic", but they don't need to be if you don't want to. :nod:

I understand you didn't go for photorealism and I find it quite charming.

tank u very much~~X3

really? which part don't look proportional? like the positions of the eyes? or the nose?
i guess it's sorta semi-realism but i would still like to kno which parts looks off~

XDD that's cuz i'm way too lazy...and without references, it's impossible for me to go for photorealism 8DD
aww tank u~

As I said I don't like being strict about proportions and realism as there is many kinds and levels of realistic proportions and finishing. It just that nose and mouth seems too low in relation to the eye.

The most common proportions (that doesn't correspond to every human for sure and also doesn't to every style) is that the distance between chin an nose is about the same of the one between nose and eyebrows and eyebrows to top of skull. So if you're looking for a tradicional canon, here you go. ^^

may I gave some critiques?
1. The eyes proportion kinda asjkhdajgdsajd...too high or too far from the nose
2. The nose hole too big??? or just based on the references?
3. The lips too thick..maybe the color blending do fine...but...aah...the proportion look so hmmm...

I'm sorry if this comment hurts you T_T, but I hope this didn't turn you down...I ever got worse critiques, but they're for our own good ^^

you may learn from photo first, and then after you hold some knowledeg bout realist drawing, you will be better ^^

Good luck

sure~
1. o..it does, doesn't it..
2. well i think that's a case of personal preference~ and no, i didn't use reference.
3. really? how can i make it look more proportional?

it's fine~ i don't mind critique~^^
it doesn't turn me down at all~ i kno i'm not perfect and mistakes r all over the places XD

i sometimes lightly reference photos but i don't often do realism...orz
tanks for the tips~

XDD i just kinda go about it as a traditional painting, not digitally 8DD that's what i recommend if u have troubles with realism, try black and white traditional portrait~~ that was my foundation :nod:
