For Spleen, because he asked.


I don't know. I feel like I should use this space to make excuses. So um.... yeah. Something.

Looks great. I like that shading style, and I'm not sure what's up with the colors, but it's cool how it looks like a subtle blend of tones. The background design's cool too, though I wouldn't be surprised if it's some simple thing that I'm overly impressed by. :O

Wow, I didn't know this thread was here. I should check this forum more often!

As I've said in chat, I love it. He really does look like he just kicked some ass - it looks like it could be a win portrait in a fighting game, which is cool, and actually kind of what I intended when I requested this, though I guess subconsciously.

My favorite part is the shading, especially the way his neck looks so realistic. Look! He's got a sternum, just like a real person!

The contrast between the blood from the head wound and the hair isn't particularly obvious; the similarity is enough to make the blood coming down from his head look like an extension of his hair. The wound itself also doesn't look realistic, I think. The blood seems to flow down from his otherwise unblemished hairline without affecting any of the hair.
