Looks kinda condescending, like you're (silently) scolding someone

Love the smirk. Seems to say "I'm gonna screw you"... but I can't decide which type of screwing is implied. Should I be excited, or scared?

Shai, I really like your pose. The crossed arms is an interesting feature to portray, but comes at the cost of face space. The pose almost reminds me of Nicolas Rush.

EDIT: Grrrr, this is what I get for taking too long. Disregard my post, as it's out of order now. Cry

I like this avatar picture, here is what I think of it:

The pose is a little 2-dimensional. Try to avoid a pose that is direct at the camera, as you lose depth to a character's detail. Use more of the screen and try to use negative space to your advantage.

The shadow on the screen-right cheekbone is a little bit hard, causes a strong border that is a little heavy. It is hard to avoid because of this characters facial structure.

The screen-left eyebrow seems a little bit forced. The idea is correct, but the angle of the eyebrow is harder than it should. Soften the angle a little bit to make it seem more subtle than obvious. It is a nice touch, so keep the feeling there, but just soften it.

From what I can tell from this character, it is mischievous, with a hidden agenda. I can tell that from the character's facial expression, but it could benefit to experiment with the light choices to see if there's a way to complement this feeling. Just like the eyebrows, don't make it heavy. Just a subtle feeling of "oh, I'm a little concerned right now," whereas going 110% on a heavy dark shadow might make the composition feel cliche.


I definitely do like it. Big smile I like more what is trying to be conveyed, it can tell a story behind the character.

8/10




For Phoebus,

I enjoy the expression a lot. It's sort of a "what? you're ridiculous." expression. I feel that the neck is a little bit broken, though, but it's with the limitations of the creator. :p

You should see about moving the entire character into frame a little bit more. The screen-left side is a little bit odd, how the shoulder there seems to dissapear.

I like it, it's fun.

7.5/10

ok bye

Somewhat an unusual combination of a perfectly standard face and white eyes. 7/10

Projecting strength and discipline, accurate to the detail.

Also not an everyday composition.

Typical Amarrian face. You look like an arrogant, humorless, cruel and stubborn fundamentalist. What's not to like about that?
I give it 9/10.

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.
