Design's good. Expression's better than most; and while I personally think you're showing far too much torso for the interest your face holds, you've got a good grasp of proper framing and the background trick is pulled off better than most.

But the lighting. Oh, Maker, the lighting. You make that perfectly good skin look like plastic. Or wax. Or both. And that gorgeous armor? No depth to it at all. Besides, the grey on grey is already questionable, and the utter lack of color or contrast makes it even worse. Even the saturation in what could be healthy skin color is gone. Your avatar is so uncomfortable to look at right now.

Try different lights. Try different angles. Anything's got to be better.

7/10, better grasp of the mechanics than most, but painfully executed.

EDIT: bumped it from 6 to 7 upon review because of the glow on the back cheek. That's not bad. I would try toning down the gloss of the lips? It gives it a shine that could work well normally, but the whole effect is to make the lighting look much worse at first impression than, perhaps, it appears upon closer review.

Overall, a good portrait. The armor looks good with the background, pose and expression work hard, and send a no nonsense message... which will go unheeded by non-sense generators, to their own undoing.

I feel like I saw a bazillion of those dudes with the armor and the poor's man monocle (#nopoors)
So all you get is a low 3/10

Edit since I don't want to break the thread:
I'm the only dude around with the first GSF wwb background, full Sansha Uniform and Night stalker goggles..
If you judge other people's toons based on the note they gave you, you need to step back imo lol

8/10 - The outfit and lighting fits the pose and attitude, though I am not a fan of the eye implant :P

The lighting and colors are really nice, but the armor is kind of blah. The only thing that seems fun about it is his face.

I give it a 6.

The background works well with your pose and clothing, add the shades onto that and you look like you're ready for a fight, although it does have somewhat of a generic feel to it.

Why you pouting? Sumbuddy ate the last muffin?

The pose and setting works well, but the mouth gives me a weird impresion, as if you were sad rather than stern. In the context of the pose, scarrs and et cetera, it looks funny. In addiiton to the mouth, maybe you could do something with the eyebrows, moving the inside corners towards the nose makes for a interesting range of expressions, from angry to ironical to focused.

Would say 8/10 for the concept and being recognizable, but it losses when seen bigger so will say it's more like 7.5/10.

The dress, that would cost the fortunes of 100 planetside rich men... you wear it as casually as if it were a tee-shirt, portrait not over done, good colors and a faintly cat like attitude seems to peek out. Perhaps Jin-Mei? Maybe tweek the background for a better silhouette, but again the soft edges are kind of nice too.

Pretty good!

Pretty good :D

I think shoulders slightly more angled away from camera would help, but apart from that, it's pretty groovy !
Does give the toon a suitable amount of character though Twisted
