This is something I did a couple of months back, I would really appreciate critiques! Mostly on the hair, I have a hard time making it look natural.

Hi! It looks very good from what I can tell, and a bit stylized, but it works. On the hair, I think I would try more highlights on individual strands, especially in the center ones, since the forehead is so strongly lighted. And maybe even some darker darks in some areas, showing the layers of hair and individual strands. Hoped it helped!

Not bad, I like the way you handled the colors, though I would like to see more cool tones in the flesh.
As for the hair, it really doesn't look to off, considering the photo reference likely had a flash, but, try to keep in mind the path of the hair in terms of how it follows the form, that will help it appear to look more natural.

I really like the sharp curves you've used in the facial features, it gives a nice energy to the piece.
I can't help but feel some slight distortion in the head though. F.e the eyes and forehead look like they're too far into his skull compared with the jawline... If you post the original reference image that might help a bit.

Thanks! Sadly I no longer have the original photo, but I do remember it clear as day. Now that I look back I can see what you mean, the forehead doesn't seem to line up with the rest of the facial anatomy when it comes to perspective.
Thanks so much for the input!

Thanks! It did help a lot, for some reason I can see myself drawing it and how to do it, but it never comes out right. But practice does make perfect.

Thanks! I was wondering what looks stylized though, besides the hair; if there is anything else that is.

Thanks so much for you input.
Hmm... personally I like the warm colors, but I can understand how they can make the image more balanced. I draw a different portrait and put what you said into use.
As for the hair - I see what you mean as well, looks plastered on as if ps'd or something.
