    Oh Chuck Norris is the shit!

    I'm having trouble with Chucks likeness. It is pain in my assholes. If anybody can tell me what landmark feature I'm missing Please let me know.

    I recognised him even with the doughnut under his eyebags, but what's with the boobs?

    I think Chuck would have more of a squint, a la Walker Texas Ranger. But really what's hurting this image are the hands and chest. The proportions are off on the chest and the hands feel too goofy. You can still use reference and manage to maintain a stylistic approach. Also, it looks like Chuck, so you're on the right path.

    Chuck Norris doesn't give advice, he makes you do it.

    Thanks. I think he would look better with a squint and I just realized his hand on the left is missing a finger now. I must have chopped one off along the way without noticing. I'll focus on tightening up his hands a bit more.

    I found some loose reference for his eyes. And I'm going to change the expression on his face. The current one isn't very Norris.

    Eyes should be higher and closer together.

    Be careful, you're losing the likeness from the earlier version. He's in danger of turning into Kenny Rogers.

    Yeah I think chuck needs a hair cut. I'll stretch out his eyes as when I move them in closer and give him more squint.

    I hope this one looks better. I'm afraid I overworked it.

    I finished the hands. They were a bunch of jive, but I think they look better now.

    I had an epiphany to turn chuck into a street fighter and it fucking worked. I've been drunking irish coffee, so maybe I'm just delusional. Now I have to redo the face to match the new style, so now I'm pissed.

    Could we change the title of the thread, please?

    I've just realised, when I used to go into the local video shop with friends, we'd pick up the box and say "Oh - Chuck Norris - it's shit !" as we rejected it and found a better movie.

    For the picture - needs a bigger beard/chin

    sure thing Will Do!

    I shortened the arm as an experiment. I'll try making the upper arm longer next. It's just going to be risky.

    I hope your not missing the ironic spirit of this one.
    Not at all, I'm thoroughly enjoying it - and responding to your invite to chuck in a few Norris jokes along the way

    Oh for goodness' sake - let's see a bit of courage here, in tackling him - Elwell's already rearranged his face

    Yeah I did sound like a pussy. I figured it would look worse than chuck himself. I will change the title of this thread soon.

    I hope your not wasting your Christmas on these forums. So put down the tablet, shut down your computer and call your mom. Or Chuck Norris will get you.

    I think I'm about satisfied with the drawing for now. I'm going to move on to color now.

    BTW all of my friends loved the christmas card.

    Well, you were told the reason... Finised section is not just for "finished" work, but for professional work. If you're a pro, put a piece there, but if you ain't, and if you need help with piece, put it in crit center.

    Obviously, you needed some help with it, so they (moderators) do not consider you as a pro... it's simple.

    So, your piece may be finished, but not pro, thats what rules say

    I was confused too at the begining, and was posting there, but then I read the "rules" and I don't anymore. The thing is, they should rename that into sometnig else, not "It's finally finished". There are other pieces finished too, but are not worthy to be there (according to "rules") -.-

    Looking for a job!
