    Facial structure/Shading help!

    I would greatly appreciate any critique/suggestion anybody can offer me! Be it shading, structure, anatomy, lighting, anything!
    The picture is much larger than this but I really would like to focus on his face right now. Cause my values are lacking and the facial features are......./shudder

    Honestly, with this style you got going on here, any more facial features wouldn't really add to it, unless you mean facial hair or something. As far as the values go, one spot in question would be his nose. it's much darker than the rest of his face. I think you could lighten it up. Also, unless he's a mutant, that hand is quite off. Other than that, I like where it's going and I really don't see any other problems with it so far. You're in early stages so things will change as you go.

    Um... what's going on with the hand? It looks way too big. You could also go lighter on the face.

    Thanks both of you! I'll focus on the nose and lightening up the face a bit and then I'll see how I feel about it. I appreciate your help!

    Also yes the body is so...not staying the same (since this thing is a re-paint of an old piece) but I agree with you both, that hand needs some shrinking.
    Thanks again!

    it would be nice to see your intended lighting for the piece so we can break apart the light setup a bit better, but the only thing I see is a little discontinuity in the structure of her cheekbones.

    Other than that, the face looks pretty believable.
