Hey guys so... as you may have already guessed I'm new to painting -I work in a very cartoony style so normally when I colour I go for a more cell shaded look with a little bit of blending here and there to create soft shadows where necessary.
Thing is, I don't want to be limited to that and I think that learning to paint properly is going to teach me a lot of things about form, light and colour which will make my cartooning work stronger.
So here is my first attempt at 'painting' one of my characters, this is in no way finished but I've hit a bit of a wall so decided to seek out some help
I'm having particular trouble with the nose and how it joins on to the face, I don't really know how to convey the form (having a similar problem with the eyes)
I greatly appreciate any critiques, particularly ones focused on light, form and colour. I know the lineart and anatomy are by no means perfect but that's not what I intended to practice with this piece (although if you notice anything you think is worth mentioning I'll still be happy to hear your thoughts)
Thanks in advance everyone!
