Hello! I'm new here, I hope I'm posting in the right place. This is finished piece which I treat it as a character study - a portrait of an anime character rendered in a realistic way [Painter IX]. The whole final image is here, hairless head and cropped face for this thread are in attachments below (face treated with autolevels). [WIP thread at Epilogue forums.]
Pssst, don't pay attention to his ears, added only for his sake
I'm glad with the final result but he is still too feminine in look. As my all males in fact. He should have long wavy hair, green eyes and beautiful face, but should not be mistaken with a girl Here comes my question - what would you do to make him looking more masculine?
I already enlarged his nose, but I guess it could be stressed more. I wish to save these mouth, though maybe I'll change them a bit. More sculpted cheeks, chin and nose would help. Any other suggestions? Paintovers are welcomed, just don't change his hair too much - they have to be long and wavy more or less looking like here.
