That's one of your best compositions, in my opinion. Dark and sexy, he reminds me a bit of Altair . I still have the usual criticism... The details are intricate, but the individual elements don't harmonize that well. Each is excellent on its own, though!!
i'm impressed with the face stubble. something i hate doing when the time comes. if anything stands out is that his hand seems a bit on the small side. i don't know if it's the location at the bottom-corner that makes it seem like it's crammed in there, but it does seem undersized. great flesh tones in the skin, by the way.
Yeah i have trouble with the hand size. I ended up resizing it a bit after i looked in a mirror with my hand held up. It could be that my head is huge or that youre right about the corner idea. Interesting compositional issue, ill definitely keep that in mind, thanks a lot
Also stubble is way easy, just scribble in some hairs, then have a discoloration layer underneath it to made the skin look darker. Did it in like 5 min
