It has been far too long and too much has passed since I last worked on a fully rendered character.
In fact, it has been too long, enough for me to not remember how far high my bar was set, frankly i don't know if i met her, fell short or established a new high.

For a various number of reasons, most of them personal, I had a blast working on him.

He is a character from Hubris: Epilogue, and there is a lot planned for him :)

I will write it down once I get some true rest and be capable of explaining myself better.

Cheers

comments and crits always welcome

for those of you who insist on ranting on anatomy, i wont even bother with a comment, and just say that in order to destroy one must first create.
I learned myself quite a bit of both anatomy and proportions, i have my fair share of nude drawings as well as portrait, and there is a time, much like Hyung Tae Kim (may not be the case) where you just don't care anymore. You know where things are supposed to be, the way you make them look is entirely up to you.

So yes, the head his small, and his body huge, the shoulders are too far apart and the legs are too long... should i go on?

intentional or not accept it.

eheh just felt like ranting a bit.

EDIT: decided to change a few things on this character's costume and appearance as well, for instance i enlarged the head which was annoying me for sometime now. Second i tweaked the hair and added a moustache and a goatee. As far as costume changes go, just added the sash, the medals and the rope like ornament, making it a far more formal or ceremonial kind of outfit.

Hm, well, now, I love the bling bling additions to the design and the hair tweak and mustache gives him a slightly more period-ish look, before that the hair looked a bit too modern.

ahah thank you 
yep that was the general idea
hmm but i really wanted his hair to look more modern now, hence combing it to the side/back rather than full back as he had before

you complement him you complement me, it's a self portrait character I decided to incorporate into Hubris: Epilogue

lol, his hair is just puffed up there, and it looks kinda classy to me. like Elvis's hair. I think he looks great.
this was a self portrait you say? I like how you depicted yourself. Its inspiring actually. I want to go make one of myself to know, haha!

ahah i now figured out how the hair should actually look like, i might repaint it to look less puffy :XD:

it was a confidence boost, i had gone through a horrble stage in my life, and then i took this self portrait idea and made a character out of him

The anatomy works pretty well for his proud attitude and posture.
I like that soft lighting you gave your character and that smooth rendering of fabric.
It's nice to see how much you've evolved as an artist during all that time I've been watching you.
So much persistence... this character portrays your personality very well (or at least it looks so in this illustration) :D

thanks for commenting, I was starting to miss you insight and your constructive criticism :)
glad my progress is showing, I was afraid my time off and my personal issues could have taken a much heavier toll than what I had expected.

and I'm also glad, heck I'm very happy, that despite not knowing me personally you can see a bit of my personality in the picture, it was hard for me to portray it, my closest friends had no worries but I'm happy you were able to notice it despite not knowing my in person :)

thanks for commenting ^^

You're welcome, it wasn't difficult to notice it.
Every artist puts a bit of themselves in the characters they create, sometimes less, sometimes more.
The best characters turn out to be those that we can closely relate to. They are the most unique as well ;)

In this character I used everything I could possibly have :XD:
And yes apparently it is so, over time i found this one to be one of the best and most iconic ones I made so far and I didn't even let out much of his storyline (well maybe it is iconic in my head because I know what he is, where he comes from and what he hopes to achieve)

I think the term you're looking for is "stylization"
