Janus by spring-warmth

:iconstrixvanallen:
First, the downs: I guess the main problem with tha face is that the left eye is too big - it should be slightly smaller than the right because its further away. With a smaller left eye, the face there can be thinner, forming a more natural curve in the cheeks. Speaking of which, the left side of the face does look a little weird, but I guess the real problem here is the right ear - it's too far away, making the right side of the face bigger than it should be. I put my hands in my screen, over these parts of the drawing and my instincts tell me to draw the ear a little over the hair bang.

Now, the ups: I liked the right eye and the nose-mouth region. I always have many problems with this. I like how the ear was drawn, the only problem I see with that is the one I already said. The hair is nice and flowing and the suggestion of the chest looks right to me.

About the stars: 5 stars in "vision" because I don't know if it's relevant here (it's an OC portrait, after all, so, I don't think it has to be visionary). I gave 5 stars, so it will not mess with the other fields.

3 stars and a half on originality because that's a common pose and I just felt bad giving 5 stars to it. But don't think that it's a defect in this art. Like I said above, it's an OC portrait, almost a study, and it does its job very well. I do this kind of drawing sometimes, and I know that, more than the originality of pose and of the technique, what really matters is putting the OC face on paper.

3 stars and a half because of the things I pointed. But don't be fooled, people, I don't think I can do any better than her. I suck at anatomy. I just like to be fair in my evaluations, so, I can't give more than that in this field.

5 stars in impact because I really liked his expression. I caught myself wondering how Janus could be, what's his personality and such, so, I guess the impact was just right.

Thanks so much for the critique! :huggle: I agree with what you said, now I look at it on the screen rather then my sketch bok his head looks like it's skewing to the left a lot, no idea why I didn't see that before >.<

I want to get better at putting things (like that ear!) in the right place before I try different poses/bodies and stuff ^^

I'm glad I could help. ^^

Anatomy is a pain to me, too (that's why my style is more cartoonish xD). I'm sure you will be able to master it soon, because most of your drawing already looks right. ^^
