    That loos really cool. Hands are excellent.
    Is that traditional or digital? I always assumed the illustration academy only allowed students to work traditional.

    I love the dude on the left. I think the dude on the right could do with maybe two more facial creases. Or at least more pronounced ones around the nose and eyes.

    Dude on the right has sort of a "tough guy with a young face" thing going on. Also, he looks still; it's probably the straight/parallel/horizontal lines that form his neck. It could also be the way his helmet strap lazily dangles below his face.

    My only problem is that the face is rendered differently than the rest... more "real" which makes it almost seem like the head was copied from somewhere else and placed atop this less detailed poster. Now, I definately know that isn't what you did but I'm just trying to get across that, currently the head and everything else seem like they don't belong in the same picture.

    that was a stylistic choice, napp. i can try to make it feel more attached maybe?
    the hands are also rendered like the head, basically i'm separating his body from his outfit and making the outfit scream
    he's all about image, much like all the other hip hop artists, but raps about his vulnerabilities quite a bit.

    I think you could blend it just a touch more than you have and the point would still get across.

    I'm not quite sure I got your intended point, though I don't really know much about him or his style so maybe if I had more context it would have made sense right away?

    Either way, my first reaction was "neat but unfinished"

    Yeah it feels disjointed and unfinished to me. Perhaps the better option would've been to render him fully and overtly saturate the outfit to get your point across, or something similar.

    I like the idea and there's no denying your skill, but it needs something more.

    Actually, the structure style and not the rendering is what's different. The head is really realistic whereas the body is really stylized.

    I don't necessarily have a problem with that though.

    edit: there's a few patches in the clothes where the coloring missed

    Well, I guess i meant "rendered life like" which included shading, detail and shape. But yeah, it wasn't specific enough to start with.

    I would almost have gone the other way - stylized the head and hands and super-rendered the clothing. I like the proportions, though.

    I dunno, I think that would give the complete opposite message she wants to convey.

    hey thanks for all the input guys :)

    I don't see how rendering the clothes and stylizing the face would make it better
    when it's the style of his clothing that is larger than life and sort of caricatured. i feel like that would completely confuse the message.

    I guess i was thinking it would make the clothing pop into the foreground, making it more 'this is what the person is about, this clothing here', and the face/hands would recede and become less important. At the moment, while the colours are definitely designed to push forward the clothing, I still find my eyes concentrating most on the rendered portions. They're just so much more visually interesting, whereas the clothing is (deliberately) flat.

    I thought she was trying to say that, regardless of his image, he's really about his personality, heart, soul, intellect- the things that are not artificial.

    He is real while his clothes are an exaggeration that don't speak of the quality of the content he provides.

    yeah what i like about him is the fact that he raps about his insecurities
    that behind the mask of this crazy hip hop inspired clothing, he's an intelligent, sensitive dude with normal fears and a normal upbringing.
