    Actually getting somewhere? Little help, you guys... :(

    Looks like you are starting to just obsess over individual features- the eyes, the area under the cheekbone- and as a result they're becoming a bit blown out and exaggerated when you step back and look at the thing as a whole. Example, look at the eyes- dead white. They aren't taking into account the shade afforded them by the eyesockets, which make them appear to glow and pop out unrealistically.

    Sure, these bits and pieces might be refined, but you need to be paying more attention to everything that is NOT a feature, the overall form, the overall light. Pay attention, for example, to the area between the bottom of the nose and the top of the lip- the light would indicate that a shadow from the nose would be cast over part of that area. Where is it? Everything has to work and make sense together, not just the parts you decide to take particular interest in. If you find yourself obsessing over tiny areas, just walk back 3 or so meters from your monitor and look at it, so for a moment you can only see what's going on in the big picture.

    Also, in terms of design, since this is such a humanoid kind of design in a basic sense, you run the risk of things becoming ambiguous as to what is intentionally non-human and what will just read as "off" to the viewer. Particularly here the design of the eyes, it becomes unclear if the circle of shade in the sockets is supposed to be shade or a discoloration of the skin, since the light on the overall form is not put forth as clearly as it might. In my example I tried to pull it back to a more 'humanish' kind of look, but this may not be what you were aiming for at all, I just had to guess which direction you were going for- and that's the problem, the viewer should never have to guess your intention when it comes to the rendering of form.

    Also, short aside: I'm kind of sick of seeing all these paintings with palette splotches all over them, because it seems more often than not the artist sticks to it so damn rigorously that it starts to feel like they think sticking to their arbitrarily defined initial palette is more important than what the final product, or reality for that matter, actually friggin' looks like. It's supposed to be a TOOL, not a GOAL, guys. If something needs to be darker, don't be like "but I can't go darker my palette doesn't go that dark" or "maybe I should add a darker palette splotch", JUST PICK THE FUCKING COLOR AND DO IT ALREADY, JESUS! Who GIVES A DAMN if the color is on your palette splotch array or not, good lord.

    Maybe that's not as helpful as I was hoping to be. :?

    EDIT: Man, what, I thought I edited this post! confused.gif

    I wanted to thank you, Bacon, for your valuable help... :) I don't treat the palette all that strictly, I just wanted a picture with less dramatic lighting... which, in retrospect, wasn't a good idea. And I wanted him to have normal eye sockets.
    I guess I'll have to work on references more :/

    Sorry since this is the third time Ive posted the same piece, but things took a different turn than I originally intended and would really appreciate some feedback to see if I'm heading in the right direction. Almost done, will probably spend an hour or so tomorrow refining it and cleaning things up. Right now it's real messy.
