Chrys, ~Siriusstar76's character, he has such a beautiful face, he was such fun to paint~! I believe ~Siriusstar76 will have a doll (BJD) sculpted in the image of this painting, so that's really quite exciting!
is this supposed to be a boy? or a girl? i got kinda confused on your description. i thought it looked like a girl. anyways, amazing work, i am totally a fan of your art! seriously, your one of my favorites on deviantART!!!!
Hm, this character is interesting....to me he definitely has some female touches, but that actually really helps the image and makes you want to know more about the character.
however, I think the arm really looks off. I would not actually be able to hold my arm like that; if I tried to grab a book to my left, my elbow would not be point outwards, but go more towards the centre of the body. without that the proportions don't seem to be right. Also I feel like the vest needs a few little creases here and there, to look more credible...its texture is really well done though, that looks pretty neat lastly I would love to see the hand a little more refined...I understand that your focus is on the head and face, but bringing it up a notch would nor harm I think....anyhow! I hope you do not mind my critiques, it's still a nice piece
To various commentors: I did specifically ask for him to be androgynous because the doll heads I am going to have sculpted from this gorgeous portrait need to work (with minor modifications) for both Chrys and his daughter. Katie did an AMAZING job at drawing him exactly the way I asked. Thanks again!
