The Stranger in the Mirror by Negshin The Stranger in the Mirror by Negshin
Another work in progress... I wanted to finish this over the weekend but I was away for the DA birthday meet.

It will definitely be finished within the next couple of days for sure because the really fun parts for me are doing the cracks...

UPDATE: Finished, yup, the cracks were a lot of fun XD

For some unknown reason, I LOVE doing cracked/torn/ripped effects [there are some in almost every single picture that I have ever done] and a mirror is the best thing ever XD

Mikalo... again... because despite being a difficult character to draw, I just love him too much. He is a real challenge to get right so I am always testing my abilities with him ^^;

I was going to add all of his scars [he has a fair few ^^;]... but then I thought of leaving him as his much younger self. He would probably be looking at the mirror differently if this was the older Mikalo.

I learned a new word after showing the earlier wip version of this to a friend:

Ah thank you... I don't feel confident enough to do tutorials yet. I would say best advice I can give is to look into studying real guys (anatomy is really important XD). Go look at pictures of guys, lots and lots of pics and reaaaaaally study them (LOL best assignment ever XD). Look at how their features/muscle structures are formed, how the facial structure works etc. Try to draw/paint them and don't give up if the first few attempts look rubbish, the key is to keep at it. Once you're feeling comfortable with doing the realistic guys, start playing around with how features could be changed to stylise it (for example, I tend to draw larger/narrower eyes than normal, fuller lips, stronger jawlines, leaner figures that belong to certain heights/shapes etc).
Large part of it would be to have fun and to have realistic expectations. It'll take time but as long as you're enjoying what you're drawing, before you know it, you've learned so much already :XD:
