Very lame title. I don’t have any idea what to name for this piece. This is the latest semi-realistic piece. Done digitally. Whew, it seems like forever.. I’ve always like to paint/draw guy in these type of clothing.. :XD: I thought of uploading the non blurry version but it looks rather rough. ^^; (that’s what I thought.)

Sometimes, I wanted to paint it more 3d realistic style like Feimo and Heise. But I don’t understand why my painting is always so 2d and flat.. I even desaturate to check the light sources of the image and fill in more shadows, mid tones ... Perhaps it’s the color that I use.. (I just can’t handle colors well) It doesn’t stands out.. Always looking so anime-ish color.. Perhaps I’ve over-used the blending options?! I hardly ever use dodges or burn too..

View here for the close-up :pointr: [link]

Just hope you all will like it. =)

Time taken: (?) days.
Reference: Feimo’s illustrations. The sims 2 images.

:heart: Come, critics and comments are most very welcome. :heart:

*heise's and *feimo's works are brilliant as it comes to details but overall they're flat so don't judge yourself so harsh ;) However *feimo makes her works more 3D but still they have very limited palette as it comes to the skin so figures look flat and plastic, no textures on the skin and that's it. See, it's the matter of colors, exactly. You shaded face with one color palette but it's good to use some bluish cold dark tones for shadows - then the light will magically pop up. General rule that I stick to is - cold shadows of purple, blue and green and warm lights of orange, yellow and pink. Also it's good to use this trick - while shading face, in the time you just slop colors to find shapes, use very light green and turquoise and when you'll be blending colors these very light, odd colors will disappear but still they will add some more variations to the skintone. Skin is not only pink, peach or brown, it has way more colors on it. In this image I'd add bluish and dark cold violet shadows on his face where the deepest shadows are, especially because the outfit is bluish so it reflects on the skin. Some very subtle pink on the cheeks would make his face more 3D. Classical, yeah, but very subtle color, well blended with the rest, that is. As for the blurry look - try not to overuse soft brushes and smudging with round brush. For smudging I use default PS scattering brush with option "fingerpainting" checked and generally I forgot about airbrushes :D I use hard round brushes with 100% opacity and flow and just blend colors playing with opacity, only in final stages using the smudge tool.
Here I made a quick paint over your image, I hope you don't mind ^^; but it's better to see yourself than just imagine [link] I just added some more depth to the face and still - it could be better but that was just to show you what I was talking about.
