Scar Portrait by Bimmerd Scar Portrait by Bimmerd
Pfff this took me damn long but I'm really proud of it.
I tried a kinda realistic style. Of course, there are still things not right but I think this drawing give me a bit more motivation to try realistic.

This is my first and favourite character Scar.

So you wanted a crit ;)
Here you go!

First of all I notice you have practiced some on the more realistic style. This worked out rather good. I would just like to give a little extra info on what to improve if you would like to continue this style.
First of all, I think that his right eye is just a tad off, the underside should be be less angles towards the top, because you can't see all of the eye and so, you won't end on the -almost- upper line of the eyelid.

Secondly, this is a detail, but it might be helpful getting also some detail in the nose structure, because it feels empty when looking at it right now.

Then about the fur structure, it's good you still use the tot al structured color base and then use in an overlay some little structural hair strands, but don't only use one color for this, use the darker brown also to make the transition between the two colors. Especially on the the neck. Don't be afraid to use some lighter hairs on the dark brown base, because that might just give it that extra realistic edge.

Then, the lighting seems a bit off. Try to get one real source and base all of your back shades and light on this. An example are the ears, you don't really know where the light is falling on, so it all seems soft and without much detail in it. To give the image that extra, try using real light almost whitish brown colors, because now it's just to little lighting you have done on this image. The same for the dark shade, just get it that almost black look just on the edge of the ear, under the jaw-cheek fur, just to let it stand out more.

And now after putting all minor flaws, please, just when you make a necklace for Scar, please give it that realistic look too. If you don't know how to shade metal, check a tutorial, I've read them too and it does help.

Not that I'm a pro, but hope this helped.
I couldn't help much on the anatomy really, because I'm a human-artist.

But still, love the piece, realism is hard, but you gave it a good try! Hope you'll continue, because this has potential. :)

P.S. Sorry bout the impact-rating, but it's a really undynamical pose you drew ^^'

Oh my god that just blew my mind! The fur, it's aaaaamazing and the eyes are so realistic :iconyesyoucanplz: As for a critique, the only thing I could remark would probably be the snout. The proportions of the skull itself are fine, but the nose and mouth are a little big. It does add a lot to your unique style though, so it doesn't have to be negative :) Maybe you could also try to add some basic lineages for the fur before adding the precise details (god it's hard too explain, please tell me if you don't understand tho <3)

Yeahh that's true, his nose and mouth are a big large.
I know what you mean, yes I should do that indeed. In Paint Tool SAI making fur was so much more easier but somehow SAI won't recognize my tablet QnQ

How/where did you download SAI in the first place, btw? I was considering to check it out but I'm a little cautious with :pirate:'ing at the moment :I
Reply
:iconbimmerd:
Bimmerd Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
On Pirateproxy :pirate:
Just search for the SAI that was downloaded the most, than it's usually safe ^^
But don't know if you 'heard' already but sai is working again thanks to Lena's awesome way QuQ (even though it's pretty simular to what I already tried, I'm just glad I tried that way xD)

Got a nice new thing to do for Sam, since he never really had a story where he belonged. I'll transform him into some kind of domesticated cat but than still with the cheetah wild cat look so he can live in 'my house at nightmare avenue' just as Scar lol 8P

it wasn't flying xD unideer :D
But that's a bit gone xD and besides, it was a bit too big for the house and his hooves would damage the floor c.c

could you perhaps come online :3?
