Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who is craziest of them all?
In your glass that's so reflective,
I see all the ways I am defective.
You speak the truth, I do agree,
But why are you always mocking me?
All the tears I won't cry,
I really wish that you would die.
Though you shatter and crack,
I always know you'll be back.
There's nothing in me you can't find,
Or have I simply lost my mind?
I'll break the glass and turn away,
And fight you again some other day.
Mirror, mirror, around the floor,
Will there ever be an end to our war?
Here, have some depressing/crazy Matthew :U
the poem just seemed appropriate >3>
Matthew is mine <3
Hello there, this piece definitely caught my eye for several reasons. First of all, I really like the expression on the character's face. Did you use a reference picture? It looks like you really captured a very human expression and emotion in his eye, and just his overall posture. I also really appreciate the values that you're starting to play around with, nice use of a light source! I think it's interesting that you chose to flip the image and lighten it considerably on the left side. I'm sure that has relevance to the character's personality and the meaning of the piece, but I think it might have had more impact if you also maybe varied the color scheme? Just a thought. It looks like you have a pretty good grasp on proportion and anatomy, what I think you should really start to work on is emphasizing the darks and lights of the skin tone and playing around with varying the colors in his skin. If you look at your face in the mirror, it's obvious that your skin is much more colorful than just one tone of one color. You could also play with adding value in that choker and the metal. Also, the hair needs more life. I know it can be intimidating to try to create a realistic texture in hair, but once you get the hang of it the payoff is well worth the hours of practice. Checking out some tutorials on dA should definitely help with that. Also, if you look at someone's hair, it isn't separated into pointed chunks. I used to draw hair like that all the time until I realized it just didn't look like hair. You definitely have the skill level to start challenging yourself more. You have nothing to lose, go for it! Hope that helped!
