I think he's just pensive - but you're right, it kinda looks sad, somehow... D:

*o* I think I don't even have the words... This is such a perfect work on John I can't believe it's not a photo. :faint: :clap: :love:

I read in earlier comments, that you put more time and effort into his face - perhaps you can keep that up for future projects? I like the "rougher" works just as well - but here we can see your true potential. :)

Oh my, you're so kind, thank you! C: I'm happy to know you like it! C:
The pic (still Sherlock-related) I'm working on now is kinda similar, but to be honest I much prefer my usual rough style... This one is... boring? D: It's not the right word, but I feel I'm not adding anything to the pic, it's cold... Anyone could do it, with time and patience! C; 
But I'm still all mellow and relaxed after my Christmas holidays, and I have got some time to spend on each brushstroke... I wonder how long this will last! C;

Awww, of course you should always draw in the style you feel most comfortable with. :) And the rough style surely is more "unique" and more... well, YOU. And that is awesome. :D
You see, you CAN draw. Even with a rougher style - you still show how much attention you give to the little details, you make the anatomy correct and your characters are instantly recognizable. This is a rare talent, mind you. I've often seen great art with cute, handsome and/or beautiful popular(!) characters, where only clothes and hairstyle told me, who these characters actually were. Put them in another suit and change the hair-color and BAM! - I wouldn't recognize them as Thor or Loki or Iron Man or... and so on.

Please consider that this is only my opinion - which can be wrong and argued with!!!
For me, a "rougher" style (not yours, but beginners work!) was always something unfinished, something which needed improvement. I don't mean to belittle new artists - they can become truly awesome - but that needs time and lots of practice. Therefore for me, a clean , non-wobbly line is something to be desired. ^^;
The more cleaned up versions only show to me, that the respective artists put very much effort in their works - and that is what I truly respect about artists in general. Not their talent (yes , they have it and they developed it further) - but the effort and sedulity they put into each created picture.

Long story short: My comment wasn't meant for you to change your drawing style. Like I said, your other works are just as magnificent as this particular picture. :D And I don't think this one is boring or without life. It's still your work - only more cleaned up. :aww:

Oh dear, I hope you didn't think I was offended or anything! D: On the contrary, I really enjoy discussing about this kind of things, because art is wonderfully subjective, and what I like is not what others find appealing! C: And that's perfectly fine! C:

That said, I see what you mean (and by the way, thank you again for your kind words! C; ); my problem with "clean works" probably comes from the fact that my dad always spurred me to draw as rough as possible - and still, he thinks I'm not rough enough! C; So probably this, combined with the fact that I really like Secession art, leads me to enjoy not very clean artworks! C;

And thank you again! C:

Aaaww, dear! Everything is fine on my end. :) I like discussing these things as well, it shows me other points of view and new ways to approach things that might be better and easier than my "conventional" way.

Have a nice Weekend and good luck with future artworks! ;>

If i may take a guess, Names Chan, you spent a little more energy on this one (comparing to other similar portraits of yours)? I feel this one has been paid extra attention in details. (And i adore the simplicity in your other works equally!) Answer to your question in the WIP version, I do love this one as well! Let me stay silence and worship your talents for a couple minutes here! :3
PS: what a coincidence I have Ps CS6 and Intuos 4 too but my hand drawings are still nothing more than kid's doodles now >:-)

Namecchan Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2014
It's not like I've spent more energy on this one; merely more time! C; What I'm trying to say it that painting this John wasn't harder than other characters, simply I was in a mellow and relaxed mood, and I took my time with each brushstroke! C: I still prefer a rougher approach, though! D:
But I'm happy you like this final version! C:

And I think drawing/shading with pencils is harder than drawing using PS... I know it probably depends on habit, but I'm so used to colour with a tablet than doing so in a traditional way ends up being more challenging! C;
