I'm really impressed with your ability to draw in such a realistic manner. The anatomy in your drawings is spot on. How long did Hijikata Toushiro portrait take you? It's seriously good. The difference in quality between this, and your previous fanarts is pretty massive. The hair seems to be letting you down a bit. The eyes also seem to be missing eyelashes. If you want me to, I could link you to one of my favorite hair tutorials on dA. I'd recommend doing more of portraits such as this, until you feel comfortable with drawing anime characters in this style. Only then should you begin to mix in some slightly surreal aspects. I've seen enough art and art styles to say that many great artists started off with a style similar to the one you used to draw this image. It may not look as appealing as your Fassbender portrait, but that's because you're trying to develop something new. It'll take a while, but after some time, you'll discover that you have a certain style. Most, if not all, people do. It's just a matter of practice.

One surreal aspect can be the design of the eyes. The eyes are vital in setting the mood and portraying a character's emotion; they are essentially the mirrors of the soul. Since the style you're developing relies on realism to some extent, you can't draw massive eyes that take up over 1/3 of the face. You could, however, increase the size of the eyes just a tiny bit, add more vibrant colours, and perhaps some details in order to make them 'pop' a little. This is definitely something easier to show rather than explain.

I'm loving the Galileo fanart so far. The pose is great, and the scarf gives the picture a sense of flow. I really like the eyes, too. Looking forward to seeing you post the finished version ~

Alright, hopefully that wasn't too harsh, and I hope you got something out of reading this.

^ Thanks for the critique Aphrah, I'll talk to you about it in more detail later

I had no Internet for four days and have a lot of calculus that I left till the last minute to do so I'll just have to make a quick update and go do that now >.>

This is the completed Galileo fanart, done from the lineart I posted previously:

Small update, just a sig and a couple random gifs - I'm hoping to make anime gifs when I have the time to get back into 2D!



Spoiler for random newb-ish masha gifs for tumblr:


My PS skills are getting rustier and rustier, and less and less to do with anime :S

who the hell cares about anime when you have MASHAAAA?
And your graphic art skills, as in computer drawing, are getting better you're not getting worse just your interests are changing! Fabulous work as ever, and the Galileo fanart is lovely not such a fan of the sig...too blue and bright for my taste...but the GIFS are quite well done!
...and what is with everyone's tumblr obsession?EVERYONE. (excepe me, hehe)

Your artwork never ceases to amaze me Halad I've been thinking of hiring you for an artist position once Also, on your signature. I like the effects at the bottom middle, really eye-catching.

Been awhile since I've been in your thread again - been so busy lately.

Love your new sig, Halad-chan! Your blend of colour and lighting goes really well with the render. And your gifs of Masha are cute.

Ahhh, long time no update! I haven't been sigmaking at all recently, I'm focusing more on painting/drawing these days. That said, these are my latest sigs:



.

And, on Renn-kun's urging, I'll post the paintings I did (each is linked to DA)

Spoiler for paintings:

Thanks zebra! I think that one's my fave too, although I spent half the time on that compared to the samurai ^_^"

I just did another one, MASHA from a beer ad!



Edit: Another addition, Benedict Cumberbatch.

He he I have to say it looks quite very pretty and I like this draft better than the last because it's not as pink. Hmm, I remember from the winter banner contest that you had to make the text stand out more. How about pick a color from the render for it?

Well, keep it up ^^

I absolutely adore your drawings btw.
