REFERENCE: [link]

I understand I do have a bunch of Full-realism issue spots. :) But I like higher contrast which is why i added more highlights.

I really like the concept and idea for this work, is very creative.

Lips are specially beautifully rendered, however I believe overall the work is lacking skin texture and shading. Also, specially for eyes, lines are too hard, eyelashes& pupils just to mention some of those hard lines.

Let's looks at this photo of an eye for an example: [link] eyelashes are hard but not as hard is in your image, also due to the fact that your skin is almost lacking any shading, things don't blend as nicely as in the photo. Another thing I noticed is that I don't see the reflection of the eyelashes on the eyes, always when you look at an eye really close you should be able to see in the eye the reflection of the persons eyelashes. Another thing with eyes, is how the iris and pupil are rendered, pupil seems to hard on the center of the eye and the borders of the iris are also too hard, try blending things softly and working your way slowly to your darker shades.

Overall I think you should soften some of your lines and add more shading, take your time adding different shades and then blend them nicely keeping textures in mind. There's a different texture for skin, lips and eyes; analize those on the photo references you're using and then try to replicate them on your work.

This is very nice and creative work, I like it a lot, I think is just a matter of taking your time blending things more nicely.

Hope my critic was of any help. Keep up the good work. :heart:

I like this very much. The idea of mixing the different things together and pulling them all into one is a fantastic idea. I agree you do have some realism issues, but your concept is very unique and interesting. I really do like how you drew the lips, they look more realistic. Overall, I think you did a very nice job with this deviation.

I like this.

I was going to say something to you about making the eyelashes more realistic, then I looked at your references and realised that it is what the magazines look like.

Good work.

It seemed stupid not to look at what you were referencing from, especially since you provided the link.

On a different note I hate how magazines make women look plastic.

Hi, I'm sorry to point out that you are only allowed to submit one official deviation each week. Could you please pick which of your two pieces you'd like as your official submission? I'll move the other into the folder for the unofficial submissions. Thanks!

Oh i must have totally misread that. I wish that would have been caugth earlier, first week i did two My bad. So official is just one, you just get to pick whether its themed or not? and anything else that i do has to be in unofficial but i can do 2 of those? Keep the themed in the official folder and move Tetris Faces to Unofficial then, THANKS!

Hi! I saw you requested critique.
First, the anatomy is very good. I've looked at the ref and you've good it completely.
But the faces could use more dept. Especially on the skin, but also for example on the right eye, just above the nose. In the ref there is a dark shadow just under the eyelaces which misses in your version. And I think the few layers of shading as LunaPlina suggested would be nice.
I hope this helpes :)
