Here's my take on 'Demon Prince'. I also attached the exploration I did for the character. I hope you like it.

Clean line work. I imagine you got the likenesses pretty accurately too. Good stuff!

Hey Marco! This is absolutely stunning!! You did an amazing job, that's for sure. However, there are a couple of minor details that I would adjust. This is just my own interpretation, and I don't have the reference so you can take it or simply ignore it. First, I would blur the shadow area much more. You can even blend the edge of the face with the bg so you can bring more focus to the light area and push even more the point of interest for the image. Just like you did with the hair in shadow. The ear placement seemed a bit off for me, I'm probably wrong but I don't feel like her head is so angled up so the ear goes that low. But again, I don't have the reference and you did, so I'm probably wrong. I'd also add a tiny highlight on the edge of the eye socket. It usally works pretty well, but this is just me making it up cause, again, I don't have the ref. I added a quick paintover so you could see my points more easily!! I hope this was helpful, and if not, well it was fun for me!! haha Anyways, you absolutely nailed it mate, keep up the good work!!

Just a few quick portraits (some of them stylized) that I wanted to share. I've always been more of a painter than a drawer so I'm pushing myself to get better at it. References from earthsworld on instagram and pinterest.

Hi @Rubén Frutos. I think it come out nicely as rendered exploration. I would choose something more simpler to focus only in the design of shapes. But it works too if you can do it naturally. Also, you used your reference but as reference, not just coping. So it is is well done in that aspect for me too. About the shape design, Im learning though. But what pops up for me is the background. You have spike-like shapes with directions that goes into several places. That's ok, but the background does, in a minor way, the same. Try to use a circle or square as background. Because of its stability it will probably be a good contrast in shape design. An mwwebe a change in hte value scale to make the character to pop up more would be better too. Hope it helps. Keep the practice up!

Lovely design. I'm not there yet so I'm not able to critique the design. I just find it quite interesting. Other than that, I notice the collar bone on the left is less protruding than in the ref photo.

Hey guys!! I wanted to share with you this way of practicing that I grabbed from @Ahmed Aldoori . Where he picks a ref and starts asking the question "What if?" in order to bring in the design to the portrait. (Here's the video of him explaining the method https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q2cS32ybTPU ) I tried to stay focused and keep always in mind shape design. Thoughts?

Thanks!! Well, the first thing that I noticed is that you are trying too hard to nail the gestures in your first lines. You need to losen up, it's ok if you have to do 3 or 4 times the same line in order to get it right. Start light and darken up when you feel it's right. Also, don't get caught up on details, like a finger or a nose, it's better that you use that time to observe the figure and get the general gesture of the it, especially in these fast drawings. I see that you captured pretty good the movement in a most of them, which is great, cause that's what gesture's all about. Proportions are a bit off, but that's something that observation and repetition will bring to your drawings.
