Sylvain portrait - critique appreciated!

Hello everyone!

I am new to this forum and I'm delighted to be able to get in contact with some other artnerds, since I don't know anyone else with this hobby in real life. I'm going to go all out and ask you guys for some critique on my latest colored pencil painting.

I think it's fun to try to imagine my favorite video game characters as realistic people and paint them, so here is Sylvain from the game fire emblem three houses.

He is made with Caran d'ache luminence, pablo and some faber castell polychromos.

Welcome, Vinra!

Your portrait is beautiful with such an expressive face! It wouldn't be a total surprise if he winked at the viewer.

I don't have anything to critique. It is beautiful and I love, love, love the hair, and the eyes and the lips ... well, everything about it.

Excellent detail on everything. His eyes are mesmerizing. A beautiful piece. How long did it take you? Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Vinra, welcome to WC and the CP Forum!

Your Sylvain portrait is beautiful, and I love how you've made his hair look like flames, nicely thematic!

Re: Sylvain portrait - critique appreciated!

Thank you all for your kind words! I am currently trying to work on making hair better, it's just so time consuming. It took about 20 work hours, but the hair probably took longer than it should have since I still consider myself in need of improvement especially on that area.

I am super excited to share the next portrait I make with you!
