moar realism practice XD by TixieLix moar realism practice XD by TixieLix
Been getting back to traditional art lately, and still practicing for that comp submission.

For all intent and purposes, I wanted to focus on imagining Link's facial features in a more realistic style, hence why I left the rest as unshaded linework. I'm not sure whether I would dare try this realism thing on another character other than him and Vega, and I certainly hope I pulled it off better this time than the last when I unintentionally made Link look like a little boy >.<" He's always a man in my head LOL

Apologies again for the bad photo skills. I tried to sharpen the image in photoshop, but not sure that worked too well >.>

I think I love the background the most here, though the sketch is wonderful. The off-white background adds a sepia quality I have always enjoyed in art.

It looks good, but it bugs me how he has such a small nose.

Thanks! Yeah I know the rest of it is a bit off - my main focus for this was the face hence why the rest was really sketchy, but I'll remember to take note for next time ^^

Ho....wow that is gorgeous :faint:

That face. Oh my, that face. Wow. That is one sultry stare, my dear. You did a phenomenal job on that gorgeous face of his (look at those beautiful locks! :love: ). Especially those eyes. Oh God, those eyes. And lips. :heart:

My apologies, I normally don't sound like an idiot when commenting on incredible work. Guh...

Great to see more pencil/traditional work from you, looks very elven, kinda reminds me a bit of his soul calibur 2 look+ twilight princess. =)

Nicely done. The hilt of the sword is kinda short, but the main focus is the face, it is not a big deal.
