King of Spades by avaunt
King of Spades
This is the third in my series focused on the characters of Community. This is Jeff. I had to draw him twice because I screwed up the first drawing but whatever. I'm alright with this one. I guess he's got a sniper rifle for a paintball gun sooooooo . . . this is a pretty intense game. Also I guess he's left-handed?
Used multiple references but I was lazy so they were mostly the first ones I saw.

My website is www.emmaolsen.com if anyone's interested in a commission.

Nicki Moore by RafaelGiovannini
So the face on this is gorgeous, first off. I think the lips could possibly use a bit more detail but I'd have to see the reference you used to be sure. The nose and eye and cheeks are all VERY well rendered and you captured the character well - I could instantly tell this was Emma Watson from the Bling Ring.

I think, though, that you maybe got so wrapped up in the face that you haven't given the rest of this the same attention. The shading and highlights on the top part of the hair is nice but the brush you're using is too chunky and your strokes not long enough, giving her hairstyle a choppy feeling when it should be long and flowing. On the shoulder it looks like the hair shouldn't be over the shoulder even though it is. I think part of the problem is shadows and highlights. Her hair has layers but only really on the top - I don't think you need as many fly-aways as you have or you need to at least use a small brush to show the fly-aways are individual strands and not whole hunks of hair. Really, you just need more strokes in the hair, I think. Right now it's got great movement but it doesn't fall organically and just looks chunky.

I also think you should probably crop this. The bottom looks very unfinished right now and the dress looks a bit more like a scarf because I can't see where it should curve around (I think if you crop it elaborating on that may not be necessary). The shading on her boob doesn't look quite right, either . . . it has a weird depth to it. Clearly you have an eye for detail, though, considering the face and neck so I think you just need to do some finishing on it or just crop off most of it and say screw it.

Honestly I think most of the problems here are with finishing more than you lack the eye or ability to fix them. As I said, the face is gorgeous and the arm is well-rendered, too, I just think you need some more time on the hair. If you don't want to do the body just crop it out, you only need the top of the shoulder, right? The background, though plain, is working well with this and I love the light beams across her face. You've definitely captured the look and mood of the character. Good work but keep going!

Drawing his hand was a nightmare. )= I'm still not happy with it but I'm wondering if I'm just being crazy at this point. haha
Anyways, this is Abed from the TV show Community! I'm doing a 'Fistful of Paintballs' themed series.

Sadness in Primaries by avaunt
Sadness in Primaries
This is another portfolio piece though I was able to get a much better pic of it. Jesus I've been submitting here a lot recently. I like that I can post and not worry about having people not see it FACEBOOK
I'm the subject . . . though something's weird about my hair and I look kinda bulbous somehow. I showed this to my mom and she said it made her upset. )= Sorry mama. I don't think I was upset when I made it or took the pic but I can't remember.

This is oils, by the way, and I wanted to do a more abstract and loose kind of thing since I usually am super realistic and detailed with everything.

Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
I graduated from Carnegie Mellon with a BHA in Art and Creative Writing and work as a freelance artist and writer. Most of my art is realistic or surrealistic, with a focus on dreams, symbols, and emotion. Much of my work, both art and writing, deals with overcoming depression and trauma - though sometimes I'll do lighter things, like fanart.
