maybe you're a little to hard on yourself. you aren't stunningly handsome but you certainly lean towards it. Your face is pleasant and you have strong features. Although i agree the Hawk will get you noticed. Your art is fantastic. Just keepin it real XD
There's a difference between "being hard on yourself" and "not being easy on yourself." I'm the latter. This is a very vague picture, that hides most of the facial features. My current id doesn't hide any of the details. [link] I actually made it precisely because I got a suspiciously high amount of positive comments about my supposedly good looks on this picture. Because you know... why should I expect something more than what I get in the real world? So that bothered me. So now I have a highly detailed id that doens't hide any of the flaws. It's sort of "no makeup" if you know what I mean.
But the notion that I have "strong features" is just a total lie, no offence. When I used to smoke and I bought cigarettes, the same cashiers would ask me for papers all the time, sometimes several times a week. Simply because my appearance is so 'average' that 10 seconds after I have interacted with a person, they have already forgotten that I was ever there. There are always those people whose face you kinda recognize, but you can't put a name on them. I'm that guy. That's why I took the mohawk. So that there would be something that separates me from the surroundings. Something that the human memory formation system can actually utilize to register human interactions into memory.
I could be a super spy. When a teacher does a role call for the class, and checks all 20 students to be present by calling each one by name, and then visually counts the people in the classroom, he gets the result: 19. When there is a nice offer for a case of beer for half price, one per household, I can get as many as I want, with consecutive visits, each time buying one case.
Well i won't argue with that but Just to let you know my "strong features" mean something totally different to the classical sense of strong features. What i mean is you have features (i.e. big ears, big lips etc.*not your features. just giving examples that are noticeable. But i have a tendency to notice the un-noticeable. I see what others don't because they look at the pretty face in the foreground of the photo while i see the guy in the back picking his nose. Please disregard everything in my earlier comment except the artist bit. So in closing "with great power comes great responsibility" use your power for good my child XD
From what I can see with this image, I think it suits you very well. I briefly toyed with the idea of getting an undercut, but it was a massive decision for me to even get my straight fringe turned into a slight side fringe, so I'm not bold enough to do things like this with my hair.
I've had it for 2 years now. And it helps me a lot in being "a person". I'm one of those people who are invisible. You see me somewhere, and 3 seconds later you can't remember what I looked like because I have no features. There's nothing worth remembering. A blonde pale skinny guy with grey eyes and maybe a stubble, wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans, in Scandinavia? But when I have a mohawk, people actually remember something about me. Sometimes even my name! And sometimes even some girls do.
There was this old show by James Cameron called "Dark Angel" -where there was a guy who was actually genetically engineered to have forgettable features. Sort of like a person whose appearance can't be registered into the human brain because it's too bland and boring. Even people who were looking for him couldn't recognize him in an empty room because he didn't stand out. It would be cool to be a supersoldier with no other strengths than absolute inconspicuousness.
I've never cared about what I look like. I don't buy clothes often so I'm way behind on any fads. I don't work out so I'm a scrawny skeleton. But I do have this hair just so that people would know who I am.
So, I read you don't like the word "pretty"? Okay, than "this looks handsome" to me!
No. Okay. I love the way you draw wtih Paint! I can't handle it, I would be happy if I could say "Hey guys, I know how to use Gimp- and it looks good!" So- you do a really great job!
Can I ask you something? How do you drw your pics? Do you make a quick sketch on paper and then you outline it in MS Paint? Or do you just doodle until you like your result ? And the way of shading is great, too- looks interesting, but good!
I can't draw with Photoshop or Gimp at all. Everything just ends up being a smudgy mess. I like the systematic nature of Paint. As long as you plan ahead exactly what you're doing, it ends up the way you want.
Recently I have discovered that I can sketch a small version of, for example, a person, then enlarge it and trace the sketched outlines with lines. If I try to draw it in a big scale the proportions get messed up because Paint doesn't have a zoom out function. Oh, and I use a tablet to draw, so I don't need to scan sketches from paper. Before the tablet I sometimes did.
This picture probably isn't the best example of shading. I used a standard pen tool and only a few colors.
