Life Mastery by DarkRapier Life Mastery by DarkRapier
This started out as an attempt to draw a proper icon for myself. Wound up becoming a head shot of Aaron.

I drew the chin too long. I have a tendency to do that. The nose is screwed up, but unlike colored pencils, markers are unforgiving. Once you mess up, you are screwed since you are unable to get rid of the mistake. You can erase colored pencils to an extent, but markers are permanent.

The scanner killed the colors, mainly the background. The background is more green, but the colors faded once I scanned it.

Aaron's eyes are actually dark blue, but I made them green here since I wanted to bring more flow to the colors.

Done using copics, watercolor, and acrylic paint. Watercolors are hard as hell, especially on paper meant for sketching.

His hat looks like it is floating.

Don't worry about long chins, just keep practicing, and make them just a bit smaller each time.

Awh this is amazing work! You have too much of a tendancy to be too critical of your artwork. This is far better than things I've drawn. The coloring is beautiful, and the character looks good! .. Don't feel bad over how it's drawn, its your style and it makes it look different and unique. Keep up the great work! *Annoyingly long comment*

Thanks. Long comments are fine. I like to read them.

I also have too much time on my hands from procrastinating.

I like how you faded out the clothes towards the bottom! and I wish I could have seen the full effect of the green...I'm sure it looks amazing

Thanks.

It does look a lot better in person. The colors for everything looks better in person. The scanner tends to either emphasize places where you colored harder or fade colors out.

You can get one for free as long as you have a Legendary Wizard that can grind in Waterworks. I got my mastery by grinding.

It is sad that you have no control of your money until you turn eighteen. I have a job that pays me, but all my paychecks go to my parents' bank account since they don't trust me enough to let me have my own account.
