Hiruma - Commander from Hell by angelinoshi Hiruma - Commander from Hell by angelinoshi
Fixed the hair <3

OMG, an actual art update! YA-HA!
This is what comes from getting into a new series and having withdrawal because it ended a couple weeks after you really started getting into it. For those of you who don't know, this is Hiruma Youichi from Eyeshield 21, and manga and anime about football. Hiruma is not like any character I have ever come across before...he's the type that he's wonderful if he's on your side, but evil incarnate if he's not! XD So yes, do check out ES21 if you really dig sports mangas, and even if you don't, check it out anyways since the characters are awesome *_*

Anyways, oddly enough, this started out as just something purely for practice and experimentation since I never drew in Corel Painter before...heck I never drew something straight into a program before, so this was really fun <3 Soon, practice became speed painting, which morphed into clean up and so forth....
Originally I was going to experiment coloring in Painter, but I broke down and brought it into Photoshop since I'm more familiar with it. But, I do plan to practice more with Painter in the future.

I simply adore this. Ah, who can hate the commander from hell besides MOST of the people he has blackmail on... Anyway my crappy constructive criticism is just his neck is bit big, looks like his is somewhat sideways, the left shoulder is bit wrong portioned from him to be sideways. I have trouble with positions too, so I got used to spotting them DX Other than that the face is absolutely defined with your very skilled style, totally great for using a program your not use to, and the COLORING! Well, totally in my favorites~

Okay, I start with the critique, before I forget! D:

The back of his hair. The spikes are a bit too defined, and the lines all go in one direction making it look a little stiff. So I'd say vary the line direction a bit more to give it a softer, more "hair-like" feel. :3

CRITIQUE OVER! Now I shall dote on your color schemes and how you captured his crazy grin perfectly. :'D Love those skin tones; it gives the picture a very hot-blooded feeling, which fits his character to a T (from what I understand of him, anyway... e.e; ). I'm so glad you're drawing again! :iconjarryplz: Keep it up, man!

Thanks so much for the critique as always and yes I agree about the hair [pokes random spikes] XD I can always fix that sometime in the future I think
