Just felt like drawing Marcus. :heart:
Something's wrong with his face... D: I must have tweaked it a hundred times and I still don't know what's making it look weird..
Love the sunset colors though. :aww:

Your use of lighting here is just phenomenal! I adore the sunset and I love the gentle touches of it upon Marcus too!

Yeah as someone kind of pointed out already, it could be anything about the face and what you feel personally might be off. I think if you moved the mouth and nose up a bit more, it might work and maybe made the mouth wider, but I am not sure. Honestly, I think because you change styles here and there (depending your preference) it can be hard to feel out what feels right for the style you're using. =) It doesn't mean it's weird but it just means it might feel different in your case as you're not like the lot of us and switch from realism to semi-realism to an anime like style. Which is never bad because again, it gives your gallery such variety in terms of what you choose. :heart:

Thank you :)

Meh.. that's how I started really, and then it felt the mouth was too high, like too far away from the chin. x.x Honestly.. I think the head shape is just so off that everything in it doesn't fit like it should. Guess I just really dropped the ball on this one. ^^; Well.. I seem to be dropping it a lot lately.. but oh well. XD; we all have our lesser moments I'm sure. 
yeah.. I think I switch because I can't make up my mind.. XD; I still prefer semi-realism but I'm not good enough at it, like I can never get those eyes to look realistic enough, the shape I mean. (I don't know what that's so hard?!), so I go back to a more anime look. At least it does give variety. :)

Usually it is the subtle details that make faces look weird

Sometimes it's the jawline, somwtimes it's the nose.

But the biggest culprit is eye shape and spacing.
