John Egbert by DeepChrome John Egbert by DeepChrome
Another Homestuck character portrait. I had this one lying around for a while as pure lineart before I decided to go back and expand it in the style of the Dave and Rose portraits. Then I colored it.

PS. The Wrinklefucker is kind of a fun weapon to draw from reference. :D THIS IS NOT AN IRONIC STATEMENT. Or is it?

Enjoy.

EDIT: Fixed the hand, his fingers were just too damn small.

As was stated before, the hand is quite small. Like, mini-hands. John looks very nice though~! : D And I don't know if it's intentional, but the slight slant he's at gives him a sort of feeling of movement, like he's leaning forward while he's walking. It looks really nice, and makes the piece more interesting. : D

I went back and fixed the hand, mostly due to the critique I got it, and because I didn't like it.

Let me know if it's still too small, which it might be. :nod:

And thanks on the slant. I wasn't intending to do it that way, and drawing sometimes causes me to make things slant a bit anyways. To find that it worked for the piece is a nice bit of serendipity.

His hand's a bit small, but damned if he don't look good in that suit. >w<

And I think that's a very IRONic statement.

Hehe.

Thanks. :

Yeah I was trying to make the fingers bigger, but it does look off. Probably due to a glove making a hand even bigger. :shrug: Might fix it tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up.

He has lady fingers right now. XD
And yeah, gloves do make hands look even bigger.

Still better than what I could do!

Sometimes that's the same with me. I'm a procrastinator, though I've pretty much reformed from the way I was 2 years ago. Eek.

Anyways, what's your take on the hand now? I just fixed it up. :D

I'm still working on it. ^^;

Hm... Better... Still seems a little small. If I wasn't looking, I wouldn't have noticed.

Heh, some things I still have to work on. It's more like consciously deciding "no, I'm not going to put this off, because I know where it takes me."
