Colors seem a bit muted. Faded and less strong then they might be. The first thing that catches the eye though is the line work. Strong...

This is a great character design! I love how you play around with texturing here as well as color. It's simple and eye catching.

The only draw back I fee like is the flat white and skin tones without any shading. It does work well in terms of keeping this simple. And that is a good thing. It's just after those eye catching colors it seems like the work could use a little more depth. If it is meant to be a simple icon though, the simplicity works just fine.

All in all very good character design and great use of color to catch the eye.
First off- the sketchiness and use of more traditional are style brushes is very well thought out. I really like the shading as well, which isn't something you can get just by drawing over a reference. The different textures also work well to make it look more like fur than just digital brushwork.

The only reason I docked points for originality is this is a practice work, as was mentioned in the description. It's honestly a very good piece and I feel like could be a very good finished piece.

This is a very good start all said and done. Great job!

Dear ~Glimeron,

Congrats on placing 2nd in the :iconauthors-ink: contest! One of the prizes you can claim at any time is a 100% free commission from me :D It will be a full-color or black-and-white, traditional art piece. I can use pretty much any medium that's traditional art, other than photography or 3D stuff.

The subject can be anything of your choice: FanArt, Original Character(s), animals, fantasy creatures, trees--you name it and I'll try to draw it. Feel free to look through my gallery to see what I tend to draw and get a feel for my style.

I don't usually draw cars or robots or that sort of thing, and don't have much practice in it, but if you're dying for an ink sketch of Optimus Prime I'll try my best.

Let me know when you have an idea of what you want and I'll be able to give you an approximate date of when I can finish it. Congratulations again!
