Yeah, that eye--I tried to adjust it using liquify but had progressed too much and wound up making him look super fish-eyed so I undid it and left it as-is for now XD; I actually have two sets of layers for his face. One set is the line art and the basic skin tones, and the other is the more finished piece. I duplicated the earlier layers and finished those so if I messed up royally I could always go back XD; Should've done that with the hair a bit more.
I stopped looking at the reference I was using a lot towards the end when I went shadow-happy around his eyes--the original had a lot more shadow around the right but I left it out for some reason. The toughest part of all was trying to make him look like Yuuji--translating a comic character into a realistic portrait can be sooooooo frustrating because there's not much to go on, if you know what I mean XD;
c-angel--yuuji.
Don't have a lot of time as I'm getting ready for work, but I agree with the chest--I went through a couple of costume changes and focused more on his face and hair than below his neck. I know the line's a bit harsh; maybe I can go back and adjust it if I can :) thanks for the critique!

oh, no....i just might have to try XD;
c-angel--yuuji.
I've always wanted to try and draw one of my characters more realistically. I think this took about 3 hours at the most . . . now I'm looking up hair and skin tutorials XD

I wonder what would happen if I tried to CG 'Nabe's massive afro? o_o;
c-angel--yuuji.
