Genius and Madness by shadowfire-x Genius and Madness by shadowfire-x
I couldn't just leave Gate alone for too long... I love him so <3 Here he is with some undoubtedly genius project in the background (translation: I got lazy on the background). I wanted to take a crack at better facial expressions.

LOVE that maniacal, confident smirk! It's so FITTING of Gate. <3

And ahh, the unkempt hair of a genius. His hair is superb. Definitely a favorite, this one has exemplary attention to detail, despite the BG... xD

Yay! Someone finally recognizes his messy hair for what it is! Heh.. well.. it's not really unkempt.. just hard to keep down without an entire DuPont chemical factory.. XD

OMG he looks so...devious!!

xD I can't imagine what he's got up his sleeve this time.

Great work with the facial expression! : D I knew that referring you that book would be a good idea. :3 This is amazing! Early try or not!

Gate can never get enough love.

I can't seem to find many things to crit on! The more you draw, the more I'm tapped out of c&c XD

I guess the back of his hand looks a little short. I think it's supposed to be like that because of perspective, but that's not getting across to well. It could possibly be fixed with shading, but I'm not sure. His fingers seem a little off as well. They look a bit cut off, instead of bent in. Probably be fixed with shading, too.
Well, since I already mentioned it so many times, I'll talk about...the shading!

You have gotten...AMAZING!!!!

It could have been more dynamically lit, I suppose, since the bg and all. Or could have some different colors mixed in, but eh, I can understand if you wanted to skip that. This was more of a focus on expression. :]

Please keep drawing!!! It makes me so happy to see a pic from you!!

Aww.. thank you! And, I actually have no idea what he's planning. A person of mere mortal brain, such as I, could probably never comprehend it... whatever 'it' is... x.x

Needs. More Attention. This turned out great! You did such a nice job on the hair. :3 I love his expression. X3 Did you use a reference? It's funny, I was thinking before that it looked funny without his other eye, but now that it's all done and colored, it really doesn't. My one crit is that I think your shading could have been blended more in a few small areas, like on his ear and under his none-visible eye. The shadow seems slightly spotty there, too- like, shouldn't it meet the eyebrow? Man, I love his teeth, though. You know, it's about this time that Menolly would come in and throw a wrinkled up ball of paper at his head or something. XP

I actually did use a reference. I have a book of facial expressions that Silv recommended to me. It works great!
