Hullo! I'm here to give some feedback on this piece.
First off, the form of the figure is well done! I like how the fact that the character appears to be lanky gives him more of a business aura. Leaving the piece sketchy adds a nice aesthetic to it personally. The contrast between the light and dark is quite nice too. It gives off a mysterious tone.

For the shading, it looks like you used the airbrush tool? I think the fuzziness makes feel cheated. Using the airbrush, personally, I don't think it gives a nice look when applied (this is my personal opinion, there are many pieces that have used airbrush shading) it feels much more unfinished. Instead of the airbrush, I suggest using a soft brush--if you want a softer look--or the pen tool for a more sharp look. The airbrush tends to leave areas with open patches such as on the tie and belt if not careful.

Overall I really like the character aesthetic!

I always did like sketches. The shading really makes it stand out.

I have also. I've never been particularly good with shading myself. Shading and hands. lol.

Don't worry, a lot of artists struggle with those two things, including myself. XD I guess when drawing hands, break things down into shapes and for shading, watch speed paints to observe what strategies other artists use. :)

greetings from the projectcomment)

i like cartoonish style, the guy does give some detective associations) also, this wt
f stare is cute.
you'd bene
fit much more if you'd use less soft brushes for shading - it's counterintuitive, but try it some time) 
actually, at 
first i've thought it was a cute girl - she has a nice thin waist, her eyes have nice long eyelashes, and her blonde hair goes lower her ears) 
so, could it be mrs detective?)

Ahaha thank you!!! Although I realized I should have used a darker shade of gray instead of black oops xD 

And hahaha I actually created this guy a while back using several classic TV tropes!! That's probably why you recognize him from somewhere XDD
