Ne-Yo Portrait by DeeShine Ne-Yo Portrait by DeeShine
Since Ne-Yo's new album, "Libra Scale", is coming out I decided to sketch him. For short, he's EPIC!!!.

Also, for a nice nose, eyes and teeth practice.

Tortillon
F, B, 3B sketch pencils.
Adjusted a bit using Photoshop CS5.

Critiques are SO welcomed!

It's a good work. Tones seem well done -- the anatomy and proportions seem accurate. The only thing I'd suggest is that you could shift to circular movements when doing the skin. Some accidentally heavier lines when you were shading around the neck are unfortunately a little distracting in an otherwise excellent piece. :-)

Awesome, lovin this. I recomend you blend some more tho, to make your line smoother. I use blending stumps, unless this is the style you like?
Either, way, I like this :)

I love this - the shading is amazing and great detail on the earing! But prehaps you could try and add a bit of depth onto the necklace, like shadows and shinny parts (Lol xD) and prehaps try and get more tones on the skin? Overall this is a fab piece!

I never heard of Me-Yo but he looks nice and very cheerful and I the drawing looks quite realistic. So that is good. I don't compare references to artwork.
One thing that I personally find interesting is when I can see how the face has been studied , how the drawing has been built up actualy. Sketch lines, help lines. That gives it a more personal and unique touch. Do you understand? Hope this is helpful feed back. And when you have time and interest I'ld like some feed back from you as well :)

you could smudge the shadow parts a bit more. Well, I can't see mistakes. Maybe the left eye be closer to the nose.
Oh my god it's so hard to explain in english I'm sorry =(
