Amon - Realism by SilverThowra Amon - Realism by SilverThowra
First time attempting realism in earnest. Something's off about this painting but I can't tell what :( Would love some criticism.

Used a photo of Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore in Vampire Diaries as reference. Gotta love that show, and c'mon let's admit it, if Avatar got turned into real action Ian Somerhalder would be the perfect actor for Amon. Seriously that guy just oozes the 'sexy bad boy' vibes :D

Yes, I think you can tell, I have a crush on Amon...

I don't know how to do critiques, but I'll give it a shot!

Beautifully coloured- very well done with the lighting! An excellent piece of art overall. You have thoughtfully balanced this picture out with the symbols of the Water Tribe and the Equalist Revolution (nice touch!).

As for making this realistic-looking, I say, well done! The face is in great proportion and the skin colouring is quite realistic, especially when it came to the blue lighting. There's one thing that's slightly off though. His right eye is slightly bigger than the left. I think that's what's looking a bit off.

His hair looks realistic- strand for strand- but I think it lacks just a little something to add to the realism. The styling of it is very suitable though!

I think more detail on Amon's outfit should have gotten a little more attention. Maybe add some roughness to his jacket front to add some texture.

That's all I've got. Well done!

I am sorry, did you heard that? well, that was...THE SOUND OF MY OVARIES EXPLOITING!!!!!!

THIS IS JUST SO FUCKING PERFECT!!! IT IS EXQUISITE!! MAGNIFICENT!!! SO FUCKING BEAUTIFUL!!!

I have seen that some artist do not like people telling them that they like their art, because it was not made for them. Please don't get upset for this:

I FUCKING LOVE IT!!! I LOVE IT SOOOO FUCKING MUCH!! I AM GOING TO STEAL IT AND PUT IT AS MY BACKGROUND!!!!

I LOVE YOU; MARRY ME!!!!!!

This looks really cool! Small critique would be that his nose is rather small for his face and if you look at the iris/pupil sizes, the left one is bigger than the right. Otherewise a really great first try at realism ^^

Yeah, I've noticed now that his nose is kinda narrow compared to the rest of his face...definitely something to work on in the future. Thank you for pointing out my mistakes!

GIIIIRRLLL You are so good at faces! And realism! Keep up with it :D And this is a great Amon!
Critique wise, the only thing I'm picking up is the lips. It looks like they're shifted ever so slightly to the left? I think his face might align better if they were bumped just a few pixels to the right :) Maybe the chin too.

You're right about the lips/chin...I just drew a line down the center of the face and things aren't lining up ^^; Thanks so much for the advice!
