THIS PAINTING. THIS DAMN PAINTING.
//faints

And now for serious: this painting is my first srsbsns lineless work and it took. me. ages. No lie.

While working on this I learnt that:
- My skills at painting according to a light-source suck. Big-time. Time for some practice, methinks.
- Anatomy? What's that? Also something to practice.
- Last but not least: FFFFFF- HANDS. I had to repaint dem mofos more than just once. HANDS, HOW DO YOU EVEN WORK.


So ... With that being said, it's not all negative. I feel like I DID learn loads from actually sticking to this piece and finishing it.
And I hope you guys like it!

I really like it. I agree with you on the light source and hands part, I literally can't shade when I paint anything and hands are a pain. e_e Everytime I try to draw hands, they look like claws. Oh yeah, also with Antomy. I probably haven't used at all in paintings. .D.

Thank you very much! 

And agreed, lighting and hands are difficult, but thankfully it's nothing a lot of practice can't fix.
One small tip that I've found to be helpful is to use references, be it looking at yourself in a mirror or looking at stock-photos on deviantART. c:

And on top of that, I do not appreciate you re-uploading one of my avatars and you will take it down. :|

... Seriously? If you think there is something wrong with the picture, you're always free to post a con-crit.
But "eww" isn't helpful. At all.
