Quick feedback on the construction,
Whoa, thanks guys! Never expected to get a positive response here
That's so heartwarming!
@aprilshin uggh, can't believe I've missed such an obvious tangent!
Thanks, good eye here! As for the arm's pose, I thought of that at first but it would cover my expression and I want to show some kind of supriese or embarassement on his face. Like he was caught doing something wrong. Thanks for the suggestion though! Those are always welcome

usually don't struggle with hands that m
I really love the "line of action" of the drawing. Just a question, is he standing on his tiptoes? or is he floating?
I'm only a beginner, but I see so much life in your constructions. The lines are really dynamic and it conveys a lot of movement. Love it!
Ugh, I really need to leave ya all with more information next time!
Yes, @Maxi-Silva, the guy is floating
Gonna indicate that by showing a proper cast shadow underneath his feet.
Oh, and thanks, @ShannonBiondi! I am really glad someone likes it at this stage

@IgorWoznicki I agree with everyone else who's said that your construction looks lively and well-structured. It makes me want to see what it would look like after the details have been added.
I also like @aprilshin's suggestion for the placement of the hand - I feel like that change would further enhance your pose.

This is really solid (no pun intended hehe). Perhaps the only thing I could see is the bended right thigh seems to have the same length as the straight left thigh behind it. It's really not a big deal though. There's plenty of gesture and 3D-ness so I think it's going to look great!

Again, thank you all so much for positive reactions and some feedback!
I pushed the artwork further today and I intent on finishing it tomorrow, thought I will giva ya all on update!
You guys have done enough already but I dare to ask ya' all for some more feedback on this guy ( I quite like him, although I didn't at first! ).
As for what I've changed, made some slight adjustments to the leg that appeared too thick and moved his arm a bit closer to the face to further exaggerate the wiping his mouth thing. I still don't want to cover his face and expression, so I don't know If I want to push that even further.
I am unsure about the hair I wanna go for. I think I like the flame hair the most but the bald one looks more like nosferatu hence more like a vampire...Ahh, I dunno, you can tell me your favourite!
Besides that, I am not sure about the perspective and construction of the bottle. I am also thinking about replacing the hip-flask with a bottle similar to the one he carries on the back. Also, I've lost the dimensionality of his right arm, I believe.
The clothing may change a bit as I go so if ya got some ideas, suggestions or pointers to make in that case, feel free to do so!

I love the character and the pose. The line work is looking really nice as well.
I think it was mentioned already, and you mention it in your last post, but I do think having the arm a bit higher would help. It is a bit difficult to read here that he is swiping his mouth. Maybe you could also have a bit of blood dribbling onto his coat?
As far as hair, I like the first as I think it helps with balance composition.
I hope this helps!
@IgorWoznicki Omg I'm in love with the tattered clothing texture and the huge bottle on his back! For the right arm, I think if you reverse the direction the folds are going and bring his elbow out a little more, it may help bringing it forward.
Honestly I don't even know if that's any better, haha. For the hair, I do like the fire hair, but maybe it could be blowing in the wind like the hair on the left? Basically a combination of the two.
I love this character, by the way! And I hope you create a comic/cartoon/anything with him because I'd love to know his story.

@IgorWoznicki I would change the belts which holds the bottle, over breast like x would be ok for the bottle now, or if you like to have only belt in waist, ... forget it, I didn‘t see the breast belt...
Though I will share the final result with ya guys :smiling_face_with_open_mouth_smiling_eyes:
Thanks for all the help ( I didn't change all that much but it's still better than nothing! ) and encouragement! I am not the biggest fan of this one, it's definitely not at the top of my game and I felt like discarding it but all the nice comments made it much easier to push through it.
Ultimately, I kinda like the bottle which is funny because this sketch got createad after "I feel like drawing a bottle" thought popped into my head
Feel free to leave some extra feedback If you see something worth improving. I'd love to hear some more thoughts!
Oh! And @aprilshin, there is no comic/animation coming (unfortunately) but I can give ya my idea for the character! He's basically a vampire who used to be royalty (hence more elegant clothes) but he has escaped his birthplace after he was bit and now he just kinda strolls around the world, carrying a big blood supply in case he runs our of it during his journey. Nothing impressive, really!

This looks really good, @IgorWoznicki! The character himself, the bottle, the rendering, the composition - everything works, in my opinion. Nicely done.
@IgorWoznicki This is so awesome! Love all the details and I especially love the character's backstory! Thanks so much for sharing this with us!
