So, a fratricidal ancient Falmer and a Dragon war criminal are the 2 most pleasant people in Skyrim.

The lightness of his eyes makes contrast with the rest of the other shadows, congrats! :'D

You're getting better with the tablet each time I see you've done a new one - keep it up, because it looks amazing!:D

I really love how the texture to the skin came out. Very good work with the eyes and colours--great form definition as well. Keep up the good work!

Gelebor! :love:
I love how his piercing blue eyes stand out in the dark. :D

It seems you used the same (or similar) brush/texture for the skin and the hair. I recommend trying to keep the textures for each different surface different if you're trying to get some texture in your paintings. The brush you used works for the hair, but I recommend keeping the skin a bit smoother. :)
(I also still see a few black lines. A bit around the nose. and that line between the nose and mouth).

Oh. and I challenge you to not cover your character in darkness with your next painting. :D
If you do, then I challenge you to use reflective light or another light source.
I know it's difficult. But that way you are forced to figure out how to give shape to the entire character. Which will help you improve. :)

Also, I hope I don't give you the impression that I don't like these paintings. Or give you the impression that you're not doing it right or something. (I'm still learning myself...) I do like them. :D Just trying to help you improve, because you want to improve. So uh,.. if I'm criticizing too much, let me know. I'll shut up. :XD: It's just. No one else has the guts to criticize. So the heavy task falls on me. *don't hate me* I DO IT BECAUSE I LUFF YOU! :D
I just hope you find my pathetic attempt at advice at least somewhat useful. xD;

Ahem. I was really meaning to say that he has a life-like expression.

I'm definitely liking the new style you're going with. It adds to a certain element of emotion in it, very nicely done. :)

That's a very nice piece of artwork you've got there. And what a coincidence; not two hours ago was I meeting Gelebor for the second time, on another character of mine.
