Okay, longest I think I've ever worked on a piece o.o" . . . maybe, not . . . probably not >.>
Took me at least a week though ~ And yes, this is based off of Naruto with basically no references, please forgive me.
However, the character is my own ~ but I don't know who he is. :confused:

Okay so: I'm not quite sure about the proportions, mainly the nose and the hand, and also some of the details on the clothes, like, would they be shaded differently? If anyone has any suggestions, I would love it if you would comment with them :)

This is amazing. I'm going to start with something as simple as the skull and bones on the chest on the guy. Looks awesome you were able to make something that small stand out without trying. Then the pattern you used on the guys sleeves and chest appear to make it look like armour which is really hard to do.. Another thing is how you did the patch in the cape. It is very cool with a darker shade and a lighter shade used emphasising the point that it was a repaired item. Then there is the hair which is amazing and the eyes that seem to be cold and dark. The nose is in the perfect position and the hair band in the hair is exactly perfect and the sign looks awesome. The hands are AMAZING. I can't draw hands for nothing and you made those hands look like a real person's hands.

You did a really good job.
What do you think?

Nice work. You're off to a good start.
I've noticed a few things that could use some more work. The bridge of the nose is too wide and that's pushing the eyes too far apart. The chin is too small. His upper left arm is a bit too short. His fingers aren't curling around the form of the mask, so it makes the mask look flat. Also, a tip for the future-- you don't need to draw every strand of hair. It's a lot more convincing to divide hair into locks and draw those, then give each lock a little bit of shading and texture. You've done a good job with costume design, and he definitely looks like he'd fit into the Naruto world. The extra details like the patch and tear on the cloak and the skull-and-crossbones on the pouch are a nice touch.
