Je le trouve très bien réalisé.
le style et la technique utilisée pour les cheveux est vraiment intéressant.
le regard grave de Thorïn Écu-de-Chêne est bien fait.
le seul reproche : le haut du front est trop pâle je trouve, mais ça donne un style.
Dessin réussi, bon travail, bravo continuez !

"I find him(it) very well realized.
The style and the technique used for hair is really interesting.
The grave glance of Thorïn Écu-de-Chêne is done well.
The only criticism: the top of the forehead(front) is too pale I find, but that gives a style.
Successful drawing, good job, bravo Continue! "

Holy mother of god the level of detail on this thing is amazing. Wonderful. Outstanding, Awe inspiring. I rated you low on originality just because this is not an original portrait, instead being based off of another photo, definitely not a con, since I'm guilty of the same, but just had to be accurate. You blow me WAAAAAy out of the water insofar as skill and talent are concerned, so I can't really give you advice. Keep doing what you are doing, because it works. fantastically. Well since this thing has to be at least 100 words, I'll just keep complimenting the portrait, wonderful use of highlights, and the texture on the skin turned out fantastically, his mouth looks photo realistic, and the jacket must have been a pain to sketch, regardless it turned out fantastic, and I'm interested to hear how you managed that fur effect.

This deviation proves that braids can be bad ass on a warrior! Awesome work!
I hope it is okay. This deviation has been featured on the admin widget on Ribbons-and-Braids. I would like to feature it for an extended period of time. I will remove it if you don't want it there. Thanks!
