I love lovelove love the way you did the full coloring... it looks realistic in the way you gave him discolorations, hair, wrinkles... it looks fantastic! Really makes me wonder... I'm looking at your character designs and trying to figure out how it is that you manage to make your men look... well... like men. As opposed to boys, or young lads. I've been trying to get a good way of drawing a male character of mine to make him look his age (28) without giving him obvious clues like ostentatious wrinkles and bags under the eyes...any tips? <:\
You have to pay attention to the details. First I advice you to draw from real life, look pictures of young people, children and adults and that way learn the difference of their faces. For example, the difference between an 17 year old boy and a 28 in general is about the shape of the face and the chin, the lenght of the nose, the space between nose and lips and details like that; the older the longer is the face (of course keeping the proportions). Play with facial features, maybe his chin could be a little longer than usual, and that will give him a more masculine feature. Try to learn those things and it will be easier.
