HS - Dirk - head angle practice by ChibiEdo HS - Dirk - head angle practice by ChibiEdo

Dirk Strider - head angle practice

Sometimes I try to do something resembling realism. Usually that always fails completely. XD (yes even with refs). BUT THIS TIME IT TURNED OUT GREAT. At least I’m very happy how these turned out : D

The first column is close to the ref, then I edited the nose and mouth and in the third I also changed the eyes. I’m thinking about trying to draw something in that third style maybe. Dirk still looks adorable and that’s always top priority for meXD

Lastly I added my normal style Dirk for additional head angle practice. the up and down looking ones didn’t turn out perfect but good enough..XD

Refs: fav.me/d4fyp27 and fav.me/d4g3759

The most anime-ish one looks like Naruto to me... Maybe it's the hair, but I never noticed it before it people's Dirk works.... hmm...

Anyway, I love them o.o like *boom* <3

sorry if I come off rude now but I get the occasional naruto comment and I'm beginning to get fed up with them. I don't know if it's the hair or the little blushy stripes I always draw but to me naruto looks NOTHING like my dirk except for the hair colour and the fact that it's spiky. I wouldn't care much for the comparison if not for the fact that I really dislike how naruto's hair is evenly spiked in a circular motion around his head in straight angles (hard to describe what i mean <.< it's like hedgehog spikes or something? ) while I draw wavy spikes in varying lengths which I actually like. so the fact that my drawing of dirk gets compared to naruto's hair which I don't like always makes me kind of sad... anyway sorry for the ramble but I just had to get this out of my system at least once...

I'm happy that you like the sketches though : D thank you for the comment~

Oh I'm sorry, hun... I don't watch Naruto anymore, but when I was into it I used to see so many people doing fan-pics, and between the hair (spiked and color) it just kinda stuck me... I'm sorry that people keep comparing it, I think sometimes that certain people only see anime as Naruto, Inuyasha, and Studio Ghibli style-wise, but the connection still is just the hair... ((And I apologize if that peeved you off O.O ))

They're lovely, hunny. I love all the styles, even just the small variations in the middle two that make them different... it's awesome. I love them ^.^ and I just now realized, if you icon John? o.o *squee* cyuute :D

hm, I guess I like the third one most, but the three of them are pretty similar.

thank you! well of course they are similar, they are the evolution from the left style to something I actually like~ : D It was like some kind of study or something~

I adore the 2nd style, it looks pretty darn realistic :3
I love it, beautifully done!

I like the third style quite a lot. If you ever want to use realism, that's the one I'd go with too!
