Oh my god, this is awesome. ^^ The colors are beautiful together :)

Not on your oc but the other black, red, and white parts, maybe you could make it a little bit darker like a light grey, something like that. Your oc's expression doesn't exactly fit with the title, still wonderful [as always]. You could have also probably made it a little more bloody, you know if blood doesn't bother you. It was a little hard to make out what it said on the left, I actually thought it was on of the black, red, and white bloobs.

I hope this helped :D

Sorry if I did something wrong this is my first critique...

This is a really beautiful work, don't be afraid to dive into something different because your afraid of losing your fans or being deemed weird or anything. As an artist it's better and opens the box you have been stuck in.

if you do different things so I emplore you to do different things like this. It helps you to step out and do many different things besides the comfort zone you been in so I suggest works like this, not just dark but, realism, still life, Architecture, backgrounds, soft themes, dark themes, mature, all of the many possibilities! don't be just stuck in one place because it hinders you as an artist and only has one way.:boing:

This is such a stunning piece, I was like this is making such a angst and deep statement that works.

I really like the stitching in the background, it's actually very good, like it's falling and ripping apart at the seems.

Hmm, I'm not sure but adding something different to the background instead of it being so empty could have pulled of a much more deeper, effect. Maybe shadow buildings in the background or some creepy faces or shadowy figures in the background, shadowy skeletons, emitting from a shadow from some place to make it feel more dark. It's like your there! but not quite there yet in regards to the picture. :boing:

I love the way you inked there hair, Very beautiful. I always liked that about your works, is how you inked hair and added highlights. I also like how you did the eyes of the character that is also very nice indeed. the stitching crossing the mouth is also very nicely drawn.

I think that the neck is quite to small and thin. A tip on how to remember on how to not make it to to small is if you think of it like if can turn the neck to a 160o angle if it would snap or not, if it does! it's to thin and if it doesn't it's a good size. :boing:

I really love everything else about this picture, the way you did the upper body is pretty good! and I adore the detailing you put on the pants, like wow very beautifully detailed. It's like you looked at the wrinkles that pants actually made. I like that~!

I also think that the lining of his pants is going over to far to the left and misplaces his crotch area. I also would like to add that you did so well with the upper part of his body but kind of let the bottom get a bit neglicted in some type of detail like cross hatching the crinkles and not making the legs look really flat like that without any dimention of the leg. but other then that, well done! Keep up the good work!!~!:boing:

Here are some references on anatomy that could help benefit you in correcting and making less of these mistakes. If you can implement the human anatomy of male and female humans, this will greatly improve your artwork. I look foward to more of your works in the future!! Keep on striving MikiClover~!
