The idea: Imagine a grumpy old overseer, a side-kick if you will. If he's the 'muscle', then he's a very grumpy kind of muscle that you don't want to cross.

With this idea in mind, I tried to draw a guy who you'd like to avoid in the cafeteria when you pop in to get a bite to eat. I really don't know how I can make a man look 41 years old without making him look like he's 60...

Here he is, anyway.

Anyone want tomake some adjustments, feel free. this is by no means a final thing. But it's a start.

Any suggestions?

My own pet peeves:

1. The Chin is weird.
2. The HAIR. Did he just come out of the mental ward, or is it just me? or maybe the "bed hair" look is in?
3. It appears that his mouth has permenantly frozen into that weird, weird scowl.

The grumpy is good: thumbs up on that. And yeah, I can see Hyde having messed up hair. He's not the sort of person who would ... y'know ... care. Now, not to disparage the work you've submitted so far, but it'd be great to see full body concepts for these characters. Personally, I can't usually comment much on just a portrait, since there's not a lot I can take out from it.

Full-bodied pictures for everyone? That'll be hard..especially since all I'm drawing with is a laser mouse... well. okay. I'll get to work on it and such... but it'll take me a very, very long time.

*nod* Thanks for the comment anyway. I'm sorry.

Another thing: I stink at drawing full-body stuff. I mean, really stink. And all my characters seemingly end up facing in the same direction. But that's alright... I guess this is just more excuse to practice and take my time.
