Less complex than the others.. I was going for that thick outline style thats so popular atm.
What ya think?

well, as i stated earlier, i like the grafitti and the gradient in the background :) but i have a question about something i did'nt see earlier. what's up with his ear? does he have really long ears or did you forget to render that part of it? right now it looks like its melting or something in your version of it becase it's a different value than his skin tone in the sketch

Re:
oooooh! i finally see that it's his neck, but in that case i think you should model it a little with a shadow or two ;)

Yeah I probably should have shaded his neck.. I didn't go with two tone shading, I may try it on it.

Its his neck and the black bit near it is a sideburn... so the skin below is his neck to shoulder part.

It good as it is. I think the bold out line would ruin it. but thats just me

thanks ;)

I think I know what you meant tho.. some webcomics have this annoying way of making the outline HUGE.. which can make it look really crap.
