Witch dud by Cylithium Witch dud by Cylithium
A wannabe hipsterish dude. I'm randomly doing these, with no reference at all, to get my hand going again, so throw your opinion at me and lemme know what you think I am a dummy!

I'd request critique on almost everything I draw, but I ain't got no core membership. 'Cause I'm poor. Grump

Hi, I'm from project comment too! I was really drawn to this piece even from the thumbnail because of the excellent choice of color. By choosing a primary tone for this drawing, it really intensifies the feeling that you are putting into your art. I especially love the white flecks that you have added. You have submitted it as digital, but to me it looks like a watercolor, which is an impressive feat for digital art. What some others were saying about the proportions I wouldn't pay much mind to. If you were going for a realistic look, it would be different, but the joints are in the correct position, and the fact that he is skinny adds to his hipster wizard charm. Also, something about the hair reminds me of the fairly odd parents.

Hello! I'm from Project Comment!

This is a likeable picture, with an admittedly hipster-ish style (he also looks like an older version of Guybrush Threepwood!) and a boundless enthusiasm (and a slight dose of happy dorkishness) in what he does. The suspenders, baggy sleeves, little moustache and beard in particular help give him that “friendly and nebbish” kind of look.

The magical effects of his wand are fairly well made, and I particularly like that the wand itself has a look of its own. It makes it more distinct than just being given the usual design of a simple length of lacquered black wood with a white tip. There is little in the way of shadow, but as the background is blank, it isn’t something that one misses very much.

I could imagine one making an amusing main character of this guy, in some story where the guy tries to study the arts of magic.

The rings under his eyes make him look a little tired. Are they merely a mark of him feeling the first marks of age, or has he had a long day of practicing spellcasting? His black eyebrows clash a little with the reddish hair, but otherwise I can’t really find anything to complain about.

Hiiii! Thank you for your insight! I don't like to stress the shadows too much, but I'll definitely try to think of a better way to add them in the future. He does indeed look tired, maybe he has a hard time controlling his magic and stuff. I guess my one mistake is that I haven't thought this through. It just sort of happened Giggle I'm trying to focus on this workflow and see what happens, 'cause it's more fun this way. Thank you for taking time to write your thoughts about this. I really appreciate it.Hug

I like the cartoonish style and simple yet defining lineart.
His raggedy appearance is kinda cute, expecially the eyes, he looks a mix of proud of his abilities and embarassed, maybe because he considers it nothing more than a plaything or because he's been found out.
The colours are warm and they combine together in a somewhat welcoming atmosphere, it seems like he's saying "come here, don't be scared, let's have fun together with this".
Also, I admire how you could render the shadows without fading the colours, keeping them defined and changing only the tones making them lighter.
And small details like the white dots show creativity and cure.
Usually I'm not particularly fond of white background, but this is one of the cases where it is better like this, it helps focusing on the character.

I really enjoy this piece's color scheme and the man's expression. You're art, in my opinion is amazing, and I have seen some of your other pieces.

The gentle yet sharp outlines and many gesture lines in the hair and such are brilliantly done, and the lighting and sparkle are perfecto! Although there are like, maybe, a few flaws, like the tiny sketchy lines that don't connect to anything, and the ratio of leg/ waist/arm length being a bit unbalanced, I'd personally commission you if I had any muns! 

I look forward to your improvement! Have a great day/night!

I get what you're saying about the arms and legs proportions. It might be so because I'm not using reference, even thought I 100% should.CURSE YOU! I'm usually doodling very fast and I don't spend too much thinking about proportions, but the overall thing. 
ALSO, at this stage, I'm still learning so I'm not asking for any money for my drawings. If you want anything, i'd be super happy to draw it for youLove

The style is so soft and nice to look at. The color choices are good too. The effects you have for that thingy the guy is holding. All I am thinking is it is a magic wand.
