Wall Street Snob

I attempted to Design a Wall Street snob today. I have included the some of the roughs and a quick cleanup and photoshop coloring. I feel that my color sens has weakened, due to my long absence from painting. Whats the feedback?

Hey Dude,

He's certainly a slick fella. I like the big hair to show his character. The tie seems awkward to me, mainly because it seems to be at a strange angle to the body. Also, I think you could pose his left arm to show character, like have it casually slipped in his pocket or resting on his waist.

As far as colouring goes, what I think is different here to your previous pieces I have seen, is that you are essentially using flat colour. The value contrasts within the shapes aren't strong enough at the moment for us to have a sense of form. I don't think its a major problem though, because you have strong line work, so that it reads easily.

One thing I was thinking about, with the background, was to set him against something suggestive of a city night sky, to give more contrast with him (although not too dark to lose the linework) and give the sense of a setting.

That's my 50 cents anyway. Glad to see you still striking forward mate and making LCAD proud.
