General Xiahou Dun by serpentdoness General Xiahou Dun by serpentdoness
I realized that, being such a big fan of Xiahou Dun I haven't really made many full-coloured paintings of him, just did mostly rough sketches so here's one.

There's probably a bajillion things wrong with it, so crits are very welcome :).

He's so cool! I'm no crazy about Wei, but he's such a badass that I really respect him! In DW6: Empires, whenever I recruited him, he always became the most powerful person (after my spouse) in my empire!

Design wise, I wasn't crazy about his new look when I first got DW6, but I have to admit that it's grown on me the more I play it. You did a great job of painting him, great work!

Thanks! He's my favourite DW character in all the games XD. My first proper DW game was DW6 (then I went on to play 5, 4, 3, 7), which is why his 6 outfit is my favourite :) Thanks for your comment!

Eeeeee!!! Nice!!!! I think it looks great! XIAHOU DUN <3333

NICE <333

I think the other fellow already hit on most the points, especially the face. X'D Just that and the metal, shine, textures of the outfit or lack thereof!

Oh my gosh Serphent this is one of the most detailed pics I have seen from you. Every time I see a pic you have improved so much. I don't know this fellow but I believe I have seen pics of him before. This is by far the best. His hair looks so soft the way you did his mouth is awsome. His eye looks very realistic too. The outfit must of taken you a while. there is alot of detail in it. excirlent mork my friend. Keep it up :woohoo:

Thank you! I put a lot of effort into this one XD.

Actually, you've seen one of my previous paintings of him before, here [link] and I think the reason you don't recognise him is because in that older painting I put him in an angle where you couldn't see his eyepatch... another picture you've seen him in is this one [link]

Hehe, I'm quite obsessed with that guy, as you've probably noticed XDDD

yup it is coming back to me now. So how long exactly did it take you to complete this latest pic of him?? A painting like that would take about a week for me to do.

Thank you XD. I was really into this painting because I had been working on 3D models for the past several weeks, so painting was so relaxing and refreshing for me :).

I could see that a painting would be abit more relaxing then working on 3d models. it turned out well for you :)

First off, awesome pic of DA DUN.

Crits, I feel like the effort put into this pic kinda waned as you did the clothing, especially on his left lapel doesn't look as well rendered as other parts, and even though I told you about his face thing earlier, I think his face again does look a bit thin, I suggest giving him more of broader chin.

Despite that the rendering on his hair is well done and the skin looks realistic, so god job!

Thank you! <3

Oh god yeah... now that I'm more awake (I posted this pic at like 1.30am last night) I can see that his clothes need some detailing especially on the yellow parts.

Hmmn I HAVE fattened his face up a bit, and I personally think he looks normal...? o_O

Thanks again for the crit!
