Dexter Outlines by PatrickBrown Dexter Outlines by PatrickBrown
Here's a new piece I'm working on, I've been so excited about the upcoming series of Dexter: Season 5 so I just have to do a pic :D

I really wanted to do an action pic of him but could think of anything he could do, as he doesn't really do anything full on, he's all stealth! But then I thought of doing something like this.. A bit more moody, since season 5 is based around that ;)

I need to know if this even looks like Dexter (Michael C. Hall) because I've been trying to get it right for a while, and now I've looked at it too long haha! Any advice would help..

I'm new to the critique world so I'm afraid I won' be able to give you amazing advice:meow: But I'll start with compliments :la: Im good at those!

You have perfect anatomy strucutre for your style and I love thewrinkles of the clothes! :dummy: Your style is both unique and gripping! I love the form and shape of his hands as if they are tense! You have obviously worked hard on this! :dummy:

I would only like to comment badly on the face :fear: Don't take offence but I believe it doesn't suit the rest of the body. I believe it needs more expression.
But if you intended that then that is unnessacary information! :dummy:

Overall I like the dramatic pose and feel of this! Even tho there is no colour! :dummy:
What do you think?

Your work has to be the most easily recognized contemporary work outside of Jim Lee, in my own opinion. The body structures, faces, hands, poses, etc all fit the comic book life to a "t". Your work is spectacular, fun, serious and silly all at the same time. All of which are compliments of course. I want to model my work after your own, but that would be wrong simply because your work is your work and your own style. I need to find my own, but to say that you inspire me and many others is an absolute fact.

Dexter, what a show! Gotta be my favourite thing on TV at the moment. Great job by the way!

If I was to critique this, it would be that his face doesn't really capture the likeness of Michael. I can see similarities, but I think the main thing that needs altering is the nose, it seems a lot wider than Michaels. And maybe the mouth, I can't quite put my finger on it haha.

Other then that, superb job as always!

Keep drawing :)

Hey Patrick,

Do you use illustrator to get those nice crisp lines?

Hi, nah sorry I use Photoshop for everything. My Wacom Intuos4 does most of the work for me when it comes to outlines haha!

Thanks :)
