Maybe a flatter nose? He's supposed to be from Kara-Tur, after all.

Oooo! Very nice! :D

Hehe... He looks a lot more guttable now than before with that smug smile he's got. :P

He looks like Edwin? Well, some constructive feedback would be nice. What do you think would make him look more like Yoshimo?

My first thought for that image was: Romance Mod for Yoshimo. Now!

For some ridiculous reason I love the image to bits :wub:

Yeah, Orthodoxia, I've been thinking about the exactly same thing while I've been making this. :D Let's team up and write a romance for him, eh? ;)

Anyway. Darkened skin tone, attempted flattening the nose (thanks berelinde!) and added a scar to his forehead. Any better?

If I knew anything about romance perhaps, this way not happening. Which doesn't mean I wouldn't play it if someone were to make it.

I'm not of much help here since I keep looking at the whole concept (which I adore) and keep missing the little things. I love it either way.

Well I was going to suggest darkened skin. Maybe a little darker, he looks so light.

Worked more on the skin tone and nose, outfit, katana and background. Am I getting close?

He's cute and the shading is great (the scar! and the button!), but he doesn't look "Asian" to me at all. I think you should adjust the shape of his eyes, the lids and the space between his brows and lids.

Ha I just thought the same thing! He does sort of look like Eddie esp will that cute little eyebrow ring.

Soooo Ilmatar when will the Eddie challenge be??? (Hint hint!)

If you decreased the shading along the visible side of his face, it would give it a flatter, more oriental appearance. But it's definitely getting closer!

Yeah, I wouldn't mind a Yoshimo romance, even if it is brief...

If Yoshimo fling proves to be more or less enjoyable, I could add a dozen lovetalks in the same vein. But flirts? Never.

As for the portraits, I think hair texture is definitely European-looking, and so are eye slits. The look of arrogance and the eyebrow ring are delightfully Edwin-ish.

He has the eyebrow piercing in his original portrait also. <_< I don't know what to do about the hair texture but I'll try and work more on the face.

Asian people are surprisingly difficult to draw! Fixed eyelids and lifted the eyes' outer corners upwards a bit, tried to make the face look flatter and did something to the hair. Don't know if it helped.

Enormously! Much better! And still quite attractive.

Great, great, but where did he burn his ear? Or is that radioactive? :P

Oh gods, I always liked Yoshimo, but now he's *HOT*!! :woot: :wub:

I agree: Romance Mod! NOW!


He looks much more Asian now.

I agree that you might have to apply some eye to his poor burnt ear, though.

And maybe I'd advise him to tone down the use of lipgloss a little. :P



:ph34r:


Oh, and I love how the clasp on his neck looks. It looks so real. Well done!
