This guy is a Flash Uni, a species I invented :) they have super-short backs and loooooootttsssss of hair. Overall I'm pretty pleased, it's just the head and neck that aren't what I want. I feel like I've got the perspective on the head all wrong, and his expression is meant to be sort of flirty... he's coming across as more shy, to me.
This is the ref I've been using for the head and neck, and I've been using this for the body. It's not unusual for me to combine refs to get the exact pose I want.
Anyone got any thoughts on what exactly I'm doing wrong? [EDIT; link to the actual dA upload here... you can see more detail with it bigger...]
