Anytime I try to grow as a illustrator, I typically start in a new style with my avatar. I wanted to try a more straight-on, shaded look.
FUN FACT: It's pretty obvious that I think people don't need noses. Most of my illustrations are nose-less.
My inspiration was this shot by Edokoa and this shot by Pedja.

Awww wtf, jealous.
Looks great Rogie. Is your forehead really that big thought 0_o
Only thing that looks a bit odd to me is the goatee. It almost looks like it's your neck but very hairy. Most likely just a point of view though.
I really like this. Very much packed full of awesome.
Very smooth shading style. I really like it!
My only suggestion, making the beard look like its coming down off the chin, instead of behind or below it. :)
Big improvement over your current one for sure! I like the style.
@Shawn yeah, it almost looks like an amish beard...lol. I was aware of that, but I kinda like it. Regarding the forehead, no, its not that big...I was aware of that too ;)
Amazing, would you be able to do these on request? I'd love to have one. (cost?)
@Marcus this one was about 2-3 hours of work...I'm sure I wont be able to hit David Lanham's $50 avatar rate...I'm just not that fast.
You should seriously be a game designer. This is stinking awesome.
Absolutely fantastic work, Rogie. Great style, well illustrated. My only criticism is that the beard looks just a bit disconnected, like it's coming from behind his chin. Otherwise, I love it.
@Hillary I've had three dreams in my life: 1. Be a Disney animator. 2. Be a Game designer. 3. Be a faith healer.
@Patrick your comment seems spot on. It seems a few people are saying that, so, well said my man.
Nice work Rogie, love the mouth & ears especially.
Really love this! Very smooth shading, good combination with background.
To hear that Anton Peck likes this is a definite shining moment for me.
def much better man!!
@Rogie All of those are not impossible! Being a faith healer is even closer than the other two. :) Dreams are just distant realities that are waiting on our potential to fulfill them (Which God put inside us!).
@Hillary I've always felt something in me that was destined to be a faith healer, even though I know it's a VERY debated and controversial thing. I love the idea of bringing life and healing instantly into people's lives.
Love it! The shading is really spot on! :-)
Nice! Do you also think people don't need teeth on the left side of their mouth? :)
@Jonno All you really need is one tooth that meets another tooth on the bottom so you can chomp stuffz.
@Rogie Then it is in there for a reason. Just how I feel like I am destined to help people financially and help to re-build homeless peoples lives. :)
Sweet action. Jonno, I almost wonder if it would look best to reduce the width on the right side as well (left visually) to simulate a more realistic smile.
