Not sure if there's anything deliberate.. His lips may have been too big/pouty leaning for the sad look.
though they say art is just a reflection of one's self...
Really his character has a spectrum I think more dynamic than just icy... There's absolute arrogance, sure he can be pensive but anyone with substance abuse problems such as his has an underlying sadness I think.
but there was no intent for me to portray him a certain way this is what I saw.
oh holy crap i'm sorry if i freaked you out with my last comment LOL I thought you were my friend (his username is cyphurus so i got you two confused) but still, this is kind of really amazing?? I love it!
