looks good, ive never tried oils so i cant say much about technique. one thing though... the area around his right shoulder/chest seems off. i cant really tell where his chest ends... hope that made sense.

kaini's on here, yay! (Hello from Living Lines! - Painted Melody)
You have such a sensitive feeling for nuances, ya know -- Those flesh colors and values really sing. I also noticed a progression in how you handle ears! (Myself I get really lazy and slap-dab that part of the head.. yuck)
Keep posting, I love watching your progression.

Thanks guys !! :)
You're right about the shoulder Chris, I spent a lot of time to get it right but gave up, maybe I was to tired.
Hey Jeremy ! You're here too ! :)
Well, I love painting ears, ears have such a nice shape, with all the curves and warm colours. :D

Hey this is awsome - you seem to have a really good understanding of shadows and how color changes in shadows and highlights. Keep posting!
