    No one is able to tell that you are black or green or whatever, just from your paintings. People will see how well you can paint and how much or little you improve, though.

    Cast drawing does help with lighting in general. It is no substitute for life drawing for studying anatomy.

    Copying photographs is not helpful either, because you need a base in anatomy and...

    Study anatomy and painting in parallel. Start with drawing in pencil, not with painting. (To answer your question - values come before color. When you proceed to painting, start with black and white...

    Learn to find the fun in figure drawing and studying lighting, perspective and anatomy, not just drawing cartoon cats, then. Learn to love the light for light's sake, form for its own beauty, do not...

    That is an interesting point, and one I can agree with. But what about art traditions that do not put such an emphasis on the individual touch as the European tradition? Is the authorship as...

    I don't snivel to Plato, and do not pretend that religion is on equal terms with scientific method where it comes to knowledge. I would say that makes me a better thinker regardless of actual...

    It's just the way he paints. Keeps returning here with more of the same (under different names when banned), gets critiqued, bites everyone who bothered to try to help. Does not improve, just churns...

    You have lots of lopsided structure in that face, and lots of vague forms, and lack of anatomical knowledge.

    Use reference.

    If this is from reference, then do a lot more studies from life, in...

    Illustrative style. More focus on whimsy and style, no real focus on form and perspective.

    What is your goal with those?

    Try using perspective lines throughout the figure, not just the face. It can help you a lot.

    Your principal mistake is drawing from imagination while lacking the requisite knowledge.

    The form is all over the place, this face lacks structure.

    Study anatomy. Draw real people until you actually know what they look like and how they work. Don't try to invent things until you do.

    You are making several beginner mistakes, including putting the vanishing points too close together, and drawing wider ellipses closer to the horison instead of narrower ones.
