    Definitely female, though disturbed for me by the prominently muscular neck: female necks are usually fuller and smoother in the thyroid region. It might also help if the ear had not been made quite...

    It's the platysma, which runs as a very thin sheet over all the others. One of it's actions is to pull/hold the corners of the mouth down and outwards.

    No problem. Blending in Normal Mode at fractional opacity involves what is known as additive-averaging or "partitive" mixing, one of the three basic kinds of colour mixing (the other two being simple...

    Many beginners greatly overestimate the accuracy of their own drawings, and this "unconscious incompetence" is a major factor holding them back. The benefit of drawing casts is that they stay...

    I have some info here on how CMY primaries work and how CMYK relates in theory to CMY, but I'm not sure that's what you are asking about:

    The typical approach prior to the second half of the nineteenth century was not painting over greyscale, nor direct painting, but involved variations on the idea of "painting in layers" over a first...

    Benedikt is right, but you might be able to significantly restore the look of the work you've already done by a gamma adjustment on your laptop. In Photoshop it's under Adjustments > Exposure.

    The construction uses the anti-solar point to indirectly represent the location of the light source because the actual location isn't in the picture plane. On the horizon vertically above the...

    The "light vanishing point" is the anti-solar point - the point directly opposite the position of the sun.

    It's easiest to understand how it works if you think of the sun on the horizon at dawn....

    In the book there is an example of a leg drawing that starts with what is clearly a blind contour, which is what I have usually done, but the main thing is that you do the drawing blind, and don't...

    Sounds just right to me - you're not bound by anatomy or perspective, but you do understand them.

    Perspective is actually a good analogy. Just as lines in an image that converge on a vanishing...
