    You should focus on structure, lighting, anatomy, holding the pencil correctly, and joining a figure drawing class ASAP.

    Since you are so intent on portraits, here's a book: "Drawing Head and...

    :bow:

    And yes, I can name more than one case like that. In my case, most prominently, that would be Boris Vallejo.

    Yes, you should. In the worst case, you'll be corrected and learn something new. :) In any case, analyzing others' works and putting your thoughts into writing will train your own skill, and give a...

    Things that should interest you in particular:

    - Value composition, correct lighting and atmospheric perspective
    - Perspective and tight structural drawing

    1. Work from life. Join a figure drawing class.

    2. Keep on doing what you are doing with those, but from a live model.

    You've read the initial structure OK, but then blended the hell out of the values and missed a lot of subtler value differences.

    Practice oil painting from life for a bit. That will give you some idea of how to build the picture with brush strokes, color mixing and a little blending.

    That's your problem, actually. You look but you do not see. You need a deeper understanding of anatomy before you are able to see the difference.

    There are some valid comments in that Facebook thread.

    The "talent" is nonexistent. I had seen maybe three artists in my life who had something like resembling it, but only for one I can vouch...

    Study formal perspective. You may think now that your freehand cubes are good, but I can see distortions in at least a third of them. The inability to place them on a plane is merely a symptom of a...

    Do quick studies, return to them later. Learn to work in quick stints. Learn to focus on the process, not the result or the environment.

    And to begin with, learn to skip breakfast. :D

    If a client does not trust you to do proper work based on your portfolio, then they won't be likely to trust you ever. You'll end up wasting your time on the freebies.

    Most of your mistakes are in perspective, not anatomy. You are thinking in terms of lines on a flat page, where you should have been placing the round body in space.

    You are not reading the structure at all.

    Study anatomy, so you can recognize what you are seeing in the figure. Without anatomy knowledge, you are missing nearly everything there is to see.

    A large amount of weak, non-point light sources works pretty much the same way as reflexes from lit objects and ambient light.

    The problem with these sketches is that once you have some reference, you seem to toss Loomis' structure out of the window and switch to copying the lines and blots. Which is a wrong method.

    Pay more attention to proportions and structure. Lots more. You cannot hide the poor proportions behind stylish swashes with conte.
