    Nerahla - studies and paintings - come help me learn! ;) UPDATE TODAY!!

    Please scroll to the END of the thread, as these sketches in the first several posts are years old.





    Alright, here is a boatload of recent sketches. Sorry some of the images are dodgy, but I took cellphone pics of them before I got my scanner. All images are March 07 to current. The attached thumb is much more recent than these first...

    I told toasty in IRC that I'd practice noses today. I think this is about 28 or 30 noses? Anyway, I would have kept going but I have errands to run.

    Most unreffed, some reffed w/mirror and some with pics of my kids.

    liking it alot, your faces are very good, although why are there so few male portrais in comparison with all the female ones? Keep going.
    The stranger things appear the more real they usually are.

    Your studies show that you're very serious about the subjects. For example those muscle and nose ones. I don't have a critque for now, but I'll keep watching you ofcourse.

    Thanks everyone I should do some more studies soon. Gotta finish all the sketchbooks I bought

    Did this today on a total lark - and got great help in IRC. Was fun - it's a self-portrait! HAHAH Sorta finished because I was sick of it before doing much with her below her face. Sorry about that.

    Good jeebus! Your shading and coloring techniques are amazing!
    Like I stated before lol, I think I'm a bit underskilled lol. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up to you guys hehe.
    Well, anyway, the only thing I can say to critique, is just try to bring in some environment now, not much really to say. I'm still improving myself. Keep em coming!
