After i got home the portrit i did looks like crap so i tryed again this time from life hopefully it looks better i think i should stick to grayscale for now,

Still got that eye problem. I can't really suggest any color theory books, but Loomis does cover it in one of his books. I think it's the one about illustration. You may want to look through the informative threads, and maybe check out http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com, he goes over a number of topics in his blog.
Got a little done today worked on color mostly and did some sketches from imagination, ill save the sketches for a little later cause i wana finish them up a little bit.
the first is from a thread here on ca i had it under a rainy day color tutorial folder so i have nop clue which i got it from
the last 2 look really bad i painted them at 50% size so i didnt know they were that big. Attachment 575908 Attachment 575909 Attachment 575910
