Small update on the picture. I'm sort of putting the detail in the background and then losing them.
WOW I love # 2162, can I ask you how do you sell them ?!
Is it like reprints/ cards, posters, there are all kinda
possibilities. I opened up a Redbubble shop desperately to
get some coins rolling in my wallet!
Do you have another forum where you post/ sell ?!
I think the last painting is great! I was afraid that the background would sort of overtake the picture, but you kept it subtle and it blends in great. Is there any reason why you chose such a background? Would love to hear a story behind it if you have!
Great work on the portrait; I really like how the expression came out. It feels genuine and lifelike.
For a crit, I feel like the forehead is a little flat, particularly on the left side by the hairline. A little form shadow there could help it feel like it's curving away from us in space. Also adding brush strokes that suggest the curvature of the form can help make the subject feel more 3-dimensional. I think you have a little bit of that going on in the shadow-side cheek already, but conscientiously adding that to other rounded areas (like the forehead and neck) could help it pop off the canvas a little more.
Keep up the good work!
Not taking that still life any further than this.
Trying to improve my pencil technique, as I'm doing th Start program and my master studies are suffering because of it (see that thread for them), but here's a partial one that was beginning to turn into Noah Bradley. Now people want him to wear a wig.
After doing a ton of pencil exercises, here are today's still lives.
