    oh wow, good luck! is it training or deployment? i hope you dont get shipped off. a couple of my cousins are deployed overseas atm. keep your sb with you whenever you can, you may have the chance to do some incredible life studies of things like aircraft, and tanks, and weaponry that most people will never have the chance to study up close and personal. but most of all be careful. good luck!

    Great stuff here. But imma be an ass and give you a crit also!

    I really like second portrait on post 962. The painting feels real solid with a good sense of depth and form.

    My critique is that some of the color choices and application on your other works can feel somewhat empty and lifeless. By that i mean that your colors have this glazed look that distracts from the forms and make things feel washed out, even the values in some of your work. I know you do alot of work starting from a grisailles, but i would like to see you work up to a more opaque approach and being at more liberty to add more hue variation.

    I would like to see you experiment with more defined color schemes primarily using color schemes to separate areas of spacial depth while taking better control of saturations.

    I feel like some of the work you produce is all a consistent saturation, which can oftentimes betray the forms you are trying to convey in your paintings. Remember that tones, tints, and shades all contribute to a good painting equally.

    I also find that in your faces there is a stiffness in the area around the eyes, mouth, and septum of the nose. As far as the eyes i think this is due to tight chiaroscuro you use, while the rest of your figure is typically softer and more implied.

    Your cheek area looking alot better than a couple months ago and i see you are expiramenting with some softening of the area beneath the eyes.

    I think your faces will have a bit more life if you play with more lost edges, allowing things in the shadows to merge into complex tones instead of defining them so sharply.

    Try to play around with using complementary or analogous background instead of making them the same colors as your focal points. This is add more "pop" to your work and also allows you to have more room to play with saturation without having to compete with superfluous areas of your painting. I think this would be my biggest critique.

    In general i absolutely love your work and i think you have made amazing progress since the first time i began following your thread. And i hope you continue to work hard and grow even more!

    Crazy progress...

    I have to agree with lolbbq that there's plenty of things you could work on, but it may be that you are so used to your colors, your rendering style, etc. after such a long time of pushing work out to progress in this style.

    So, maybe try to experiment with the way you render or build your pieces up. Even if the current style will stay the preferred one for you, I'm sure it'll bring alot of flavor to your works.

    The mermaidhorse is funny, kind of like, take a seahorse, turn in to halfhorseseahorse, take halfhorseseahorse turn in to horseseahorsemermaid.. judging by what I just wrote I'd have to say it's past my bedtime

    BTW; seeing as you are going to intti, are you 18-19? If so, you planning on going studying art somewhere here in finland?
