    I love how the fleshy/organic tones work in 4, 5, and 6.

    You seem to be having fun, Keep it up!

    These are very fun to look at, I especially like the sleeping one its awesome. There is something Van Goghish about them.

    Wow, man...I really....really like these. Especially those couple of moleskin ones from the beginning of the thread! Are you continuing that project because it seems really cool... I see a lot of great qualities in your digitals,like yyour attention to detail, and your ability to capture that detail without it seeming unnatural...like with hair. I really like what you do with your eyes every time...the amount of care you put into the structure is AWESOME. Now I feel inspired.

    The two more "crappy" pages are awesome! So glad to see some more work from you! The green wash is really neat, the faces are very convincing and seem real. I really like how you rendered your hair with the paint...what is that, guache? I like the pencil study too, looks really solid. You've got a good sense of value in there...I don't see anything to critique,, save for maybe the fact that you should post more! Please?
    You make me wish I could read German.
