Nice oils, the man's face is especially nice. In the digital study, some of your hard edges and muted colors are lost from the oils. Balancing the blurry look with some hard lines, and the blown out saturated colors with some nice greys would make the digital look sweet. Heh but takes a bit to get used too.
a la babsi: I go to workshops several times a week for painting and drawing.. if I can do one or the other every day I am happy.
Blue Severin - agree w/the edge control non-management in the digital painting.. the thing that drew me to the image was that it is super saturated and I kept to that.. but aesthetically - I hear you completely! - kw
