    that portrait shows a lot of skill. you realllllly need to push the darks though...if you did that, that portrait would be really amazing. I'm really surprised it's your first one!

    Thanks for the advice, and yes it really is my 1st portrait ever.

    here's the one with adjusted levels and contast, it looks a bit less realistic in some places now however.

    A small update, another exercise this time i drew a human knight being based on a piece made by awesome artist Daarken with a little twist, so it's just a try to be like this guy exercise.

    EDIT:

    Nearly ten months have past since i bought my love, my shiny wonderful Intuos3.
    Taking a look back at the past i'm proud how much i did improve, however i'm also
    angry at myself; For being so lazy, and working too little at improving my skills. I should
    draw more often i know, and i will try to overcome my weakness which is being lazy
    sometimes. I hope the next year 2010, will bring even more joy to my and especially
    your eyes. Thank's for all those who supported me in this long curvy and rocky road.
    This the first milestone...

    Looks really nice... but I can't help but think that knight has some really heroic proportions. 8+ heads high (I guess is ok)...

    There's something that just makes his head seem a bit puny... I guess is what I'm looking to say. Still a very skilled drawing.
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    The adjusted portrait is a lot better, trust me. Values are one of the most important thing to describe a form and make it look 3 dimensional. Try to use bigger brushes especially when starting out on a portrait and block in the areas that share the same value, then go on from there...
