    cool man, i think you placed the facial features quite well. though, the mouth seems to be too much on the right. if you flip your img horizontally, you can tackle such issues without much pain
    now, bout painting, heres a little trick. I guess its just taste and personal way of working, but I found that working from a non-white background was extremely helpful. I usually start with somewhat between 40% 60% black. then I add the darks first before I work into so lighter tones. to finish it up, I add highlights. I guess this way you have your value range under control. also, you dont risk ending up with annoying white spots. just a hint, try it if you want

    Thanks for the tips. I completely forgot about the flipping, I need to do that more, as it really does help!
    I just did a little colour piece. Cropped, as the eyes are positioned wrongly on the face (I HATE EYES), however it looks not too bad when cropped like so:

    Oh yeah, I got a tattoo today aswell, check it out!:

    I also went to the art gallery in my town today. I was surprised to see some Sargent pieces, and a lot of Raeburn paintings. I will take my sketchbook in some time and throw down some lines.

    look at that, your growing with every piece, very nice. I find th last one def. very interesting. I took me a while to figure out if the rather dark values bothered me but no, it actually works. though, I recommend to bring it a little more up by adding more light tones? you choose, keep rockin (EDIT: sexy tat, sexy mofo!" lol!)

    Looking at page 2, I think you need to learn how the body works together so it doesn't turn into a lump. I'm not one for insisting on intimate knowledge of anatomy, but just some thought going into a sketch. We all learn in different ways, but relying on photo reference to get it right can lead to a dead end. Now work what you've learnt about form into your imaginative bits.

    I have been enjoying having fun recently, but I cant slack on art, or else my work will get from bad, to worse. So here is a little sketch to keep up my digi skills. I sketch with a pen during lectures, mostly faces(unreffed) I'll try to scan them some time.
    Blackspot: Thanks for the tips. I need to do a lot more figure work before I even feel relatively comfortable doing it.
    Phil - Cheers!

    anddddd my attempt at colour. A few colour layers, and a few overlayers, then a few straight painting in colour layers. I prefer the b&w personally....
    I obviously needed to spend a lot more time on the hair, jacket and hand.

    You told me to work in grey scale and I'm telling you start with colour to get more familiar with it. Colour values can look very different to grey ones. Maybe we'll meet in the middle.

    Thanks for the comment blackspot, I will keep that in mind.
    Done a few things, but didn't save them because they sucked / and I was just testing stuff out.
    Here is a quick selfportrait.

    I'm a firm believer that SP's should look you in the eye. You need to address what you see in the mirror not a photo where half the work is already done. It's tough being honest with yourself about yourself, but when you can reach there and touch it, that's when the magic starts. I'm still lying - are you?

    I'm not gonna lie, you just confused the shit out of me. But, ok. I will try with a mirror next time. haha
    I have also started drawing on the bus in the morning. Good fun, and good practice. Although it can be quite shaky. Not gonna upload them, as I still see improvement with every one I do, when I slow down with the quick sketches, then I will ask for help.

    I did a painting for the secret santa thing, but A. Forgot to take a photo B. Can't show you it anyway
    I just did some thumbnails, I dunno if they will make sense to anyone else, but I thought I might aswell show you. Everything from mind obviously.
    Top left is a miners cave environment. The second is a plane fight. Third is a monster in a city. 4th is a face. 5th is a face. 6th is a face off in a forest. But looks shit, just like the other 5. haha

    Colour study. I am not used to using the colour window instead of the foreground colour picker. If that made sense. Using HSB, I think it makes it easier to control saturation.
    There is something about her eyes I just cant get right...
