some sketches. Trying different methods. The third works best for me(considering outcome and time taken), which is thinking abstract. I will try some more.

I should just wait until the end of the day to update.
I will do that tomorrow.
Also, it seems that I either get a half decent body, or a half decent face. Never both.

Thanks man, a little more comfortable, still having issues though.
Hope you stop by again sometime..
Some sketches for today. Art and me aren't getting on well today. So I am leaving it at that for tonight.

I think its good that you keep your values close together to start out. your much more in control and you dont go to dark too early. but its not done yet dont be afraid to kick in the darker values and the highlights. ( you will be able to handle form better) just approach em slowly and find out how far you can go. I hope that makes sense, my english is bad today

Thanks man. Yeah, I think I will do some longer stuff soon, although I seem to enjoy sketching more...

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!)
