That last painting is pretty good form wise, but the color that you picked for her skin is a bit too yellow/orange I think (Might just be my monitor)
Might want to get some more pink in there.
I looove the tomatoes
I love the colored renderings! The tomatoes, egads! Fantastic.
Your figure studies are good as well, though I think you could work on anatomy and proportions a little bit more. And perspective as well.
Practice makes perfect
Keep it up!
Wow some great work here!
You say your speed paint of Jenny McCarthy took longer than intended - just out of curiousity, what sort of time frame were you aiming for?
If I start a speed paint, I never realise how long it has taken (I should probably time it), I just end up calling it a 'speed' paint if I do it within one session. That is still probably like an hour... (I'll have to try a bit quicker).
Wow that Mandy Moore portrait is stunning! I thought it was a photo, nicely done!
Hi again Angela! Those last 2 studies are looking really good, love the use of the color. The one thing I'm starting to notice is that you need to work on edge control- the tomatoes largely look airbrushed except for the green parts. It draws those areas into focus, which is great, but you may want to do it a bit more subtly (I haven't seen the source photo though). The Jenny McCarthy one just has inconsistent edges- they're too hard all over the body, too soft on the face in comparison, her left leg is too soft, and then the ground and background are barely registering at all. Check out Elwell's edge tutorial on the site, it helps out a lot on the subject.
I did notice your Dallas sketches before as well, bummer that I missed you there. Maybe next year .
Hey, so glad you got a sketchbook finally! Yeah! Keep posting please. All I can say is on your pencils to watch your proportions. I notice the left shoulder of the reclining woman seems kind of wonky, so just be careful of that kind of stuff. Glad to see you got to go to Reverie - I wanted to go so baaaad!
sick stuff dude! I love the Jenny McCarthy pic, hope to see you finish and fix the colors soon!

Wow, very neat indeed! Those face studies looks great, and so does your pencil stuff, looks like you got the female body down pretty well. I miss some more men though, since that herald is so old, I'm kind of thinking you're better than that male anatomy wise now
