    The outside line of the nose on that last one might be better with the purple colour you used on the cheeks. Try it in PS first.

    That annoyed me. Why hasn't any one encouraged you in that direction before? Without design even the best rendered pictures in the world would do nothing. It takes an inner eye to see it and you have it. It doesn't get taught in books because it's either there or not. Sure I've read some fine high-faluting writing on it, but that's not what art is about - we are not machines or computers would be doing it. Keep feeling it and go with it.

    Hey, thanks for coming by my sketchbook. You've got some cool stuff here. I actually really like how you're handling the colored pencils, I can definitely see stuff like that selling. Keep on going!

    aWesome paintings, drawings and a great color combination. I enjoyed going through your sketchbook. The positive orientation of your work just brightened up my day. Keep it up like this.

    I forgot to reply to comments

    Black Spot
    - Well, thanks for the encouragement! Now that I think about it...I was never really encouraged to do much in school at all. I was a pretty average student, not judged by my effort but there were many more talented students than I. So, I guess that's why.

    Swampdigger - No problem and thanks for stopping by!

    LtPlissken - Aww, thanks. I'm glad my little sketchbook make you feel happy.

    The last piece looks really promising. Stronger lighting on the head?

    Thanks everyone for the comments.

    - I like the lighting as is but maybe in the future I will go back and edit it. I just don't viewers to get stuck on only the head.

    This update may be a little pathetic since I haven't been doing real studies but I've been working hard to make new portfolio work and revise older drawings so I can find work.

    These sketches were done just for my own enjoyment.

    This was one of the things I revised for my portfolio. The finished version has flat colors.
    Attachment 969501

    Remember this drawing. I experimented with painting techniques to see what kind of things I could use in an actually finished one.

    On your last post, first picture, the girl's right forearm seems too short.
    For the third picture, her head is too far back on the neck and her chin jutts out just a bit too much.

    Other than that, your stuff is really great so far

    I just thought I would update with a speed-painting and the finished watercolor. The painting is on sale at my etsy shop if anyone is interested - http://www.etsy.com/listing/50537661/mask
