Man I envy your sketches of faces and hands I defiantly should work more on them. for the digital pieces your getting the feel for some of the photos but the skin tones are a little bland and not in the right color range one of my teachers would talk to me about looking to find the differences in the color ranges in the skin heres Kind of an example Hannns is really good about getting the color in the skin just right http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...6&d=1219090849 hope that helps keep up the studying
Good work! On the blond girl portrait, I think it's not just the forehead, but the entire head structure what should be corrected. Before working on the details, settle down the geneeral structure and make sure it's well proportioned. If necessary, put it on multiply mode over the original picture or even trace it (don't abuse tracing, though).
Demo: Thank you! And yea, I myself get bored watching the colors on my painting, need to work on that asap!
Abrodos: I agree, but I'm not gonna touch on that one anymore, gotta move on! I usually start my digitals with tracing, and then painting, then my teacher suggested I started more on the shadow / light / volume of things.
Mister Dark: Thank you! I will try tweaking it later tonight.
And here's a quick WIP before I go to work, will work a bit more on it tonight.
Hi, looks like you're working hard, so you can probably ignore any comments from me. All the same, you might look to see where you can blend and simplify some areas and edges. Maybe it would help you direct the viewer's attention?
