    Nice update.
    I can see that you have improved a lot.
    As artists, we have to learn to see.

    I changed the lighting a little based on my newer reference, im happy with the skin evolution but I realised later that his left side doesnt match pretty much his left side!
    Idk how much beard hell have. Its was kinda hiding his smile.

    a little update, decided to go with a small beard to show better his smile. The only thing I would change so far is the old mans nose (too square?) and fatten a little his right cheek Im still deciding the color for the guy at the fg.

    last update before the final version! At Photoshop the shadows were much darker... but I finished the bkg, Im happy coz its way simpler than I normally do, I always go deep in details.
    I just want to finish the guys head (gonna paint him smiling)

    Really like the progress on that latest one, it's already come a very long way since the first drawing, and I love how the woman's face is looking.

    Some of your skintones - the monk, the martial arts guys - look a bit plasticky. I think it's partially the strong shine compared with the strong orange colour; you could use a bit more colour variation.

    I started framing the characters, Im kinda happy with the composition, I think my biggest weakness is composition and I tend to go too much to the details and add a lot of things to compete with the main theme. Learning a lot with Bourguereau

    Really great the way you did the skin coloring on the hands, any advice to have that kind of detail? the amor on the knight funeral it's also great.

    Thanks Izaya!
    I took a photo of my parents! To go deeper on details you have to have the best references, photo is the fastest way, but if you starting to learn how to draw/paint, its important to learn anatomy too..

    For the color, I use Deviant Nep skin swatch, just google it and youll find her deviant art pretty easy! Good luck!

    Thanks for the knight! I got some nice feedback and Ill try to simplify some things.. they told me that there are too many shiny spots..
