    Some old digital stuff I dug up, Mostly photo ref. The first portrait is a bouguereau study. With the last portrait was playing around with a low saturation palette, got a little too low though i think

    Great rendering skilld here! Faces often seem out of proportion, might need to work on that.

    Nonobot : thanks for stopping by man, Going to try to post as actively as possible.

    Kidult : Yeah, I sometimes get so caught up in rendering I don't pay attention to my drawing I'll have to be more vigilant in the future.

    Work in progress, still pretty unsure about the background, I'll probably just leave it a solid color because I'm lame. Any suggestions lemme know!

    You have really cool stuff in here and I like a lot of it.
    But I see something that might become a habit. You push the teeth forward sometimes on the portraits. Try posing your own face and show the teeth in the way as the drawing is doing. The lower lip is tucked in. Also be careful with the details on the teeth. If you go too crazy on the detail between the teeth it will look awkward. This happens because the eye doesn't focus on small details like that. When we look at hair for an example, we see blocks of light on the hair, we don't see every single strain of hair. And if the strains are rendered out crazily, it will look unnatural. So be careful with details.

    edit: Argh, I need to add something: you can draw in the crack between the teeth, of course. It looks awkward as it is right now because the lower lip is pushed outward too much and the teeth is bright. If the teeth isn't showing much and is in shadow, it'd look a lot more realistic and if you had the crack drawn in, it wouldn't matter, it'd still look good.
    There you go

    Hope that helps some Have a nice day and keep pumpin' out art!

    ^ Great advice on the teeth, your spot on with that.

    I like your work, I think over time you will find your own style. Hope to see more from you, take care.

    Your rendering and value studies are fantastic, but I agree with what you said about needing to do more drawing - I think it would really help those anatomy drawings to draw in the 3d shapes below the form, like draw what is behind the form, at the moment they seem very flat and it doesn't help learning form when studying that way.

    Update on the W.I.P. and a quick photo study before bed, liked the photo a lot but the model had some white powder stuff on her lashes and eyebrows, so sorry if it looks funky.

    Great sb start! Nice figures. Keep up the anatomy and gesture studies. Only thing I can crit on at the moment besides draw, draw, draw is to look for the cool green and blue hues in your skin tone shadows. I think they will help to push your portraiture.

    Mahran - Thanks! will do.

    Ninjac - I will keep that in mind, thanks!

    FeatheredFace - Glad you like it, I included some Processes shots with today's portrait hope it helps.

    Ok, So I redrew the face on that woman like ten million times, finally made it acceptable and just got tired of looking at her so that ones probably as done as its getting haha, also today's portrait with some process pics, lemme know what you guys think!

    I start by blocking in the main colors, I don't worry too much how it looks, but if you put all the colors down first your picture wont get as muddy when you blend it.

    Indicate some crazy hair, change whatever needs to be changed anatomy wise, and get ready to blend, I also know I'm not going to do a lot with the hair or body so i don't get too crazy with those.

    Blend, and add highlights, add a few colors, final adjustments kinda stuff. (would have taken a bit longer with the hair, seeing as how it looks terrible, but running out of time!)

    I like what I'm seeing in here. You seem to have a good sense of the human body overall but to me the facial proportions seem off in some of your stuff.

    Especially from an angular perspective. eg in post #2, 3rd image, if you were looking at her right eyebrow (from the viewers perspective) its sitting lower than her left one and this doesn't seem to make sense in relationship to the angle of the mouth where its more in a straight angle/line, or in other words, close to a horizontal plane.

    It could be also that the eyeball is sitting way too low underneath the eyebrow line, cause the relationship with it to the ear is seems way too low.

    Now I'm not a pro, but when you look at Loomis, Bridgeman, vilppu, Mentler and those type of artists, you will notice these relationships in the proportions in their drawings. I hope that helps

    your figure work is so beautiful! but something about your faces freaks me out a little. i think because it's all so realistic that the largeness and clarity of the eyes seems a bit unsettling-- maybe they seem just slightly out of place. the teeth detail brings a lot of focus to the mouth and i think that in a lot of your faces, you need to pull the jaw forward a little bit. i think the lower lip seemingly being tucked in is just the effect of an apparent overbite.

    but your work is beautiful! i'm envious of your figurework.

    Great shading and figures Divine and I love the graphite stuff. You don't happen to have any of more those lying around that needs to be posted in your sketchbook? I'm not saying your other stuff is bad or anything, just specially in love with those graphite drawings.

    Also, I agree with what Erotopia said about the eyes/face. In post #25 her right eye seems a little "flat" to me somehow (and perhaps it's a bit large). In post #26, I love how you can draw that much detail on the figure without ref! But then again, all your figures are great so it shouldn't be a suprise I guess.

    Anyway, keep the posts coming, alot of nice stuff here.
