Great stuff so far. I love the atmosphere and mood in the first piece as well as the one where it's raining... and that painting is coming along nicely.
keep up the good work

great to see you working with so much dedication!!
I would recommend to use raw umber with something like this - red umber is a really saturated (high chroma) color, you might have to fight all that red in later stages. Raw umber is more quiet and better suited for copying a painting like this.
If the image you are copying had a lot of saturated reds and oranges, burnt umber would be a good choice.
(sidenote: umbers in general are good for underpaintings because they dry faster than most other pigments)
- post an image with your painting next to the rembrandt, at the same size!
- you obliterated all the interesting background texture with a flat tone now : ( you'll have to go back in and put texture in with several layers, to get the effect rembrandt got
- proportions are decent but not great - check the eyes especially, can't leave them like this..
buon lavoro comunque!! KEEP GOING!!

wa, great stuff
i think the glass in the first post, its base seems out of shape? like the perspective is a little bent.
also the two zombie guys fighting, their skin looks a little plastic and it might be because of the white used?
but im very impressed, keep it up
Painting depends on your state of mind and everything affects your state of mind. Use music, food, your workspace, your relationships and your intention to your advantage. Create an ecosystem of creativity for yourself.
[...] what concerns us here is not imagination itself, but rather creative imagination; the faculty that helps us pass from the level of conception to the level of realization.
