Thanks for dropping by my SB.
You've got a great start here.... keep painting like this
As critique, your gray-scale paintings seems to stay in one mid range of values, and seem to lack a bit of contrast.. try to use some extreme values too to really pop out the composition.

Thanks for your reply and your precise advice. Don't know why but I was always afraid to use the darkest darks and brighest brights.
Well, todays update. First one's an attempt to do a still life. Second is a naked chick study and the rest are my scribbles from imagination to remember what I've learned from my anatomy studies.

Nice studies again.
You actually have a good understanding of values as i see in your studies.
I have heard this from plenty of sources and learnt through practice... best practice is to set a fairly dark grey as your darkest dark and a light grey as your lightest light... paint till one point.. then take your blacks and whites(specular highlights, contact shadows etc.)... and pop out those forms... really makes a difference.
Give it a shot.
