    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.

    Keep painting

    Pretty nice studies, I mostly like your traditional stuff
    you shouldn't be afraid to use stronger contrasts when drawing digitally, though.

    I actually use this method but it doesn't seem to work well for me, i guess that's just a matter of practise. Thanks anyway.

    Thank you. I've actually tried to paint with acrylics a few times only, however I will certainly do it again. Would love to try out oil painting. As for my pencil stuff, well, maybe that's just a matter of taste. )

    Ok, a small up. Just some scribbles from head.
