I've been gone for awhile as you may have noticed. But most of the reasons why are all gone, and so here is a quick update. with my (finished?) 20 hour still life. And also some sketches from books/pictures.
I want to do some more still lives. Shorter ones, haha. Plus I've got 2 weeks to finish that sword and the stone piece. ATM I've got a bit of a busy schedule so updates may be a bit slower than usual. But nothing as bad as these last few weeks.
Theres more I could say but I know no one wants to hear it. So lets just carry on.
You've got some nice studies here man, i especially like still life stuff.
Two things i would perhaps mention for a crit would be 1, To focus on your hard and soft edges some more. This is especially clear in your self portraits, where theres alot of soft marks going on and its making your portraits look abit flat and muddy. Also the skin tones look abit off too.
And 2, would be to do more stuff from imagination, and apply the stuff your learning from your studies. If your not careful you might find yourself becoming really good at copying references instead of studying and learning from them. Everybody has their own menthods of learning, but something i found when i started to really push imagination pieces to a finish was the stuff i really sucked at jump out at you, and it makes it clearer what it is you need to focus on.
You've got some sweet skills, and i look forward to seeing more of your stuff in the future
