    Calling it good for the most part. Might touch some things up, but I like how it looks.

    Looks very nice. The face feels a bit too detailed compared to the body. The sharpness of the face is in rather big contract to the rather blurry body. (could just be the hair that does it though.)

    Thanks you two. The "haziness" of the lower half of her body was a stylistic choice. I always like photographs with really shallow depths of field, so I tried to recreate that effect by putting the rest of her "out of focus" while her face was in focus. I had reached a point in the body where I could keep it loose and painterly like I did or further refine it, and I thought it would look better loose. I'll play around with the idea in other portraits, though!

    Lumens Thank you! I'll definitely be posting more :]

    ven-Yes, I'm presently back at home because of medical bills and leaving my previous job to get my back issues sorted out. Hopefully I'll be putting myself out there to sell some art and picking up a new job so I can move out. There's some family stuff going on too and blah blah I'm rationalizing because I'm embarrassed to be back home

    Here's some more progress on that Tron piece. I've been dabbling at this one for awhile now because it doesn't have any real deadline. I'll be going back over it again because I see a lot of things I don't like.

    And here's a process photo if any of you are interested. I might make these images into a brief tutorial of some sort.

    Tamaira2011 Conte crayon is compressed charcoal with clay mixed in. They're a bit softer in appearance than normal charcoal, and come in reds (sanguine) and browns (bistre). They're definitely worth a try. The sanguine conte crayon has a lot of life to it when used for portraits. The old masters used sanguine and the effect is really pleasant.

    Riox Thank you! I'm hoping to finish the Tron piece soon, but I've had a few more commissions come up, so it might have to wait. Blahhh D:

    D.Labruyere Thank you! I'm quite pleased with how that one turned out :]

    Voodoo_Mama Thank you! I'll definitely be posting more!

    Per request I'm making a thorough portrait process outline. I'm busy tonight, so I won't be finishing it, but I got it done through the line drawing and the beginnings of roughing in value.. Just wanted to post something today I'll be adding captions to make it a semi-tutorialish thing when I finish it!

    The portrait of the girl is gorgeous, wonderful steps in the details to put a focal point in there.

    Here's a feet in perspective guide I made for ven.

    To expand on it:

    Identify the outer boundaries of the foot with simplified forms. This will establish the basic area the foot will occupy on the picture plane. Then chisel away at these forms until you have a basic exterior contour drawing of the foot. Then begin to draw the basic planes of the interior of the foot. These forms will recede into space like everything else. The basic planes of the foot will be "chiseled" away at more and more as you draw them. The edges of where the planes meet are going to be markers of where perspective lines are going.

    This whole process is good to go through step by step, but by the time you have the hang of feet, drawing out the planes won't be necessary. In the beginning it will give you a strong sense of how the foot exists in space, though. And also, it will give you a simplified version of the foot that will be easier to light than the rounded form that exists in actual space.

    Awesome foot guide, man. I have issues with feet and that helped simplify them quite a bit.

    Make sure your friend takes pictures of their new sick owl tat so you can post them here!
