    I dont know what to do with this now, I think i have a decent enough grasp on values. It could be laughable but meh . Art instruction from a wise old artist would be greatly appreciated

    Id like to klnow where to go from the value study part of this.

    Go darker . Add blacks and darks, they add to the image, not take away

    Agreed, don't be afraid of the dark values looks good so far, maybe some anatomy studies? www.posemaniacs.com

    Alex.Zelenski - yeah I try to dodge using more darker and brighter tones as I can never blend them properly , they always end up like black directly against white.
    Il have to do more values studies and do it.

    Kawauchi - Ill attempt A skull study next time and use it as reference thanks

    defenitely need to push your values! avoiding it is really bad practice.
    try to blend by using a low opacity brush, and going between the two tones placing lots of strokes.

    I also tend to fear the darks. It helps me if I make one of these

    on the side of my paper so I can see what values I'm falling short of.


    You might also want to do some studies with traditional media, where you can manipulate values somewhat more immediately instead of fussing with dodge and blend and whatnot.

    they go in order of old to new but it seems to me that im going backwards.

    I can't quite tell what form the squiggly one in here is: Time to concept it up.
    But it's a cool exercise!
