Oh wow, I really love the skintones on those last two. Lovely variation of hues. Watch the use of darker texture brushes on skin, especially on women - the one in post 194 kind of looks like she has stubble, or at least a very dirty face. (Though if it is meant to read as dirt, you're heading in the right direction but not quite there.)
You did a good job with the study in 195. Hues look really nice, and you were able to bring alot of it in to the one from imagination. The hues work quite in the imagination one, comparing to the reffed girl, don't forget to push the values, and bring some hard contrasting pairs, like clear edges and all that. You did this wonderfully on the reffed one, and it resulted to me reading it alot more deeply, the whole whing pops nicely. On this imagination one, you're almost being too nice to the hues and not putting opposite pairs next to each other, it's kind of halfway there and the result is not as powerful.... Very easy to fix, especially since you have done it great on the reffed one....just keep it in mind.
@LastGen: Thanks man #205 took a little over 2 hours and #206 took about 1 and a half hours. Atleast for me that's quick
I felt like doing a selfportrait, so I did just that. I did it in about 1 hour and 40 minutes and I quess I could've worked on it longer, but I just didn't feel like it. Anyway, I think it looks okay and I'm somewhat happy with it. I'll do better next time though.
