Size:  102.5 KBI've been practicing proportions. Does this look good proportion wise? Not fingers or anything still got to get to that.

    I know this took longer then it should. Anyone have any suggestions on how to draw quicker with fewer strokes?

    Your painting is huge. Could you please resize it, then it will be easier to provide advice.

    I think the guy in the foreground is a bit distracting, maybe it's just his placement. Also, the use of only soft brushes is really killing your shapes imo.

    Use the biggest brush you can use for a specific job like blocking in the main shapes. Gradually work your way down to smaller brushes for small details, don't start with them. Other than that, it's just practicing this stuff enough times that you get in a rhythm.

    Yeah the main problem here is that it is too hard to define well each shape. Use hard brushes with various intensity of light so in the end you must define all thing you want. After that you could soften them with soft brush on the main shapes and some details.

    Have a nice day!

    This is better indeed but defining does not depend on the media itself but in the way you use it.

    You could, but the reason why lines work is because it creates contrast. If you wanted to do straight painting, you'd need to make sure the silhouettes are easy to "read". For instance, those mushrooms are white and they are up against a dark background, that contrast makes their silhouettes easy to understand.

    Does the lighting and shadowing look somewhat natrual on him. If not where and why? Lighting is coming from his right side of head(kinda).Thanks for input!!

    Pretty good, but I'd raise that cheek bone and mouth slightly. Also, if you're going for more realistic proportions then the ear should be roughly as long as the bottom of the nose to the eyebrow.
