    Cool studies man. If I knew what you were trying to achieve with your studies maybe I could give you a critique. Also how long did the landscapes take, the second one seems lacklustre in comparison to your other one. they both look at little bit blurry too if I am honest.

    Very helpful dude, exactly the kind of critics i m looking for
    the objective of the studies in most portraits is : practicing beliavle/interesting facial expression plus improving my brushwork.

    As for lanscapes i wanted to practice atmospheric perspective, i still struggling with that, maybe you can help me with it...the dullness of the second one probably comes from a misuse of fog ?

    About the blurry feel i guess i need to stop working exclusifly on 33% zoom, i do it to not get caught into detais, but you helped me see the downside of this approach.

    Thanks a bunch for your help.

    Hmm, if I were to say something, it might be "bigger brushes and more finish". The only thing that really bothers me is that there's a million tiny brushstrokes visible making the pics look unfinished, especially when they're in places like in the hood of the first image, which could have been done with some big strokes instead of many tiny ones.
    Here's a vid that may help you (actually spending some time painting traditionally with big brushes usually helps):

    Yeah go with what Tiny bird said in response to your brush strokes. Im terms about the facial expression, why are you practising that specifically? Are you looking to get into storyboarding and graphic novels? Or are you just looking to master them? If you are then I would say just keep up with it cause your going good.

    hey man! nice studies.. you're colour picking is close, when you paint you have to zoom in and out all the time , its same as squinting your eyes, it helps to block in the darks and lights, so don't change it..what i would say is that dont worry about the blurry feeling, just keep doing what you do. and I want you to read color and light by james gurney, its a sick book. buy it and read chapter by chapter and apply it for your work. don't Finnish the book in two days. take small steps and have fun ...
