    Hi Pou, inspiring stuff, as always. These last onion paintings look super fresh and exciting. Love the strokes and the color complexity you've managed with them. The bug woman is looking great as well. It cracks me up. The branch she is standing on looks a little "cut and paste", like it doesn't meld successfully with the background. It's looking a little flat. I know you probably want it to pop out in space, but I'm thinking maybe some of the edges are a tad too crisp and the lighting could subtly describe the form better? Not sure how to fix it, exactly. Do you see what I mean?

    Hi

    the blue girl study is awesome ! the oiginon too.

    i think it's worth it to continue even if you spend much time on it.

    you need to do quick exercices and longer exercices, and sometimes veryyyy long.

    i hope you'll get motivation and inspiration to keep up the good work

    Hey Pou! Those onions are really nice! I love onions!

    I need to second Buxu in post #310, you could do some of those "Feng Zhu"-ish constructions when it comes to animals. This stuff is really boss!
    Your hand-anatomy also needs some work, maybe you could go for a 100-hand-challenge? - just use your left hand for posing and do any kind of poses you can think of. I should do that too

    Your sense of value and form is getting better with each post - that's really nice to see! I wonder what would happen if you'd pour ~20 hours into one big-ass painting?

    Wutangclam: yummy

    Grumpysaur: Pfffuffff yeah it’s so flat. I see what you mean! I’ll try to improve that thank you

    Zou: I’ll do some longer studies, thank you buddy

    Buxu: >:C onions are the best. Yeah of course whatever you need, if I can help you with it!

    Purb: Thank youuuuu my cheerleader XD

    Ecki: Okay yes T___T longer stuff. AHHHHH 20 hrs??? INSANEEEEE. Someday someday bahha, I’ll try a 100 challenge again… I usually cop out at like 50 since my brain doesn’t absorb any new information after that. I’ll try to learn how to do some perspective constructions as well. Thank yuuu ecki

    Randis: Thank you I appreciate your kind words

    Hey Pou! I just wanted to stop by and say that I like your updates
    Your onions are really awesome. Makes me want to paint some too! How many more onions are you going to paint?
    I love the quick poses from the heavy lady from post #319 - the forms and linework are just awesome.

    yay, keep up the great work!

    Great studies you've been doing recently, Pou. The onions are full and round; great form and the brushstrokes aren't too tight.
    Have you tried using retarder with acrylics? I'm not sure if it'll help your process but it helps keep the paint wet while you work
    with it on the canvas/paper.

    You're good at colours but not that good at concept. I'd suggest you develop abstractions.
