really keep a close eye on the shapes, particularly around the head as you widened the skull and eye sockets a little bit, yet narrowed the top of his hairline it seems. great job on surfacing and the values overall. the piece with the female looks like the left side wall that faces the viewer is a bit lighter than the original. keep an eye on these things and you will ace this entirely.
Thanks jason and agerkvist. Agerkvist, I start my paintings with a basic charcoal-like brush to block in my big shapes and values and then switch to some other texture brushes as I go along. I found a good brushset under http://digitalbrushes.tumblr.com/pos...ushes-download . Check them out and tell me what you think.
Do I get a new assignment now, because this was piece number 20?

Aw man these are fantastic, great range of marks and textures, well done. Think the portrait could be just a little darker in the hair, beard and jacket armpit area. Other than that it looks saweet. See you in the next assignment
Your progress is looking really good. If I were you in this last Sargent study I would separate the images with some space like you have already done in your previous studies. This will be helpful to measure space specially with that dark background, and I would also have a second look to the neck thickness, I think the biggest difference is there.
Great work anyway.
