    Aw, I admire the brush work soo much in you portret ! Everything looks so clear and "crystalic". Actually can't describe this, but I really like this one, my goal is to use the variety of brushes just the way you did it, ideal
    I wonder what visual defect u have if there nothing changes about the outline of your face when we're looking through the glasses ;p In my portrait I noticed a small displacement but maybe it also depends from the angle we're looking at
    Anyway, cool cool !

    Other than the background tone laid across your left shoulder...right hand corner...there is not a ton to say, except for the fact that I would love to see how far you can take one of these at six and eight hour time frames. For 3.5 hours you hit this one spot on. Virtuoso marks. Clearly you are painting quite a bit. I am genuinely curious to see what you do when you have more time on an image like this. My only other comment would be to take a look at Sargent, Zorn, and velasquez portraits. You will find the brushstrokes on the head follow the forms of the skull and features, rather than just diagonal across the forehead. Just something to explore...

    Keep up the hard work and there is no stopping where you will be able to go with your art.

    hello Jason thanks for useful comment and your kind words.
    how can i level up my skill to paint portraits? drawing from master painters can be level up my skill or i need analyzing them ? i have no academic education in art . i'm a computer software engineer.do you know any useful references for someone like me or a way to a professional painter ? its my sketchbook link. i will be very grateful if you have a look in to my sketchbook.

    Striking portrait. There are a lot of subtle diagonal strokes that creates this kind of vibrating energy. Not much critique from me. Perhaps a very subtle tweaking of your earlobe? I feel like it could be defined a bit around the edge. . . not too much.

    You are on the right track. I would suggest that you work through the levelup assignments as you are doing. We will help all we can. Regarding the portraits, when you do composition 1.1 just do a lot of portraits from Sargent, velasquez, Bouguereau, Rembrandt etc...their secrets will reveal themselves to you.

    For a software engineer you paint quite well and have an opportunity to really go far as an artist too. I look forward to helping you as you need and will take a look at your sketchbook.

    Aside from the master studies you can really focus on drawing and painting portraits from life whenever you can. I have also put some additional assignments in levelup's stage 1 area for additional training, which would be of benefit. For now I would focus on master studies and drawing and painting from life, even if it is more self portraits.

    I would like to see some stages in your works...like 15 min, 30 min, 60 min, 90 min etc... I would be very curious to see the process you are using.

    This one is also very strong. The likeness is different in each image...more like brothers. For the next one, slow down and measure more before you fill in the details. Do not start rendering until you get the portrait mapped out to perfection, both in capturing the mood you want as well as the physical likeness and structure. All are very important as I believe you are already aware. As far as rendering of the forms and structure, you are doing that very well, I just want to see you be more honest about what you are seeing...honest to the truth found in nature, and what you are seeing with your eyes. Great work.

    Ok great. Your process is very structural in it's approach which is one i prefer to see used. Nice job. This process will later help you improve your imagination work as well. Construction...it is all about building forms and putting light on them.

    i am wondering if your ear is drawn a little bit low. I would think it lines up more with your eyeline and the bottom of your nose.
