    Been busy with tests and other things. Hopefully, finals and other stuff won't keep me back too long. Moreover, the 2 week hiatus messed up my flow.

    looking good, progress wise...your lightest light shape is a bit bigger than the original. keep a close eye on your values and you will get this down well. keep it up.

    you flash; it's looking good. you need to get rid of those whites though. if I'm not mistaken, the only true white in this image is in the old man's shoe. I say just use brightness/contrast to darken the whole thing up, then add that little white to the shoe and continue. having the wrong pure whites in your image make getting values down such a drag, really

    Well, try to forget they are ballet dresses.. They are just areas of light-ish paint, grainy surface and soft fuzzy edges where light is low, sharp edges where the light is strong. When your brain tells you are making a ballet dress, remember that is just the illusion conveyed by the painting. Then try to really look at what there really is.
    Anyway, your values are bit too bright and sharp edged. Try a soft brush on the floor to blend the values a bit. Adjusting brush opacity down to 10-15% for the blending might help too.

    agreed with sam.

    a soft edged brush with a grainy edge...set to low opacity...so you can kind of build it up...will solve it.

    Funny thing is that I've didn't notice the little dog or gardening jar in the left corner:
    Note to self should at least work on the instructor and foreground dancer faces.
