Its been a crazy week and I've hardly had time to draw but never the less here are three more studies. I don't have time to elaborate on my decisions at this time but I'll log on tonight and do that part:
very nice improvements. the monet study is soooo close. if not for the tiny figure and her head being different this piece would be very difficult to know which one was the original. great job with your textures and surfaces on that one.
keep focus on accurate shape, then value then edge. Nose to the grindstone so to speak. Keep a mind on being as accurate as you can be.
great work. nice job on the values too. Mainly i think the face could use one more pass to push it to be as accurate as you can get it. The shape of her waistband area is wrapping around, and shown to be doing so by the dress elastic/belt or the like. The shape of her hips/ribs is a bit..less straight in shape, than how you have handled it in yours He wraps her forms carefully. Watch for opportunities like that.
