    Cricketts801-Color and light 1.1

    What I took from this study is that the darker tones do not have nearly as much detail as you would think even if the shadow or tone is not completely black. I was trying to stick with big brush strokes and had my lighting set up to try and give focus to one part of my face.

    Bump!

    Oh dear, cricketts, I'm afraid you got overlooked.

    Great start. You got the mood down, for sure. I feel like the mouth is really sharp and it's drawing attention away from your eyes. Maybe you could bring some sharpness to the eye? or de-emphasize the mouth a bit?

    Thanks Grumpysaur. I agree with you I did make the mouth to sharp and I went to dark on the value as well as make the eye sharper I think I will do another self portrait. Thanks again.

    Great job on the beard! Although maybe it will be more visually pleasing if you keep the beard as dark as possible in the areas where it exists in shadow? Also I agree with Grumpy, it's a good portrait, but it needs some more observation. Maybe a Sargent study or 2 for composition 1.1?

    Cheers,

    Jeffrey
