    Dat Selfie. About 2.5 - 3h in Photoshop. I managed -more or less - to put a mirror. It has been difficult to lead with the little changes on the shadows that were result from moving my head while painting..I think I didn't get the same position for 2 times. I wanted to do it more rough, but I didn't manage at last. I'll try to continue working on this or redo-it later. ¿Any thoughts or recommendations?

    find and place your lightest lights.

    find and place your darkest darks.

    both should be small accents usually.

    applying some value range or texture to the background can help a lot.

    double check the eye position and be sure both are headed toward the same point in space your are focusing on...although not everyones eyes do that, as some have eye problems, if that is not the case, be sure your eyes are looking at the same thing.

    Thank you for the comments, Jason. I've tried to apply those things to the second one - still in progress. Comments or suggestions so far?

    coming along very well. value range is better. your eyes look a little big in this one. I think you need to pay very close attention to soft and sharp edges once you let your eye rest on the focal area. check the edges from that point, locked eyes onto the focal area and painting the information you see in peripheral vision. make sense? some of your edges seem overly sharp is why...and are not respecting how they fall around the forms.

    keep up the great work.

    An update..I think I caught better some aspects, but I also have the feel that It's wrong. I'll try to find what's going wrong with this.

    the only thing it seems to need is a few sharp marks in the hair on top of your head, the iris of the eyes seem a little large so maybe check the proportion there, and double check the value of the curved marks around the nostrils. it is a beautiful painting actually...the expression and mood are captured and handled well. you are very close.

    my only crit is very small as this looks great. the very bottom two mm of the chin could use a subtle value shift to suggest that the chin rolls underneath, form wise. that area is just a hint flat.

    Outside that I really enjoy this piece and think you have done a fabulous job.
