    I made one sketchbook some weeks ago it was acting up and I just can't find it again. If some mod can help me with this please delete the old one.

    Thanks ujjalloh.

    Lately I've been having some issues finishing pieces. As you can see last ones are mostly sketches. I'm trying to change that even if it only means to finish studies. This one is from life. It's almost done ...I hope

    Plus some awful progress pics, I really don't have an idea of how to simplify and exaggerate face features, so I just experimented a lot.

    Here is another wip, the last one was supposed to be an exercise to help me with this piece. Still far from done I suppose but any comment or critique is more than welcome

    Critique on your last post, Her eyes seem kind of dead compared to your other works, maybe more highlights would help

    Thanks and yes I see it now, the expression isn't really that interesting too. Sometimes, I wish it was less rendered so I could drop it.

    At least I finished this study.

    Fixed some proportions, especially on the eyes and did some minor things to the lightning.

    Ohhh I didn't realise you had a sketchbook here too! It's great being able to see your progress all in one go. Your studies really are helping you out quite a lot. Perhaps its time to start doing more studies including bodies. Your portraits have come a long way though.

    Your pear/apple study reall works well. The only thing that bothers me is the colors of the fruits that seems too saturated for the lighting on the scene.


    I like the colors of the green haired woman. Maybe pushing the contrast between the colors of her hair and her lips.

    As Lostcookie said, it would be nice too see bodies and maybe environments !

    Thanks as always for your support, you're right about the studies I will try to diversify as much as I can.

    I just finished the Audrey Hepburn study I was doing, it was very daunting.

    Thanks for the input.

    About the saturation it must be due to a widespread issue with the lcd panel of my laptop, not only it has problems with red hues but the keyboard scratches the screen and the logo created some pressure damage in the form or some white spots. I will never buy a VAIO again.

    As for the portrait, I feel ashamed of posting that revision, the current one looks considerably better. I will try to post it tomorrow after working a bit more on it.

    After some days that portrait still looks awfully off.

    Anyway... I started this one yesterday:

    Hi FiRez,

    Great sketchbook so far!

    You've come such a long way in such a short time, the Audrey Hepburn study is really nicely done.

    Looking forward to watching you progress over the coming months/years

    Keep it up

    Thank you guys! I only wish I had more time to apply myself, I'm afraid that now that I've posted most of what I had made so far I'm probably just going to post several wips and some aren't even going to get finished for sure :<
