    So I'm experimenting with using miniature setups for reference...it's super fun! I still haven't decided how much I want to rely on the setup...weather to just use it for structure/light or literally build it up to the last detail. I am going to turn the drawing above into a grayscale oil painting. Which I should also note is because I want to focus on value without color for the moment.

    Love the idea of creating minitures for ref. I need to do this myself... backgrounds are a weakness for me.

    In your sketch, I think you need to push the values more. Overall your image looks grey, the photo ranges from white to almost black. Push your values abit more.

    Great Idea, perhaps use darker blocks so that your whites don't get blown out. Your drawings will have a higher dynamic range if you can see whats going on in the highlights

    Also I definitely hear what you're saying about full range of values...the drawing is mostly just to setup the picture from the reference. I'm going to finish it as a black and white oil painting so that's when I'm going to get really deep into all the values.

    Ok so here's the finished product...sorry for the bad photo it's an oil painting and I'm not quite comfortable with scanning it yet. I want to make sure it's absolutely dry.
