    Very nice start and great choices for paintings to study too.

    When you are first getting started it is very important to really focus in on the mapping out of your shapes as accurately as you can possibly get them. If you put a shape in the wrong place and commit you end up having the other shapes off and require fixing, which increases painting time. By taking just a few extra minutes early on to measure out your shapes, to compare your shapes, and be sure they are placed and drawn accurately will make the rest of the painting process, working out your values and edges, much much easier.

    You should flip the images horizontally and vertically so that you see the shapes with fresh eyes. This should be part of the process and if you are already doing that, keep doing it more. The professional artists will often flip images or use a mirror to see with fresh eyes as many as three or four times a minute as they are working when things really get flowing. You can also back away...actually get up and back away...and doing this works for shapes as well as checking values and edges.

    Keep up the good work.

    Thank you Jason! I tried to take what you said into account on this one. I really tried to focus on mapping out my scene better before working on my forms and values.

    ^ I realized I forgot Napoleon's cloak when I uploaded this the first time. I don't know why it's wanting to upload 2 copies rather than just replacing my old one. *shrug* So, sorry about that
