Welcome aboard - looking forward to seeing your 20th as well. You're getting kind of a comic-style dark outline around your large masses... His left hip against the sky, for example. Did you draw the outlines of the figures first with a dark brush before laying in the "paint"?
Nice work. You are on the right path for sure. Your shapes and values are coming along well. Be sure that you are keeping a close eye on your edges. Note where the sharpest sharpest sharps and softest soft edges are and use them as guideposts/landmarks for the rests of the edges in the image. Edges are important to space, form, and focal areas, so getting those in there will help the piece a lot. Once you do, you will see quality improve a lot. Keep up the great work. -jm
Great to see you pushing crisp edges on the most recent...it is far less blurry and is a nice study. You are doing good work here. We need to keep pushing for the full range of edge accuracy and clean a few things up with values and shapes...I would also like to see a bit more analysis too as these are, above all, composition studies. Again...great work.
These are getting progressively better with each one. I really like seeing that happen. good work.
You are getting about 90 percent there with the three most important things...shapes, values and edges. are you flipping your images horizontally and vertically every minute or so to check accuracy?
Make a pass at the end where you double check the following, in this order.
At this point all I think that is needed is double checking things at the end in a quality control pass...so to speak.
