    Hot damn. Nice work! The values are very very very close. Squinting, the only thing I can spot is his arm, which I think is a smidgeon too bright. Can't wait to see more.

    It's like one of those "can you spot the differences" games!

    Wow, you have very good control of your lines/brush strokes. What I can see is that the people in the last image are a bit too small compared to the original and the values are brighter or darker sometimes (like the clothing on the man in the front is darker, the wall is brighter, etc). But for one hour your study is pretty cool regardless!

    Yes definitly, there is a problem with the size of the characters. I'll try to fix that.
    Another romantic scene (i love that).

    Your studies are really great! Those last two are my favorites! I would suggest at least trying to get all the base shapes / values first and then going in to define them so you don't end up missing characters in the ones with a lot of details. : )

    These are getting progressively better with each one, which is awesome. Your shapes were quite a bit off early on and that is resolving a lot in the most recent images. Keep pushing for accuracy there. Your values are looking good.

    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.

    a. shapes.
    b. values
    c. edges

    At this point all I think that is needed is double checking things at the end in a quality control pass...so to speak.

    Keep up the great work.

    -ricknos, thank you, i know that, I imposed the restriction of one hour, to see which way I manages my time. This allowed me to realize that I lost time on the details.

    -Thank you curry23 ill try it.


    -Thank you so much Jason.
    I'm going to follow your advice carefully

    Sieffert Study - 2h

    the picture is complicated. there are many different area and small value. What makes the reading of the image in black and white little obvious. However, the deep black of the bottom of the boat, and the pile of salt in the background, holds the picture structure because of the contrasts.

    Wow, your brushwork is amazing! I really like how you simplify these details, especially in the clothing of the first image. My favorite is the Sieffert study. I would just darken some of the values like the main guy on the left and on the right side but it would be worth it since you captured the character gesture/poses so well.

    As usual super nice work! Just one very small comment about her eyes that change a little bit her mood : on the original her eyes are slightly open, with a disainful mood; on your study she seems to have closed eyes which give her a more sleepy look

    These are excellent so far. I think that you are mostly missing a pass on your edges at the very end, to crisp up the sharpest edges and soften down the softest edges. Watch for that at the end...once you go through that pass the image will take the next step in quality. I would love to see some more analysis from you as i want to know what you think when you are doing these. You are another one here who is making it look easy. Keep up the great work.

    Jason thank you for your good advice. I do not tend to rationalize my process, im rather instinctive but ill try for the next one.
    On this one, the woman is the light source so everything clear tones are mostly on her. shadows between her and the sofa gives relief to the image thanks to the contrast

    awesome studies, you are going very well, I'm seeing your improvement *-*
    in your last work I missed a more darker values on the top left part, and on sofa( or divan), the woman is a bit shorter than the original, but you did a good job on the edges, I liked your brush work on the pillows on the left.

    Thank you Cindyaa,
    i know, there are some problems proportion on last one. I try improve that point.
    One next one i spend more time, cause i really like the painting (bouguereau) and the romantic theme too.
