    Cool work so far. I like the way you draw faces - a little stylised but still realistic and well-rendered.

    The new painting is turning out nicely too! Keep up the good work

    nice work man keep it up! loving those oils! I think you could practice a bit more in anatomy, cause I think it's kinda faulty in some places. You're rendering is pretty neat aswell...

    @MoP:thank you very much, yes i still have to study reality... although it isn´t my first and highest aim

    @GriNGoLoCo: thank you too, well i love oil painting although i don´t know how to handle the preparations and the painting rightly....
    just experiments these days

    you are right with my anatomy knowledge... still have to learn muscles
    and bones.... just everything....


    buhh.. i can´t update today because i have to prepare a oral test
    for tomorrow... so there is less time for painting!

    I worked on my painting last night, about 2 hours or so...
    the result was....... it looks terrible!
    No depth... no correct proportions, no right choice of color...
    it is ugly currently.
    well i give it a try tonight... perhabs i can save it!

    ok here some sketches i did last days...

    Yes you are improving...
    But dont darken your pictures so much...a brighter scan or higher kontrast could work nicely..(unless im stupid and youre using toned paper )

    I like the portrait of Nov. 20 2004. Your third painting? Good work.

    nice work.. but something that really bugs me is that your faces have absolutely no change in expression.. all the same dull look.. sorry, maybe that is harsh.. but I think it would help if you studied facial muscles and expression for a bit.. keep it up! Just tryin to help...
    ( I have the same problems too.. hehe )

    @corky13: thank you man; i use my digicam for taking photos so i never will get a real white!

    @jacobsteel: thank you very much, yes my third oil painting,
    my main problem is it to get a useable ground where i can paint of....
    i do something wrong everytime i start!

    @teyekanik: merci, well of course it is not wonderful what you say,
    but i am not here for to be praised but for improving my skills...
    so you absolutely right with what u said;
    the thing is I like that thinking impression.... ok ok i try to learn that stuff (again)..... also because it is very very important... -look at Wes characters
    yes i got it!

    you have some very nice drawings you've developed a nice rendering style and i see you update alot. All good things the self portraits are nice might I suggest changing it up some and doing more than the standard straight foward portrait. Anyhow keep Posting!

    hey xaya, you have a great sketchbook going here. You have a great understanding of facial structure and it shows in your sketches, your shading isn't bad at all, I would suggest that you experiment shading closer together and think in terms of tones more. Also, try not to hatch such that people can play tic tac toe, it will allow for a smoother looking form. Anyway, good work! Keep it up!
