    Well if you take a look michelangelo's study here he defines planes by direction of marks like he's going over form with pencil and remember when plane change then value as well change

    Not expert but paintover, fixed bit of structure and added bit more contrast, hopefully this helps, if you like soft portraits take a look Eugene Carriere

    Edit: what I forgot to say if you can study old person, it actually helps you to see underlying forms like muscles better as they are more visible

    I have been working a bit more on my copies. Fixing drawing areas and repainting the collar. This is like the second round of learning, where it's like, what does it take to get the effect one step closer? Now I'm using semi-transparent layers of paint and impasto, and redrawing important shapes.

    Hey Joe. I really like those last two life drawing poses. Its difficult to get everything right when someone is laying down like that. You did a great job there.

    Nice to see how much work you've been doing! I really really like the lifedrawing in post 73, the pose is super cool and you've captured it accurately but I think the whole expression of the pose is so well captured and exagerrated by the movement of the dark that you've put in the background, that drawing really caught my eye, super awesome! All other lifedrawing is looking good too, it's good to see the improvement from that self portrait that you've updated lately, it went from a clear drawing to a slightly blurry realistic photo, crazy nice improvement. And you got more handsome too so improvement everywhere! Keep at it man, doing really well.

    Haven't posted in several months already. But I'm still truckin'. I often feel a bit lost. Sometimes I feel really excited, like I'm really getting somewhere, and then I crash and it seems hopeless. I guess that's why they say painting is easy when you don't know how. The drawing instructors at my college cannot draw. But they believe that they teach drawing in "a very traditional manner", but it's truly so far off the mark it's grotesque. This leaves me stuck. I can't criticize without questioning their competence (my implications have been violently rejected) but I can't support their teaching either. This dissonance over the years has left me bitter, and has impeded my progress as much as anything else. In order to move forward I need to let it go.

    Yeah of course. I'll graduate this year, so it's really too late for that. I was really ready to leave last year but my parents thought I should finish my degree. I would have just switched schools but there's nowhere to go! Every university art program as far as I know is the same or worse. After school I want to go to an atelier if I can afford it.

    I wanna thank everyone that has commented on my work and been supportive. I'm happy with the progress I've made since joining the site. I am entering a new phase of my life however, and though I think I will be continuing my studies, I've realized that every year I get further and further away from concept art and commercial illustration which is what this site is all about. It was something I was fairly interested in when joining years ago, but now have no intention of pursuing. The site has helped me grow a lot, but I do no believe it is any longer on my path to success. Because of this among other reasons, I think I will be leaving CA, or at least not posting with any regularity any more.

    I know I am just one voice, but I’d love to see your continued progress. I am not looking to be an illustrator or concept artist. I am looking to be a traditional painter and joined the sight to rub electronic elbows with artists because I know no artists irl. It’s nice to see progress from someone who does stuff you are doing.
