    Struggling with rendering

    Hi,
    I've been in a major block lately and everything I try to paint just ends up looking dirty and/or like Hillary Clinton. What have I been doing wrong and how do I fix it?

    So my critique is just based off of the color and light. I feel that two things would improve this piece. 1. Darker occlusion shadows on the creases of the mouth, the nostrils, the eyelids where they meet the eyes. 2. The whole eyeball including the white of the eyes, the pupil, and iris are too warm in comparison to what the skin is saying about your lighting. As a general rule, the whites of the eyes will be a cooler shade than the skin. In your case, they are warmer than the skin and it's creating a jaundice look.

    I think you could use some more colour wariation in the skin. Right now everything looks a bit monocrome. Aboute the proportions; The shin is a bit smal, so maybe you can make it bigger och move up the mouth a bit so it's closer to the nose
