    Looks like weed enhanced art. I'm a fan of that kind of thing. Is that bird poop on his head? That's nuts man.

    The best way to hunt in a mushroom forest is to climb on the back of a butterfly.

    I'm curious to see what you draw aside from faces. Are you only interested in portraits, or do you paint other subjects that you're not showing us for whatever reason?

    As for this specific picture - The major issue is his hair. It's not very well rendered in general. I thought David was just messing around, but the blond locks do unironically look like shit because of the color and shape. The birds in the background don't do that any favors either. Actually, the way you drew the beard and eyebrows would've been a lot better than how you drew his hair anyway.

    You're still verging between the line of stylistic competence and mediocrity. You'll only get better at what you do if you practice more​.

    The hair has a cotton textured brush rendering. Explain why do you find it mediocre? Is it just the hair? If so, did you just avoid the deligent work on everything else to label it such?

    As I said on your last piece your method for painting portraits doesn't translate well to a digital medium, you need to practice more digital stuff to come up with more efficient and better looking methodologies. At the moment it really doesnt work. Why not try doing digital landscapes and carry on doing traditional portraits, that way you're not relearning a bunch of things and spreading yourself too thin. Textured brushes and smoke brushes require a lot of practice to use in a way thats not garish.

    Also where is the 777?

    The way I paint digitally is very consistent to how I paint traditionally. The criticisms about my painting with exception to the hair have been relatively vague. I think this painting was a fundamental success. I don’t know what to say if you don’t like the style?����♂️
