    Trying to find my style

    Hello guys.




    I'm new to this forum, and hope you can critique my work.
    I will try to help out too, of course.

    I am drawing since around 7 years now, mostly manga, and started painting about a month ago.
    Now I really don't know how good/bad I am, and hope you can give me your honest opinion.

    Also if you know what I can fix on this painting, I would love to hear your tips.
    LG Kyle

    That's a good start. Currently, the main focus is on the belt as that's where you have pushed the values the most. Don't be scared to wreck it as you will destroy more paintings in the future, but the face does need more work, colour and value wise.

    Damn you're right! I didn't see the value problem with the belt. Thanks for that one.
    Yes, I know I should try to overpaint the face, giving it more depth.
    I will try to fix the issues that you pointed out, thanks for your help!

    I tried to push the values a bit more, and this is how it went.
    Was afraid of destroying it so the changes are rather subtle.
    I will try to incorporate your tips in my next paintings better, thanks again for your help.
