    Mainloop - I have been struggling with likeness for a long while now. Can never get those shadow shapes right. I probably draw/paint too much from my head(which doesn't quite work...) instead of observation.

    yeah its something thats taken me a lot of practice to get as well.. i try to focus mostly on the angles and shapes of the contours and shadow shapes, it helps a lot with getting a likeness down

    dark pop toy - Glad you liked it. It took 25 minute in studio on a 9" x12" canvas board with Acrylic.
