    Your two latest portraits are looking awesome, it must be a great opportunity to learn from William Whitaker himself.

    When you're working from photographs, what size are they usually ? Also, is there anything to watch out for when taking the photos yourself (if you want to be able to produce a good drawing from it) ?
    Thanks in advance.

    so...like...can i live on your couch?

    the g must be for great
    OH HO HO I AM SO CLEVARRR

    really great to see your studies I think the 'floaty' eye that idiot mentioned could be the location of his right [viewers left] eye, it seems a bit far out from the nose...as well as the value of the sclera in relation to the skin.

    man, those portrait are awsome!!
    specially the expression of each of them .. You were really able to feel e put what the person was thinking through your art ...

    Very good indeed,

    Best,

    Hello, Emily...I appreciate the work you are doing... I tried to create those gentle changes of value while movings away from a source of light and it is really hard thing to maintain and notice...So easy to put too much contrast... You are doing very smart and sophisticated studies... after that you can apply any color at all ... any hue... right value will give you a lot of freedom to experiment. And I appreciate that not one value is the same on the face while moving away from light... light is gradually changing with growing distance... So fine...
    I like that it is alive people in those portraits and more of it, portraits are done with certain associations in mind as I see it... I for example fly into beginning of the 20th century looking at those solemn calm faces... quite the same expression people's faces took when they patiently waited for their first photograph, daguerreotype...a significant event in life of every person of the time, rare and appreciated. So... I like the expression of self-esteem and understanding of importance and extraordinarily of the happening. That makes me feel closer to the past, those far away people appreciated quality and had manners.

    OK... I wanted to tell you though that I agree with guys' observation... eyes are a bit wonky in both portraits IMO... I think the reason of this is that you placed eyes one after another on straight line ... but they should be on the parabola, placed in perspective.
    Imagine the head as a cylinder and lines of mouth, nose, eyes, eyebrows as circumferences... I would add though that eyes should be placed slightly sloped to those circles... not parallel strictly to the line of lips for example...


    Well I did some corrections... if you are willing to take a look here...
    Please disregard it of course if you don't agree.

    In the first portrait I rotated eye from my left a little and moved it lower, maybe a bit too low though...

    In the second portrait one eye from my right is a tad too low.

    I'm blown away by these. I really really wish I had the talent to draw like you do, but don't and probably never will. The bearded men are fabulous....wait, what did I just say? Truly though, amazing stuff.

    These are fantastic emily. You are doing really awesome. You've made some really mature and intelligent choices in both of these last portraits. You are kicking some serious butt!

    AmontilladoAg--Awe, that's so sweet! thanks.
    VampireHungerStrike--Definitely! It feels very immediate.
    dCept--haha, thanks! Nice to see you here.
    lennon--thanks!
    DeMoon--thank you.
    Molly--thank you so much! Nice of you to drop by.
    reidaj--Yes, I am using photos, and I really appreciate your comments about the drawings looking like they were done from life. That means a lot to me.
    Idiot Apathy--haha, thanks.
    Zord--oh, thank you. I like your comments about the seriousness/softness.
    Looped_Warrior--heh, that's great. Once you spend hours and hours on a piece, you know you can handle anything.
    wim--The photos are either 8 1/2x11 or 11x17 (done by taping two printouts together). I would say when taking your own photos to watch the lighting and values. Have simple lighting that comes from above and to the side. You can adjust the values in photoshop to bring out areas that are too dark and get lost in shadow.
    Texahol--hahahah! Mmm, thanks for the comments. I see what you mean.
    the_allejo05--thanks. I'll be doing cast work in a little while.
    brunopicinini--thank you, I appreciate it.
    sve--thank you for your comments on what you see when you look at the portraits. It is very interesting to me to read your perspective. Also thank you for taking the time to show me what you think about the eyes.
    Dougbot--haha, thanks! I appreciate your comments a lot.
    stalsby--thank you!
    patdzon--I guess so! thanks
    BurntUmber--thanks.
    MindCandyMan--Jon, thank you for your comments. They mean a lot to me considering the sensitivity with which you handle your work.
    Anthriel--thank you.
    Bojee--Thank you so much and thanks for stopping by.

    Here's a drawing I just finished. I took a lot of time with this one, making lots of little tiny adjustments.

    very very nice :]

    I'm wondering, in this image and the first portrait of him http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...8&d=1184130494

    the lines that are around the head, out on the page, are they consciously placed, or are they remnants of the earlier stages of the drawing?

    Great subtle value changes on that last portrait, and nice choice of medium to represent her. Awesome.

    That last portrait to die for. I guess the time you spent on it, making sure it was all perfect was well worth it.

    The relationship between the top of the ear and the head wrap is done very well. The ear is there, with just a small hint of shadow.

    Very nice.

    I want you to hit me as hard as you can
