    Looking good!
    Something felt off to me, but it's really not Interesting to see how much the areas you have yet to complete really contribute to the overall shapes and of course feel.

    I am kicking myself for not commenting sooner. Talk about a chance of a lifetime! These studies have really been allowing you to slow down and key into such subtleties and grace, especially in the first hand study. The current portrait feels only slightly heavy in the left jaw area, I don't know if you or William are allowing yourself to overlay the original and the master in photoshop to check for accuracy but it might shed some light. The differences are very subtle though, all in all your sensitivity and expression are improving tenfold and I'm slightly intimidated to see where you'll be at once this apprenticeship is up ^_~

    Inspiring and encouraging, I'll be checking here often!

    Your Fechin copy is really coming along nicely! I think you've also done a good job of capturing the textural effects of the original, and that is not an easy feat with an artist like Fechin.

    Ryan DeMita-- hey, thank you.
    Idiot Apathy--I constantly struggle wondering if things are off. I think I picked up a few things by looking at it this time and made some changes.
    Bojee--why, thank you very much.
    Steph Laberis--thanks so much for your comments and encouragement, Steph. Yep, you are right about that jaw-line--good eye. I hope you keep stopping by.
    reidaj--thank you. Yeah, it's hard capturing that texture, but I don't think it would look like his piece without it.
    John T--yes!! It's excellent training and I highly recommend it!
    bengine--thank you!
    Beelow--thank you very much. I love life drawing.

    Update.

    Fechin is making me excited to draw and paint!

    This is what I was talking about earlier;

    The dark lock of hair I think is a great accent and also sort of points to the eye - it's kind of like a foil bending your eye back into the main event you know?

    Beautiful!

    Thanks for the info about calipers...
    I felt cheating in a way...But if it's okay to use it, I'll continue doing it.
    How many are you planning on doing?

    That is friggin awesome that you are studying under a master. I found after I posted, Hope that your having fun, that is a luxury that most artist do not have. I wish I had the chance to study under William Whitaker. Good luck with your studies. I am interested to see how well you will develop. I like those copies alot. How well of training is it to do those copy studies for you personally, I remember doing them and it got me to realize some things especially value, and this was back in highschool when I was freshman. The results for me was refreshing, and it ment that I could actually do good work. I wish I would have done more master studies back then. But, I was always more interested in my own creativity, I love lifedrawing as well. I plan on doing some studies here at my crib, because I can't make it to an open session at AILV here in Vegas. I miss my life drawing and it is making me a very sad panda. Poop...

    see - you were right not to marry me - you aimed for the sky and you're on a spaceship now. Boy, you go so far. So proud each time i see your stuff.
    Hope all goes well - tons of hugs from the other side of the plannet.
    Say HI to Will - hope to see you (both) soon.
    My oils are still on my table - time and guts it's all i need now
    Looove...

    Idiot Apathy--oh right. I’m waiting on that until I decide whether to put it in or not.
    bhanu--thanks. Yeah, I think they did study from old masters because it’s such a good way to learn.
    Bard--I draw things using my eye first, and then I use the calipers to check myself and see how close I am. I’m doing at least one more of these, I think. Let me know when you finish yours, and I will take a look!
    Beelow--thank you! There are two things I think I have learned from doing these. 1) I have learned to be a lot more accurate in my drawing, and 2) I have learned to be a lot more sensitive as I put down my marks.
    Oblio--Awe, you are such a sweetie. I hope to see you again soon, and go ahead and pick up those paints! Thanks for stopping by.

    Getting closer!
