    I keep coming back to that most recent portrait, and staring...and staring
    Just...beautiful!
    people who crit the figure's right eye as off, could you be more specific? I'm not challenging you, I just want to understand. I keep trying to see the flaw, and I don't.
    I will say the beard loses form. The light that shines on the nose will also hit the beard and creat a pattern of lights and darks.
    This ogling session I was especially enjoying the subtlety of the shadow of the upper eyelid on the right eye and the shadow of the few stray hairs of the moustache on the lip.
    As I said in the thread which must not be named, I envy and admire you.

    bakatron--thank you!
    Atlantis--hehe, thank you very much!
    nonie--thanks, nonie. Yes, I will be doing cast drawing at some point soon.
    Stark--thanks so much.
    Idiot Apathy--This is another student who works with Bill. I think I can see what you're saying about the eye--something about the curve of the eyelid possibly.
    OldNoobie--thanks, and yeah.
    panchosimpson--oh, thanks so much! So glad to hear you mention Sargent's work.
    Bushido--thank you!
    Cory Hinman--thank you, that's so nice of you. About the eye, it may be the way the eyelids are formed that is giving the impression. I understand your point about the beard. My first inclination is to approach it with a lot of detail and modeling, but I am instead trying a way of simplifying things as masses.

    Ok, here is another portrait of the same person, done on a rough watercolor paper. I think this is one of my favorites so far, but sadly this guy has cut off his beard! NoooOOoooO!

    Fantastic! These actually make me want to draw with something other than a wacom. I need some dirty fingernails.

    Absolutely beautiful Emily, stunning portraits. Love the turban, and its a shame this fella cut off his beard, I love beards, and his is amazing...

    Exquisite work Emily!

    Your on quite a roll of late Emily! Really like this last one, the texture of his beard just melts on my eyes- good work with those subtle value relationships and soft edges.

    Your decision to keep it simple in the beard was right on target. The larger, more general masses in the darks keeps the viewer focused on the finer modeling in the halftones, which in this case would be the model's engaging expression.

    Your last two posts are from photographs right? You've done a good job in these last two drawings of looking beyond the limitations of photos to produce drawings that feel as if they've been done straight from the model, and thats not easy to do.

    Damn Emily, this one's really striking! I like how you captured the seriousness of the model with the soft touch. There's a cool interrelated dynamic here. Too bad he cut his beard off. It'd be funny if you did another portrait of him in the same position sans beard. Cheers!
