Oh wow, very cool someone else pushing the oils!! Very exciting i'ld push the values a bit more. Your proportions are slightly off but you're almost there. Good to see that you are back Ivan haven't seen anything from you in a while are you busy?? Anyhow glad you are back!! Keep up the good work!!
hey ivan, congrats on page 4!
portrait is looking fine, the eyes are still a little tto bright for my taste though...
very nice studies then - breaking down the form into simple shapes sems to work really good for you. i can see some little issues with proportions here and there (e.g. the head on the lower left sketch looks quite big) and you clearly seem to dislike feet (just as myself). see you around! cheers
Good gestural drawings just try loosen up with the contruction lines correct those lines when you start tighening up the drawing. Remember the stuff you learnt from your recent portait apply and improve on those areas and those things you found difficult will get easier and easier to do next time. Good going, laters.
hey ivan! digi's looking good, like how you did the hair. dunno about the collarbone (hope that's spelled right) though. it looks a little curved, i think. looking forward to see the painting finished! cheers
Right, be wary of oversimplifying and underobserving the collar bone. Remember to model specifically, so don't conciously draw from your knowledge of anatomy (to generalize and mistake the form). Keep with it.
I first want to apologize for not giving hasty feedback, you are a member of my sketchbook and you deserve critique from your sketch buddies. To comment on your work you have improved so much very much your painting and rendering skills in photoshop have come a long ways. Imo you need to work a little more on yoru structure when drawing the figure specifically anatomy studies. Look at more reference from great anatomy artists. Use reference copy copy copy them. I am in the process of drawing from the bridgeman he has great rythm and anotomical structure. I like your painting but try adding in more drawings.
Hey Ivan where do you get off telling someone that there drawing isn't good,?!?
I will make myself clear, saying that someones drawing isn't good is not what you call constructive criticism. Second what do you mean Egyptian heads what the hell does that mean. Please explain yourself if you're going to relate someones work to some other art style. I don't see how they look egyptian?! What the hell does that mean anyways?? Please its called constructive criticism for a reason. Your gibberish isn't making any sense and if you can't make yourself clear than don't comment at all in my sketchbook. You got it!!
I'm glad i've made myself clear. Now i would like it if you're going to comment in my sketchbook that you comment with more clarity and common sense. Oh and another thing the arms are not too short i made the legs long on purpose.

The last digital painting looks great, I think you should render it a bit more, try some custom skin brushes, it would take the work to a much more realistic level. I just looked at your entire SB and you've improved a lot since you first posted here. Keep them coming and say hi to Sofia for me
