    Great master copies everyone. There's one piece of advice I'd give though that I think everyone could utilize in this thread.

    When doing a master copy, try to capture everything about the original, the technique, the exact form, value, edges, EVERYTHING. You want yours to be indistinguishable from the original.

    The true value in doing a master copy comes from the intense study of trying to do exact replication, no matter how painful, as the nuances really begin to pop at you and you begin to understand a bit what the artist was doing and how he did it. Additionally, it will really hone your hands and your eyes. Don't be ashamed also if you takes you a long time to finish a master copy. It's meant to be an exercise moreso than a work all your own. Although the pride you gain from doing a great copy and the knowledge you gained from it is definitely all your own.

    There is no way to do a meaningful "copy" without it being a "study." The pieces that work show thought about major masses and reflect awareness of why the artist made his/her choices.

    Studying from the masters can serve many purposes. Quick studies can be done to think about composition. We seem to learn better by moving our hand than by just looking. You can choose one artist at a time and do a daily composition study eithe in color or black and white, just looking for the movement of tone and/or color, the gesture through the page or canvas. After awhile one feels a more intimate knowledge of the artist and his way of organizing the page. Early on i also did two copies of Degas pastels - in oil. It forced me, among other things, to use my brush differently. It also helped to feel how he pulled colors through his page. I know it had a positive impact on my own painting. I'm tech challenged ( and older than most of you) but hope eventually to figure out how to post work.

    PS Sketch Monkey, what a beautiful and sensitive copy!

    Why ashamed Shantih? I like these drawings, especially the Michelangelo. You got some great lines (gotta love his arm), wish I had such control of linework! Keep it up

    Woke up this morning, found out my signature was gone..

    Take a look at the Rijksmuseum website as well, they have an extensive catalogue with hi-res images of pieces by the old masters.

    Here's a master copy I did of a self-portrait by Rembrandt in which he pictured himself as the apostle St Paul.
    Done in photoshop with the purpose to study the master's way of lighting and the many different variations in color he used in this particular masterpiece.

    Another one from me.

    Thsi is after Pierre Paul Prud'hon

    Mine is 18x24, blue strathmore with white chalk and Conte pencil, his is 11x17
    Again, Im having trouble finding my way with the back muscles. I have my Simblet anatomy book next to me, and my Hogarth aswell, but still, I get lost very easily. Ill just keep going! I aslo feel very clumsy whith the mediums, and I am lacking the subtelties (sp) and value ranges. Lets hope the next one is better.

    Here's a John Williams Godward study I've been working on a for the last couple of days. I've got no idea how long it took; probably 6-9 hours. Godward does lovely portraiture, and I had a lot of fun trying to decipher how he managed to make the blush of the face blend in with the paleness of her neck.

    I didn't paint the marble, as you can tell; what little texture is there is just an overlay layer I slapped on because I had to stop working on this so I could do my REAL homework.
