    another dome for crits

    trying to get better at values. crits are welcome.
    as to my process to approach this craziness of painting.

    -very quick vauge drawing of major shapes. head, hair. placement of eyes nose lips, nothing else (except an indication of the core shadow because it was so dark).
    -laying down core greys, darker BG light face.
    -block in darks to shape face valumes. large brush.
    -smallish/mediam brush. pull out lights and control edges to create smaller volumes of eye nose, chin and lips.
    -then darkest darks and highlights
    -blend crap to create gradations.

    i'm having trouble with brush control and likness, but i think that will come with practice and more attention to my drawing.

    please, crits are MORE than welcome. i need to grow like a flower
    traditional is Soooooooooo hard for me. i can't get used to the material and have little control of my brush stroke size. anywho, thats for another time. i could use tons of help in that area.

    You said it right there my friend. More attention is needed.

    Anyway, i think the light setup is good for a portrait. This setup would provide a good distinction of forms. I find the eyes are a bit big and too wide apart, the bridge of the nose is also too wide, and the lips could be as well.

    I suggest you do this again BUT start of with a good drawing. Take your time, and make the drawing as accurate as you can. Pay attention to the relationships and meaurements of each element. You're drawing will act as a study for your painting so you can refer to it all the time.

    Goodluck.

    patdzon: thanks for the crit. don't think i wasn't listening because i took a while to respond.

    this time i slowed up the drawing. it is more accurate, but my cocern with these studies is value. i'd like to know what u think about my values. am i way off and weak. too much contrast, or not enough. or OK. what can i do to make it FEEL like form, make it feel stronger but still in a real world light environment.
    any suggestions on value and form are GREATLYYYYY appreciated.

    thanks all.
