the value study of the girl turned out super great, dude! *pats shoulder*
good to see that you´re doing alot of studies! the life drawings and dead animals looks very nice also.
keep kickin it, man. you´re doing alot of progress right now!
nice sketching going on. you really seem like the serious type
i was about to comment the portrait copy of that asian girl but then i saw you had updated it. But then I noticed the hair - it looked so noisy now how about doing another round on the hair where you use simple but stylistic lines (i assume you have a drawing tablet) and still keep close to the original. nothing wrong with stylizing a study afterwards you know
The lines on that Michelangelo study are oh so pretty, and those face studies aren't as crappy as you think. That value study looks pretty good, but almost a little contrast-y. Judging by the technical prowess you demonstrated with your last value study, I blame the photograph. Would you be willing to post the photo (if it's not too racy...) alongside the study like you did with the last one?
Sedig: Whoa, you're giving me way too much credit, haha.
'Technical prowess'? Come on, man, that's bullshit, lol.
The photograph is high contrast, the shadows are black and the highlights are about 80% gray or so, I bumped it up a slightly.
Besides, I didn't spend anywhere near as long on this one compared to the last one, not to mention I went overboard with the soft brush.
I'll post the original in a minute.
I bought a large mirror, yay.
Two fresh self portraits. Severely screwed up the eyes on the first one, they're almost two eye-widths apart. Had another go and made the same mistake again.
