I will be dedicating this thread to my daily paintings. The thing is I'm putting my portfolio together, and I need more paintings, so I will be doing one painting a day until I have a few to choose from.
I did this painting yesterday, with ref, and about it took me about 6 hrs. In the ref, the head was cut off at the nose, and the legs stopped where I stopped painting them. What I'm really looking for is some feedback, whether it be about something you like, or don't, or just plain hate. I pretty much invented the face out of my hea, and think that it needs improvement. So if you guys can give me some feedback on that I'd appreciate it. What I'd really like is a paintover of the head, If possible of course.
i don't like all that dead space i have there. Should I cut it off, or just leave it?

There's a couple of mistakes I see. Because I started the underpainting in a dark bluish green color, eventually it came through, so overall the painting is sort of dark and I'm not too sure if it works or not?:confused:
There's too much dead space which I'm thinking of cutting off, but I don't know it that's a good thing or not. I painted it on canvas board btw.
Well, Im iffy about the head, cuz I had no ref to follow.
Please give me some crits or comments so I can learn from it with your help. Especially if someone does a paintover.
--Check back tomorrow for the next piece!--
