    yep easy to get distracted withthe bells and whistles and not think about the art. BTW you should try to paint your GF from life rather than photo... it'll have less of that stiff plasticine look about it and more feeling. If you can get her to put up with it

    more Art....faster!

    That one's a huge improvement, dig the rendering on the jeans. A problem is the sharp and dark lines on her face, it brings out parts a bit too much and doesnt seem natural.

    I LOOOOVE how the girl came out. The hair, face, and clothing looks beautiful. But those hands need some help! I know hands are horribly difficult, but zoom way into your reference photo, and (as hard as it is not to) try NOT to think of them as hands so your brain can use the reference better. Yeah, I know I know yada yada, but it will work if you can get it down right. Some people flip the reference over and their art, and try to draw it upside down so that they can get down the accuracy better.

    the self portrait one is coming about pretty nice, but you need to pay more attention to detail on the spartan, especially in the stomach area. Remember with acrylics that you can water down, and do lots of layers to make soft transitions of form. also painting from dark -> light can help a lot, especially when using layers of buildup.

    show this sucker some love and really work hard on it.

    Dude that new portrait is tight. Cant say more than texahol,but yeah, the dark browns make the abs stick out too much. The blue one is great though! Got the expression down there.

    Is that masonite? Oil or Acrylic?

    It was Illustration board and Acrylic. It turned out OK, one of the better ones in the class I think. It's still nothing I'm proud of particularly. I'm hoping to get it back tommorw and I'll show you the final.

    Here's a sketch dump. Selected ones. Taken with a digi-cam because the Uni's scanner likes to pick up pages behind the one I'm trying to scan. So, yes, poor quality. Nothing really good in here either, ART CLASSES take up all of my good drawing time while simultaneously not improving my skills much.

    Oh, thanks for the link bob, I'll check it in the morning.
