    Nice job on that last oil.
    The skin is looking real good.
    The green background/green hair is a bit odd, and perhaps a bit too much yellow in the eyes. She looks somewhat jaundiced.
    The oil work is definitely making progress, big time.

    thanks max skin tones getting there but the structure is getting worse the green background, well, that's from left over paint on the palette .. the painting isn't close to being a keeper so I threw the left over paint as the background in to see what it would look like I should really use better quality oils than the ones I am learning with ... the ones I got it seems to be overly mushy and oily.

    no sketches with the reply spending too much time studying advanced Java.

    20 minute charcoal sketch of myself

    EDIT: out of all the portraits I've done, this is my first ever self portrait of any kind (can't believe I actually drew my own mug)

    nice self portrait. the ninja is cool too, but the self portrait is really nice. Only crit, is on the ninja, i feel like his torso should be shaded a little darker to make the arms pop out more. keep on truckin'

    thanks gigglepixie, max xiantu, and ArtZealot I should have spent more time than 20 minutes on the portrait it came out darker than it should have and it doesn't look remotely asian not to mention it looked like crap amongst all the refined pieces of work on that thread. Oh well, guess i have to wait until next year to redeem myself

    as for the ninja sketch, it could have used better contrast

    haven't anything to show except this that was done to go with the replies.
    Don't ask, I had no idea what I was doing.

    Asian! I thought you were Blasian based on the sp. A bit dark is right I suppose

    That last demon thang is interesting actually. I could see a narrative piece in color worked off that. Maybe show what he just put in his mouth.
    or not. however you feel :.

    Nice selfportrait,you are really improving fast .Maybe try drawing some things from life to mix with those from reference and to develop your observational skills.Also I think it will be nice to make some quick studies for example like those hand gestures you have made.
    Cheers,M

    Nice sketches, soft and gentle but with much detail, more full body shots!, its good for the anatomy training.
    Great oil at the top too.
    Keep it up

    heartbeat: thanks don't know if I can draw from life yet, I still get somewhat nervous sketching when there are people around.

    Lazy: thanks will try to do more full body sketches ...

    Pesmerga: thanks Oil painting is fun, well except when trying to mix the colors correctly, that can be quite frustrating.

    a couple more sketches that is going into the crappy unfinished stack.

    Edit: so used to sketching big, sketching small is really hard, not much of a margin for error

    blanquish: thanks though I don't know what would give you the impression that I am female

    max xiantu: thanks I try to do more full body sketches, but they don't seem to appeal to me like doing a portrait.

    for the last couple of days, I haven't been in the mood nor did I do any sketching. I think the extra time spent studying didn't help put me in the right frame of mind to do anything. Tonight, I started to doodle with a pen and this is the results of that. (no refs) will try and do more later on

    Haha! great job so far lee. Can definitely tell it's lefran. If you posted the ref then we could see the potential discrepancies you are hinting at.
    Otherwise...quite a steady improvement. My hat's off to you.
    Cheers!

    thanks helzon ... the overall structure of the face is correct but its the individual shapes of the features (mainly the nose) isn't correct. I concentrated on the structure and neglected the individual shapes

    here is another sketch that got screwed up, I really need to do these on better quality paper

    Great work on the sp there!

    I also like the graphite ninja fellow - he has a cool stance.

    Keep it up! :]

    The last value study of the face has a crazy-eyed look - kinda like Katherine Harris of Florida? LOL I do like the brown paper studies, they manage to overcome to low quality of the paper..."some of my best sketches are on brown paper" hehehehheh - keep up the good work!

    thanks madhatter106 I got the picture from an advertisement on that last portrait study. What caught my attention was her eyes and smile.
