your rendering skills with pencil are amazing. i look forward to seeing how this digital sketch turns out, it aready looks good. anyway, i just wanted to give some support, keep it up.
"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."

Check out my Sketchbook! Critique and Criticism welcomed.
diggin the last update, i gotta say i'm surprised you're not letting the pencils of the painting show through more since you've already rendered it so nicely (loved the sketch and gave it a go painting it myself haha )
Wow man, stunning stuff dude.
Glad Mr. Apathy got round to fixing the rating haha - these updates are great.
The "hire me" piece is my fave outa this batch,
that guy on the left is freaking me out.
Can't see anything to crit really,
and you seem to be well on your way with that painting.
About the photo referenced drawing that you tossed: I almost went mad with exactly the same kind of errors. I worked a pair-portrait for my friend and his gf. After two "practise" sheets I took a hard and blunt pencil and started slightly put down the main values. Suddenly it all went much easier, and I feel that the light value for beneath the clean crosshatching does quite nice touch.
Great job on the colors! I definitely suggest dropping by Peer Project 2, it's a fantastic thread. Once you get further along, you might want to go further with warm and cool colors. The second one in your last post is great, specifically the guy on the left. Very simplistic, but say's everything it needs to.
Keep it up man!
