    You're really doing well, Miles. Drapery needs a bit of work, but a great effort nonetheless.

    Nice work Miles! The new more painterly look in the background and hair with the smudge tool is working very well for you, and I hope you continue in that direction. Oh, and congrats on making the front page of Reddit .


    Other than things that were already mentioned on Reddit such as the hands, I did notice one other thing. The face seems a little off. I did a little paintover to help explain, but basically I think what happened is you didn't notice the construction on it was off because of the strand of hair covering the face. So, I showed you how I would fix it--the problem was that the bridge of the nose was too long, and the whole nose/mouth area was very far forward. You can see this easier when I painted in the face as though the strand of hair in front was not there. I just lassoed the whole nose and mouth then moved it to the left (I also rotated it clockwise very slightly so her jaw and chin weren't so prominent). One other small change was the shape of the jaw which I made more of an "L" shape rather than a straight line.

    Hope that helps

    EDIT: Looking at it again, you can probably move the ear a bit up and to the right as well.

    i dunno,

    i think the original moves better, the PO stops your eye, the original sends it in the direction of the wind along with the hair.

    From one point of view I can agree with you about keeping solidity within construction and form when creating idealized figures, but the changes to these subtle imperfections seems more like artistic bias from one artist aesthetic choices to another which Is perfectly common amongst us, but I wouldn't call a critique. I think your paintover has its merit as well but in the end I personally like subtle imperfections and slight elongations to form and structure. These are the custom fabrications to a work of art.

    I just wanted to let you know that you are actually my main inspiration right now mainly due to your commitment/age/works. Not those big names like Ryan Church or Feng Zhu but you kid have become my light at the end of the tunnel that I can do this. Keep it up man!

    there are several (hundred) ways of dealing with that compositionally. Not fixing the anatomy just because of an angle, isn't one.

    You already know what I think Miles, but yeahhhhh gotta join the rest and say awesome work!

    Firstly, I really didn't expect the response I got from posting that last painting on reddit :s In the end the mirror on imgur got approximately 270,000 hits, which blew me away and has led to some possible work too

    Update of sketchy sketchy stuff, unfortunately I don't have a scanner so it all looks like shit, yay!

    We had this woman come in to teach an anatomy class, so it was basically two days solid of gesture drawing, 6 hours each day. It was pretty intense and we produced a lot of drawings with little care for the end result. The times for each drawings range from 2-7 minutes but never any longer.

    All of these drawings are from life

    This was filled on both sides for the first day, and half of an A4 sketchpad for the second

    Not sure why I shared them, they aren't good drawings but I learnt so much and I thought it might be interesting to see something a little different I dunnoooo

    Next is the charcoal bargue, wish I'd got a proper scan of this because I spilt water on this the day after I finished it! D:

    aaaand some things from the weekly portrait classes, great variety in ethnicity, age and gender of the models!

    This last drawings was one of the atelier pupils daughters who sat as a model, so it is meant to look like a young girl before anyone thinks the proportions are horribly off!

    Hopefully something better next time! Take care

    Looking good man! That last digital piece looks like a real step in the right direction, the brushwork is looking fantastic. Thanks for sharing that bit about reddit too, always great to find new promotional tools.

    Hello hello! Too long, I didn't die I swear.

    Some things from school, none are particularly good I'm afraid but I suppose that's why I'm here studying haha!

    Firstly, these are 3 hour poses, we are discouraged to not render at all, as much as we can resist, and focus on getting a strong structured drawing. Starting these daily at half 8 in the morning takes some getting used to! These aren't in chronological order

Views: 4186
Size:  205.4 KB

    Name:  life6.jpg
Views: 4152
Size:  163.9 KB



    These last two are two day poses (roughly 6 hours). Once again we are encouraged to focus on structure.

    Next, something from imagination I'm working on, plus a rescan of the portrait of the young girl.

    Here is where I've been spending a lot of my time recently, working on this cast, which is basically finished bar a few finishing touches tomorrow. I'm not all that pleased with how this turned out and plan to apply a few things I picked up about values to the next more complicated mask.

    Finally, I wasn't gonna include this since it looks so shitty, but what the hell, a work in progress of some Game of Thrones fanart. Robb Stark.
