Hey all, first post for me; joined up a while back, but as I draw exclusively for my own enjoyment Didn't find the need to post - just been watching and learning. A little about myself to start with: I'm 36 (37 in a matter of days) completely self taught (well except for high school art class) and as I already said deff. not a pro.
I'm posting 'cus I finally want some crit/feedback. I'm currently doing a portrait of a friend (graphite - don't do paint. would like to just never learned) - He's a painter. I think I pretty much have it there is just something that isn't sitting right with me about this. I still have work to do on the eyes, and I'm not to happy with the nose either. What do you all see? as well as what's not working I'd like suggestions as to why and possibly some ideas to fix it. (I know I'm asking a lot). Is there sufficient tonal range? did I screw up by using blk. conte for the hair?
