Hello everyone. As the the title states, this will be my first post on the concept art forums.
I've recently been encouraged to give more realistic painting a shot and so I went ahead and did up two different portraits. From what I can gather after these initial two is one, I need to watch my proportions and two, I should make the initial sketch a bit more thorough (I've just been doing an "alla prima" technique if you will call it that). So, I came here to get help on the for initial sketches, how to go about them, how i might go about blending together the different strokes I've made, and whatever else you think I should improve for that matter! Images were made using bamboo pen (ctl-460) on adobe photoshop cs6
Thanks for the feedback!
