I had a lot of fun doing my self portrait and thanks for the video.....
It was very helpful
this is a good start. Good expression too. Subtle. I think that given your complexion is deep, that you might be well served to either double check your lighting pattern, to see if you can get a bit more contrast to your value shapes, or perhaps up the lighting just a bit. I think you probably have enough lighting happening but could just use some more time observing. The chest and shoulders still need some work as it looks unfinished at the moment.
keep it up!
hi obi, great one, it feels like you already have a good understanding of the structure of the face! i really would like to see this with a bit more pushed values, and you could lose your edges a bit more around the face, especially on your sweater.
hey Jason, thanks for the reply....
I was finding it difficult to match the values on my face because the half tone and the reflectivity changes a lot and it was confusing....
In my second attempt I first tried to simplify the face in only two values and ignore all other in between values....
I learned that: very small value changes are enough to show form changes, and high contrast value changes show drastic form changes....
hey thanks Mister Janchichan....I uploaded a new one with a bit more refined edges....
and the structure of my face is very simple....its just like the side view of a Christmas tree....lol
nice start. I want you to be very deliberate with your shapes. Pay close attention to how the shapes of light and shadow wrap around the forms. It might be wise to do a master copy of velasquez painting Juan de Pereja as he does such a fabulous job of painting the light on the forms and using brush strokes that follow the forms at the same time.
