Hello everyone,
My name is Leath, I am from Brazil. Isnt that weird???

I have joined Cgsociety some years ago, but never actually posted anything.
Intimidated, I was... Too many pros here. :p

Wasnt until recently that I got a sudden interest in improving my drawing abilities.
I watched some videos from the YouTube user, EclecticAsylumArt, some from Bob Ross, and finally, a thread from MindCandyMan at ConceptArt forum; I must say that they got me REALLY inspired.

I have decided to start posting everything I draw in here, regardless if I like the piece or not, and hope to improve them slowly. Consequently, I hope to improve myself in a forseeable future.

I would like to thank everyone in advance for any critic, comment, tips, or any help you can provide me.

With no further adue. I decided to start my journey with the 30 heads anatomy lesson ( Rebeccak.

This first one, is a sketch from the piece of:
Title: Pietro Mellini

I intend to fully shade it, but when the sketch/lineart is not nice the final result wont be nice either T.T Took me 4 tries to come up with what I have right now, and yet I feel there are certain aspects that could be improved. Just cant quite put my finger on...
Thanks once again for any help =)

Yours, Leath

Started sketching:
Madonna Palafrenieri (detail)
Oil on canvas, width of detail: 47 cm
Galleria Borghese, Rome

I dont know where I failed mostly... I suppose the head wasnt wide enough, thus not giving the impression of her looking downward as in the original.
The one displayed was my second attempt.

The second one I used this picture for reference:
and came out with this:
I didnt quite get his expression right. I suppose the right side should have been darker...

Please, once again. If anyone has any tips for me to improve, let me know.
I would be very glad for any help =)
