Okay, now I've gotten a chance to really look at your images.

Firstly, on the first set, great work so far! I quite like the first piece in particular ~ the line and tone sensitivity is something you should strive for in all of your pieces.

The problem you are having is in creating heads that are far too small for the figures. I would work on a few master copies, as then you will have some definite Reference against which to compare your work.

I really recommend this book:

"Anatomy Lessons From The Great Masters", by Robert Beverly Hale and Terence Coyle - Watson Guptill, publisher

There are tons of great Master Drawings in that book ~ check out Erich / El Chief's Anatomy Thread, he is doing some terrific copies from it.

Looking forward to seeing more work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Ok! Great thanks a lot! I will definitly work on making the heads bigger! I def knew the head was small on 3rd piece but I though it just made him look buff.

Hehe, definitely buff, but far too much. It's a common mistake, I tease Mike (default.rol) about it all the time!

Cheers,

rblitz7,

Oh, I definitely like that last one a lot! The atmospheric painting is of course really appealing to me...I would suggest finding a good source of black and white imagery, and perhaps practicing from that. Black and white photos are great of course for helping you / training your eye to see values.

Try finishing the face on this one if you can, beyond just the block~in.

Nice work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Very cool! I would say to go in and do a bit more straight painting / touch~up work. Try not to rely completely on effects, though this is a really good one. Really emphasize lights and darks, especially where they meet in crisp or soft edges.

Great progress!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Wow! Super nice! The only thing I would say would be to try to get the features of the face to 'wrap around' the mass of the head ~ think of the head as a cylinder that is facing down and turned slightly away from the viewer (us) ~ the features of the face, eg, the brow, eyes, nose, lips, chin, ears, etc., will wrap around / follow that cylinder in perspective.

Great work! It's very nice to see your progress!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thanks! I see what you mean, the nose and chin in particular look way too flat.
