Hi!Good study here! Your color will be better if you dont use black to mark the shades. Try to use war or cold value of color for this. Use saturate color for attraction of attention of the spectator to important details.
good effort on that pirates study! fair play to you bet its pretty challenging!
To hell with circumstances; I create opportunities.
Nice man, I've been waiting for you to spend a long time on some figurative stuff . Fully render out that baby and we'll see how far you can take it!
I love your stuffs. I love your improvement. That's great.
Hey man. You've got potential, but there's one thing you should remember about human skin. It's never a one-two tone. Skin has very reflective ability (and black skin especially). Human face has a ton of hues. So I recommend you to use more saturated and variative colors. Keep practicing mate.
Better with the skintones! Also; a lot of the time the color is more saturated along the midtones of the skin. Just a thing to note for your observations.
