New portrait I did tonight
Another Master Study screwed up: I call it "what if rembrant weighed fifty pounds more?"
-A master study I did this morning with pastels. The painting is by of one of my favorate painters, Velasquez. Titled "Juan De Pareja" 1649
I realized afterwords that I screwed up the nose and eyes pretty bad but whatever-
A portrait I did last week using a white charchole pencil on black paper:

hmm..... this is so sad, doesn't anyone hav any criticisms? lol
I honestly can't find anything to crit here. Everything looks good. Even the eyes and nose on the one you think you screwed up. Chances are slim that anybody around here knows what your model looked like to compare them with your painting, so don't worry about it.
Are all of your portraits here from life? or are any made up?
the portrait in red is amazing. is that charcoal or pencil?

These are really good. The eyes are too far apart on that one, but the lighting is great. I love the white on black, gonna have to try that again myself, I've never had good results with it. In some ways the ink one is my favorite, nice effect.

Thanks Guys -
Instead of making a new post, I just updated this one. Hope thats ok -
woaa! what medium did you use?Originally Posted by zandernice
I love the diffused look! So effective here man. so effective
i really like the red image... i am going to go pick up one of those pencils tomorro....
strong skills the only image that rubs me the wrong way is the second one and you already caught your mistakes. there is nice rendering of all your forms and it is kept loose but with clear understanding of light and dark. i would be curious to see what a full value drawing in the red would look like. at most i would look into adding in a little more crisper lines into your work and just pushing tha value scale some more but i really like these pieces and want to see more.

i like the first one the most.. the looseness and colors are really nice... thanks for posting these
Mainloop- man i must be dyslexic.. cuz i thought you asked how many people are on lsd
I absolutely love the first portrait in oil (?), you really went for the red nose, and it definitely works there! nice job!
What kind of paper did you use for that red pastel portrait? And how did you get those bright highlights? white charcoal? (just asking because my teacher refuse to let us use white charcoal/chalk in your drawings!) Wonderful modeling of the form, yet the softness. I love it

I saw the flowers die
grand beauty turn to dust
under wings of cold white death
just quickly what came to my mind when I saw the oil still life:
the colors look really "separated". it shows especially well on the tomatoes (oranges?): if light falls on the orange surface, it takes up that color, and reflects it on the surrounding area, which would be the table. so there should be hints of orange on the black surface of the table, it will give unity to the painting and thus let the fruit appear to actually be "in" the scene, instead of looking rather "glued onto the painting".
(I don't mean this in a harsh way!! couldn't find better words.. )
the red portrait is really nice, for some folks the highlight on the nose might be too much, but I like it like that when I look at it a bit longer, it seems like the highlight of the eye on the left is not 100% correct. but thats a tiny details, and maybe it's just me..
you are stuying under James Wu arenn't you. haha! I did all these assignments too. Great work on them so far. Watch your ears, the proportions and the anatomy. James doesn't like to do ears for some odd reason but don't let that stop you, ears ARE important. keep up the good work!
hey these look cool, you draw well. however one thing i notice is that the figures don't feel right in terms of textures. they have a "wet rubber" feel to them. skin should feel like skin, this could be a paint texture issue, it could mean adding alittle details in spots, it could be a tonal issue, it could even be a color issue.
i was copying a painting once and one of my friends noticed i was just copying how the painting looked and using the same techniques i used for everything else. i wasn't learning as much as i should have. he suggested that i imagine how the original painter to achieve those effects. and it worked! i learned so much that way.
The first portrait and the pink portrait are AWESOME!!!!
