Here's a digital self portrait done in Photoshop. I still like to keep my process pretty similar to a traditional approach.

Took a different approach to this self-portrait and I'm not sure if I enjoyed the process as much. But, I did enjoy painting the glasses and the dramatic lighting. Acrylic on canvas.

Here is another self-portrait that I left untitled. I really wanted to capture the slight upward angle from the distortion of the camera lens. This was done with acrylics on paper.

I created this self-portrait entitled "Face mask" in an attempt to remind myself to take some time out of my day to relax and reflect, despite some current events of the world. This was done with acrylics on canvas.

Wonderful composition1 I love the colors also. But I agree with @Yiming Wu the edges of the cloud could be softened in places or lost in in others to increase that depth. Also I think you can push the hues to a bit more higher chroma in the cloud. Next time try creating the grays of the cloud with a combination of complimentary colors rather than straight gray. Overall it's a wonderful painting! I would love to see a series of these.

Thank you for feedback christopher! I think I struggled the most in the inside of the cloud to create the effect of soft and hard edges and color was never my strong suit so I'm def working on that 😅 I do plan on making a small series of cloud paintings.

Looking interesting! Is it intentional that you made the cloud look like "cut and pasted"? There's some very nice paper-cut like effect on the lit edges. I think if to improve this, you can also put some more sharp edges inside the cloud so it has more "layers" of the fluffy shape.

Thanks for the feedback Yiming! Yes I left that light side edge very sharp to stick out more and softened the edge on the bottom right side to give it somewhat of a balance.

My painting of a large cloud I saw on my way home from work one day with some close ups. Critiques are always welcomed.

Hi Gino, wonderful value study. Is she one of the Grafit Studio models? If so, than you captured her well. To work with one brush is a good way to start. Try now different brush sizes and blend the values together. That would my recommendation to you. Good work.... keep going.

Critiques welcomed. Sometimes painting digitally can be overwhelming with all the different tools and features digital programs have to offer, so I decided to keep it simple and just use the basic round brush in black and white to make this portrait. Twas fun. Thanks, and Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. Gino

Some additional pages from the same sketchbook. You'll see a color gamut exercise I tried from James Gurney with my typical palette. It's pretty much a Zorn palette/modified Zorn palette.
