Digital portrait studies
Hi all Here are a few portrait studies from a digital portrait painting class I took over the winter with Steve Forster. I've mostly painted traditionally and this class really helped me get over a hump with digital painting.

Oil paint 101
Thanks to loads of help on these forums, I managed to work out what I needed to get going with my first attempts at oil painting - some really fun retail therapy later - some cool "Jacksons" supplies (London based art shop which I really recommend) I have managed my first painting... Whether its any good or not, it was certainly much more fun than the frustrating world of watercolour painting. The first lesson that you learn straight away is what they mean when they talk about the "push and pull" of Oil painting - which strikes me as very similar to trying to blend edges of shadow and half tone with graphite pencils. @Liandro - hope you like it...

Portrait in Oils - Feedback Welcome
Congrats to Proko and team on V2 of the web site. I am excited to see this community grow over time. In my younger years I used to dabble in oil painting and illustration. That was a long time ago. I'm picking it up again after a very long break, and trying my hand at portraits. Attached are some process images of a recent portrait. One of the images is a smallish sketch in oil to work on values. The final image is 18' x 14" on canvas board, painted over a few days. I'd love to get some fresh eyes on my work and get some feedback on my technique so that I can improve.

Requesting critique
Hi everyone I worked on this for on and off for far too long and I can't see clearly anymore. I'm sure a lot of things are off but I guess I don't have enough knowledge to fix them. This is part of a personal project. He is a member of the Holy Legion who protect the city and kingdom. The Holy Legion are loved by the people. Edmund is a 33 year old commander who just came back from a patrol (where a battle took place) and is welcomed by the people with love. He waves at them as he enters the city. Any tips and thoughts are welcome! Thank you

Illustration for critique
Hey sorry if this is the wrong category but i thought this is kind of a painting because i used edgework and no lines and so on, but correct me if im wrong. So this is my "personal" art so it does not have too much context. However I would like to get critique on literally everything so i get a kick in the butt again and i can move foward. So whatever you have in mind about values, the folds on her shirt, the overall colors, the composition, the portrait or the hair just say it :) Thanks in advance

I just did a master study. What do you guys think of the persons right eye, does it look wierd? I intended to decrease the contrast and detail in the shadows but it doesn't seem to work. Constructive criticism appreciated. Thanks

Digital painting as a practice to traditional?
I have an iPad and an Intuos M. Long time ago, I used to digital paint. I was always quite bad at painting traditional probably because I never really tried it but it is what excites me nowadays, regarding art. That said... do you think that digital painting helps out with gouache / oil painting for example? Sometimes I want to quickly "paint-sketch" something and gouache / oil painting isn't something that you can have with you at all times like an iPad or it isn't as easy / fast as opening an app on the computer, paint something and close it. Do you think digital painting could help me with traditional painting or are they such different mediums that the knowledge isn't that transferable? I was thinking on maybe having swatches for the primary colors or white and black in case i'm painting only values and then use some kind of 50% to mix them, try to mimic the real process...

Critique my acrylic painting
Hey guys just finishing up on this piece I posted earlier. Its a 50cm x 50cm acrylic piece i wanted to enter into a local comp. Was wondering if you guys have any ideas of things I can add. I need to finish it up by tomorrow. The lighting is pretty bad atm due to it being night time and wasn't able to capture some of the different textures (iridescent/gold, gloss medium etc)

Reference Pics
So i love old photos and i love to paint them- there are a million amazing photos out there that are great reference, better than i could ever take. Does anyone know or understand the level of copyright behind using them for painting. I feel its a big grey area and 'it depends' as stan would say haha. Feedback on this appreciated thankyou !
