Latest Painting! Last time I got some wonderful feedback from my last painting I finished. I figure I will try it again. The title “Faded” was created when I was developing the composition for this painting. Originally the figure and the background was going to be faded together with lots of subtle tone. That didn’t happen so the title really doesn’t match. Regardless I’m going to keep the title as is because I really don’t like coming up with a title after the face. It seems forced. I want the motive for the painting to start at the beginning and be there before the painting is even started. Everything should grow from the motive. The real motive behind this painting is all about the texture and skin. I want to breath as much life into it as possible. For some reason I’m always thinking of Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam on the Sistine Chapel when I look at this painting. Strange that he depicted the scene with two men when the creation of life is the domain of women… https://chrisbeaven.com/paintings/faded/

That looks really nice, I love the realistic colors of the hand and I think the brushwork is very interesting.

Nice work overall :) Perhaps the core shadow, the cast shadow and the reflected light could be a little darker though.

I forgot to add: The external oblique ones are from the External obliques video lesson by Stan and the others from the anatomy video: Models in motion - Anthony.

I agree with the comment from @Scott Kersey, and to me, it looks a lot like something drawn for animation.

The lighting itself looks pretty good in these :) My feedback would be to try and make the various regions (like the core shadow) more consistent, especially if you're going for a more smooth finish. For example, in the 2nd drawing, the core shadow moves in a wave pattern, while, in the reference it is a smooth curve. Also, in the first drawing, the core shadow fades off more abruptly than in the reference. It's perfectly alright to go away from the reference and add your own expression, it in my opinion. But, as you probably know, by changing the shape of the shadows, you can also change the form they communicate :) Hope this helps :)

This looks awesome, and I think there's a pretty interesting contrast happening between the refined face and the rougher brushwork in the hair.

My beans after two weeks of practice. At the beginning everything seemed easy, but after watching all the lessons, I feel like I can’t do them properly - can’t understand the movement of a posture and convey it with a bean, esp twists. And my center lines are often off. I will set the exercise aside for a while, as I can’t draw beans anymore lol

I think these look great, and I agree with @Rebecca Shay that critiquing them would be easier with the references :)

These look awesome and I love how flowing and dynamic they feel. I don't have any critique for them, but you could perhaps try to simplifying them a bit, using less detail around the contour of the figure and instead trying push for longer strokes that describe the overall movement of the pose (not saying these drawings don't) and then see what happens. Perhaps you could also consider working bigger? There's nothing wrong with drawing in a smaller format, but going bigger gives you more room for using your arm and shoulder which is pretty nice for drawing gestures :) Keep up the good work!

Hi. This is my first assignment. Made with FB polychromos indian Red. Much better than graphite pencils (at least for me).

Nice! I like the way you've separated the skin tones into facets. Looks pretty interesting :)

Pushed the contrasts more and I think i got a better understanding of structures underneath!
