Sorry my batteries ran out as i was posting this. i didnt even realize that i went up.
The first face is a study from a Rubens painting (i bought a book with his paintings a couple of days ago). Man if you feel like a good dosing of humble i really recommend trying to do a master study, man its so much harder than i expected. please dont try and find the reference because i really didnt capture the essence of it. Rubens' version looks like a much younger girl and her eyes stare straight into yours from the page. its pretty amazing.

haha the second one is a random follow up to the last post. i messed with it for a little longer trying to put something worth looking at in it. it really is a mess- too much destraction in the foreground and a conterproductive composition (dont worry im not looking for compliments, this is more like a learning journal for me) I sorta like the idea that came through though. maybe it could be something i can follow up at a later stage...

Hey man,
I love the new brush work and "painterly" look you have going. I'd suggest looking into the textural blending a bit more and don't be afraid to use other colours in the skin tone (greens etc).
The yellow is already in there - liking it.
