Oh boii! The Mai portrait came out incredible! I like the slightly desaturated colors in contrast to the icey blue eyes.

My only crit with the second portrait is that the helmet and the shape of the head isn't that well structured out. I'm pretty sure the helmet would extend more on the left site to cover the back part of the skull. At the moment his head feels very flat Other than that... Really nice work on the textures. I might have benefited from a bit more contrast in values or colors.

Also really nice sketch book. I enjoy all the variety you're delivering here! Nice work on the animation and all the anatomy stuff!

@ Zipfelzeus : Thanks for the C&C. thanks for the tips will make sure to keep them in mind for my next helmeted character ^_^

gone from having like one commission a year to like 7 in a month =.= feels so damn intense. Since im doing these a feel like im playing everything safe rather than experimenting. So what im planning on doing is one simple portrait a day for 100 days. Im calling it Face the Fact cause: 1. no challenge is complete without a cheesy title, and 2. Im bad at making up good titles ^-^

here is 1/100 only took like 10 mins so some might be short some might be long

Daaayum the new painting looks great. I think you should focus on drawing/structure though it seems like it's falling behind compared to your rendering.

@ kvSketch : glad you like it but ye I know I still need to come back to structure and that is something I do plan on coming back to but these super quick portraits are more or less to keep me entertained ^_^

A little bit late but I did a small paint over of your commission.

Fixed up the anatomy on the arm a bit and aligned the eyes. I also added some hard edges here and there, atm the piece looks a little too dulled out with no real focal point. It doesn't have to be anything dramatic, just enough to bring interest to different areas of the piece.

Hey there! I see you're working on faces/heads/portraits for your self-imposed challenge and can't help but notice that your drawings lack in structure and anatomy. I know you like to stylise, but you're building your exaggerations on a wonky foundation and it looks to me like you keep making the same mistakes. I propose this as an ancillary project to your challenge: study the head in depth. Loomis and Hampton are a great start. Bryan Lee's anatomy notes are quite useful, too, so here you go:

Nice sb here! Would agree with ash regarding studies. It's nice to do personal work but at the early stage it becomes more important to balance studies as well. Ie for the Junpei painting his hair and face are very flat, especially his hair. It can use some darker occlusions or overlapping.

@ash+bones - thanks alot for these notes ^_^ what I think I will do is follow these notes and apply them to the faces but still try to get a finished sketch done. But will defiantly practice alot more once I have got other art out the way :) Did use similar method to get these next two faces and hot damn does it help but will defiantly practise these along side the challenge.

@crankshaft : thanks man ye definitely got to work on my faces but only doing these quick faces for fun, since I spend most of my time trying to do commissions and project work =.=. I will try apply some of the stuff that ash showed me and since school is starting back up I shouldn't have to worry to much about money so I shall get more studying in ^-^


missed yesterday but did it today using the notes ash showed me ;3
