I am originally from Southern California, but now live in the Ann Arbor area of Southeastern Michigan. My main joy in art is in traditional oil painting, but I do dabble in sketching and digital medium.

The proportions on the face are spot on. Immediately I am able to look at this drawing and recognize who it is. It was obvious to me that you had put in a lot of work into the eyes and it shows; those might be arguably the most important feature of any portrait since that is what we tend to focus on first.

The contrast between your light and shadow shapes were bit lost in portrait; I see defined darkest darks but not the brightest brights. This tended to take away from the contour of the figure and flatten her out just a bit.

All in all, I think you did a fantastic job and would like to see what you do next
Hello everyone,

     I've been a member for a few years now but I'm am now just starting to post projects. I'm in the Detroit area of Michigan and am new to art. I drew a little as a kid but dropped it when I started focusing on my career outside of art. After 15+ years, my career fell out from underneath me. About early 2014 I took a beginning drawing class at my local community college and found my passion for art again. While in that class, I met another professor who would set me on my path for painting. In Mid 2014 I started oil painting and found what truly felt right. In late 2014 I learned how to use photoshop and am finishing up my AA degree in Computer Graphics Technology with a specialization in Digital Art. My end goal is to be a freelancer doing conceptual art and some physical media on the side. I'm still pretty green at this but I'm giving it my all
