Hard to tell at this early stage, but the form looks good enough to me. As long as you keep your light source(s) in mind it should be fine.

Good start...keep us posted. Actually once you knocked out some of the lighter areas on viewer right (above upper lip and the chin) , it could stand as is. Would be really powerful!:) Really nice work!!:)

This isn't finished?! Yes, the light looks right on the ear... and everywhere else.

Impressive painting,

Wes

Agree. Is this a crop...I hope not because the composition is part of the attraction, imo. Very nice. Curious to see where you take it from here.

This is the second session on this portrait.

Thanks for your reply on this, have problem with the
nose part, shadow and the highlighted nose looks artifical

Anyhow have to make a 3...10? session on this.

persim...
the ear color with light behind looks great...

the nose looks good too
honestly, digitals are not all that great for showing us
exactly where you are
colors are not true...etc...

it looks like you are on the right track
keep the faith
and keep going

the only thing I can suggest you keep in mind
is that this is a sweet young thing
and needs delicate grading
on the skin tones...
no harsh changes...
hair line on forhead too...

I like what I see so far...
dramatic and sweet...nice visual combination...

liking both the first and the second.
the first is such a strong framing but somewhat unfinished seeming - I get away with that quite a bit especially if the framing is strong.
the second quite the exected but much better finessed.

Think this is starting to look finished, was working another 2
sessions on it.

Anything to add, give me feedback if there is somethink wrong.
