These are really nice, very vivid colors and it seems much accuracy in being quite life-like! You've captured the smiles very well, which can be very hard!

Re: Latest 3 portraits

Good work ! I probably like the step father portrait best ... I've rarely seen this kind of dark reddish skin tone (sorry, not sure how else to describe), so well done. What I also like is that you achieved to have the portraits look serious even though the models smile ... quite often with smiling models the results look somewhat awkward ... here it is done very well.

Re: Latest 3 portraits

Thanks for the kind words. The red tone came from my reference photo and I kind of liked the richness of it. It was a good contrast to the light shirt and black hat.

Wow, these are all excellent, but I really like the lighting you got in step-dad! That's Pastel? Crazy man!

Re: Latest 3 portraits

Thanks Dana! I didn't get very serious on the pastel and even did quiet a bit without my glasses. I know I tend to overwork the oils but would love to get better at them. I can zone out for hours trying for color and value to be just right. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: Latest 3 portraits

Anyone have an idea of where the focus should be on the last portrait of my daughter? I have been working on it some more and thought I would try to soften some edges and raise the color some. Right now I feel like I may have raised color too much. Will post again after I have made a few more changes. Thought about focus being on her right eye.

Re: Latest 3 portraits

The first one is my favorite, wonderful bright eyes! I really like your flesh tones specially in the pastel portrait.
