Paint Practice - Alfonso XIII by lkrecic Paint Practice - Alfonso XIII by lkrecic
Based on the statue by José Navas-Parejo.
This painting really impressed me.
Even tho it's just a practice i can't help but love the way you rendered it.

Awesome knowledge of values, the shapes are well defined and you can almost feel the roughness of the stone thanks to the light noise.
All the proportions look good to me, maybe the original head is a little longer vertically, but not much of an issue.

The hair are astonishing, the details are very well done.

The only little thing I can complain about it's that some edges are way too strong that they should be: e.g the inside of the ear, the countour of the eyelids (I know there should be a stronger shade, but still, it's a little too dark in value)

Really amazing practice overall.
What do you think?

First of all, great work! :) The lighting and values look accurate. Great work with the details too. The general proportions look correct.

In the reference, the face and the neck look a bit thinner. Also, the muscles of the neck are slightly visible.

I think the ear needs a bit more work. The shading looks too harsh.

In my opinion, the shading of the hair could also use more work. It looks more flat than the rest of the face.

Also, if you wanted to push it further, working on the stone's texture could give it more realism.

Overall, you did a very nice work! Well done! :D

Very nice! Your reflective shadows in particular are great. I love the details of the face, too. Even if it's just a practice piece, it's nice to see something so well drawn. Super refreshing :]

This is really good! At a first glance of the thumbnail I honestly thought you might have sculpted it XD

I like how you did the lighting. It really helps give it that..."stony" feeling? ^^;

Either way, it really looks like a sculpture and the painting stye works wonderfully.

As always, a fine job! :meow:
