Love that colour study in #66, it's really breathtaking! Great job : ) The girl in black and white in #62 is stunning as well, the contrast is really great!

Great work with the hands too - keep pushing it : ) and your material studies and portrait stuff is coming along great!

Your gestures look a little lifeless though... did you have any kind of rhythm / action lines on another layer that's been hidden? They look nicely proportioned just don't seem to have much energy. I'm no expert but that's what I see. Have you ever watched Glenn Vilppu draw gesture? It's really eye opening if you haven't - there's a short clip here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbSuMvdluvQ and few other things if you search him on youtube.
He has a full 1 hour or so class on it on DVD, but it's not on youtube it seems - I borrowed it from somewhere, it's a really great lesson if you can get hold of it.

Tnx for the nice comments, i try to do various style's every time i start a new portrait study so i can see with what i can be comfortable with and in the same time i study about values as well..

About the gestures, yes i had another layer with all the rhythm and construction lines but i hid it at the end, tought it would look really messy with them, next time i'll add them up..

Tnx for the recommendation but unfortunately i won't be able to have it so i'll go with something else..

I don't think it's because the construction lines are hidden that they look like that - I mean they are nice clean, well proportioned figures, just something is missing. Maybe try a few different gesture styles and see how you find the results!

You're producing such beautiful work these days Shin, really awesome stuff! Especially the girl in #75. The wooden mannequin almost looks like an (artistically) out of focus photo!

Don't think I can help you with the skin too much... but as an idea maybe try and do a few of your material studies on a few different photo's of skin? See if you can discover any patterns or similarities. The under eye skin especially tends to be different from the rest of the skin on the face.

Just a thought anyway, keep it up brother!
