Hey Everyone,
Heres my old man painting from Assignment 5.

This was extremely frustrating for me - but I pushed through and again Ciaee was there to pick me up when I was at my very very worse time of FRUSTRATION. So huge huge huge thanks yous for Ciaee your the best!

Even though the submission was a tad late - Sorry Bobby! Can you guys give me critiques please so I can improove as much as possible ?

I found the hair to be really really difficult for me, and ive only just come to terms with wrinkles and values, I need to practise so much more.

I used Vivi's entry and Ciaee's entry for inspiration of my entry - i also thought he would look cool with some bling bling, so i gave him some Dolce & Gabanna's sitting there on the end of his nose.
Respect old man,..... Respect.

Amazing assignment :D It is very obvious that a great amount of effort is put in to this piece. Very good!

Slow and Silly Very Old Frogapillar Jon-Troy Nickel!!!

This is looking stunning. A huge huge improvement from your first piece, and you ought to be proud of yourself! :D

Now that you're able to get the basics right, it's time to get nit-picky with critique. If I had to change anything, it'll be to add more definition to his clothing, and to group some of that beard at the bottom together. Right now the are too many locks of hair of the same size. The wrinkles on his face look fantastic. However, the wrinkles on his forehead could use a little varying up. Like the hair, these wrinkles are all looking a little too similar.

Keep it up, Troy! :3

'm not gonna be very helpful but I'll say it anyway. It looks great! There you see? Not helpful. XP

Alright, I'll try to do better than that. I think the next step after this would be just to apply some textures, particularly on his face. Like Viv did. Right now, it feels too .. smooth to be skin I think...? (I wanted to do this as well but alas ran out of time... so perhaps you thought of this too.)
