New painting

My 3rd figure painting in oil...
Didn't finish this one, but I may do another with the same model (I took a picture of him before I left class). I put this painting away for a few days and when I took it out, I noticed the things I should have changed while painting it. It was a good learning experience!
That's why it's a study, right?
I didn't get a chance to work on the hands or the chair much...
I will post my second painting, from the photo I took, to compare... it will be interesting to see what I do differently... ;)
Critique: The model had more exaggerated features and he wasn't as well groomed as I portrayed him... I will see what I come up with in the 2nd version. ;)

King of the Jungle!

This is a graphite drawing I was working on in my Animal Portrait class.
Well, I was working on it so long I started to hate the sight of it... and put it away for a while.
I've decided to start on it again...
I will post a picture of the final project when I'm done.
It was at the point where I was afraid to mess it up too... but I think I'm over it. ;)
