I feel like I'm making progress. But I still keep running into brick walls.
here's about 45 min of work on an old guy. The picture is based on a picture I saw on digg today... I'll find it and post it eventually.
So I'm working on values and doing ok with the face. Much better than past attempts (I guess that's the way it works right? better every time?) . I'm actually pretty happy with how its going except I can't get the shirt or hat to look like fabric! Any advice would be much much appreciated!
