Sophdraws19 [QUOTE=dickhutchings;181802]Well done. Looks like a bit of work. Any idea how many hours you have in this?

Umm not too sure about that, I've been working on it for about 2 months on and off putting in around an hour a day so I'd say around 40-50 hours total. Though I tend to procrastinate a lot so most of it was done over last weekend

Sophdraws19 Thanks everyone! I finally got it finished^^ Had to rush but managed to submit it like 30 mins before the deadline xD. Definitely going to choose an easier subject for next years comp. Btw does anyone know any other art competitions open to the UK for all ages? This is my first one and I want to enter more but can't seem to find any :S.

Sophdraws19 Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I blended it out a bit more and it looks way better now. Thanks for the method chikevin! Works much better than trying to copy it out detail for detail (think I was trying too hard to make it hyper realistic >.>). And no problem love your wedding portrait! The competition deadline is in 3 days so I'm pulling an all nighter today to try and finish it ^^. This is what I've worked up to ~

Susan Mulno For future reference @ChiKevin, if you go to the forum, open a thread, say for instance, "Oil Painting" at the top left of the list is a small box that says "New Thread" click on that and you get a message window. This is the important part, if you don't put a title for your thread it won't load. Hope that helps.

Mel_Robertson fantastic work kevin especially love the shading and skin tones on the lady who won the competition, thanks for sharing

ChiKevin One more bit now that I did post this on your response board. Notice how even in my own painting I take the same advice I gave you. If you look at the "making of" pictures you will notice I first shade the areas that create large shapes, like in the man's shirt, before I add the details, in this case the stripes. I hope this helps you out in the future.
