    edit: as a new beginning painter, I'd love some crittin's on this and the paintings to follow, as I am not entirely convinced I know what the fuck it is I'm doing.

    This is pretty great. Has a delightful old-worldy feel! Eyes look a little flat but I figure you'd fix that up eventually. You're awesome.

    I use the nose to measure the eye location, the tear duct aligns with the end of the nostril thingy

    Tam, It's a good start, but I think you should try painting a face from reference.

    the outside of the nostril wing is aligning with the inside of the eyeball, but not the inside of the tearduct where it's aligning on the asian broad.

    This.
    So basically, Loom, all you've proven is that you can draw a line against the nostril that goes vertically up the face.

    There is no such thing as a formula or a blueprint which all human faces conform to. The best we have is idealized averages and guidelines. There is no law. Quibbling over a tearduct's width worth of variation is asinine. It's still a decent guideline. And that eye is still shifted a little too far away from the nose to be symmetrical with the other. Hell, I could even bite the other eye being moved further out to match. It's a pretty stylized drawing in the first place.

    yah basically what scosglen said, like, the eye can be shifted by a very very very small amount left or right. But thats where it will most likely be. Thats like drawing nipples on the top of the chest and trying to say theres no guidline to its placement

    Excellent start. This is what I like to see.

    A quick suggestion, I would round out his jaw/chin a bit more, and I would be careful to watch the "tilt" of his head. His head is more or less vertical, but he's got a weatherworn face, and it (and his smile) is not perfectly symmetrical, which can throw you off if you're not careful.

    In the future, I would suggest especially seeking out images with even stronger directional lighting, and non-profile or head on angles.

    Thanks for the pointers- I'll keep working on it as time permits. Would it be detrimental to do any line work while I'm learning painting at this basic stage?

    if you're really wanting to focus on your painting skill, I'd stick with patches of tone for now.

    Well except for the baldness, the head looks a lot like Rasputin. Hands are way huge though.

    I wanted to draw, but had no ideas. So I took one of my old pieces and made it better.

    And since no one knows what I'm talking about with the old piece, figure I may as well link to it.

    I was going to do some lineart, but then I accidentally colored over my lineart layer (which was cleverly labeled 'DO NOT DRAW ON ME'.) Subsequently, I decided lineart was for fools.

    I'm using a nice stock image for the pose and most of the lighting, btw.
