    Hi Dave,

    Welcome. It's hard to judge by the photos, but it looks like you're doing alright. Where do you want to go? Do you have any specific questions?

    Sorry can't help you there. I paint in oils and have never been able to blend acrylics no matter how many times I've tried.

    Dave, I'm certianly no master when it comes to painting with acrylics but it would seem all your colors are in the right place. I like how you tie all your colors in and they have a nice dirty/worn look to them. One thing that does strike me, it seems you don't take your highlights and shadows far enough. All over the figures. Just a little more contrast, especially in the highlights. Again though, overall, I like your figures and it will not take much more for you to go to "that next level".

    Keep us posted,
    Jim Patrick

    Dave - Your figures look fine. I think you just need to keep on painitig and you iwll probably find that you improve naturally as you come to understand the medium you are using better.

    I've been painting figures for twenty years with acrylics and my figures don't anything like yours. You're doing fine.
