    Were they are done by stencils? They are all very nice paintings and well done. I like your self-portrait and the last one.

    Nice work!

    She looks like a conglomerate of women I know.

    Take the eyes from one, the mouth from another and the slip from anoth. . . wait. . . I mean, she looks like she could have been in a Victoria's Secrets catalog.

    Nice job.

    Nice stuff. I would take care about how slavish you are to the edges that come from stencils. Looks a little cut out. I haven't really used them, so I don't know if this applies, but you may want to play around with softening (blurring?) the focus of the edges (if it represents an exact copy of the BW image), or go back and manipulate it a little.

    But it definitely has a look.

    As to doing hair, there are as many ways of doing hair as there are doing water. Two successful ways are 1) think in terms of masses and planes with shadows and highlights and all that, where you would get progressively more refined until the hair appears (in humans, not even fur as much), 2) put in every hair and keep building it. But even at that one would use colors and values of how the light turns the form.

    Try stuff. And look at how some of your favorite artists have done it.

    Nice work. I'm only going based on what you've posted, but you feel like a social artist -- lots of different people with their own specific look and personality and so on. Like the casual attractive and youthful people one might accumulate in their lives. Says a lot about the artist too -- your age, your circle, the fashions and styles of your 'now', etc. Has something of a documentary feel.

    I think that's a great way to go.

    Robert Bateman is a Canadian wildlife artist -- very well known.

    You can do a search through the images on Google or somewhere.

    He paints tight, or at least gives that impression from a reduced shot.

    I'll tell you, if you had a stiff bristle brush that painted streaky strokes you could do with a big brush what you want and use that as your ground to develop on top of.

    The other thing is that you could find a program that has programable brushes that paint lots of repetitions by just holding down the mouse button or who knows what can be done in some programs now with making marks. Then single stroke thin marks are not so time consuming.

    Or you could do all that in the real world and scan it in and use it as a grain like Jacktar uses his grass textures. And just size it an overlay the body and do something like a rubbing.
