It's a style of sorts I guessI'm waiting one style to say, It's mine.
@FredSantos "Training less strokes and right values" IMHO is a great way to train. I find as a newbie I often focus too much on shape or detail at the expense of value, but I really think the foundation of convincing realism rests most solidly on value, on really conveying the sense of light accurately.Losing that at the expense of detail or shape leads to comic book, computer graphic, or just plain old flat and over worked cartoonish looking thing... (Mark Carder has a great mantra about "what's more subtle" which is related to this) so I think your training approach has the right priority for "real" realism.
@FredSantos I'm glad to see the practice. The immediate brush strokes are great. I see the values as being a off in the tee shirt. Partly be cause the color is too raw. Overall the tee is off by a full tone.I suggest you work bigger - a lot bigger on inexpensive oil paper. The texture is getting in the way on this small piece. Working larger will let you use big brushes standing back more and get more into finding color/value.
