@Demon: Haha, thanks Demon. No, I didn't get to use a pallet, sadly and thankfully. Those things make your arm hurt after a while, and they're most useful for oil paints as oils don't dry out like acrylics do.
@Gedeon: Cheated? Not at all, you must have misread what I said. What I was saying is that my two complimentary colors were orange and blue, which is what I used througout the piece; orange and blue, using black and white for value (duh).
Paint is really nit-picky, and depending on the amount of a color you mix, or the brand, or the name of the shade of that particular color, you can get completely different colors.
That being said, I didn't have my own blue for a day, so I borrowed a friends tube in class, mixing it with my own orange. I got a cold blue-gray color.
Then I got my own tube of blue, still primary blue, like my friends was, but a different brand, therefore having different qualities. When I mixed it with my orange, I got a dull-green neutral color.
So no. I used orange and blue for the whole piece, just different brands.
Also thanks. The folds were hard to get seeing as though someone moved the freakin' set piece, ruining the lighting and perspective for the whole class. Most of those are made up wrinkles and folds from knowing how they should probably look.
I agree on the jaw. I also think the eye sockets are far too big, haha.

So your palette was turqoise, black, and white?
I think the assignment would've been more fun if it allowed you to use the non-mixed colors, as well. Achieving value by mixing [with] black and white is super boring and makes things look so dull. @_@
With that said-- I like it. =)
