    I WOULD LOVE... to know where a great thread is of paintings of women's portraits...

    I've looked on CA for some time.. I can't find anything. Either a tutorial or a great thread would be fantastic

    I just got out my wacom tablet again and I'm trying to draw female faces (head on, no weird poses).

    Mostly I'm looking for color theory and high contrast colorful images... speed paintings are perfect (they don't need to be 'finished').. I learn better from those anyway because you see the process of the work.

    I seem to remember there was a "Girls,girls,girls!" thread like a year ago with thousands of replies full of awesome examples but I can't find it.

    Something similar to this... but a full-on portrait with more contrast and a wider color-range spectrum (i find this very helpful in learning about what colors work so that it doesn't get muddy or bland)

    You might check out William Whitaker sketchbook, tough those aren't very brightly colored.
