    Thanks very much!


    Here's a quick little freehand portrait I did of my DnD character. I think I've made decent improvement over my previous freehand portraits. Just gotta keep on working.

    Finally finished that anatomy study I started a while back, following along with the video series The Structure of Man.

    I did the whole thing reasonably high-res with each muscle on its own layer, so I'm going to back and do it one more time and pay really, really close attention to proportions so it can be used for a convenient anatomy reference.

    And here's another portrait; done half for practice, half for fun.

    It's referenced from Beyoncé's music video for the song Video Phone. I always thought the makeup in this shot was really cool, so it was lots of fun to paint.

    Still have some issues with facial construction, but I'll get there.

    Tralala, more portrait practice.

    This one's of Baroness Rodmilla de Ghent, portrayed by Anjelica Huston in the movie Ever After.

    I think the skintones turned out pretty well, I've just gotta get the hang of perspective on the facial features.

    I like the way you took a few standard exercises and stock image, and gave them your own personal twist!
    I particularly liked the wall.e and the bull digi exercise that you transformed into a traditional study,very nice result too.

    I would suggest you do more flow-proportion studies, quick 30 sec or 5min studies, to really feel those masses.

    Looking forward to your next updates.

    And yeah, BlackDelphin, some speedier studies would definitely help. I've been doing some, but should probably be more frequent with them.


    Here's my first assignment from the KC workshop; the goal was to create a readable piece with only value and shape, no line whatsoever. Quite a fun challenge, and I think it turned out pretty well. :3

    Way too much smudging and smoothing everywhere - especially on human skin. You should experiment with flat shading too. When it's used wisely it can be much more effective than smooth transitions. Also don't forget to play around with hue and saturation when painting skin. The border of shade and light is generally more saturated - and you can even use some light green or blue on skin to spice it up and make it look more interesting.
