Qikalain - thanks, yeah I try to do that most of the time. Its important to do when trying to learn I think. Otherwise it can get frustrating and discouraging, from my experience.
ajtabril - thanks heres an update for ya!
phizpietl - I wish I could do them all fucking day long! I did a mini one today of Lautrec's portrait of Van Gogh
Jacky-Boy - thanks alot man! Now if I could only do Frazetta from imagination! Yeah I have the same thoughts on that piece I did. The truth I could have practiced drawing in that pose first and then did it, But I wanted to see how Id do from my imagination, and I wanted to show how bad I am too haha. IL definitely be posting my best recent Life drawings soon
Watercolor of back garden again
Ink doodles, boredom struck!
I love this self portrait by Rembrandt, I think its so funny So I decided to give it a go while I had the ink out
For the DSG
Master study, Henri de Toulouse Lautrec's portrait of Van Gogh.
The reason I did this was because I was reading through huevaluechroma/ and he gave this image as an example for using color to describe space... or something.
Id been thinking about it so I had to experiment.
After the Lautrec study I got an Idea for a method. Turned out to be pretty fun, I sculpted out a base to work on using only hue, then did one dark pass using a multiply layer, and one pass using an overlay layer.
I was planning on doing figure studies all day, instead of painting. But I only got 4 fucking pages done I didnt want to drink coffee today and my brain made me pay...
Big thighs, tiny ankles, oh yesh
