Kungfoowiz: Thank you, always have a blast doing those studies. I agree with you regarding the Batman piece as well, thanks for your honesty.
kevin: Glad I'm making progress, will keep the pace going!
Continued with more studies of faces/heads. I did two photo studies, one featuring a skull while the other was based on a movie still from 'LA Confidential'. Learning a lot with these studies, especially in regards to form and how the human skull works.
kayness: Thanks, had a blast with that color palette!
Some updates.... Did a ton more head studies... I noticed that I learn a lot more by doing studies from imagination immediately after studying from the masters, so I'll definitely be going that route. Played around with construction this time as well, which I have to admit was a lot of fun for me.... Hopefully I'll be able to tackle some more caricature work with more confidence in the future, but these studies are definitely helping in that regard.
WOW amazing studies from LOOMIS right ?! Love it should practice him too.
I saw the dp with the very blond lady, blue eyes, RED lip stick in a empty
very colorfull room. I didn't see any of the lights at her, reflecting on her
coat/ face. Nice painting thou, wish I could do that too.
BlackSpot: Thanks! You're right about the hips, good catch! I'll be more conscious of this in the future.
Iven: Yessir! Loomis is a huge inspiration for me as an artist, so I study his technique religiously. His approach to drawing heads in unparalleled. As for the painting you mentioned, it's a speedpaint so I try a lot of new things, sometimes not so successfully, haha
Some updates! Had a chance to do some caricature work and had a blast. These paintings are meant to be shown at a much smaller scale, so I didn't overwork them, but instead opted for a clean approach without superfluous detailing.
