Not sure if Im gonna continue working on that fanart.
Im still working on my hand problem and I think its going places now.
The last one is a quick face from imagination - Colors are ok but the jaw is kinda wonky
Great progress, love the experimentation. Your studies of hands look great as well, now just follow through in your paintings so we can see what you've learned
Also, try experimenting with painting straight to color. It looks like you use the overlay/color dodge/whatever tools to get the crazy colors you do, and while that's cool, it won't help your understanding of how color works.
Thanks for the link!
What I'm really looking for though is references with a wide range of ages,races and body types. Most of the stuff on the reference sites I know is mostly young-ish caucasians with a slim or "normal" body.
I figured I needed to do some shading again ^^
I also tried out doing a movie still from LotR
