    Black Spot portrait

    One thing I love doing is doing portraits of women all muscled up. Luckily enough there was a thread just for that on this forum

    Not sure if this is the correct place for this post, but it's going to take a fairly long time to finish this and I'd rather not clutter up the thread in lounge with constant update pics begging for critique.


    I decided to go for Black Spot



    The painting's going to be 73 x 56 cm. For the sketch, the height is correct, but it's missing some width.



    I apologize for the crappy phone pic, I'm currently shopping for a new camera. On that note, anyone happen to know if those under 100 digital cameras are enough for the purpose of taking good quality pictures of paintings?

    Bwahahahahaha! Now that should make members scared of me.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    Glad you like it, Black Spot.

    And yeah, I like big muscles and I can't deny it. However, I do like to maintain some symmetry and composition, so if anything strikes as off balance or anything else like that, let me know.

    I nearly fell off the couch.
    Remember kids, you shouldn't use Synthol on all of your muscles.

    ....wow....
