    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?

    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....
