My goal was to create a portrait per day for five days. I wanted to try out some of the techniques I've learned from watching Neville Page and Ben Mauro work their magic at a Creature Design Workshop at FZD last year. More importantly, it was to become more familiar with color/ texture. I've been avoiding color like the plague for a while now. Mostly because my foundation in it is not strong.

It's also good to know that I can create a finished looking piece in a day. The last two took a bit longer but I'm really digging the workflow. You can check out the process here:

Hope you enjoy
