    Some rough pencils from reference. Figured I should probably not neglect the traditional side too much, so from now on I'll try and balance both. Painted straight on top of the drawing without cleaning it up which might be considered bad practice but figured it wouldn't matter as it's covered over anyhow. Will go back and finish the study at some point, wanna do more black blob characters! Oh yeah the clavicle is off center in the very first drawing, forgot to fix it.

    Great traditionals! I like how you do the shading. It looks very clean.

    Thanks guys, appreciate you taking the time.

    Got the paints out and had a mess about. 2.5 hours, oil on acrylic. Might do more when there is some natural light. Unfortunately the camera won't pick up some of the colours in this orange artificial light.

    Reference from mjranum on DA. He has some great ref pics.

    Went to do more today but 5 mins in had to stop and do something else. Took a pic in daylight though to see the colour comparison. Unfortunately the camera still struggles to pick up the colour in the dark areas, like the shadow under her nose is actually a deep iron red surrounded by greens and blues, as are areas in the eyes. It's a shame because it creates a weird optical effect when looking at it in the flesh, like it's glowing or something... Gonna leave most of it as abstract marks I think, also quite tempted to put stag horns in and a lunar eclipse. I really don't know why I feel the urge to put horns on everything hehe..

    Her features are a little squint, might just leave them like that.

    I'm not sure which I admire most - your digital or your traditional skills.

    What are you up to in Level up now?

    Hey Bri despite the camera problems it still looks good. I love the strong drama of the expression. I have problems photographing my work as well and I am trying to save up for some proper lights on stands. I also recently asked Rob Rey here on the forums for tips as his paintings are great and he photographs them so well. In case you don't know of his sketchbook here is a link http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...02#post3809102. Hope it helps and inspires more great works.

    Sweet bri! Man, how can you blend the color paint on the face so well? I never worked out with traditional that well!
    This might be late but I really like the big guy concept of your digital (comment #136). The anatomy is well done
    Can be seen carrying sketchbook around nearby bus station.

    Agerkvist- Cheers buddy. Been having a break from studies but ready to dive back into the level up.

    fantasyartist- Thanks for the kind words

    Marian Rowling- Awesome, thanks for the link Marian, will have a good look tomorrow. Ye proper lights on stands would be sweet!

    springofsea- Hey Springy You should try oil paint for blending, it is one of the better mediums for soft transitions. As for the big guy, might go back and flesh him out at some point.

    Haven't really done much over the last couple of weeks, kinda lost my art mojo. Spent all day yesterday looking at digital artists. So today was more productive, started this motorcylce gurl after looking at the art of Evan Lee and feeling all inspired. The bike is loosely based on the BMW HP4, a truly beautiful machine. Would love to ride one, who knows, maybe one day.

    There's also some rough sketches a couple of warm up heads and a Giovanni Boldini colour study. Really love his paintings, quite similar to Sargent.

    Hey, you're back! Good to see ya. I like the machinegun-bear-man, and I'm interested to see where the red one goes. Good start on the bike too. Something feels a touch off about the perspective though, can't quite figure out what... Maybe her leg is too far forward?
