    1. Begin the master study from the image above. Studies are to be in full colour. Be faithful to the master study. Do not use the colour picker. Do not trace. This is an exercise that over time will pump up your skills very quickly.
    2. Make your study and the master work the same size. This makes it easier for you and others to critique. Do not make it hard for yourself
    3. Upload your finished study directly in a reply to today's thread. Every day or weekend will have it's own thread with the image of the day.
    4. Time limit - 1 Hour minimum at least. This is the minimum to get the full benefit, but you're welcome to put a lot more time into it. The longer you can spend on it, the better you will get.
    5. Try to see how the artist worked and bring this into your study. Match the colour and the shapes in broad strokes, leave details out unless you have the time later. Go from the largest shapes of colour first. Fingernails and eyelashes should be ignored to the end.
    6. Work on a small format, this stops you making those details and enables you to capture the essence. You can make it bigger later.

    Pleasepost your image side by side with the original, either next to eachother or on top of each other. This makes it easier for people to seeand critique.

    You maynot wish to do a study everyday, but work on one over several days.This can make you push yourself harder.

    Critiquefrom yourself and others is always welcomed here, as we are here toimprove. Comment on what you think you've learnt from doing thestudy, where it failed, worked and what you will take forward to thenext one.

    Please tryto research the artist, their paintings & techniques as learningart history is equally important.

    I've worked on it more than a day and spent much time on details. It's not perfect but I've learned quite a bit, I think. Critiques are welcomed!

    I had to do this one very quickly. I used this study to test out video recording in my laptop, and I kept getting paranoid that my computer would explode, lol.

    You guys have done some impressive work! I thought I would give it a shot as well. This is my first study with my new wacom intuos pro.
    I spent about two hours on this one, during the last i allowed myself to zoom in and work on some details. :)

    Comments and critique are very welcome :)
