I've posted this in a couple of places, bizarrely have had no replies, which tells me it's either bad or dull So I thought I would try here...
This is a sketch towards my next painting. It is a purely technical study drawn from reference, I'm looking to try and do some digital figure drawing and painting and refine my skills generally.
This is hand drawn straight into Photoshop with a Wacom 6x8, I created a rough outline first and then rendered it on a layer on top in a "pencil" style. I wanted to see how well I could emulate traditional pencils in photoshop, I think it looks quite convincing although a close up would give it away.
I see a problem with his left shoulder, and I've also made the whole of the shoulders wider than they should be, but if there are any other problems feel free to point them out
Any comments or crits would be great before I launch into the painting itself
PS: original ref can be found here .
And for the curious, my intial rough is here and a detail view of his face is here .
