I'm taking my first painting class right now (acrylics) and it has inspired me to use photoshop in a more painterly way. I want to study more anatomy and face shapes, color, ect so I thought to combine these and do some painting style studies from photos. These are not really taken to a "finished" point, but I wanted to work on them until I felt like the color & value relationships were similar to the ref and the forms feeling fairly solid.
