Here is another master study from John Singer Sargent - 'Alice Shepard 1888'.
This took me around 3 hours or just under. Looking at masters really does amaze me in the skill they had and actually and how relevant and helpful all these master's portraits and environments are to concept art. Definitely going to do more of these.
And I've broke into my second page! w00t! hoorah.
Again, I wanted to get the values as right as I could to achieve a realistic believable skin tone, I used some brushes to represent cloth tear/detail and paint in the background. Still haven't approached the block form yet as I mentioned in the other post. Will an update soon to show this.
Any crits at all, please please go ahead, I'm trying to get a lot better, and I will do my best to return the favour
