This began as a bit of doodle and grew and grew. I knew i wanted to do something with a lighter palate and this was as good a subject as any.
I had all the basic stuff down reasonably quickly but the rendering and detailing well that took way longer. Things definitely got more static as I rendered it further. It is still a shock how long it is taking me to get to a point where a piece looks finished. I think if I focus more and have a clearer idea of what I need to get too it would go faster. On the other hand I am trying to learn as i go so lots of mistakes.

Some stuff seems to reasonably easy ans fast and some stuff well, it is just hard. Here is an image I have been tossing and turning for over a month now. It has gone thought alot of iterations. What I thought was going to be something relatively simple has become an epic. It was supposed to be a study application, just all those machine studies applied in some way. So a mech of some type scaling a hill, no an armoured soldier, a hill well maybe not ....
Played with some armour.
Abandoned that then thought about
environment a bit more

This is a study of a soap bottle I did on my lunch break. About 40 minutes effort. Last still life was the parachute guy back at the start of June. I wanted to bring some of the work I am doing to a higher level of finish. That has proven to take a lot of time and unfortunetly I have a liited amount of time available for this so in the past month studies have taken a back seat.

|Portrait Practice 4|
Changed up my process on this one. I used just a hard round brush and went to town. Even though I kept the brush small I finished this in about 3 hours or so. Probably a shorter time than if I went to complete using some of the other approaches I have used. The reference is from National Geographic a great resource.

This just popped out of nowhere. To be honest I had some time off and decided to do a piece and finish to as polished a level as I could achieve with an eye towards building a portfolio. I worked on the first piece for about a day. At the end of that I just took a break to doodle. If was a value piece.
The next day I continued working on it and got it finished in a surprising short time. It was a real texture fest. This is a real step up for me, which is great but now the bar is higher...............
