Two riders


Two riders
As promised after the last study I went ahead and tried to apply some of what I learned.  Changed up the lighting big time.  Anyway pushed everything as far as I could.  Sketched it out in grey scale then dropped in the colour.  You can see it drifted somewhat from the early sketch.

Skull Still Life Study

Skull Still Life Study
A study from life.  About 2 hours.  The skull is not an anatomically correct model.  It was a cheap prop I picked up at Halloween but good enough for the major forms.  Light was courtesy of my monitor.

After Cesare Auguste Detti-To the joust

After Cesare Auguste Detti- To the joust
This is a detail of the larger image To the joust  by Cesare Auguste Detti. I wanted to do this to force myself to work on the details.  Done a lot of smaller shorter works so a good change of pace. Now I am committed to doing a piece to apply some of what I picked up by doing this. Most of the action is captured on Livestream

Scouting

Scouting
Being working on this for a while. Seems like months but probably feels that way as I was chipping away at it for about 2 hours a day. Some things were more successful than others but will take what I have learned and move on.

The progress shots show how much this evolved.
