This is the start of a period of study for now focusing on faces. I am using Burne Hogarth - Drawing the Human head as study aid and I will complete some portrait studies- moving on to traditional media. So here is the first installment.
Worked on this one for a while. Started off with a figure and then dropped in the environment. Had some fun with the textures which I think is a first for me. Dropped some photo textures but these got painted out as the work progressed.
A lightening speedpaint study. This one took under 1 hour. The whole thing captured on Livestream. Brushes should not matter but in this case I made full use of a cloud brush which did a lot of the heavy lifting on this piece. Lightening was fiddly. Reference was from here.
