Chick Studies

Just decided to do some face studies of some girls. I also tried to exercise the use of big brush strokes to define the form. I limited myself to one brush which was rectangular and tried to see what I could do with it. It was interesting cause I had to fight myself on certain parts and just let some details go.

Diggin through boxes

So I was digging through some old bags and boxes of materials I had left over from school a while back and decided to use the materials I once deemed as pointless, and put them to use for a nice little painting practice session. Luckily I had just enough of the supplies to mess with, all except a white acrylic. It was like cement inside the tube, so I just tried to make it more playable by kneading it between my fingers. Here is a quick practice painting, multi media ftw! Oh also I tried using some of my digital techniques on the traditional. I started from gray scale and tried to colorize that ish. Some funky white, and no black was used for this.

2nd Commission

Wew...I started this a while back, but got caught up at work a lot shortly after. I struggled through, and felt like I lost tons of steam during the break away from this. I tried to tackle a few different things, and found a nice way to achieve a vignette look I was happy with. The client was super patient during the wait and I can't thank him enough.
