Study



I love doing quick studies of paintings from the masters. Maybe not an old master but this is a copy of a painting from Malcolm Liepke. I added some things that weren't in the original though like that red texture. I think its extremely beneficial to really study how others paint and use color etc. Its also a lot of fun!
This was around 2 hours done in photoshop. Dammit I need to get away from that program but its fun to try and make it look like paint. Next time I'll use the real thing. I've caught myself a couple times reaching for my Command E (eraser tool) key while sketching on paper. :|

Hey Jennifer, I'm a lurker. :D

I love this, and I especially love your recent character studies. You inspire me to paint more to get better.

Keep it up!

Very nice, and you did a good job making it NOT look like it's digital.
