Need to get back to doing studies again.
Tonight it's Frodo. 2 hours.

I tried something different today - just a quick outline sketch for basic proportion and then I went right to color blocking. I didn't let myself use any soft brushes - only one hard brush.

I also stayed at 100% zoom and did as much detail as I could at that level before allowing myself to zoom in. I painted over the lines first thing and tried to look at negative space and color blocks instead of outlines.

I'm kind of happy with how it turned out. I think my favorite photo study so far.

Ugh, so swamped with work lately, I haven't had any time to post.
But a certain XBox 360 title will be released soon as a result, so I don't feel TOO bad.

In the meantime, here's a portrait of my nephwe from back around Christmas I forgot to post, and some goofy goatman I just wrapped up tonight.
