Digital Color Studies

The first one is from Vyle, look me a very long time to "finish". The others are from a photograph, Rembrandt and the last one is from life. I'm working on another Rembrandt self portrait master copy right now.
I just stared using color and need to be careful not to let it get too mushy. That's why I mainly work with paint blobs to get more structure.

Figure Drawing

Done weekly from January till last week. The first and third picture are the newest ones. A lot of stuff is over-constructed, but I needed this kind of practice to better understand the forms. Now I seem to need less construction lines to get the forms right. The poses range from 5 to 10 minutes.

Thumbnail Brainstorming

I do a lot of those sketches by just starting somewhere. The outcome is always a surprise and helps getting fun ideas without getting the same results over and over again.
