I spent the year-end holidays doing head studies and making flesh tone color charts. It was much more fun than it sounds. There are definite problems with each of these studies, but I learned so much. Plus I was painting and having fun. What more can you ask?
Angry lady, 8x10:
Zombie girl, 11x14. I did this after watching Chris Saper's video on monochrome portraits. For some reason, her painting didn't have this zombie look.
Mr. Big (Nose), 8x10. Definite anatomy issues, but there's something about it I liked anyway.
