Sketchdump #69 – Portrait and Value Study
Well, and portrait studies of course. The monochrome ones are photo-referenced, the colored speedpainting is from imagination obviously. The first to recognize the guy gets a virtual cookie :)
Sadly two of the greyscale images get displayed much darker online than on my computer… but I have no idea how to change that.
What did I learn?
– When painting the nose, the surrounding shadows from the cheeks are as important as the nose itself.
– Pay more attention to the placement of the eyes in the skull!
– Don’t forget to treat the part above and below the eyebrow as one form.
