Digital paint study 2 (2 hours)

I take no credit for the design of the character or pose.  This was meant only as a piece to study painting technique and color use within a set time limit.

Got hung up on the face and it ate up a lot of the time.

    Lookin' really nice, man. Scott would probably kick your ass for the eye patch, though ;)

  2. That's why I did it!

    I figured if I'm going to be a paint study that's nowhere near original I can throw an eyepatch in there to seal the deal. :)

  3. Your wasting to much time dude.. here a quick tutorial on how to make a decent portfolio piece.
    Copy image => Paste => Flip => Add eye patch
    you bloody amateur.

  4. it's nice you're setting yourself a time limit, but maybe try a piece where you bring it to a higher level of finish and not worry too much about time. then you can focus on subtleties and emulate the reference's brush strokes closer.

    you'll probably learn more and be able to aply these ideas in future work faster.

  5. Sounds good. I'll do exactly that with the next study.
