Digital Painting Studies: I’m still trying to learn how to digitally paint. Not totally aiming for realistic, just focusing on relying less on using lines.

Only reference used was for the ear… Seems I can’t find decent reference art that isn’t from google image search… [heh]
Although I saw a bunch of resources going around with great references for artists, can anyone point me in the right direction?

Studies [1.5 hrs]: Working on warm up illustrations using the studies posted by the amazing Eyecager. ♥

Did a rough backround flanking out shapes first then working in stages tightening the details. Then did the figures using only silhouette’s. Texture added and gradients for interest. T’was fun to do.

Studies: Inspired [from my idol, /gush] Eyecager’s post on her studies of Carol Marine’s work process. I’ve still got a long way to go, didn’t want to do this in color just yet so I stuck with grey tones. It’s interesting, nonetheless.
