How I feel like I look when I get anxious.
I really like the studies idiacanthidae has been doing so I wanted to do somethin quick as an homage.
Another colour study using one of Carol Marine's paintings as reference. This time I set myself 30 minutes. No colour picking.
Some digital painting practice. Full disclosure: Since I had a very limited amount of time tonight and I was just experimenting with the painting toolset in SAI* I traced the photo I found from google search and then worked on top of that. I very rarely do this but sometimes I find it’s useful for practice purposes.
I think I might do simpler pieces next and give myself a bit more time on them to eliminate the need for tracing in the first place. Then I can work up to perspective.

*This is the first proper piece of digital painting I’ve done
Painted Declan Shalvey as thanks for having me over. I’ll have to return the favour sometime dude!
Also, yes I am aware it looks like a hybrid of Elvis Costello and Mark Maron. You can’t win ‘em all I guess. Looking forward to seeing Dec and Jordie’s painting side by side.
