Portrait study!

Here's a digital painting study I did! It was a lot of fun to do, the colors were very interesting to work with, and it really didn't take too long to do. I should really start doing more portrait studies.

I posted the process work first to give you an idea of how I worked. This was a technique I learned in Figure Illustration 2 class this past semester, of blacking out your figure then building up values or colors from that. I like working this way it's very fast, but I still like playing around with techniques! Hope you like it.


  1. Wooow! It looks so much like the reference! And such a good reference to work off of too! Good job!

  2. Thanks :). Yeah it was such a great photo I couldn't resist - I'll be uploading another tomorrow!

  3. ah! i saw this one facebook and was blown away. it's so photographic, very well done!
