Color comps re-do

As some of may recall I’m taking a digital painting through Chris Oatley.  I completely my first homework assignment and posted it here.  It was Rembrandt as a cat.  Well after being critiqued by my fellow classmates I re-did it, so here is the new post. I think this is a great improvement over the first one and would love your opinions.  The first one is the one with the blue back ground.

Doodle Day

Its so hard to believe, but today is the one year anniversary of the Doodle Day group.  I joined the group at its inception, so that I would draw every day.  I have to admit that this has been a truly awesome experience for me and my drawing skills have improved tremendously. There are many wonderful illustrators that are part of this group and many who just wanted to try their hand at doodling.  If you are interested you can find out more information here Thank You so much Alison Hertz for developing this wonderful group.  Happy Anniversary Doodle Day.

New Class

Taking a new class through Chris Oatley, trying to improve my digital painting skills.  One of the first assignments was a color comps on a picture we created by turning a famous painting into an animal.  I choose a Rembrandt self-portrait into a cat.  Turned out interesting.

Hand Study

I recently did a hand study for my Doodle Day group.  I like some of them more than others, but I also realize that they are doodles.  I only spend about 5 minutes on each one, I’m sure if I spent more time and used reference they would have come out much nicer.  The  group picture is the hand study: pointing, holding, fist, and pinching.  The second picture is not a doodle, these hands I spent a bit more time on.hand study
