I have been itching to seriously get into oils again for ages. I haven’t touched them in over a year and probably haven’t taken them seriously in even more than that. So here are a couple of test pieces I started today to see how I fared.
The first is a shoddy still life of some headphones. Lesson learned: I am far too impatient to sit down and get a solid drawing down before I paint… need to work on that one.
The second is a W.I.P. portrait from the beautiful Reine-Haru.Deviantart.com stock seen here: http://reine-haru.deviantart.com/art/Princess-Stock-2-211061095 it’s not terribly accurate but i’ve never tried painting a person before with oils and I just wanted to get that scary part out the way. When the paint dries a little more I may come back and darken up more of the tones to give more contrast and depth.
Fin! Actually looking at it I might go back and do some texture touch ups… For now enjoy!

A W.I.P. sneak peek of something I’m currently working on.
Been trying to keep my life drawing skills up where I can using http://www.pixelovely.com/gesture/figuredrawing.php
I have never really done any life drawing via digital mediums so I thought I’d give it a whirl. 10 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, 5min and 10 min poses.

Thanks to all who made this evening awesome! Had lots of fun and wanted to share my sketches with you! Unfortunately there is water damage at the back of my sketchbook where I was working which results in those big unwanted shadows on some of them…. BUT YOU GET THE IDEA!
