For those interested in my previous work, you can have a luke here: http://jamethee.tumblr.com/
Portrait painted mostly from imagination. Trying to apply what I've learnt from doing studies. I find that you always have to be looking for a specific thing to focus on instead of being a copy machine. Say if you wanted to practice rendering, the drawing doesnt have to be accurate, and you don't have to make it look finished. As long as you achieved the look you were after then that is enough. But that is only what I find that works for me. I'm interested in hearing how you guys approach your work.
This one is a study after Costa Dvorezky. I just love his brushwork.
