so for the update today is two images. First is a skill test I did, the really rendered head is all from mind, checking to see how good my understanding of structure and planes/light/anatomy is. which leaves a lot to be desired. But, it's a good jumping off point, tells me what I need to work on. second image is a study I did of a henry yan drawing, about 2 hours total on it. really shows how much I suck at painting in PS... can't control values in it for shit... something else that I need to work on. hopefully I can get at least 2-3 of these done a week. try to get my brush control/value control up where it needs to be!!
