More studies again
This one was just free from mind. Trying to construct the head and just blocking in the color and shape.
One try that went rather smooth:
I didnt watch for proportions or something, just the mood and light.
But I still had to use the color picker once on the leg, that strong color in the shadow affected by reflected light.
This one was focused on the soft edges and a good result in the overall.
Its amazing how some artists can do a believable and realistic looking face with ease. All this veeeeery soft edges and hard to note changes in value and color are giving me chills. Its so hard to do.
I tried to do this in one session and when I that it was good (picture nr5 in the collection) I put the photo over it to check why the face looked so strange. I was shocked to see that I was so far off. I made another picture row to show that one.
Pretty frustrating right now.
