Here are a couple of studies I did using the cool Posebook app for iOS by Stephen Silver, and a value sketch from a random Suicide Girl photo. I've spent the last week or so full of lurgie and cold, though well on the road to recovery and being back up to full speed.. so hopefully I've have some more work on my Mikey painting to share soon! I got some great feedback from my coursemates at the Oatley Academy on how I could really ramp up the drama and dynamism with the lighting, so I'm currently working hard to render in the detail and factor it in. Speaking of which, we had a UK Oatley Academy meet up last Saturday at The National Gallery which was great! I got to not only put faces to names, but also got to meet up with some really fun (and very talented) artists. Roll on the next one!
