It’s been years since I did any real painterly painting, which is awful, and I’ve never done any digital painting so I decided it’s time to remedy that. I’ve been playing around with brushes and color palettes, and practicing skin tones: adding reds, blues, greens to the high and low lights… It’s tough to keep them from looking dead lol
Here’s one of the faces I was working on earlier. I’ve just barely worked in the base colors. The form of the rest of the face is sill pretty off, but I spent most of my time on the nose, trying to get the shape and color to work together.
