How have you been? January has been a hell of a month. It feels like we're in the 23th week of this bloody month.
I've been feeling a little uninspired and stressed as of late and so I went back to doing a portrait (to produce just so I can eat). Also feeling kind of punctured by the virtually lacking amount of sales.
As always, the sketch process was the easiest part of the work. One thing that I should have done was a couple of thumbnails. Maybe there is a version of this that looks better or sublime. It's too late now.
The modeling and rendering of color value and their shapes was really hard as always. It bothered me so much that I went out and bought some oil paint to start learning traditionally to work with color. It's my opinion that maybe I'm not so good with color because I haven't done any traditional work or, at the least, studies with it.
So expect some uploads of my oil catastrophes and I learn this new medium. If you have any advice on how to work with oils please feel free to leave a comment below on what helped you along the way, keep in mind, of course, that paid lessons aren't a viable option for me.
