Pinecone study

A short little pine cone study--hoping it will somehow make me better at scales and feathers on wings.

Color added

Spent another hour adding color, felt like leaving it here, because if I add 5 more minutes I'll end up adding another hour, how things go...

Black and White short study: Sanborn park

Again trying to get used to trees (Because trees just kill me) I did a black and white study this time, I'll put color in later. Spent only about an hour and it was killer. Trees, youknow--you think you're finished and then you realize there's so much more that needs to be done.

It's been about two months so I think I should post in here again. I have been doing my studies, but work and etc caught up with me. Now that I'm in between jobs, I'll have time to post again.

So here's Sanborn Park here in Saratoga. We went camping last weekend, and I went up a little bit early to catch the light at the twilight hour (ok, maybe it was late) anyways, I have a real problem drawing trees, and since I want to get a lot better at that: trees.

Also, I'm using photoshop for this one (I usaully use painter) and I want to try and get as good at photoshop as I do at painter...and it's almost the same but just...I just miss my easy to reach brushes. (although I do like how it feels a lot more simple on photoshop than painter, because I can't go all brushes crazy ((although hypothetically I still can, it's just more work)))

A short study--about 2 hours, 40 minutes
