And I haven't practiced poses from reference much; I'm studying muscle structure at the moment, but after that I'm going to try to get in to posing more.
And, since I haven't updated in forever, here's a quick 1-2 hour speedpaint I did of a villain from me and Pargile's DnD campaign.
It's quick and the colors are terrriiibbble, but I was experimenting with a different technique. I'd say I've got it kind of down; I understand the concepts, but it's a very messy technique and my perfectionist self doesn't like it. Gotta loosen up!
CnC welcome. :3Edit:
So, Pargile is always making fun of me because I'm in love with merpeople, orbs, spells, and runes. I draw merpeople all the time, nearly all my characters are spellcasters, and like every other room in our last DnD game had some kind of orb / rune / glyph. xD
So he figured the only thing that could be worse would be to put them all together... so... I did! 8D
