Itch to Paint

One thing about working at the my apt is that it gets very... depressing and the melancholy feel starts to sink in.  I pretty much dislike windows that face south because of that.  Since I couldn't focus on my animation homework I decided to do a 1 hour portrait.  

In this one project I'm working on with a group of friends - a fantasy/adventure/comedy story, one of the main characters, Ethan, has an uncle who was a king of this well established kingdom.  For the longest time we were trying to figure out how he would look like, still a work in progress, but that gave me the push to do something rather than sit at my desk, staring off into space. So here's a rough start to this character's physical appearance.

Quick 1 hour study

Finally got a break from animating this semester. Here's a quick 1 hour portrait study. I was messing with a few brushes that I have yet to experiment with and it was fun to test out the different textures and tweak them a bit just to see what happens. Right now it's looking more like a rough reversal project. xD Ah... that was one charcoal related rendering project that I don't miss. haha. I'm happy with the way it turned out especially for an hour study.  Hopefully, I can find more time in the near future to bust out more paintings.
