How many of you do value and color studies? This one has been done courtesy of my prof. for a current project (sketch previously posted) to be completed in Photoshop. I think it reads really well, puts the focus on the farmer. That's where it needs to be, I think. I'll admit the only time I do these is when it's been required but I do very much see the value in it. I am usually in such a hurry to get to the end result, which a lot of the time does not end up like the picture in my head. So, maybe I need to get better at these to make the end result the best it can be. Is this something you make it a habit to do?
I adore children’s illustration and spend my time drawing and painting. I especially enjoy creating characters. After a bit of sketching they seem to take on a life of their own and are kind enough to let me get to know them.
