Here are a few quick studies. These were just to stay warm with oils. They are all 5×7 oil on paper.
A couple quick warmup sketches. Sierra and Jenna.
This was supposed to be a reference image, but I thought I would just let the photo and the post production work I did on it speak for itself. I quite enjoy this one. I may post more in the future.
Here is the first real portrait of Sierra. It’s oil on board. 22 X 30 or something along those lines. I plan on posting up a process post so you can see the progression.
OK, i wasn’t going to post this one as it really doesn’t resemble her as much as I want it to. But I do like some of the brush work, and a few elements. So here it is.
Here is my latest Long Study. Yes, it is Sierra again. She is a good muse. I hope you like it.
Since I haven’t updated in quite some time, here are some warm up studies of Sierra.
Here is another long study of Sierra. I deviated from the reference a bit because it didn’t work within the composition. But I think the outcome is better for it.
Here is the latest digital long study. I couldn’t tell you how long I took on it as I was busy on other projects at the same time. The model is Sierra.
