Just some recent stuff....First of a digital painting from figure drawing, I have more in my sketch books just have to get around to scanning or photographing them. These are alot of fun to do and you can get pretty far pretty quickly. I usuually sketch it out, and block in an overall middle value and then block in a pretty simple shadow value. I then work some saturation into the core shadow, hit some highlights, and bounce some light into the shadow and whoomp there it is...then some random robot shapes for fun, just messing around with form. Then the ever present dude with a gun, followed by two quick environment sketches( love doing these) and then two photo studies, pictures with multiple people are a pain...have to practice more of those.

Just been doing some photo studies to practices my value range and get a better understanding of saturation...Trying to understand what is actually happening in the photo, and trying to represent it quickly and efficiently is actually pretty difficult. These are also just studies so I spent about an hour or two on each one, more focusing on getting a good representation of what the light is actually doing in the photo as opposed to pounding out all the detail.
