Daily Painting No.17 – Portrait

11-17-2013

I wanted to try a new technique of digital painting. A method of cleaner brush strokes. It took me a while to get used to it, that’s why I didn’t get as much done. The last thirty minutes I was starting to get the hang of it.. The teeth and the hair are unfinished as well as the wrinkles around his eye. It’s very unfinished. The reference I used was some random person on Wikimedia commons. He was apparently once the prime minister of Norway, a person I am ignorant of knowing anything about him.  only the soft round, eyedropper and eraser where used.

I painted this in Photoshop with a wacom tablet. Time Spent 1 hr

My first portrait ‘commission’.  This the longest I have spent on a portrait so far. Four hours. Instead of drawing a portrait a day for a hour, I spent a hour a day on this painting for 4 days. I am pleased with the face and lips. I  simplified the hair to make it more manageable. I need more time figuring out how to render hair more efficiently.

Portrait of a Officer of the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID)

Today’s daily portrait –  a CID officer in a helicopter. I have in the past drawn ancient armor and outfits. I thought it would be fun tackle a modern soldier’s outfit and helmet. I spent about a hour painting it in Artrage. I used the roller brush for the background and the oil brush for the officer.

The photo reference I used is from the U.S Army available as public domain. I liked the anonymity of the officer in the picture. I honestly don’t know alto about CID. I just liked the picture.

I missed drawing a head portrait yesterday due to spending all day painting the anthro jackal warrior that day. I just couldn’t get myself to draw one yesterday. Guess I was just burned out. Strange as it sounds, that one day break brought back my zeal to draw them. I had allot of fun drawing and painting this picture. To my surprise I actually spent 35 minutes on this value sketch, I would of spent another 25 minutes on her if it wasn’t 11 at night and being so tired from a wedding/reception that I attended. I feel that I am starting to improve.

I’m please with the face. She’s almost in profile. The hair and neck could use some more work.
