A study of John Singer Sargent's "A Bedouin Arab". Done
in Painter 9, about 45 minutes. One layer, with no ctrl+z or eraser,
one brush (Oil Brushes - Bristle Brush) on default setting. I feel kinda bad for trying to study this, actually. I feel like I don't do it enough justice. But at least I'm trying, eh?
As much as I hate (and suck at) drawing
mountains, I need to get better at backgrounds, and such. I gave myself a
30-minute limit, trying to make the scene recognizable without delving
into too much detail. Reference.
Today is my sister-in-law's birthday. She runs a cosplay shop/forum, and this is the mascot. She also loves Kingdom Hearts. So!
In order to do her a proper birthday present, I drew Super Cosplayer,
her site's mascot, trying to mimic the Kingdom Hearts look.
