A Bedouin Arab - Master Study

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?

Idea goes to my wife. Bonus points if you can guess what this is. :)

Bridgman studies - hands

More hands, using George Bridgman's Constructive Anatomy as reference.
Pardon the shitty scanning.

A Matter of Preference - Arrios

It was my wife's idea; I thought it was too funny not to try it.
My Ragnarok Online's SinX, on personal preferences.

Man, fuck mountains.

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.

Super Cosplayer

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.
