Love and Hate WIP
After completing a rewarding project for a friend and an awful set of commissions for a difficult client, I've decided to do something for myself.
Right now I'm at the underpainting stage, and before I do things like hair and the arrow and such, I'm resolving composition and anatomy. The top figure is more figured-out than the bottom. After I complete a monochromatic underpainting, I'll apply oil glazes that use an alkyd base as a medium rather than a traditional base like linseed oil.
I've fallen in love with glazes! I wish that everyone can experience what it's like to use them. Most of the people I know in RL shy away from my offer to show them how easy and effective glazes are..kind of like offering someone who likes steak a trip to the slaughterhouse! I'll never totally understand how the process of art scares people.
(edit: Thank you so much, Jet! I should have looked at page two before posting my response =) )
