Sea witch study



Last night I couldn't sleep, I just had a great image in my head, crying to get out. So today I drew up a little 8x10 and did a color/value study. Roughly 3 hours. Fun stuff. I should do more of these! Holler at me if you think I should make a big 'un. The lights in the distance are a submarine.

That's a pretty nice study man. My favorite part is the color of the hand. You really get a sense of the luminescence of the skin with that red light passing through. I'm not exactly sure what the story of the piece is or what's going on in the background, but I think it would be worth doing bigger.

thats really interesting. The figure feels so fluid, cool lighting too.

Thanks! One of my main objectives with these little things is to obtain a more fluid motion with the figure.
