Finally got that new wireless Wacom, it's dreamy!
Here's something I did to take the tablet for a spin this weekend. I recently decided to sit down and watch the color theory DVD's a friend of mine gave me a long time ago. I don't know why it took me so long, after watching them, I can clearly see a lot of mistakes I was making in my "underpainting" technique that I was stumbling through by trial and error. I'm still not at the spot where I automagically know the perfect colors to use, but I think I'm taking steps to get closer. Practice practice practice!
In case you can't tell, it's supposed to be a caricature of John Cleese. In looking up reference I found that he's really, really serious in almost all his photos...thus the puppy-dog sadface. Maybe I should just tell everyone it's Poe. :P
Likeness and proportions. Tricky stuff. I suppose that is next on my list, LOL.
