I am doing some practice paintings using photo reference to increase my understanding of how light bounces off of faces.  So, while this isn’t an exact copy, it draws heavily from some photo work of my talented friend Jon Willis.  I have this crazy idea to start doing portraits for people, though I think they might be more stylized than this.  Let me know if you would be interested in something like that in the comment section.

I wasn’t really watching the clock on this one, but but I spent a couple hours on it.  Corel Painter.
