Looks like you have great beginnings here Sara:thumbsup: , where do you get your references from ?

Thanks all for the kind words!

TWTom, I use some customized brushes in Painter from Oils category. I also have a colorscheme for skin that I often use and with colors picked by myself over a period of figurepainting. I use a basecolor, with highlights and shadows in the same color with different hues, and add greens, pinks, yellows and purple etc to get away from a monochromatic colorscheme.

justjean, thereīs a great photographer that shares his modelstudies on the net here, http://characterdesigns.com. A lot of great figurestudies and poses!

And hereīs some small progress

Sara, I adore your figure studies! :clap: How do you blend? It's always so well done. And thanks for sharing that link....:)

Thanks for your comments!
Skinny - I blend by using my standard brushes (customized from the oils category) and set resat and opacity to a very low level.

Some more progress. Gonna start the background now, and refine the rest later.
