Here's the final for costumed figure drawing this week. I'm happy with it, but I think if I have some time, I'll give it another go. The application of the ink is a little sloppy, and the line quality (what I was focusing on) isn't quite there. I actually like the line quality more in the study, which is why I included it. This week I was trying for a Bruce Timm look, and while I'm starting to get a handle on the line weight, I think I could push the figure a little more.

This was done with pen and ink.

I throw thugs from rooftops at night.


So I've really wanted to give digital painting a go for awhile. Now that I've just installed CS5 on my computer, I figured now would be a good time to start! So, in line with my current obsession with Batman, I present a portrait of Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne. I tried to show my process a little here with the colors I laid out, and then the finished with I tried to refine. Any critique is welcome, as this is my first go at it, and painting digitally is something I want to try again.

Here's some drawings from tonight's costumed figure drawing class. We had a male model today, it was fun. Dip pen, brush, and india ink.
