A study done from this absolutely gorgeous portrait photo by apalkin
... which I can't figure out how to link. Every time I do it just shows up as a broken thumbnail?? I'll write in the link as soon as I can figure out how. :/
my painting does not do the model justice at all, but it was a really good practice. I wanted to study the lighting on her skin, so I'm not fretting too much over the fact that the resemblance isn't quite there. Thanks to apalkin for allowing other visual artists to use his photos are reference!
Manga Studio 5, no idea how long it took but it was a lot longer and more in-depth than I initially intended.
