So here is 003...my teacher Daniel suggested I try doing one without filling up the whole page. I'm pretty happy with it, the negative space type was fun so I'll probably use that again for some other stuff.
The Gene Shallot painting was for a celebrity portrait assignment...I'm pretty happy with the results. Some of the colors aren't totally there for me, but considering how little I paint I think it was a solid first portrait effort.
This is a work in progress, I'm just stoked on the drawing. More pieces soon!
