Hi! I’m studying figure drawing and painting with oils. For now, I’m focused on getting familiar with the medium and develop a process.
These are some recent studies from a life drawing session.
This is a Michelangelo study I did on his birthday on March 6 🙂
Some hand studies in ink from the NMA image library.
A couple portraits for practice.
Finally, some heads from imagination.

Woah so awesome studies you’ve got here!March 17, 2018 at 5:56 am #49701
I have an instagram page here where I have a lot of my recent studies.
These drawings from photos were me experimenting with photoshop brushes. I’ve found that I didn’t prefer drawing digitally because of the lack of texture, everything looked so smooth and then I found a brush set which had these texture settings applied and now they look just like charcoal drawings.
Some heads from imagination for my D&D character, a human cleric, also done digitally. I’m trying to keep my digital work as close as possible to traditional because then I don’t have to learn how to draw all over again, lol.
This is a study from painting done by the artist, Johan Grenier. He’s great with digital and also uses a traditional approach to painting. Here, I’m using the simple round brush in photoshop.
And just a quick tip – if you want to see these images ‘enlarged’ just right click and select ‘view image’. This will open the picture with the original size of these drawings.March 17, 2018 at 5:11 pm #49807DeanyParticipant
What brush set you’ve got? I’ve been looking for some textured brushes that look like traditional media too. Found some, though haven’t explored them thoroughly yet.March 18, 2018 at 2:39 pm #50065
I got the brush set from here. There’s lots to choose from but I’m just trying to use one or two brushes as my workhorse brushes.March 20, 2018 at 12:44 am #50411RobertSeal-CoonParticipantNo badges. No points.
Stunning studies. I love the hand studies. These forums are really good for inspiring me to work harder.September 9, 2021 at 8:10 am #1748887
It’s been over 3 years since my last post! I do regret not being active in this wonderful community. Every moment is a chance to turn things around so here I am, with a recent torso study in Photoshop, trying out some new brushes. There’s also the sketch I did before painting on top on a separate layer.
Every painting teaches me to appreciate the halftones more. The halftones do so much work in painting but are rarely given the credit they deserve!
