1Hr Figure Painting

Here's a quick figure study done today for fun. Needed to do something fairly mindless that I could just observe and paint, and figure drawings are always a good option for that.

This one in particular is fun because I attempted to paint this same photo just before starting at TAD. If you're up for a laugh, check it out: [Link]

Needless to say, I think I've improved, haha. I thought I was a pretty good painter back then, but good gravy some of those forms and values are just abysmal. Not to mention the wonkytastic proportions. Plus it took me 3x as long as this one did, hah.

Thanks to justmeina on dA for the reference!


  1. really great work man, every thing is proportional - except the head it seems D:
    man i wish i could see the study you did ages ago - but i'm not 18 yet and deviantart won't let me look at naked people T_T
    keep up the great work man :D

  2. Thanks man!
    And yeah, the head is a bit off, didn't spend as much time on it as the rest.
    And if you want to see it, it's on the first page of my CA sketchbook as well, post #6.
