I'm happy with how I have improved over the past four years, although I can still see many areas to improve on :) Sun, 15 Sep 2013 09:13:50 -0400 Danse Macabre http://shadowness.com/Jaybirdy/danse-macabre <a href="http://shadowness.com/Jaybirdy/danse-macabre"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/372267/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />It has been a productive weekend. Started sketching while listening to Saint-Saens, and ended up with this.

I find armour and metallic objects like guns really challenging and intimidating to paint. And as such, I need to force myself to practice them more to get over that. The ref and inspiration and clearly Commander Sheppard from the Mass Effect series, which belongs to Bioware.

This is the first painting I've done in a while without ref images, just to see if I could do it. I'm sorry if her anatomy is a little off.

This was definitely my favourite colour scheme to experiment with.
