Luke is finished.... I think blah blah.. sketch dump
Here's the finished portrait of my little brother Luke. The hair was a little tricky, and I'm still far from satisfied with it, but the drop off date for the juried show I plan on entering it in starts tomorrow, so we'll see if any improvements can be made by then. For the shirt and blanket, I did a red underpainting and when I initially blocked in the colors, a bit of the red showed through, the very point of the underpainting, so I didnt want to do much more to it other than add some tints, tones, and highlights. But now that I've done that, I feel like it's very unfinished compared to the rest of the piece. Whatever. I'll figure it out.
There's a few sketches in there too.
