Java with goggles (oil painting)
Not too long ago, I started exploring what it would be like to render my caffeine charged character, Java, as if she were a mix between real and more manga-ish (dare I say?)
This is probably my second attempt to render figures sans reference. In past, I would hire models or get friends to pose for me. I found painting without too much reliance on a photo to be quite refreshing.
On a side note, a colleague of mine has suggested using Tumbler as a blog posting site. Not sure right now if I want to take that leap after becoming so used to using Blogger.
