Strange Creature

Since I seriously need a lot of exercise about human anatomy, I wanted to copy a reference photo from an old fashion magazine I had at home, and try to modify something in the composition. It was first intended as a quick exercise, but then I became more and more addicted to details. The anatomy is not satifying, but it looks like I'm on the right way if I compare with my previous works about humans.


Below there are a couple of closer views. I must say that Linda Bergkvist's tutorials are very helpful, even if I'm quite far away from hers wonderful pictures.

Thank you very much! It is always nice to read encouraging comments even if not everything in the painting is good!

Non scrivo in inglese, tiè! Ma ti dico che vedendo il "quadro" per intero ti dà una specie di emozione, ma guardando i dettagli...bhè, sono splendidi, questi occhi dicono molto, accidenti! Ma come fai ad esprimerti così attraverso un mezzo "freddo" come il pc! Complimenti davvero!!!!!
