Fancy Animals Color Comps

I learned a lot about color comps today, and different ways to adjust the colors of a painting in simple clean ways. So, I started the painting and and created different color comps, 1. cooler purplish colors, 2. warmer rusty colors, 3. greenish tints, and 4. warm golden colors.


Fancy Animals

I've just started the Magic Box, Chris Oatley Academy program, and for assignment 1, we do a "fancy animals" assignment. It's kind of a hybrid of an animal and a traditional portrait.

So I am doing a deer version of Duchess of Portland.

Here are some sketches and the reference painting, and a deer photo.
