Babes and Lies

Sorry guys, I lied! The opening for "Inle" is this Friday March 11th from 7pm-10pm at Gallery 1988 Melrose.

Also, I did a quick digital sketch of a babe this evening:

Based on this photo of Claudia Schiffer by Mario Testino:

Thanks guys!

Cindy- This took about 3hrs but I'm trying to get faster. I worked from reference and color-picked since my purpose is just to get comfortable with working in photoshop. I'll post the original photo in case you are interested.

This is stunning! I'm shocked it only took you 3 hours! One of my favorite exercises is characterizing from a photo like this. Love it.
