Frank Stockton has some truly phenomenal illustrations, I'm really digging his style!

Haha just for fun... though the color was a lot of blind guesswork : [ the red shadows in her face are a bit too saturated though and it doesn't really make sense, my bad
Also, the Internet on my laptop went haywire all of a sudden yesterday, and I still haven't got it to work...

Painting of the day!

I'm quite happy with this one, I hope that I managed to capture the general feel and palette of things, though I accidentally broke the tangent rule or whatever and it looks like the umbrella is growing out of the guy's head, haha.

I'm really itching to go to the beach these days, it's so nice out!

Whoops I screwed up on the perspective with this because I wasn't really paying attention to the horizon in the beginning... oh well
I think environments, besides being in natural light and least complicated with least interfering sources/color temperature and such will probably be a good place for me to start off color studies, plus I sort of, well kinda get to work on perspective as well...

Hmm, yeah, so I haven't been able to work on drawing much lately but I really need to work on some color crunching, I think it is my weakest point... I don't think I'd feel comfortable coloring something without a reference at this point because I'm rather struggling with color in relation to light/shadow, especially with shadow influence from reflected colors AJKDKDLJKDIESDKC

I'm going to conquer this pesky thing!
