August-September sketches

During Wizard World Chicago-I managed to pick up some books that I had been meaning to read-one of them being the much acclaimed Maus. 

I had heard of it before, but never got around to reading it. It was fantastic! I have read and watched different media regarding the Holocaust, but this book was a great read (at least for me it was).

Hence the first handful of sketches were of SS officers and similar WWII subjects. Then it was back to good old fashioned anatomy sketches....

Digital Painting Exercise 2 (source image from Character

Here's another digital painting exercise I did in Photoshop, once again I used a source image from Character'm pretty satisfied with how this one came out.

*Update 9/23/2013*

Softened some of the rendering from my last post. Also adjusted the position and proportions of the girl...difficult part of this little exercise was readjusting everything from the original...which I did waaaay back in 2008...I included the original to show how far its come along.
