Master Copy - "Black Bashi-Bazouk"

This is a Master Copy of Gerome Jean Leon's "Black Bashi-Bazouk". It's probably the last one I'm going to be doing for quite a while. I learned a lot with this one, specifically on how clothing/folds work, and more on colors as well. A tutorial will be online on how I created this image shortly. Below is the WIP if you're interested:

Master Copy: The Bacchante

I'm currently doing some Master copies in order to help improve my skill. I think I can learn a lot studying from the old Masters, especially in terms of color. The original piece titled "The Bacchante" is from Gerome Jean Leon. I started this one in black and white and added color in the later stages. I might be using this technique in all my future pieces, I'm not so sure. Colors can tend to get a bit muddy if you start off with greyscale, but hopefully I can recitfy that. You can check out the WIP below as well:

Project Barbra

This image was created for an online art forum, Pixel Brush. I'm very satisfied with the results I must say. This is easily my strongest piece in terms of color harmony. If you're interested in how I created this image, a tutorial is available here. Enjoy :)
