Different type of speedpaint this time. Sketched the head myself - I wanted a bit of a slightly cartoony face on this one - but I used references for the lighting direction and for the color palette. The challenge on this was painting with two colors that have nothing to do with human skin tone and pulling them off as two light sources while also keeping a believable sense of value. Its not super great, but it was a good exercise and it was fun to paint with these colors, even if I cheated and used an eyedropper tool for my reference.
This one took longer - around 3 hours.
