Midnight Figure Painting (Tasteful Nudity Warning)

I need to speedpaint more. I love this site:  it has some really good photo reference and the models are usually in poses you can't get in real life cuz no one can stand still that long. I want to get to the point where I can be familiar with the value and color ranges for basic figure painting without having to look at references. I did some clicking around with the eyedropper tool and looked for patterns in the skin tones I was painting from and I think I'm starting to catch some things.

Oh, PS - there's nudity. Actually, I think this is the first time there's been nudity on this blog, but I feel like its tasteful and not erotic. And not even painted all that well, c'mon.


  1. Nice! I gotta get around to drawin' more naked ladies. For figure drawing purposes of course...(shifty glance)

    1. Wesley, you always know just what to say and how to say it. maybe sometime we'll draw people naked together.
