Chazz. Squares. (Yet another WIP)

Another portrait of of a friend of mine. Originally this was to be a cartoony version of him, but I've decided to go a different route. Essentially, I'll be keeping the realistic look to him, but making his surroundings more playful.

Still in WIP status

A while ago I gave you all a sneak peek at this sucker, and now I figured, since I've kept you waiting so long, I may as well show you what I have.

Since then, I have converted this into a horizontal format as well as a traditional painting. Will be posting it and many others in a few weeks.

Mon. 4:10 AM and I just studied the wrong chapter

So I said to hell with it and went to paint. I don't know what sort of study one would call this, but I just felt like painting someone I knew. I was already on my good friend, Kelly's page on Facebook, so I grabbed her main pic, and decided to have at it.

It's not traced, but it is heavily referenced. I didn't even change the pose or anything. And outside of her wildly colored hair (I took liberties with the colors all over), and some proportional issues on my end, this here is just a copy of the picture I was looking at. I really wanted to step right into the painting instead of starting with a typical outline and all that, so that's what I did.

Hope you don't mind Kell.

Lines or no lines?

I can't decide.
