a "practice in public" (well interwebs) sketch that started hopefully... then stalled when I became obsessively fixated on keeping IN a poorly drawn eye. I mean the eye itself was great- but it wasn't the right eye- Masie's eye. Yet I wouldn't cut it! What would GRMM do? Kill your darlings, darling! So I painted right over that eye after 2 wasted days of trying to MAKE it work and started over. Ahhhh...much better now.
I am forever thankful for Sara Tepes videos for inspiration. Greyscale to coloured digital paintings are hard for me, pracrtice x3 right? I highly suggest Saras videos on youtube for inspiration and technique!
Thank you Ben Sound for use of the track "Instinct" in the screen capture video!
(obviously I do not own any rights to any of the Games of Thrones characters or stories and do not profit from geeking out and painting them)
