Hey there everyone, I’m new around here and to digital art in general (though I have a limited experience in traditional mediums). I got my tablet a few weeks ago and had some time to play around with, so here’s my first head:

Beautiful study.

The shading really conveys the forms and details in an impressive way.

EDIT: Was inspired to do a quick master study myself. 15 min sketch done in ArtRage 2,5 of Head 015 (Botticelli)

Thanks for providing such great threads at this one. Just love drawing from the old masters :slight_smile:

Just two days left until “My month” has passed, so this will probably be the last before moving on to part 2. Really learned a lot from the studies I did. Thanks a lot. :slight_smile:
