I finally decided to get a sketchbook thread started. I want to get in the habit of doing daily sketches. Even though Im an illustrator, I dont really draw or really paint enough. I produce a lot of 3d modeled objects and scenes for my illustrations instead of hand rendering them, using Photoshop more as a retouching tool then a painting/drawing tool. So, this should be motivating.
I decided to do a dark moody portrait yesterday and picked Brando in the character of Kurtz from the movie Apocalypse Now as a subject. So heres pic #1, done in PS:
