Another Portrait...and Sketches




The top one is a portrait commission, where I slowed down and worked very methodically (to make sure I got things right). The rest are alla prima sketches from life, no more than 2 hours each. I didn't even have a chance to finish the last head there...

waow!
you did an impressive work on the eye and lightings!
bravo!

I can't tell what I dig the most, these painting exercises and portraits or when you do some more "cartoon" digital stuffs, you're so good in both disciplines...

Very nice Marco. I see the Weistling influence in these.

I think the last portrait looks great "unfinished". It has a nice unexpected quality to it.
