Simone as Astrid - Paint Up from Sketch

Paint up - adding details that I was unable to get to in the timed pose.

Original sketch.
This was from earlier in the semester when I had one of our amazing models, Simone, posing as Astrid for the class. The main point I wanted to get across was at the sketch stage you want to get what is the most important - in this case, the figure. I was able to add the shields and swords later. This, like everything, takes practice, because some will and should draw what the model is sitting on. As you progress though, you'll have the confidence to place the figure without everything else.
