I realized I hadn't posted any of these in my blog, so I figured I'd post them side by side. They are about four months apart and they were both very challenging , but i learned a LOT from them.
good times with the nike, in pencil and oils :).
edit: Oh and I added a couple extra artists and art website links!The Art Renewal Center link is incredible, one of the best online archives of classical art...EVER! CG Hub is also a wonderful resource for more contemporary artists. Find a new artist to love, past or present! Have fun!!
