Well, since watching this fascinating Youtube video earlier, I decided to experiment with using wooden artist’s mannequins in order to draw/paint a wider more realistic poses and proportions. I’m still experimenting with this at the moment and these are the first two paintings I made using these mannequins.
As usual, both of these paintings are released under a Creative Commmons BY-NC-ND licence.
As you can probably guess, “Zombie Manor” was fairly heavily inspired by classic 1990s horror videogames (I’d initially thought of making a painting of Rebecca Chambers from “Resident Evil”, but I felt like painting an original character instead).
On a technical level, this painting didn’t turn out as well as I hoped it would – for the simple reason that the character’s right arm looks slightly too long.
Although “Study Corner” didn’t turn out quite as well as I expected, I’m still fairly proud of it.
