Day 20: Trying Monalisa

Me and painter is an unstable pair. Now I hate it. This one was started with painter, and I scrapped everything i did there but the line work. So i'm back to photoshop.  I used the monalisa as reference for the lighting, and the eyes accidentally became similar to it (i think).

I started this project hoping to find my own style in painting but now, in my 20th day i find that i have overreached. I skipped the fundamentals and because of that i think my past efforts are just that - efforts. I have not improved nor have i gotten any sense of my style. With that said, i'm going to start studying - lines, anatomy, color theory, composition, etc.  That first and hopefully with time, i'll get my style down.  art can be so frustrating.
