A bunch of sketches done on the same page of yellowy-brown color in Painter. It was just, the last canvas color I used apparently. Started just trying to remind myself of more realistic facial structure - I am still really bad at eyes.

And a thumbnail that was original for a Red Coat girl picture for a theme 'hidden garden'. But its clearly gone somewhere else instead.
Then I just went and fooled around with clear simple shapes of flat color, which is something I've always been not that good at. I rely very heavily on outlines most of the time, so you know, practice.

The robots will be back next time. And someday maybe I'll finish something beyond the level of 'sketch'...someday...

Because I have nothing new finished, and am still a bit exhausted from the whirlwind that became of last month here's a bit of process. Color studies, thumbnails, sketches and bits. I usually do a fair number of such things before I do something complicated. These are prep for some more 'red coat girl' images. The top study is pretty close to the feel I want with the colors and light I think.

Look its NOT ROBOTS!
