Here is another drawing from the mind. This one is a combo of a picture I made up in my head and details I memorized of light, colors, details, etc. from footage of my kids at a pool. I know it's not the best-- it's a departure from the usual photorealism, but I really want to challenge myself. There are SO many digital artists doing the photo real thing, but it's always off of photo references (including myself)-- seems less relevant-- less impressive or niche.
Also noticed a good amount of these guys are just tracing photos, while some are actually smudging over photos as well (photo-bashing-- which is an accepted from, so I am not knocking it).
So I want to try to explore new territory in attempts too memorize realism, and paint it-- make it up. It may take me a while, but Ill enjoy trying.
