long time no post! i went on vacation in june, and upon my return started working on an intensive freelance project with a tight deadline. all other free time was spent watching one of the best shows i’ve ever had the pleasure to watch: battlestar galactica. so i managed to find a few minutes free here and there to draw my three favorite characters from that show :) just started season 4! so sad that i have only this season left :’(
will be posting more starting next week!

last weekend i visited the dordrechts museum and saw this beautiful painting by Ary Scheffer, a dude with the same hometown as me. i took a quick snapshot with my phone and decided to do a palette study based on that snapshot. it isn’t meant to be a one-on-one reproduction but just an exploration of the skintones mostly!
