Screenshot study: Pan’s Labyrinth

Ugh, I love this movie. Did one of Ofelia last week, but then I had to get my relocation going and things got kind of busy. The Ofelia capture grew on me so much that I noodled around on it for 2 more hours (bottom thumbnail)?

Picked it up again today and limited myself to 15 minutes like a good girl (…notice how simple these three screencaps are. Hah!). Also tried using a square brush for the top two which ended up looking unexpectedly soft. Probably bad settings.

Another lag period between exercises. I’ve been thinking I should aim to do a different type of painting exercise a day, 2-3 days a week. Fridays and Saturdays are reserved for doing nothing/everything, and Sundays and Mondays are dedicated to WoW raiding, so that leaves exactly 3 days! (It’s like I planned it all out beforehand!) Tuesdays will be cinematic screenshot studies, Wednesdays will be still lifes, and Thursdays will be “use my imagination” …or cop-out day.

I did a google search for other (better) people who do the same sort of exercise to see their approach and found this tutorial. …Yea, that guy’s pretty good.
