Here's the original stock photo I tried to copy: http://fallowpenstock.deviantart.com...gh-2-280868710
It took wayyy to long to be a study, but I'll gain speed with practice.
Oh, and I'd be grateful for any useful tips about improving PS coloring, I have little to no clue about technique!
Then I drew my cup of tea while I waited for it to cool down.
Mainly I'm trying to do some stuff without the pencil sketch underneath, to force myself to see properly what I want to draw, since I won't be able to erase it. My eyes are not too happy, but I suppose they'll get used to it.
And that's it for now! I want to try and make at least one study per week, even when I work. Let's see if I can keep up with it.
