Daily Doodle - 10-31-14

 

I’ve been wanting to practice backgrounds lately so I pulled out some inspirational shots I found on tumblr. I was going to try painting in color but decided it was best to figure out values before I jump into anything else. I really love value drawing with charcoal but here I’ve yet to feel comfortable with the brush I’m using.┬áThe pencil brush I tend to use is good for outlining but rendering like this is a different animal. Thinking I should get comfortable with studies like these and then move on to using them for underpaintings
