These two days have been a blast. Just couldnt stop drawing. Now I started using a different aproach in PS. Im using the lasso tool to select areas, then I paint them with the brush. I got to be quite fast at it, being able to lay shapes down pretty quickly. I tried not to worry to much about getting the "right proportions or shape" in the begining, which led to nice accidental discoveries.
It also sometimes happens that you just dont know which way to go with a sketch, so also, instead of choosing one "path" , Id copy paste the image and work in different versions at the same time. It was a really refreshing aproach.
Sorry about the huge filesize on the GIFs, I thought it was the only one everyone with any browser could see them.
While I was drawing I started to think about artists that Id been checking up lately or that left some good impression on me. Artists or books that have influenced what I did these last days.
