felt i didn't do an adequate job of capturing Bridges in the previous post, so i took another stab at it. i like it a whole lot more, i noticed that when i do quick sketches like my last post i never really look much at the reference and go by memory. this only really works if your first impressions of the face were dead on, if not it doesn't turn out so well. not to mention you miss the small stuff that really punches up the unique quality of the face.
but this time around i made sure to take a closer look at my reference, and sweat the small stuff. i'm working up to a finished painting of the characters from this movie but i'm taking small steps for now as i've got a lot of work to do. for now i hope you can settle for this, slapped some colors on so it didn't look so bland.
