so when you made these, would you do a rough line sketch before, or do you just start blocking in colors right away? Just curious about your process.

I blocked in a rough shape in the dark midtone color of the final skin.  Then applied layers on top using clipping masks (look those up, they are brilliant) and added darks, lights, then details. :)

I don't know what class you're taking or teaching but I can already say I learned some stuff from this and will be incorporating an exercise like this into my own practice. Thanks for sharing.

How have you become so adept in color theory and use of color? I know you have many years of professional work behind you, but when you started out... did you just DO IT- did you paint with color theory in mind using unrealistic colors in the skin and atmosphere, or was this something you learned over time in studies of life drawings and paintings?

I see a lots of people use color theory in artwork that is less real and more stylized, but rarely do i see people who paint realism amplify color theory and contrasting colors in their work. These portraits in particular are stylized in a way, but you show much more structure of the human face. Most people blend it out too smooth to look real despite depth and lighting being real looking.
