I decided to stop working on that picture with the kid and the synchronized swimmer, I was not happy with the way it was going. I am still going to do something with the character but it is not going to be that.
I am also going to start doing quick digital paintings to learn more about form and a bunch of other things. A good amount of them will be referenced from pictures. This is the first one I did

This is the progress for the illustration with the kid. I am not happy with the composition right now. It looks too empty but I am not sure what else to add to the setting, I am going to add the swimmer but I want something else to be there.
More progress on this. The picture I am referencing has blonde and black hair but I don't like it so I am going to make it red and brown.
When I finished the guy, I realized that the space around it was pretty empty so I added the colored lights

I am working on choosing how I am going to color the illustration. I like the bottom three but I think I am going to go with the second to the right on the bottom row.
Here are some sketches that I did trying to explore the character a little more (minus the bald guy)
I finished up the picture I was working on.
Here is progress on this image. I am not too happy with the nose and lips so I will change those as I continue to work on it

Here is Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender, one of my favorite cartoons of all time! This was based off of a picture. In the beginning of this I was trying to layer on a bunch of cool colors but then it wasn't saturated enough nor had enough variety in value, but I changed it and now I am happy with it.
