Someone, made me aware of Sasha Beliaev fairly recently and fuck me, that dude is something else. So much so that i just had to dedicate a more extensive study to one of his pictures. My biggest takeaway being that his wrist by now must be just one solid block of fused bone...I'm sure he's got some tricks up his sleeve to make it easier that i couldn't figure out, but ...jeez. Decided to cut short some areas towards the end...
Also fun? Inserting your character into your studies :B Makes them much more interesting because drawing your own character is always fun and gives you an opportunity to try and emulate in a more freeform way rather than just doing a complete 1:1 copy.
Will also most likely be moved to scraps later since it's not really representative of my own work. But i felt it was worth sharing despite that.
