A Paintover

This week I digitally painted over one of my pastel drawings that I did at community college over a year ago. I wasn't happy with the piece originally and I figured it would be a good exercise to fix it up. Also, it would be fun to easily see an improvement in my skills.
 Above is the repaint and below is the original pastel drawing.

I did this to play around with color more, too.

Vietnam Color Studies

I'm trying to get better with color, so I did these two sketches from black and white reference photos and tried to come up with colors on my own. It wasn't working out too well so I ended up using a color photo as a guide. I'm happy with the way they turned out, but I think I need to have some patience and practice painting figures.

I finally started messing around with some textured brushes and did these quick paintings. The first one is from imagination and the bottom two are from photos.
