>Obama Test Portrait

>
As an artist my two mediums of choice are oil painting and digital illustration. I’ve been on the fence about how to reconcile these two very different approaches, but after finally getting a wacom tablet of my own I decided to try to do a digital illustration with the same approach I usually take when painting. I also incorporated some of the elements from my pastel work in figure drawing where I used a wide selection of unusual colors (such as the oranges and greens) to help flesh out the skin tones. I wanted to do a portrait to test this new approach and decided to tackle Obama. There was no preliminary work, I just jumped right in with the tablet and I think from the finished product this is definitely a sign of good things to come.
