Cute People

Two for the price of one! How about that? The top sketch is one I did earlier this year, in about April I think, and the second is one I did a couple of days ago of Lisbeth Salander, one of the main characters in the Millennium series by Steig Larsson. I watched the English version of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' a few weeks back and it was awesome, I'm currently reading the books and I want to watch the Swedish versions of the films because I adore Noomi Rapace.

Cave of the storm nymphs

It was my 21st birthday last Friday (woo!) and my parents bought me several large glossy art books, needless to say I nearly died when I opened them. One of them is Victorian Painting by Lionel Lambourne and its the most amazing book I've ever read in my life, its 500 pages of pure awesome. I found this painting in the 'Nudes and Classical influences' section and it blew my mind. It's called Cave of the Storm Nymphs by Sir Edward John Poynter, have a look at it, it's truly fantastic.

Anyway, I decided to do a study of the nymphs because I haven't done a speed paint or a study in a long while, I wasn't going to upload this but sencilsketches asked me to. So here you go WIP I of my Storm Nymph study.
