Oil Painting Again . . .

I've started trying to get back on track with my painting again; I did a quick one a while ago that was horrid, and it made me lose all motivation (easy to do when you've got a massive backlog of other cool stuff to get started on!). But I finally made myself pick up the brushes and try and get back into it. Here are a couple of pics, both done from photo reference.
This first one is just a warmup/practice done over a couple of days:

This one is a still unfinished attempt to get more realistic colours going on rather than the monotone approach I'd been doing previously. I'll post up the finished version when it's done.


Hope you like!

I love your drawings, sorry for the bad writing of the language, I can not speak at least write in English, then with the help of an online translator I'm trying to pass what I feel to see your drawings. I am Brazilian, 18, ​​and fell in love with this universe comes out of your mind. Also design, but compared to yours, mine are drawings of a child. I love the way that you portray women, the costumes are very perfect. I follow your blog and saw that some people were saying fizendo criticism where you do "apology "for the rape, sexual violence, etc.. I think this very old-fashioned kind of person who flees his or desires (laugh when you said that the sexually frustrated). I ask you to not stop making art, I always followed. Congratulations! (my favorite design and Nina Kate's very beautiful!)
