Last night I did a quick speedpaint self portrait, and the morning light today was so different that I gave it another shot just to compare. It was good practice! One thing that I think is really hard to avoid in digital painting is using too many colors. Having just started using watercolor this quarter, keeping a unified palette is something Lane taught me about, and it's much easier traditionally. All you have to do is work from light to dark and never clean your brush! In the digital world, you have literally every color ever - where do you even start? Laying out a palette would probably be good... something I'll definitely do next time.
