First full-fledged job...

A friend of mine has decided to buy a painting, oddly enough, a replica or continuation of a previous piece..

Here are the some preliminary pieces

(time: aprox 1 hour total)
I'll continue to post its progress. I'm attempting a few different thing with this piece.

- I bought a reference book that has figures and poses that should help a bit with anatomy

- I going to test out an acrylic retarder which should help slow the drying process for smoother blending.

Let me hear your thoughts.
