Hey there guys! Here is the Sam Final. 18x24 Oil on Board 130 min. Worked off of a toned board this time and actually added some original elements. Working from a great portrait painting book that is helping with my color understanding. Also, it is worth pointing out, that these are done in 2 sessions. Sam was 50 min and 60min. respectively. I drop in the traditional figure study layer first and then come back within 48 hours and pop out the deeps and highs. This helps keep the painting from being muddy and allows me a second dive.

And here is the Gimli study. I had a lot of fun with this one and it took no time at all. FYI, I finally started an ebay store: http://stores.ebay.com/Grant-Cooley-Studios . I am selling a lot of my originals in order to buy a house for me and my daughters. Take advantage of some of these great deals while I still have the pieces!
