More weekend studies - female back

Today was a rather unproductive day, I must admit. I spent a great deal of time writing up some application essays for the Motivarti mentorship program. It's exhausting, but completely worth the effort. That being said, I did get in about 2 hours of studying in my sketchbook, and then another 2 hours digital painting. The bottom left image and top sketch were done from reference, where the bottom right was me trying to test what I had just learned. I find it helps to do pieces from my imagination right after a study so that I can get the confidence to paint it on my own in the future.
