Found Corel Painter Essentials 3 on a disc. Decided to try it out. It's jolly good fun!
This was the first attempt. And omg It's awful. I don't know how I even got that far with it...
...Eugh. From a random photo from google.
Then I liked the colours in this awesome photo, so had a faff with that.
Then a skull, referenced from a photo I think I found on Wiki. This is the best of the bunch, by far, but that's probably because I'm so used to drawing skulls.
And another awesome photo that i decided to try for perspective practise... And then ended up painting on.
