Ruth - 1920's development sketch by MartynCollings
Ruth - 1920's development sketch
Currently really liking the 1920's aesthetic, so may do another swing dancing painting soon. In the meantime here's a 1920's sketch portrait based on my research of cloche hats and outfits.

Starting the painting soon and looking forwards to choosing the colours.

A big thank you to Senshi stock for the pose reference!!

Very happy to have finally finished this painting of a swing dancing couple!
The models were originally developed using Daz3D.

I'm into swing dancing and thought I might celebrate that with some sketches and possibly some paintings.
As an additional change to things, I've even tried a cartoon look for the dancers!

Now I need to work out how to do the painting... :)
