Head painted like a skull out of an anatomy textbook!

Makeup artist Lisa Berczel, aka Battledress, has painted this man’s head that like a medical illustration of a skull.

He seemed pretty comfortable in this pose. Tried a different perspective this time. As an after thought this painting probably needs a bit more on the bottom right.

Not happy with this. Figure painting is much harder than figure drawing, from life, that is. Blah.

Last of the figure painting series. Tried using some hot temperature colors. The reflection doesn't quite read as a reflection. But not too worried about it. The composition worked out I think k beside the left side of the painting.

Oh and she was holding a long stick/rod which I never put in Lol

Thank you +Mary Schiros! It almost feels like two figures contemplating something similar yet never talking to each other about it ;)

The poor woman seems a bit creeped out by the stranger wanting to walk/peek in? The shadows, I thought were quite interesting too, while painting this one.

This maybe a good option for individual artists who ship stuff in San Francisco?

Story

Aspiring Artist and Biologist
Introduction
I paint in oils or acrylic or draw in charcoal. A hobbyist/amateur artist and a research biologist by profession. The times when I paint/draw is when I am totally alive. I can never feel the time fly by. The mixing of colors, the spread of charcoal, lights and darks, lines and forms, contrast and compositions - I am just so absorbed in it all! Its magical really how things come together and voila! Even in 2D there is depth, space, and life!

Its been my dream to combine biology and art and make a career out of it. Medical Illustration is just that! Will get there one day hopefully. Dreaming big and out of the box! I would love to get in touch with professional medical illustrators and get their insight.

Otherwise, non-religious, agnostic but spiritual.

Motto: "Just being".
