The Daily Yupari | BUILDING FORMS – Underpainting Pt 2

Today we will be finishing up the underpainting for the portrait. The goal is to set ourselves up for the next stage: the first color pass. What we want out of this underpainting is to make sure the drawing and values are well established. By well established I mean that the outlines and tones convey form convincingly.

Tomorrow we will begin the first color pass!
