I've been studying portraits with some frequency, so to change the pace, here follows a quick study of the female anatomy.

I searched my reference folders and found a beautiful photograph shot by Amanda Com. I thought the pose and lighting was very interesting and decided to do this painting for study purposes.

It is always good time to do some nude paintings to improve my understanding of how light reacts in the human body. More to come shortly!

This study was based on a photographic reference. The painting was done in Photoshop CS4 with a Wacom Tablet Intuos4.

The photo belongs to Amanda Com :iconammanda: ([link]).

Hey thanks!

You have such a beautiful work and technique, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to do in PS with a bit of practice. Its just another tool really :)

This website ( [link] ) have some nice free tutorials, you should take a look!

Thank you so much for the complement and the link. I have bookmarked it and will learn how.
Do you have a favorite tablet? I need to get one.

Well if you're unsure if you're really going do practice digital painting constantly, I'd recommend that you seek the Wacom Bamboo tablet [link] (wacom is pretty much the industry standard in the tablet business), those are very cheap but work great for beginners. Wacom Stylus's don't require any kind of battery, its just that and your usb powered tablet.

If you feel like spending a little bit more that you can look for the Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. Its a little more expensive and its aimed for professionals, the pressure is very nice, the shortcut buttons, so on and so forth.

The only tablet better than this one is the Wacom Cintiq, where you can draw on screen, like an Ipad of some sort, but with the functionality of a true tablet for artists. Its very expensive though, I don't recommend it unless you're very very comfortable with digital painting :)

Wow, this is beautiful. So much detail and depth of the shading and muscles. I actually love the fact that she has a tan line because in most nude studies/paintings the tan lines are non-existant.
And her pose is so provocative yet simple and relaxed. Amazing work :)
