Nice start and welcome. I've just browsed through your blog and I think you have a great thing going on already. I'll just stand by and watch what happens :)
iCi- Thank you :) This thread is meant to get me back into the spirit of regular studies. I'm going to try to make it daily or at least dump a few studies every other day.

Fish study from today, warm up for a piece im starting.

I found this image of a man walking up a dive line, and thought it was a cool image but it also matched the atmosphere and mood of a piece im starting soon. So I did this study mainly focusing on the mood of it.

Great sketchbook, man. You have a nice economy to your brushstrokes.
ndhill: Thanks dude. I remember checking your stuff out a little while ago, I really like your characters and their costumes, as well as those alien creatures!

LOTR screen cap study.
It was fun painting Gandalf's hair with that lighting.
I will probably do a few of these in the near future.
