I have the idea that painting images is a great way to figure out how people structure their painting. This method can also teach the person doing the study a great deal about how they themselves paint. This is my attempt I found this really gorgeous painting on conceptart.org while browsing through a sketchbook, unfortunately firefox crashed on me and I lost to whom the painting belonged to, but after a little searching I found out who the original belongs to.
Viktor Fetsch is his name and Oh Lawdy! is he amazing.
