Next up, Master studies. 

Finished 50 comp studies. Trying to work my way though the colors next, but man, I am shit at color. 

Anyone have any advice?

Got some instructions from Dallas about properly studying for composition instead of tone. So I did a few more over my lunch break to see if I can get a better understanding for the assignment.

Finally finished up my weekly’s and got some time to start on the workshop assignments while my other computer is rendering.It’s amazing how bad my sense of tone is. I’ve got a long way to go.

I will cover a variety of topics that will help you with your work.
