Color Key Studies

I've been a fan of the Rurouni Kenshin series since I was in middle school, so I was pretty pumped when my sister recently sent me the newly released live action movie on blu-ray. Aside from being a pretty good adaptation of the original series, the film showcases great cinematography and color keying (not to mention fight choreography). So I decided to do some timed speed paintings from screenshots from the film to exercise my color skills. Each frame was painted in roughly 12 minutes.

On a side note, I would like to start maintaining the blog on a more regular basis with posts that readers will find helpful and relevant, in addition to the usual artwork updates. So, if you follow this blog and have any particular subjects you might like me to cover, feel free to leave any suggestions in the comments! Thanks!
