Caricature of the wonderful Maya Angelou. Loved capturing and painting her smile on this one.
Here's a screenshot of the sketching stage. You can see my workflow and reference pic.

Below is a speed painting of this drawing...
Had a lot of fun painting this one. Came out just as I envisioned (which is rare).

This painting is for the continuation of honor to the contributions of amazing African Americans to our history. I present a portraiture of William Edward Burghardt (W.E.B.) Dubois

Here's the sketch I started with. I find doing these kind of "underpainting" sketches allows me to see what needs to be changed before I paint. No guarantees nothing in the final painting will change but sketching this way definitely helped me speed up my painting process. Look forward to seeing more of these type of sketches from me
