Photoshop exercises

Just several pics I drew to test some PS brushes and practice lighting.

Studies from photos:

Here I studied how colors of the shadows work depending on the surroundings. It's something I definitely have to work on more:/

Stuff from my desk:

I'm particularly fond of the goldish colours on the cat figurine, since picking appropriate colours is always hard for me.

And the last thing for today is a YT clip about gryphons:
An interesting thing about mythical creatures is how they are rooted in reality - gryphons being derived from protoceratops fossils, cyclops - from elephant (mammoth?) skulls and so on.
Anyway, the video features a lot of nice works from deviantART:)
