Studies as Always...

 Facial Plane Study

Title:  Facial Plane Study
Date: December 17, 2012
Medium: Photoshop

Notes:  This was an attempt to take things that I learned from this semester and start to apply it to all my outside work. I think this is turning out pretty well so far... I might keep going, I might start a new one. Who knows? Either way, I think this method works interestingly, plus I finally get to bring back my contour drawing. YAY!!

 Grid Reproduction

Title:  Grid Reproduction
Date: November 12 - 19, 2012
Medium: Black Ink and Stick, White Acrylic
Scale: 22" x 30"

Notes:  Firstly, we had to create one mark (in my case it was that cross pattern) and then lay in highlights and low-lights according that that single mark. Secondly, we had to use a master (in this case William Whitaker) and try to reproduce it according to a grid. It is extremely difficult at times to FORCE a piece to work on a grid, but this was my finished result.

Applied Cezanne Study

Title:  Applied Cezanne Study
Date: December 3, 2012
Medium: Charcoal, Chalk, White Acrylic
Scale: 22" x 30"

Notes:  Working from observation, I was to create a piece that emphasized the light and shadow according to how Cezanne would have. Very loose gestural line-marks, large strokes, and paying close attention to the structure were of the greatest import during this piece. I am glad that my subject was so willing to sit there during the creation of this (Thank you madam!!!).

This and many more on mah blog!

lunar mystic WIP

First one where I'm at, second one just to show the general idea of the comp, clothes are not gonna look like tattered clothes in the end and I'll prolly add a warm and soft back candlelight to contrast with the blueish moonlight
