I saw the great Albert Epshteyn, my old figure drawing teacher, on my way to figure drawing on Tuesday. He smiled when I told him that I was going to draw. The extra lighting effects I put on at the end to give it a more “finished” feel. Painted in photoshop.
Since the sessions have consistently been at 2 hours instead of 3, we opted for 2 long poses (2x 20min) and 1x 25min, after the 10 gestures. I’ve been doing a lot of sketchbook art for #inktober but I have been posting those to twitter and facebook. I might compile them and share them here later on.
Late to update this week. Model was a no-show so Larry, the legend himself, modeled for us. For the color portion, I was experimenting with using photo-adjustment layers to paint. There are some cool effects but it definitely is restrictive; definitely more additive in color than normal digital painting; more akin to marker or watercolors layering.
Attendance continues to be low. Just me, and the two elders. They said they’d continue till the group was out of money to pay the model. We have been consistently at 2hrs instead of the original 3hrs in order to save money.
I tried to compress values in this session.
