I haven’t done one of these in a loooong time. My reference was my reflection against a window with a screen behind it at night– the main light source was my monitor, and as I worked the colors shifted, changing the color of light on my face… This went into a loop until things refined themselves out. I really enjoy working with ambiguous live reference! I’d like to try a low-light life drawing workshop where the artists can barely see the models or their paper. Hmmmm!
Painted this poster for the upcoming Digital Arts & Tech Expo. C.A.T. will be there! Typography credit goes to Dimitri.
Modeling my 2D film character for kicks! No poncho yet, but eventually he’ll get one.
Daguerreotypes are so cool. If you get a chance to see one in real life, you can see how the silver is on a plate distinctly above the background– it’s like you got different values developed on different layers. So cool! Colors were painted on by hand.
