progress pic


Here's a progress of a new piece I'm working on. You can also see a new video of the drawing here

I zoomed in a bit but without a camera man to follow my jumping around the piece I'm at times working off screen. But I think you can get the basic idea of what's going on.

Love this!
The classic grace of her hand reminds me of that of Leonardo's famous Miss Lisa. Channeling the old masters?

Hey, got a question. Did you print out your photoref on a home printer? Great quality, gotta say...I struggle with taking good reference pictures something fierce.

Yes, I use a home printer. It was about $99 but the ink... ugh! Cartridge World recycles ink cases and sells them for about half the price. I print on photo supreme double sided matte paper(off brand). It's cheaper than gloss and there's no glare when it's on my desk. Printing at home also allows you to manipulate the image in photoshop. Whether you're piecing something together or changing the color or using it in a more refined colorcomp mock up.

With digital cameras photo ref is a lot easier than it used to be. Make sure you have good lighting or try to take photos during the right time of the day.

Thanks! I suspect if I use photographic paper, that will help a great deal with clarity. Unless, of course, our printer is so old it defies all attempts at quality...*grumble grumble*

also, the double sided matte is cheap AND if you want you could print on both sides. I'm all about saving moolah where I can:) Makes being an artist a little bit easier.

Never occurred to you to use both sides...much win!
