Well, after succumbing to a bit of peer pressure, I've decided to post my own Anatomy Thread ~ lol, I was starting to feel like a total hypocrite for encouraging others to do so, but not doing so myself, so here t'is. :)

Many of these pieces are relatively old and a majority of my work consists of copies done from Master Works ~ Drawings and Paintings.

My favorite artists to copy / from which to learn are: Michelangelo & Rubens in the old school department, and Odd Nerdrum in the contemporary department. I owe a lot of what I 'know' to the inimitable examples set by these artists. I figure, even if I catch a bit of what they were on to, I am in better shape than just on my own.

I'm hoping that this thread acts as a bit of a clearinghouse for me. I frankly have not done a ton of my own personal work since starting the Anatomy Forum, though I have done much more in the way of drawing and painting than I otherwise would, through critiquing and assessing others' work, a process which I immensely enjoy. :) It's an unparalleled experience to be able to share my particular passions and interests with a great group of people here who happen to be interested in the same things.

Alrighty ~ enjoy! You're comment & crits are always welcome. :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Thank you! :) Eek! Now I'm accountable! :D

Slux,

Thank you! Lol...you're right. ;) Well, hopefully I'll get the chance after the Workshop. Seeing everyone's cool work is almost as fun though! :)

Elsie,

Thanks so much! Nice to see you on the forum ~ I have to say, your old avatar + the Mwe he he sometimes made me lol! :scream: Hmm...any chance of seeing your work on the forum soon? :)

raptor|3D,

Thanks a lot! :) I love landscapes ~ really kind of miss doing them. They give you lots of freedom to experiment stylistically without worrying about 'messing up' a figure or a pose. It's definitely nice to do a freeform landscape every now and then, particularly if you've been doing something more rendered. :)

Thanks guys. :)

Hehe, you think I should bring back Boo? I certainly hope I'll have something postworthy soon now that I've got my new computer back...just everything seems to have leaked out of my head in the three month absence >_< nooo!

Am honestly very inspired by those collages though...ordering a new corset with my overdraft so once I've got that I might be able to do reference pics for some sort of victorian piece...Impressive pen work on the first page too by the way.

Hmm, not sure if these are even worth posting

hng, please don't say things like that or I run the risk of taking that seriously and then I would not be able to post anything for such a long time that by then we will have brain-to-forum-interfaces...

The unerring smoothness with which you make use of *seemingly* aimless strokes to establish things like the hand in the first sketch is enough to intimidate people like me.

I think I will have to go and do more of the tutorials you posted. Would be such a waste to not make use of that information... if it is bound to get me anywhere near this craftmanship.

ah, did I mention I *do* like the sketches? Here's some forumspeak to clarifiy matters:

Hi rebeccak

I'm very impressed by how you get your strokes to flow so gracefully in all directions, I find it very unnatural to stroke in some directions especially right from left, I truly admire you for your ability draw curves that look so natural.

just out of curiosity do you draw whit your shoulder, wrist or fingers?

keep it up -- David René.

Rebeccak
11-20-2005, 07:03 PM
David,

Thanks for your nice comments! :) When drawing traditionally / large format, I definitely use my shoulder more. When using a wacom, definitely more of a wrist / finger thing. :)

Very powerfull! I like the way you emphasize the underlying bone structure.

May I ask on what size newsprint you work? Maybe a silly question, but here in the Netherlands "newsprint" doesn't come in small sizes. They are huge A1 or A2 sheets, and if you want them smaller, artshops have an industrial papercutter as a service.

Also the reference photo's are excellent. It shows plenty of muscle without being over inflated like bodybuilders. Now if only ice speedskaters didn't have to wear insulating bodysuits....:)

Rebeccak
11-25-2005, 07:02 PM
Margie,

Thanks!! I use 18" x 24" newsprint, like the kind pictured here:

http://www.dickblick.com/zz103/11/

I don't care about the brand, I just look for the cheapest. I prefer smooth to rough, but I can't seem to find it anymore (at least in the stores). I have a hard time fitting a full figure on even that size, though, as I like to draw large ~ it enables me to get detail, as that's what I tend to focus on to a degree. I have a giant size newsprint pad, like the kind used for class demos, but it's pretty unwieldy, so I stick with the 18" x 24" generally. It's the kind I always used in school.

I typically use a sketch board:
http://www.dickblick.com/zz229/45/

on a lightweight easel similar to this one:

Rebeccak
11-25-2005, 10:08 PM
@Slux,

Thanks!! It's great practice for me...funny, I never time myself on master copies, so doing these drawings in that same style for me is pretty liberating...I like that I don't have to labor forever over these, usually to the point of ruining them. :) I've gotten wise to the fact that when I think I should stop on a drawing, I should actually stop. There's a certain point, particularly in traditional drawings, where the media / relationships you've set up in your particular piece just can't be pushed any further before becoming mush. I've learned to respect that line! :)

@"Peter", :scream:

30 minutes. ;) Don't give me more credit than I deserve. Plus, you know, that's 30 minutes +

Thomasphoenix,

Thanks!! :) Heh, it's funny, sometimes your first tries are your best ~ I tend to think of it as trusting your first instincts, even if it means closing your eyes to draw your impression of what you've seen. Scary, but sometimes this works! :)

Cheers,

My usual faves including the Great Masters like Michelangelo,Leonardo,and modern day Greats like Hogarth and Bridgman are their Fiery Sketches and not often the painstakingly detailed work(some detailed works have the same spontaneity too but that's rare) check out "Arcane eye of Hogarth", detailing has its uses, but usually unless its done spontaneously ,things can get a wee bit contrived and hard(stiff).My take is once the mind starts gettin too logical about it things get a bit stiff:),the logic is best left to subconscious.

Rebeccak
11-26-2005, 04:33 PM
You know, I had Burne Hogarth as a teacher, and I had never heard of this book!

The Arcane Eye of Hogarth (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1560970871/002-6733442-6091234?v=glance&n=283155&n=507846&s=books&v=glance) ~ thanks! :thumbsup: I will definitely have to put that on my Christmas list and check it out. Hogarth was a great teacher who could bust out a drawing in an instant ~ I definitely like the combination of his and Bridgeman's work. Though I would not want to draw like Hogarth myself, I have learned just tons from him, and have done many copies of his work, which has helped me to improve tremendously. I agree with you, often my best sketches are the ones done in 5 minutes, when you truly must rely on instinct, reaction, and your subconscious thoughts about the pose. The 15 Minute Sketchathon (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=295498) (which I would love to see you participate in!) is great for just that reason ~ forces me to work fast / not labor over my drawings. :) Of course, I cheat, and go for multiple 15 minute sessions. :D (Of course, I note that when I do). ;)

Yep, my faves are Michelangelo, Pontormo, and Rubens. Painting~wise, I lean toward more expressionistic masters such as Lucian Freud and the somewhat hard to categorize Odd Nerdrum. Do you do any traditional or digital painting? I would love to see that work. Clearly you have a love for drawing ~ that's fantastic to see! :)

I also love the three Tiepolos ~ but not to copy. In terms of copying master works, I find Michelangelo and Rubens (for me) to be the best. Michelangelo is so clear, and a completely impossible act to follow, and Rubens, to me, makes Michelangelo more accessible.

Cheers,

BURNE HOGARTH! THE BURNE HOGARTH!

You are one lucky Lady Rebecca!

I studied from Burne Hogarth for the best part of two years 12/7 , I mean All Hogarth and nuthin else!(about 12 yrs ago)You could say Hogarth was my Foundation in Drawing! I owe a TON to Him!And u know ppl used to make fun of me for studying frm him, but I used to tell them that he's the most terrific teacher ever, He was able to teach a guy a few thousand miles away frm him with seven books!Better than any live teacher ever could!And believe me his words taught me thousand times more than his Drawings!literally Freed my mind!

What can I say!A great honour it is that im able to talk to someone who stood on the same ground as Hogarth and shared the same air!

Check out the reviews ive done fr his books on amazon.com!(Im very defensive about hogarth:))

I am good with light and shade and color but am not into traditional painting.To me the pencil and the paper are the begining and the end, the area where I really enjoy my work,and I dont have to think or stop,even to sharpen the pencil,I use mechanical pencils, tho I do paint digitally.
And My work is in CG Animation on both the tech and Art side.(Drawing is all im able to do after work)
Im waiting fr my wacom tablet to start off with the sketchathon!shuld be another three days or so.Or ill just sit in frnt of the monitor and burn paper!:)

Rebeccak
11-26-2005, 05:00 PM
LOL!!! :scream: I have never seen someone more excited with the exception of a kid on the occasion of his first Christmas! :scream:

I was really fortunate, I had one of his last (full) classes before he died. He had one more class after mine, during which I believe he died (in Paris, I believe). He was an incredible teacher with an enormous personality ~ you could 'sense' him coming down the hall, lol! :)

I became overwhelmed with how much I was learning in school at one point, and took a trimester off to just copy from his books and try to absorb what I'd learned from him and from my other teachers. Hehe, I know that people criticize his work, but who the hell cares? The purpose is not to draw like him exactly, but no one has more of a systemmatic approach to the figure as he does. His books / and teaching have been invaluable to me. :)

I think it's cool that someone from halfway around the world has gained so much from his books ~ truly they're a worldwide phenomenon! I was truly saddened by his death, he used to eat lunch with us (or rather, us with him) :) and he used to tell us all how stupid we were and how little we knew about the world ~ it was a blast! :scream: We just liked being in his presence. :)

At any rate, it's cool to see someone so influenced by his work! I'm sure it would have made him smile. :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Oh,I had nursed hopes of one day meeting him (Hogarth)in the U.S. but by the time I grew up he was gone:sad:.

And the other Teacher I regarded very very highly was Robert Beverly Hale.Boy was his writing inspirational or what, it still is :).

And the man whom I studied the Longest was Michelangelo,5 years almost.Was the toughest phase of learning bcuz its difficult to get a lot of Authentic stuff in books(drawings),and its a tuff task to study from Michelangelo as all who have tried will know, lot of work that appears in many reputed books under his name is not geniune!And I had to rely on a fictional biography to inspire me"Agony and the Ecstasy"!

Of course I have studied extensively the works of Leonardo,Rubens, Pontormo,Titian,Giovanni Battista Tiepolo,Annibale Caracci,Honore Daumier,Auguste Rodin,John Sargeant,George Bridgman,Victor Perard, and contemporary artists like John Raynes and Glen Vilppu and from an Animation perspective
Norman Rockwell and Milt Kahl.and many more that im not able to remember rt now,(ill put up a list one of these days)

Too bad most of these people are no longer there.

And like u very rightly said, Hogarth never asked in his book for anyone to become clones of his.Rather he just used his invention to make a lot of solid points.

I think Lot of ppl need to re-look Hogarths work and "READ" it before they try to pull him down!I have met a few in my life!And by God I changed most of them:D!

hey rebecca,

just browsing your drawings and it seems that you do mostly studies of body segments. You said you liked to work big, is there a compositional reason behind doing mostly studies or just a preference?

Rebeccak
11-26-2005, 11:20 PM
@ storyForge,

A very valid point, my friend! ;) I LOVE to do detail, and as such, tend to run out of time / focus / energy when I go for a full figure. But you're right, I need to focus on the full enchilada more often. It's just that, when I do, I can't focus on details, and after a while, I lose interest. So, to ensure that I keep drawing, I tend to do what I like to do. ;)

Spent 15 more minutes on this one ~ am happier with it now...

Hey Rebecca!
I dig whatcha done doin' with those 15 minute sketchathon images! That first study of the modern dancer pose in greenish outfit - great starting point! At first glance I was like 'wow!' but as I viewed it more carefully with the reference image, I was concerned that your dancer was going to fall over due to a different center of gravity. :)
As you warmed up in your other pieces you show serious control over placement of all the right things - very gestural and dynamic! I love em!
That one torso shot you did that you showed process on and continued to work on - well, albeit a beaut, my thought is that it was perfect after the first 15 minutes. You captured the moment, tension, and loveliness the form brings with it. I'm referrin' to this one:

@Dave,

Thanks a lot!! :) Yep, that's why I encourage everyone else to do fast studies ~ they really increase your accuracy, often far more than do longer studies. Hope you can post in the 15 MS if you get the chance! It's a blast, lots of good work going on there. Wish I had more time to do it! :)

I'm excited, they've asked me to do another CGWorkshop in February! Will be revamping the existing one to make it more dynamic. :) Or possibly even remixing it completely per Mike's proposal for DOTP II. :D

I think it would be great, if you did a study of all the figures in the Medici tomb,and then
combine them into one painting, useing the layers and directional spotl lights in painter
similer to what I did in combining figures for your work shop. Your style, as of lately has
a great dreamy vaporious feel to it, dark, strong and moody,would really do a painting
of that tomb justice I THINK...Just another vision I had while admirering that last figure
you posted here... Great mood and feeling in that one.
I'm very impressed by your style, and also very inspired by it... SERIOUSLY...:thumbsup:

I think that all that I'll have time to do are the two main figures, and I probably won't even be able to finish those ~ with the CGWorkshop starting up Feb. 10th, I'm going to be pretty busy, though of course always checking in on the forums. ;)

I think it's always best to work a composition as a whole, but I knew I just wouldn't have time to do the whole thing ~ so I went for the two foreground figures, and will hopefully be able to finish this at a later date. :)

EDIT: Someone else recently had the same problem with censored images (this person lives in the UAE):

But .. i think it has the same thing my brushes have - the blur... Do you use the smudge tool a lot?.. or is it just the brush.. Mine comes blury, but doesn't have the same smoothness... :(
Do you have pencil work too? You haven't shown something like that in a wile...

Sorry for being so late in replying, it seems I'm not the best at keeping my own thread up to date :D ~

Okay, thanks to zhuzhu, I had a major revelation and realized that I wasn't approaching digital painting in a way that I was enjoying. So taking a page from his amazing master copies, I decided to do a mini master copy of an artist whose work I really love, Odd Nerdrum ~ not really finished yet, and this was relatively quick, but I enjoyed doing this:

Icey, I used both PS and Painter, and in PS, just used one of the dry media brushes ~ in Painter, I used the oil brushes and some of the blenders (Just add water blender).

For adding texture, see this tutorial by Linda:

Well, after succumbing to a bit of peer pressure, I've decided to post my own Anatomy Thread ~ lol, I was starting to feel like a total hypocrite for encouraging others to do so, but not doing so myself, so here t'is. :)

Many of these pieces are relatively old and a majority of my work consists of copies done from Master Works ~ Drawings and Paintings.

My favorite artists to copy / from which to learn are: Michelangelo & Rubens in the old school department, and Odd Nerdrum in the contemporary department. I owe a lot of what I 'know' to the inimitable examples set by these artists. I figure, even if I catch a bit of what they were on to, I am in better shape than just on my own.

I'm hoping that this thread acts as a bit of a clearinghouse for me. I frankly have not done a ton of my own personal work since starting the Anatomy Forum, though I have done much more in the way of drawing and painting than I otherwise would, through critiquing and assessing others' work, a process which I immensely enjoy. :) It's an unparalleled experience to be able to share my particular passions and interests with a great group of people here who happen to be interested in the same things.

Alrighty ~ enjoy! You're comment & crits are always welcome. :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hey Rebecca! how's things? thought I drop by and say hello. It's been a while hasn't it? you certainly still going very strong with your work, love the last one, very painterly. It's so hard to capture that look in PS. Also good to see you experimenting with other brushes, not that soft edge is bad or anything but good nonetheless. I think if you made the shadow side a little cooler and lighter you could throw in more details. :P it's looking awsome btw.

Hope you are doing well, cheers,

Very nice Rebecca. There is so detail and information there. Whatmedium do you use and your preference? I myself use large white bond paper and Nupastels. Sometimes I use compress charcoal or charcoal pencil.

Cujo03, thanks! I used General's 6B Charcoal and newsprint, and the occasional ballpoint pen, and that's about it. :)

Wow. These are amazing. There is something so flowing in your charcoal strokes, it's so natural and your shading is unbelievable. I love how you get into the details and musculature... and you have a damn good eye, because there isn't a single mistake in proportion anywhere that I could see, they all looked amazing. Thanks for sharing :)

Youre contours are amazing...I like the hogarth inspired arrows. Its really helpful to see how those lines flow over the form.

Have you done any head studies using the planes as a guide? Im sure youve memorized them by now but I was wondering if you had any on hand to show.

Hi Rebecca, I've peeked in here on occasion before, but I thought I'd best drop a comment this time. Your work is really an inspiration, your anatomy studies propell me to keep on with my own, even when I'd rather be doodling some flight of fancy. Those ballpoint sketches are utterly amazing, I've always been in awe of those who work in a non-erasable media, as while I dont use mine that much the thought of not having scares the proverbial pants off me. And the Nerdrum copies have really caught my attention, so I shall be off to find his work when I get a moment, I think of all the colour work you've done, those are some of the best, they have a lovely freeness of stroke, it shows that you enjoyed painting them.

Update, not a big one, but some work on lightening the background, adjusting the face and the texture, and ultimately enlarged and widened the head a bit:

Killer update Rebecca. Was wondering (dunno if i missed it) whether this one will be coloured? Colour added alot to the original for me, but your greyscale solution is just as awesome really - adds something very special. Was hoping to join this OFDW but I simply won't have time - looking forward to the next round then.

You certainly are in the best of the bestē folder on my computer. Killer work - thanx for sharing.

cheers
