Arrow Master Copies - Post Your Copies From The Great Masters! 2D/3D D/T DRWG/PTG/SCULPTURE

Guys,

Copying from the Old Masters is one of the best ways in which to learn how to draw, paint, and sculpt. I have returned continually not just to the same Old Master Artists, but to the same Drawings, and find that each time I discover new things which I had not before absorbed.

Please post your best efforts here!

1. Please post a link to / image of the ORIGINAL Master Work for comparison as well as YOUR copy!

2. Post the MEDIUM which you used and approximately how long you worked on your copy.

3. Post a bit about your WORK PROCESS.

Please limit the size to 600 pixel WIDTH (length please keep reasonable).

Thanks!

~Rebeccak

Greetings from Valencia (Spain)

I think 600px is good but i have some images over this size. I prefer to show the best resolution that i have in my computer.

these are the links:

Annibale Carraci 1597 Study of Paris

Michelangelo Study of Lybian
MIchelangelo, Two Figures (Red Chalk)
Pierre Paul Prud'hon, Study Man
Pierre Paul Prud'hon, Study Woman
Pierre Paul Prud'hon, Study Woman
Raphael, Nude Man with raised arms
Raphael, two men nudes
Peter Paul Rubens, Seated nude youth
Peter Paul Rubens, Study for a crucified man

I hope that it be useful

César.

Transfer,

Hello, and thank you for posting these links! However, what I would like to see posted in this thread is YOUR work ~ YOUR drawings which have been copied from the masters.

Having said that, it would be great to have a thread dedicated to Master Drawings Resources...

Thank you for your post!

kekata,

Thank you for your post!

Can you post a link to the original Master Painting? This would help us to see how you are seeing and interpreting the work of the Master.

Thanks!

Kekata,

Can you tell us a bit about which medium you are using, and your work process? Did you create a drawing first, or did you just begin to sketch in the painting medium which you used?

Thanks!

hm... this is oil painting, size is 124/82cm, i have some pictures of the stages of painting... i'll post them just right now... hope this will work

 
  07 July 2005
so, as you can see - i started with sketch (pencil) to be sure shat everything is corect(size, proportions, etc.) this is my first copy, so i was not so sure how to proceed and this is my own way... may be it will be easier to made some kind of colouring over the whole painting, but... i don't have so much time for experiments ...)) so, i just made the contours, and put the colours after this - it's easy, just take some time

It's been a while since I did this drawing so I don't remember exactly how long it took me, but I think it was something like an hour or two (drawn with pencil).



... based on Dante Gabriel Rosetti's "Beata Beatrix".
