Let me be the first to say that your copies are simply AMAZING!

You HAVE to tell us about yourself and your training!

EDIT: What is AAC? San Fran school?


Nice work! It's amazing to see what everyone is posting!

Thanks for these great posts, guys! It's a huge thrill to see your work!!

thanks rebeccak... glad you like them (i hope some others do too... heh).

i spent approximately 6 hours on each, iirc...

about myself... i'm a student at Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

when i drew these i was in my second semester, so my training at that point was an analysis of form class and a figure drawing class. uhm... not much else to tell i'm afraid. i'm in the character animation program here and they do a lot of traditional training. lots of figure, clothed figure, heads/hands, more figure, anatomy, more anatomy, etc... really valuable stuff if your not too shortsighted to see that it really is usefull...

I am sure that MANY others will admire your beautiful drawings .

But hey, you cannot get off that easily! You must have had very good artistic training prior to college in order to attain such a high degree of proficiency and finish in your drawings ~ either that, or we just have to chalk it up to Incredible Talent!

Wow, I am truly impressed with your work. I hope that you continue to post your work and contribute to this forum as you progress through school!

Thank you for posting these!

Hi these are various master copies I completed during my drawing minor at school. I am unsure of some of the artists and I do not have reference of the originals. I know that one of them is Anthony Ryder...

Well I've been meaning to try out painting for some time now but I've mostly kept to black and white sketches in the past. I feel I don't really know my way around colour. Course the best way to fix that is to dive in... so one of these days I will get around to it. Don't think I'll revisit this piece though.

These are beautiful! Particularly the first one ~ I love that super-rendered classical style, it's amazing!

I don't know if mimicking a photo is acceptable or not.
but this is my work, inspired by enayla photo. (Linda Bergkvist)
This is her photo :
And this is my work with Photoshop around 5 hour :
(done using grid help method)

And this is my step by step work :

AWESOME, just AWESOME ~ thank you for posting this! Let me ask, though ~ was any tracing involved? I'm not sure it matters to me, but I wanted to ask

My version of "Spring Tonic", Inspired by Rockwell :P

Hey guys,

Here's a painting I did of one of my favorite artists' works, Norman Rockwell.
I chose to charicaturize the characters. I copied it from one of Rockwell's books.
Its done with gouache on watercolor paper (its tiny, about 8 x 5 1/2). Took me about a day.
I loved painting this coz I learned alot from it. Rockwell is just the greatest.

c&c are more than welcome.


some close ups:

And here is the original painting:
(sorry, this verion doesn't do the painting justice)

I know Norman fell out of favor for a while, but I've always found an honest charm in his work, not to mention his gift as a draftsman and painter. What you've done with this is just charming as all get out, and with gouache? I have a cheapo set of gouache and I so want to learn the medium. I just have no idea where to begin.

I apparently misunderstood the thread thinking it was drawing. I'm excited to do a painting now.. thanks for the inspiration!

rebeccak, thanks again... you're making me blush...

and no, no training before school... i guess it comes kinda natural? idunno...

i'll definately submit more when i have the time to photograph some more work properly, as most of it is way too big for the scanner. although, hand drawn animation this semester prevents me from doing much else.

all the rest of the work in this thread is also very impressive. Kei Acedera, i love how you've adapted a master work into your own style... specially using guache. *shudder*
