Corvax,

This is really becoming an exceptional piece. The mood of the model is nearly palpable ~ excellent job with really bringing this pose to life!

Will you be working on the figure in it's entirety, or cropping it as a portrait? I think the portrait is quite strong ~ it's of course up to you.

Great work so far ~ I recommend saving this version, then creating a copy, and seeing how far in terms of rendering you can push the copy without losing the liveliness of the brushstrokes.

Looking forward to seeing how far you can take this!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

drawMonger,

Nice!! He needs more of a waist...currently there is little space between the bottom of his last rib and the top of his pelvis...take a look at the reference closely, and notice that his waist should be more defined. I really like the linework!! It's working really well for you ~ can't wait to see more!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I'm sorry to say I haven't reviewed the rest of the thread, but I'm looking forward to spending some time looking at everyone's work.

Work in progress, just blocking out the painting and getting a feel for the colors and mood. The PSD file is actually 2000x1200 pixels, but I cropped it down to 800x600 for easy viewing purposes. I just realized I forgot to flip it back before saving. Oops.

Appx. 2hrs, Adobe PS7 and Wacom Graphire.

SevenMars,

It's great to see your work here! I think you have a really great start...there is such a nice mood to this piece ~ I think Ron is a really good model who has done a lot to inspire folks here.

I think the challenge for you will be to take this to the next level in terms of rendering without losing the basic atmosphere which you have so nicely established. Make sure to save versions of your file so that you can go back to a previous version if you so desire.

Nice work so far! Looking forward to seeing your next post. Definitely check out the other posts...some very nice work is in this thread already.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Do you think you know why that is?
Thanks!


Artweaver maybe a little bit instability, i don't know why as you said,hope they will do some better update. in Artweaver, i used charcoal pencil brush for those sketchs.you can also do this in Painter,it is the same thing.

Drawmonger,

MUCH better! Not a waist at all ~ or, what a waist!

Corvax,

WOW!!! Really nice work here! It's really great how you have captured all of the wrinkles and details of the model ~ excellent work!!!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I love the photos! Many thanks to Ron Eyre. I can't wait to get started on this session. Unfortunately, I'm crazily busy this week (again) and won't manage to get too much done before the weekend but I thought I'd drop in quickly and add a couple of comments for the last couple of pics

Corvax Looks fabulous! The way you rendered the details such as the wrinkles on the chest is great. Very nice work! I have to admit that I prefer the sketchy version though - not because it's better, just because I love that sort of artistic style. The only crit I have is perhaps the shading on his left forearm seems a little off as well as on the collar bone but those are minor things. Overall, it looks fantastic

drawMonger Looking very good! Is that pen and ink or digital? It's so hard to tell sometimes. As I mentioned above, I like that sketchy style a lot and it's working nicely for you. The hands look great, especially the lower one. I agree with Rebecca on the waist though - it could still be a little short.

SevenMars I know it's a WIP but nice painterly style and great lighting so far! I look forward to seeing your progress. It seems you've already nicely captured the essence of Ron's face.

Quick Sketch Just to Get Started

Hey guys. I haven't been around cgtalk much lately and was excited when I came across this new forum. Super talented work! Amazing to see all of the different styles and interpretations of the same reference. Anyways, I am a bit rusty with life drawing but figured I had better take the plunge and post something. This was a 10 minute gesture sketch on a Wacom in PS 7. I am going to try the other reference tomorrow.

Thanks Amerasu and Rebecca for the great feedback. I really admire the pen drawings from the golden age of illustration (esp. Willy Pogany and W. Heath Robinson)...so really like practicing this style.

Amerasu, this is done in photoshop...although i do like the pen brush in painter a lot too.

edit: How can i forget! my favourite pen artist is Heinrich Kley http://www.bpib.com/illustrat/kley.htm
