Open Figure Drawing Workshop - NEW BARGUE - 022


Banner render - Gio Nakpil

OFDW 022: Jan. 10, 2008 - Feb. 25, 2008

Welcome to the Twentysecond
thread of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop!

This workshop is open to 2D Artists working digitally or traditionally. Some informal moderation will be gladly provided ~ however, the purpose of the Workshop is for Artists to interact with and informally critique one another’s work.

What is a Bargue Drawing?

>>>LINK<<<

Quote:
Charles Bargue is a little known academic painter from 19th Century France. Under the auspices of art dealers Goupil and Cie (Vincent and Theo Van Gogh's employers,) and along with Jean-Leon Gerome, he produced a series of two hundred or so lithographs, reproductions of which were circulated around the ateliers of the time for students to copy. Copying these drawings is supposed to teach the student about line and tone, how to create an illusion of three dimensional reality, and also to instil a sensitivity to classical beauty in painting and sculpture.

This Workshop is an update of the Bargue concept, which was to copy as accurately as possible the 2D Drawings of Charles Bargue et al. Instead of using Bargue's drawings as reference in this Workshop, we will be using Renders of 3D models, whose permission to use as reference was graciously provided by many CGTalk 3D Artists.

The goal of this Workshop is to practice shading and rendering skills in 2D. For this reason, in many cases I have requested permission to use renders of untextured models as reference.


The goal of this Workshop is to COMPLETE one or more FINISHED 2D Master Copies of the renders provided by CGTalk 3D Artists / Render Donors. The goal is to complete QUALITY finished pieces based on the 3D Renders / Reference provided.

Reference Source:

Individual CGPortfolios and Websites

************PLEASE NOTE!!!************

The renders used as reference for this Workshop is COPYRIGHT the original artists. Permission has been obtained from individual 3D Artists to use only specific individual renders for this Workshop. Wherever you post your 2D copies from this Workshop (here on CGTalk, on your website, other forums, etc.) you MUST give credit to the original artist whose work you referenced!

PLEASE NOTE that you may not just use any image from individual 3D Artist's CGPortfolios without permission. There is simply a ton of great reference available here, so I would ask that you use what is available and not request to use other work from these artists.

************************************

RULES FOR THE THREADS

1. Renders are the property of the individual 3D Artists who generously gave permission to use their renders for reference in this Workshop. ALL WORK IS COPYRIGHT THE ORIGINAL 3D ARTIST and credit must be given to them wherever you post your copies!

2. The drawings / paintings created from the 3D render reference provided here MUST be TASTEFUL,SINCERE, RESPECTFUL, and for the purpose of serious study of the human figure. Those who post silly, disrespectful, or tasteless work will have their posts deleted immediately and will no longer be allowed to post on this thread.

3. This Workshop will run from Jan. 10, 2008 - Feb. 25, 2008.

4. There is NO LIMIT to the NUMBER of posts an artist may make. However, we ask that you post only your BEST WORK, even if it is considered unfinished.

5. Artists who post comments and critiques of other artists' work on this thread must be RESPECTFUL, POLITE, and offer CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. Flaming will be NOT be tolerated, and constitutes dismissal from this and other threads.

6. I will be offering the occasional comments / critique - however, the main focus of the Open Figure Drawing Workshop threads should be on Group Critique and interaction.

7. ANY MEDIUM or STYLE may be used: Traditional or Digital Drawing or Painting. This Workshop is for 2D Artists only.

8. Please limit the SIZE of your POSTS to 800 pixels WIDTH x Appropriate pixel LENGTH. No huge posts, please!

9. Please post your WIP and finished work to this thread. However, you are encouraged to also post your work to your Personal Sketchbook Thread if you already have one, or to create one if you do not, here:

Personal Anatomy & Sketchbook Threads
http://forums.cgsociety.org/forumdisplay.php?f=200

11. Have fun, enjoy, and create great art!

+++

PLEASE NOTE: WIP (Work In Progress) images are an important part of the OFDWs and are encouraged. Please DO post WIP images as you work on your pieces.

PLEASE NOTE THAT TRACING IS NOT ALLOWED!
Tracing constitutes cheating on CGTalk, and traced work is not accepted into CGTalk's Galleries. Please freehand draw and paint. Use of a Grid is accepted.

A big thank you to gio for being the first render donor for the Workshop!

This is a great chance for 2D Artists to work from some of the best 3D renders around. Hope to see a lot of participation in this one!

PLEASE NOTE that you may not just use any image from individual 3D Artist's CGPortfolios without permission. There is simply a ton of great reference available here, so I would ask that you use what is available and not request to use other work from these artists. Thanks!

Examples of traditional Bargue drawings may be found here.

Of course not. This workshop is for anyone who wishes to use the 2D medium - be it traditional or digital. It doesn't matter to me whether your primary mode of working is 2D or 3D - in the past, the OFDWs have attracted mainly 2D people, and so I invited Intervain to create 3D specific Workshops, which you are more than welcome to participate in also. This workshop however is primarily 2D. Hope to see your work!

Mu, Intervain, and evilmaul, it's great to see some early takers! I think this is an amazing chance to work from some beautiful work. I'm pretty stoked, hoping to get in some work later on tonight.

Done, and done. Hoping the "freaks" (probably a little tired from the workshop, like me ) will come out in droves once they're sufficiently recovered from Seattle. Feel free to do a little pimpage, though. I'd like to keep the Workshop only here, though, due to the fact that copyrighted images are involved, etc.
