Hey everyone!

I drew a few master copies yesterday and figured i'd post them here

I drew these by hand and it took me about 40 mins each.
I used the original as references and did the linework first, after that I started slowly shading and erasing. Very simple process really.

here are the links for the originals by Michelangelo and Da Vinci

Hi Rebecca. Today I joined your Anatomy Draw-the-Heads workshop so I took a look around following your links and have found this other interesting thread of yours ... Now I understand the importance of copying masters. From now on, I'll do that EVERYDAY FOREVER (I hope)

The following are a couple of copies I did from J.L Gerome and D.G Rossetti. I have not saved any wip for them, I'll do that on the next.


Originals: Gerome - Rossetti

Charles Barque Copy- Female Head.

This was done in graphite pencil on light grey stonehenge paper. It was done completely by eye using comparative measurement. It took me about 6 months to finish working on it for 6h 2d /w. Sorry I cant find any pictures on the web of the originals. These images were copied from the Barque Drawing book. Originally they were made as lithographs for the purpose of students to copy and learn how to draw during the 19th Century. You can find more info at

Welcome to the Anatomy Forum! Good lord, these drawings are amazing! I'm pleased to see that you've started your own Personal Anatomy Thread. Will post more there.

Are you finished with your training? I saw your link to the atelier you attended. Looks fantastic!

Here's a sketch of a Bouguereau painting I just did. It took about 2 hours, because of all the folds of fabric.

^^ That is stunningly gorgeous. 2 hours, wow.

Makes me embarassed to show mine! Haha!

Hi Rebecca (if you see this) I wanted to show this here since I totally disappeared from the 50 heads marathon thread. This is what I was doing. This probably took me over 10 hours, though I always lose track.

This has been the most rewarding thing I've completed to date, and the one I've learned the most on I think. Thanks for all you do here everyone @CGtalk - it really makes a difference!
