AztcFireflower's Figures 'n' Stuff
Hello CA folks,
This is my first thread here on CA. Welcome to these pages and thanks for taking the time to stop in. Comments and constructive crits are always welcome, so please, feel free to post.
Have needed a motivation to keep up my studies. The first few posts will be of older figure work as I will try and create a history of my work and progress. Because concept art is my destination, particularly creature/character design, I will begin to add my explorations as I improve my handling of oil as well as digital painting. Last thing I wish to do is bore the heck outta anyone that comes to visit my SB. I will try and remain considerate of your sensibilities, and post only my better work.
Thanks again for visiting.
These figures are each about 20 to 45 min.
This 1st one's so I can change the thumbnail occasionally.
The Arab after J.S.Sargeant
One of the values I think of a master copy is understanding the brushwork and trying to match it with the least amount of strokes. Sargeant was a genius with his profficient and economical brushwork. This was an assignment for a class at LAAFA. We were required to copy at the same size as the original.
I really enjoyed this exercise.
I learned alot about mixing dark flesh tones and the variations with a limited palette.
