    Plaster Cast Drawing

    This is my first attempt at a plaster cast drawing in charcoal. I wish I could afford a Giust Gallery cast but I settled for a lower end one.
    I tried to use the sight size method, but unfortunately, the cast was too small. So in the end I had to just scale it up and do my best.
    I did rough sketch then transferred it to the final with transfer paper. (Sorry I should have taken more photos of the process). Any tips would help.
    Thanks, Steven

    Not bad!

    Do you have other shots of it?
    What's going on with the eye on the shadow side?

    A really nice rendering!

    Sorry the photos are not that great. Doing a cast drawing was a lot harder that i thought.
    I was doing some Bargue copies and working from the flat was certainly easier. I struggled with the shadows
    cause every time I stepped back to measure or stepped to the side I had a different perspective on the shadows than when I was up close.
    It's not till I was done that I started finding problems. The eyes were tough too.
    Here are a few more photos

    Thanks for the new photos.

    You mean you looked at the cast while standing at the board?
    Never do that. Always observe the cast from your stand point, then step to the board, draw, step back and then look again.

    bjoern makes a interesting point, a drawing can look great from upclose but fall apart (value relationship wise) from afar. always look at the whole. but very nice drawing man keep up the studies.
