    Hi, I am new to this thread, but I try to do some copies as well.

    The ones I wanna do:
    Watercolors from Bodo Meier (a german artist - I dont think someone knows him)
    and Drew Struzan (Artworks for Movie Posters and DVD covers, like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and much more.)

    PLEASE: If anyone knows a page where I can find some high res scans of his works, it would help very much. I only get this little pieces. --°
    Does someone own the artbook ? Maybe you could scan one or two for me ?

    Fans Hals copy

    I'm in love with the work of the Dutch masters, they certainly knew their stuff -

    Original can be found over here - http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/databa...e.asp?id=13641

    I tried to get the proportions right by using the Grid method - Yay for the grid tool in photoshop and painter ^^ I learned a lot about shading skin - like how it pays to add a bit of a highlight colour when transitioning from light to shadowed areas of skin, to create a greater illusion of translucency. I hope the collar was effective in preventing her from gnawing at her stitches!!

    Here is my attempt. 2 hours in Painter and finished in Photoshop. I learned a lot on this one. The way Sargent carves out his forms using simple brushstrokes is genius. My painting looked like a flat underpainting for the majority of the time it took to paint it. As soon as I started adding the highlights, it suddenly looked dimensional. I want to do some more soon. I saved some of the process stages if anyone wants to see them.

    Here is my copy

    Great master copies everyone. There's one piece of advice I'd give though that I think everyone could utilize in this thread.

    When doing a master copy, try to capture everything about the original, the technique, the exact form, value, edges, EVERYTHING. You want yours to be indistinguishable from the original.

    The true value in doing a master copy comes from the intense study of trying to do exact replication, no matter how painful, as the nuances really begin to pop at you and you begin to understand a bit what the artist was doing and how he did it. Additionally, it will really hone your hands and your eyes. Don't be ashamed also if you takes you a long time to finish a master copy. It's meant to be an exercise moreso than a work all your own. Although the pride you gain from doing a great copy and the knowledge you gained from it is definitely all your own.
